Look at the shoulders on the coat. CG had them made longer to balance his large head, an attribute that RL shares. Great photo. Wasn't "Dexter" in "Philadelphia Story" a take-off on '30s style icon Anthony Drexel Biddle, of the horizontally striped shirts? So even Grant may have had a prior model. I don't know why all this seems somehow related to member Manton.In keeping with the discussion about RL, I think he is chasing the dream of Cary Grant (his personal style icon) but he can't sell that look exactly since it wont look good on just anyone. Â Just the same, look at how much style this man had.
Good question. I never heard that, and it never occured to me. But it makes sense: C. K. Dexter Haven ... A. J. Drexell Biddle ... could be.Wasn't "Dexter" in "Philadelphia Story" a take-off on '30s style icon Anthony Drexel Biddle, of the horizontally striped shirts?
Only because on another post you discussed horizontally striped shirts with Alexander Kabbaz that Anthony Biddle would have worn. Never have seen any other posts on this subject on the forum. The analogy does now seem strained, at best.[What on earth do I have to do with this discussion? Â Love that suit, though.
Too funny. You have to love the buying public: RL tells them something to their face, sells them something else altogether and they buy it. What I don't get though, is that I f he wants more people to dress "˜appropriately' why does he sells items that he himself considers inappropriate for a particular situation? (this applies to sartorial wears only, causal is a whole other matter) Jon.Not a big fan of notched collar tuxedos myself. Although I'm not against them in principle, I think that they lack the flair of a peaked lapel and elegance of a shawl lapel. The funny thing is that this style directly contradicts the information given on the Polo.com site: In the strictest terms, the only proper tuxedo is in black or midnight blue and is styled with either peaked lapels or a shawl collar. The former may be double-breasted. A notched lapel tuxedo, while widely available, is hardly classic. It should be tailored in pure wool barathea or piquÃ, and the facing on the lapels and down the outer side of each pant leg should be satin, faille or grosgrain. A well-tailored tuxedo is also finished with buttons sewn into the trouser waistband to accommodate a pair of braces as well as a loop under the left lapel for a boutonniere. Single or double-breasted formal dinner jackets in deep green, burgundy velvet, ivory wool or a subtle Black Watch tartan plaid are acceptable alternatives to a tuxedo. Both can be paired with formal trousers, which should never be cuffed. from: http://style.polo.com/askralp....on_id=6
