Check out these two dandies:
“Kind of a pleasant surprise from both of them,” they said backhandedly.
We admit to an occasional disappointment with Neil’s occasionally dull and inoffensive menswear choices. He’s been known to break out a Thom Browne or something now and then, so he’s not completely without style instincts. But if we’re being fully honest with you, we must enter in the record the time one of us yelled in frustration at the sight of him in another banker’s suit, “You’re skinny, rich and gay, bitch! WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?”
With this look, he has shut our mouths. For now. Love the color and the collar, to put things succinctly. We question the shiny plain-ness of the tie and his un-shot cuffs are causing our eyelids to twitch in furious response, but it’s a sharp, slighly dandified look for a poledance that pretty much begs for that sort of thing.
This is the second plaid pantsuit we’ve seen this week, so it behooves us to declare it a micro-trend at the very least. We can’t say we disapprove. It strikes us as a fairly easy look to pull off, although it’s so specific in its style that you can’t do much with it. For instance, a print blouse underneath one. Not gonna work, dear.
We go back and forth on whether women should button their jackets for pictures. It doesn’t bother us so much here, but that may be due to the fit, which is very good. We’d also like a ruling on the makeup sitch. We love the hair and the eyes, but the pale lip looks a little ghostly to us.
