Over the last few days, the Toronto Film Festival has provided some great menswear moments. Our favorite was Jake Gyllenhall’s brown corduroy three-piece suit from Burberry, shown below. The shoes should have been switched out, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a corduroy three-piece in such a slim cut. All the proportions and fit are great, and it is just a phenomenal suit for fall.
In searching for alternatives, we noticed the complete opposite of how a suit should fit. Case in point, this Lauren by Ralph Lauren suit being sold at Macy’s. It’s hard to make things look bad on a model, but even this guy must know that the jacket is eating him for breakfast, and that the proportions are just generally out of whack. Keep things trim and properly fitted for your body type. That doesn’t mean you have to spend Gyllenhall money on a suit — we can surely help you out in that department, though, sadly, no corduroy three-pieces in stock right now.
