That does look pretty good. The details come together well, with the peaked lapels, the pocket square, etc. Much better than some celebrities I've seen lately... It's a good look.

I think his tie knot is reasonably well-scaled to the size of his collar leaves, maybe a touch big but not grotesquely so. But he's a smaller-framed man, so maybe he should err on the side of a smaller knot.

Trouser break looks fine.

I've read he goes to Timothy Everest. Any members intrigued by the idea of a one-button, peak-lapel suit (but not able to pay for bespoke, as Cruise surely did) might be able to find one here for about $640, incl shipping to the US:

It is interesting to see the distinction between suits and dinner suits being blurred.

Obama and his notch lapel single vent dinner jacket and Cruise with his single button peak lapel suit.

I personally wouldn't go fo a single button suit (other than a dinner suit) but I am planning on having a SB2 with peak lapels made at some point, hopefully later this year.

According to Esquire magazine some companies (ie. Z Zegna) will be pushing one button suits this year as a trim fitting, more contemporary option to traditional two and three button suits.
Well...okay. I suppose I just have a strong preference for the classic 2-button style, and don't understand why designers are so quick to change the number of buttons. It seems like making a jacket 1-button, or 3-, or 5-, is a cheap cop-out way to make a suit scream "contemporary!" (yes, I think 3-button suits do not look classic). Subtlety is more my bag; there are plenty of ways to modernize or update suits such as shoulder construction, lapel width, waist, gorge height, etc - even button stance. Just keep the 2 buttons! Of course, tuxedo jackets/dinner jackets are typically just 1 button.

/not usually such a traditionalist :rolleyes:

They change things to make people buy more! (If you are bothered about being "in fashion").
