Someone needs to fix his coat collar and that Windsor knot.
^^^ Grungydan, that remark sounds like something that would come out of a homophobic frat boy, and I would think it beneath a grown man. This is a men's fashion forum, and we ALL pay attention to clothing details, be we straight or gay.
I love the show, but this outfit here is just all mismatched. Low-rise, belted trousers with a waistcoat? And the waistcoat is the same colour as the suit yet doesn't match it. It looks like a mistake. And those lapels are absurd.
Keep in mind, one of the premises of the show is that Neil "inherited" his collection of suits from his landlord's dead husband.
It is a hodgepodge, and designed to be tad eccentric (and about 40 years out of date).
This isn't a man of means, this is a man making due with available resources. Although the suits are bespoke, they are second hand (and only possibly re-tailored). The only new things in his warddrobe is probably his shoes.
But Neal is supposed to be the same exact size as Byron. The suits don't look like authentic 60s suits either, but more like modern fashion. Rarely do I see costume designers try to make the clothes look authentic in this type of situation.
my bad, shore living. i had only skimmed through the thread.i don't normally watch burn notice, but they do have some nice threads judging from the small sample i've observed. then how could a show set in miami not be fashionable?I chimed in on new shows, on USA, and need to add Jeffery Donavan on Burn Notice. Though living in Palm Beach,can't wear a suit during the day may through oct!
Personally, I think the character "Michael Scott" on The Office dresses pretty well. Even though he is kind of a weirdo.
Also the character "Oscar".
Anyone agree or disagree with this?
