There are many questions to be asked about this.

The kicked-up heel?

The hovering hand?

The inexplicable runners-and-suit combination? And the pointed toe as he trips lightly across the lawn?

Go Fug Yourself points out, perfectly, that he looks like the bad guy in a tennis musical:

He looks like he’s leaping into frame as the bad guy in a musical called I Say, Anyone For Tennis? or yes, a Wes Anderson flick titled The Racketeer, or perhaps the more florid The Nefarious Motives of Jacques.
