    Aside from the sizing; with exception to the jacket, this guys ensemble just invites you to say something so he can reply, “frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!”

    Love it! Not a fan of saddle shoes (the bloody things should be banned, IMO), but this young fellow looks smashing. Well done chaps.

    I don’t care if his blazer fits or not; the signet ring alone makes this guy a winner in my book.

    I actually think his jacket fits very well. It’s not fashion forward, and ‘too small,’ a la Thom Browne, but does in fact look like he probably had it tailored to fit him as it does. For instance, the sleeves are a perfect fit, and he’s showing the perfect amount of cuff, and he doesn’t look like a tall guy, so I’d guess the sleeves were shortened. The pants, however, look like they’re straight out of the 80s, which may be what he going for, but I think if they were shorter, and slimmed down in the leg some, they’d be much more flattering. But if we believe that all these ‘true preps’ are so secure in their race and class status that they neither need, seek, nor appreciate flattery, then I guess his outfit is, by dint of the fact that he has become defined by the prep renaissance as someone who is always already perfectly dressed (because what he wears IS perfect itself—because it’s done effortlessly, with a got to hell attitude, or whatever) perfect…

    Nice looking, conservative outfit.  I’d ditch the cufflinks since the blazer buttons give enough metal to the sleeve.

    The pinky ring is pretty hilarious.

    Finally, a man wearing a jacket that fits him, instead of one that is at least one size too small.
