The Met's Costume Institute Gala the other day brought out the usual mass of those whose business it is to be in the public eye. And though it is so easy to be critical, how else are we to learn?
We find most of the more common sartorial transgressions on an otherwise very good looking Mr. Matt Bomer. From the bottom up:
- open laced bluchers are inappropriately informal
- too much trouser break; an inch is about the maximum
- overly tight jacket is pulling
- lounge suit pocket flaps; at a minimum the flaps should be tucked into his pockets
- jacket collar off the back of the neck
These, the uncovered waistband and overly long jacket sleeves are unfortunately the most common errors made these days by men who appear to actually be trying. So many are not. And give credit to the ample display of shirt cuff, properly disarrayed pocket square and nicely tied bow.
Many women attendees on the other hand looked wonderful, Diane Kruger for one. This being a menswear publication however, I leave you to click through for yourselves.
