How lovely does Simon Crompton, from Permanent Style, look in his wedding suit?
This is relatively informal wedding attire for a man executed perfectly.  It’s also a near perfectly-fitting suit.
The elements: blue suit, white shirt, white square, wedding tie, black shoes.  All spectacular.

Permanent Style’s Simon Crompton on his Globe-Trotter luggage.

Back when I was but a 16-year-old aspiring sartorialist, I found a copy of this book at the Civic Center library in San Francisco.  I was looking for inspiration for a prom outfit, believe it or not.  The swing thing was in full force, and the inspiration was the style of the 1930s and ’40s.  I checked the book out, and forgot to return it.  I may have found it and returned it four or five years later.  I don’t have it, now.  Which is too bad, because A) it’s amazing and B) it’s going for $400+ on Amazon.
