I’m sorry. We’re supposed to take men’s style tips from Flusser? I say No.
I appreciate the book — I own it. It has some mediocre archival images. But this man is not a source for stylish dressing!
Look at him. His suit is ill-fitting, his haircut is a horrible Graydon Carter buttcut, and he seems really uptight. Style is the sum of your parts.
By the way, I think Charlie looks great here, much cooler that Flusser, who is way way over dressed: pocket square, gold pinky ring, pin stripes, French cuffs/gold links, etc. It’s an atrocity.
He talks about color, proportion, head shape, etc. but he really isn’t up to speed with style as most readers of ACL are.
Personally, I want to know more about Charlie’s personal style. I hear he ‘buys’ all his wardrobe at RL purple. What do the credits say?

I’ve learned a lot from Flusser’s books. So much so I called his shop and spoke with Mark Rykenn who spent about 15 minutes on the phone telling me what a moron I was.
I like Flusser here. I enjoyed his insight. Based on this interview I’m gonna give him another chance.
