    I love the powder blue peeking through. Does anyone know what boots he has on, I’ve been looking for something similar.

    There’s a disheveled nonchalance about him…as if he slept in those clothes last night. Maybe he did.

    Absolutely perfect ensemble! This guy has great taste.

    I remember this pic too from the Rugby blog. Very cool love the color of his shirt and the shawl collar sweater. Who can go wrong with a Burberry trench as well.

  • Hunter Parrish

    Culture  

    Hunter Parrish was in the running for the lead in High School Musical (and rumored to be the favorite)—a trilogy gig that would produce mounds of cash and fame for Zac Efron. But he pulled out. So it seems only fitting that in 17 Again, Parrish plays an insecure high school bully that repeatedly pounds on Efron. He’s not losing sleep over the lost millions though—afterall, those millions came at the cost of being typecast. A recent role in It’s Complicated put him in esteemed company with Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep. Up next for Parrish is a sixth season playing entrepreneurial young pot dealer Silas Botwin on the Showtime hit Weeds.

    Hunter wears a Band of Outsiders toggle coat ($1,800), Champion at Vassar College bookstore hoodie ($50), Steven Alan shirt ($168), Black Fleece tie ($150), Save Khaki khakis ($100), sneakers by Converse by John Varvatos ($110) and Smart Turnout socks. Read the entire GQ piece for more on this rising star.

    I remember this shoot I bought the magazine just because of this spread. It was a cool shoot and just like Connetiquette (BTW love the name) and her/his co-workers it was all for inspiration.

    Yes, I admire PSH’s portrayal of Truman Capote. He is currently one of my favorite actors and one of the best actors around. Toby Jones portrayal of Truman in the film “Infamous” was also quite excellent. A funny coincidence that two films about the same period in Truman’s life were filmed at the same time. Which is the truer interpretation of Truman’s character? Both films agree that he fell deeply in love with Perry Smith and that love destroyed him.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 2/27/2010 at 7:49 PM:

    Have any of you seen the Philip Seymour Hoffman’s portrayal in Capote?


    Ian left a comment on 2/26/2010 at 9:53 PM:

    Those penetrating eyes! His ‘In Cold Blood’ is the only novel that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up: first it recounts a horrific senseless slaughter of a entire family and second it is so exquisitely well written it is almost painful. Unlike my post, which is painful because it is so poorly written. Ha!

    I adore this photograph. That is all.

  • The Best New Designer In America 2010

    Miscellany  

    "Every man should own a navy blazer."    —Billy Reid

    Image via Peggy Sirota

    The best new designer in America is a southern dandy in the heart of Manhattan (you are already aware of this if you follow Unabashedly Prep on twitter). Well, sort of. Billy Reid started out in Florence, Alabama six years ago and has brought his whiskey-soaked aesthetic to the Big Apple on Bond Street. This is actually Reid’s second time around the CFDA block (he was awarded with the same honor in 2001 under his William Reid moniker before 9/11 sabotaged his burgeoning growth). I'll drink to that three-piece suit on the right.

    “Every man should own a navy blazer”. What a genius. Fashion that will not last.

    I haven’t noticed that there’s a man and a baby on the mirror. This picture is full of surprises.

    I agree that every man (and well dressed woman, as I’d like to think of myself) needs to own a navy blazer (I have 2). Love the photo, I also have black and white oxfords like those pictured. Classic yet chic.

    I like this picture! They all have a very interesting look. I’m loving those spectator shoes on 2 of the models there!


    Cam left a comment on 2/24/2010 at 4:54 PM:

    I fully agree with Mr. Reid’s statement about the blue blazer….... I’d love to find a nice one that isn’t $700 though


    EdoubleM.blogspot.com left a comment on 2/24/2010 at 3:00 PM:

    Yes that light grey three-piece suit with the white pocket square and the white button details are definitely worth drinking to!
