    Looking good. I like the low contrast for the older man with some gray in his beard. The fit is impeccable. The full spread on the collar is interesting. The suit case is large and clunky, but practical. I wonder if there is a better option there, although I think it’s fine. Overall a very masculine put together look.

      I actually thought the contrast was a little too low for him, curious what Tanner thinks.

      The spread collar makes it sort of look like he’s being choked.

      Huge fan of the jacket and I like the subtly dark-brown shoes. Somehow, even though I feel like they’d be “too close” to the color of the pants, it seems to work. Is it because the pants are such a warm shade of dark grey that the brown works?

        I do like the contrast. If you pay close attention to his skin tone, there’s some rudiness in there that isn’t just a plain white. At the same time, his hair is a gold-blonde that is fading to grey. If I were doing a consult I’d give him a relatively muted contrast, so the lack of any major contrast in the overall appearance does a great job framing his face. His skin just looks healthy.

        Good eye on the shoes too.

          I’m not sure if this is some ‘irreverent’ modern slang, but “consult” is
          a verb, not a noun, so you’re doing a “consultation,” not a “consult”.
          I love the hell out of your site and I hope that you’ll excuse my pedantic aside, but how your present yourself linguistically is just as much an indicator of good style as your clothing, in my opinion.

            Definitely some irreverence on my part.

    Wow, I want that green jacket! I would never pair that shirt with it, though. I just don’t think they have any affinity for each other.
