    That looks terrible.

    His body frame doesn't match his trousers, imho.

    But the shoes are really nice. Wonder what they are.

    Echo everyone's comments that the second guy's trousers suck. Can see the hem line too.

    Aside from the pants, I think he looks excellent. Maybe that`s the way he prefers his pants, but I don`t think the silouette is right for him.

    Are you serious?
    I think it looks ridiculous.

    Thirded. That's an abomination.

    Love the fit/cut of the jackets in both pics.

    Not to mention he's like 50 years old trying to pull off an extremely "young" style... So there's an additional sad angle to him forcing this abysmal outfit.

    The first photograph is my favorite. He's a fine example of a well-dressed gentleman. Timeless.

    There is no way that guy is near 50, and a sportcoat and white cords is not a young look anyhow. They jacket looks very nice, but I would doubt that it was Rubinacci or other traditional Neapolitan tailor. The chest is far too clean for that. It is probably too long for Rubinacci as well.

    I'd dress almost exactly like the second guy, except that the pants need to be either slimmer in the thighs and crotch or looser in the calves and cuff. Also, this pic shows exactly why I get everything cuffed. I wouldn't wear the scarf though, I don't get scarves without outwear. The shoes are amazing. Actually, this guy looks a lot like me and dresses like me, except that I'm thinner and much more handsome. But you guys already knew that.

    Those pants look very odd. Above the knee and below the knee look like they are from two different styles.

    I agree, If the upper thigh area was leaner it wouldn't look as odd. They are very full in the thigh yet very narrow and high on an ankle boot at bottom.

    I agree with the changes that you suggest. The look overall is very good but needs cuffs. Hell, what doesn't? I like scarves without outerwear, but I only need to put on a topcoat a couple ties a year and own a lot of scarves.
