Of all the menswear advertisements in the media these days I like the Polo Purple Label ads best, for their use of color and pattern if not for the extreme cut of the clothes themselves. The pocket square in the first photo is a spectacular choice.
The stylist(s) who did the campaign were well grounded in the past. In the photo, a brown dinner jacket a la Noël Coward.
The once common scarf worn in lieu of a necktie on less formal occasions, though I could do without the shirt collar.
And my personal favorite, a leather jacket and cardigan combination that recalls a portrait of the late Prince Serge Obolensky.
