I always come back to this picture of Lee Norwood.  It’s a great example of being comfortable in your clothes.  More importantly, after perusing some of Tommy’s archives, I recognized how outfits like this will look just as good to me 10 years down the line.

The jacket fits perfectly and there is a subtle perfection in how all the elements work together.  The medium gray wool trousers create a perfect base for the Made-in-Italy Rugby sportcoat (really wish that one I bought fit me).  The forest green and burgundy tie with the contrast collar shirt (which, admittedly, I usually hate) creates the perfect accent leading to his face.  Lee also includes some great personal quirks that are ACTUALLY NATURAL like properly fitting suspenders and a pinned collar.

This one goes out to the Rugby originators.  One for the ages.
