Weekend Wear With Savoir Faire

What a perfect suit for some weekend dressing with Savoir Faire!

Not only do I love the casual elegance of this suit by Billy Reid, but also the photograph itself! Reminiscent of a Magritte painting with the man in the background holding an umbrella. Full of the surrealist imagery and undertones, a fitting way to start the weekend, don't you think?


  1. Hello David:
    A most arresting advertisement as you say. And yes, most definitely, it has the surreal quality of a Magritte painting.

    Let us hope that in reality there will not be a need for the umbrella, since it would be such a shame if this extremely stylish suit was caught in the rain.

    Happy Weekend!

  2. yea i love the photograph, thank you for sharing David!
    Happy Weekend :)

  3. David I agree and love the advertisement, as well as your Magritte reference. Very true.

  4. Love the "casual" suiting look ... still classy but not stuffy!

    ps. I just watched a fantastic movie on "Coco Chanel" ... her early years ... the slant was "Coco before Chanel" {it is in French with subtitles} and totally thought of you! Have you seen it? It was so interesting!

  5. I'm having a hard time getting past the chiseled cheekbones!

  6. Very Magritte! Great reference on your part! Hope your weekend surreal...only in a good way of course! xoxo

  9.'re just going to force me to buy a pink shirt, aren't you? :)

  10. I stocked up on Billy Reid before I went to Australia this winter. And now I can wear it here in the hot weather too. Cool. But Made in China has started to creep into his collection. Quelle damage.
