I met this impeccably dressed gentleman in the garden restaurant of my hotel in Amsterdam. It was a sweltering 90 degrees which is why, he told me he was so dressed down. "I am always dressed in a suit for lunch if I can help it, and the weather permits". His cravat and matching high waisted pants are pretty spectacular. And even though this outfit is formally over the top he manages to make it look cool with the classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses.
We talked about his general dismay with the decline of elegance and tradition in men's fashion. "You know in the top restaurants in the world it's not even necessary to wear a jacket to dinner, EVEN in Paris, he lamented."
