New York Street Fashion: banal question with a sublime answer



Dear viewers,

Please meet Tom. He just had his pants hemmed at Thom Browne. When I asked him the banal question, "What inspired you to dress like this today?" he answered with the most sublime response, "I was looking at some pictures of my grandpa at a baseball game in the 1940's. He was always impeccably dressed in suits and ties. So I am wearing what I am wearing today with no special destination to go to...to dress like my grandpa did in the 40's"

Sincerely,

Craig

p.s. I also liked his haircut, which definitely isn't 40's

personally for me, the whole thom browne look, im neutral to it. no strong feelings either way to it.

but the color and stripe of his suit is beautiful. and the cuffs!!! it's all about what's happening at his wrists.

His glasses and haircut are very nice as well.

I love that there are people in NY who wear beautifully tailored suits just for the heck of it! Folks in Australia only tend to wear suits to work or special occasions and even then, the suits are often cheap or hired. Every man should own a lovely suit!

What a great answer!

those stripes on the cuff, so cool!
man that answer is so much cooler than 'i dunno, i just rolled out of bed and threw on the first thing i picked up'.

I like him already.

And that grosgrain (or whatever) in his cuffs is superb.

The detailing on that suit is so cool! Plus I'm loving the cut of it, wonderfully tailored!

Thom Browne suits are just great, quirky but classy. Nice stripes as well.

love the tailored suits but not too keen on the shorterned hem length, wearing no socks with a smart shoes is a no no for me. He's brave lol
