  • What do you think about this look?

    The guy on the left, I completely fell in love with his look and am looking to steal it (hae, hae). Coincidentally, I'm getting a made-to-fit suit made soon aswell as s shirt so here's my chance. What should I tell the tailor? I'm expecially interested in the collar and the fit of the suit.

    Oh and I was also thinking a white presidential pocket square would go great with it to get that Mad Men look without exagaration.

    With the three button jacket and the skinny tie, it's a very mod look. Be aware that a jacket like that will tend to make your torso look shorter. I've always liked the mod look in theory, but I don't think I can pull it off (makes me looks like a fireplug). If you want a more "Mad Men" vibe, go with a two-button jacket.

      I didn't notice it was a three button, I definitely like two buttons better. Also I'm a little scared of getting a suit that fit. And about the collar - how do I get my collar to fold around the tie like that? Could he be using collar clip there or is it just a matter of getting a narrow and thin collar?

        He's wearing either a tab or bar collar.

        You can get the clip-on bars, but I agree with the above link that it's a bit cheesy. If you really want that look, invest in a shirt with either a tabbed or eyeletted collar.

            Red Garland,

            After reading Lib's writeup on Modern Tailor(here), I was thinking that their shirt would work for you, they have a round collar and a mini round collar which look similar. For $20 it's hard to beat for a MTM, even if its not amazing.

              The OP is trying to recreate a look: skinny ties and button-tab collared shirts. It's a classic '50s-'60s look that has appeared on countless men, both then and more recently. In fact, James Bond was just dressed similarly in Skyfall.
