Donald continues his sartorial tour of the seventies, including a stop at Carrie White’s prom.
We don’t know, you guys. We think he’s really well suited to soulful ’70s styles, but so far, the looks have all been awkward or gimmicky; sometimes both. For the most part, it doesn’t feel like these looks have been interpreted or updated or given a twist. They feel like they’ve been lifted wholesale from the decade; like costumes rather than clothes.
First, the shirt and pants are pretty great selections. We think what frustrates us most, aside from how potentially well-suited he is for these styles, is how he tends to wear them in wholly unflattering ways. He’s not a guy who should be tucking his polo shirts into his Pop-Pop pants. That’s not a criticism, because very few guys who aren’t models can get away with this kind of thing. On the one hand, we’re happy he added a belt this time; on the other, we just wish he’d untuck. And do up one button so the neckline doesn’t look sloppy. And for the love of god, get over your love of old-man loafers.
We feel kind of bad because this is pretty much perfect for him in every way, but we’ve become so gimlet-eyed about his ’70s predilections that we don’t find this as charming as we should. It’s not wrong and he definitely looks cute. It’s just that he overdid the ’70s thing lately, which lessened the impact of this one.
