The Pale Suit, Now Playing it straight.
A beautifully structured straight fall of flat pale wool, in a paleness somewhere between fawn and grey- the long, vertical lines marked off by rows of gunmetal buttons. The planning here is all subtlety and charm.... the narrow set-in sleeves, narrow flip of collar: the offhand pockets in the skirt; the jacket's quiet little finale of welt seaming- this, restated in the sleeves. Suit of brushed wool broadcloth by Ben Zuckerman. Gloves by Fuchs, Bracelets, heavy spirals of gold, from Tiffany, Adolfo's wrapped kerchief of shiny brown leather.
