Fern Mallis on Terrence Williams' look: I'm not crazy about shiny fabric, but this isn't bad with the black shirt and black tie. He looks very handsome and very put-together. The average Joe can look at this and see he can wear a black shirt and tie and look sophisticated. But it's about the right attitude, and he has it.

Ben Tobar on Jrue Holiday's look: Does a great job differentiating himself from the pack by opting for a navy suit. The average Joe can look at this and consider navy as a valid option for an important event in the summer. But what really works is the softness of his tie and that his pocket square is a shade brighter. It really gives some life to his look.

Tobar on DeMar DeRozen's look: I like the seriousness of his getup. The intensity of his tie definitely draws attention to his face. Normally, when shopping for ties, guys fall in two categories -- Mr. Flash and Mr. Subtle. The goal is to be a hybrid of the two, bold but reserved. He does that.

Tobar on Gerald Henderson's look: The look is very conservative. He could speed it up by opting for a suit that has narrower lapels and a lower button stance. He also has a very sloped shoulder stance, in which case he should opt for a suit with a roped shoulder and higher armhole, which would broaden his shoulders.
