The blue/gray combo is right up my alley and I love double breasted jackets!
Button down collar and no tie. Very clean and neat.
MistahWong gets it absolutely correct.
Because I’m sick in bed with MAN FLU EPIC PROPORTIONS for the last 4 days..
* & these are just my opinion so take them how you would
What’s wrong with this from top to bottom:
- Shirt collar points are visible, better if they were touching or below the lapel roll
- The middle button should be positioned at his natural waist, it isn’t at the moment according to the visual imbalance from the pant rise, the spacing between the buttons are also out of proportion, & funnily the hip pockets seem well positioned
- Length of jacket is TOO short
- Length of sleeve is TOO long
- Rise of pants look too long or he is not wearing them properly i.e. he is wearing them as if they are jeans.
- Please finish the hems for the photo shoot, don’t just roll them up underneath.What’s right with this from top to bottom:
- Shoulder width
- Chest room
- Lapel balance
- Rounded open quartersAgain promotion material like this as well as the badly stylised magazines is to blame, not the youth as they know no better.Adrien Savauge really doesn’t get the shine he should…

As Different As Night and Day
There are various rules for how men should dress according to the time of day. Many of them are simply carry-overs from English conventions on proper evening dress, but I think a few also have their own merits.
For example, a white shirt works better at night because white frames the face better under artificial lighting. Likewise, smooth calf, particularly in black, can look considerably more stunning than a matte suede. Calf will gleam from the reflecting streetlights, whereas suede will look rather unremarkable when there’s not enough light to show off its nap. This is why I think every man should have a pair of black calf shoes, even if he doesn’t go to many formal functions.
I also don’t think certain lighter-colored garments should ever be worn at night, but this is a rather fuzzy area. If you have the occasion, a classic white or cream dinner jacket will obviously look quite fantastic, as can a cream linen or solid tan wool suit on a casual summer’s evening. However, I think the acceptability starts to weaken once you get into those brighter garments that principally express the cheerfulness of daytime - for example, loud chinos or light-colored shoes. Those are best worn when it’s sunny out, in my opinion.
So, when I can, I try to get dressed according to the time of day that I’m going out. If it’s in the morning or afternoon, I may wear a blue shirt, mid-toned jacket, and brown suede shoes. If I’m wearing a tie, it might also be of a brighter color, but doesn’t have to be. If it’s at night, I’ll wear a white shirt, darker jacket, and black calf shoes. The tie will likewise be dark. In this way, I think I better reflect the time of the day’s mood and work well with my environment. After all, the expressions of these two kinds of ensembles are as different as night and day.
A clean slightly lighter grey suit, white shirt and a black bowtie is what Im wearing for my wedding. Slightly rougher fabric on the suit though.
Abandoned in store while my colleagues introduce The Armoury II to the world, I have resorted pulling apart my environment and re-making it. Sometimes beautiful things come from such destruction.
