    Just like most everyone, I definately dig the contrasting laces. It’s the details that count. I the fit, the colors of his threads. He definately doesn’t like 10 feet tall!

    Perfection! I love the red laces. They highlight the red brick soles. I think I’ll do the same with my own saddle shoes. Funny enough I’ve been looking out for bright cardigans for spring.

    Great look on a very tall young man. I am definitely a fan of the yellow cardigan because it gives off a care free attitude.

    6’9”?! I’m 6’5” and trying to find things that fit is always an adventure. Especially since I’m only a 32” inseam. Anyway, this kid looks fantastic. Definitely fits in the Highland Park scenery behind him.

    This look is straight out of the early 60s, aka Spring time Mad Men. I am tall and thin as well (6’6”), finding dress shirts and jackets that fit properly are incredibly difficult, nearly everything has to be tailored. Also, I dig how the red laces really highlight the red brick soles.

    Love the colored laces. Just grabbed red/orange to put onto my brown suede chukkas and blue.white saddles respectively.

    I agree on the great fi and I like the contrasting laces.
    Also, great use of bright colors throughout.
    I’d like to see a jacket in a color different from the pants, but that’s definitely nitpicking on my part.

    Yowza.  Looks like a tall drink of water to me.

    Finding clothes that fit right is difficult when you’re tall and slim. I can attest to this, being 6’2” and 160 lbs. Basically nothing that’s long enough will also be the correct width so tailoring is always necessary. He looks good though.

    Tall and slender is hard to dress for.  I am only 6’4” but it can be difficult to find outfits that do not elongate your frame.  At 6’9” he looks tailored and grounded.
