I must say that, with great respect for Alan Flusser, his personal style is certainly not mine. I make no judgments here, just a statement on preferences. The checks and plaids in his suits and sports coats are rather loud for my personal taste. I do like some bold colours and patterns, but for me, that should be confined to a single item in an ensemble and should gracefully combine with the other patterns and colours in the palette for that ensemble. But then, I also find distasteful some of the patterns and colours used by an eminently influential figure in men's style, the late Duke of Windsor. So perhaps it is me, rather than these sartorial paragons, who could be the odd man out, LOL.
