    His outfit (minus cap and facial hair) is just awesome.

    There’s something so lovely about a low, curly ponytail.

  • Cargo

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    The recent shrinking silhouette of the cargo pant has me thinking about them in a new way. Michael Bastian has been advocating them for several seasons now and they look equally as sharp dressed up or down on this gentleman.

    Noteworthy: Crockett & Jones cordovan wingtips, navy double-breasted sport coat, slim fitting cargo pant.

    This look leaves me feeling pulled in two directions - the top half looks nice but maybe I’m just not daring enough to think that its OK to mix the look of cargo pants with a preppy top. Then again, I am also vehemently against wearing cargo pants unless you are in the military. They just don’t send the kind of message I ever would want to send.


    SSI left a comment on 9/21/2011 at 8:59 AM:

    I do like the overall look for a casual / dress mixture.  I’d be interested in trying this with a more tailored DB jacket and khaki colored cargo trousers with less of a roll.  DB jackets are tricky and I’m convinced the only way to do it right is either bespoke or at least made-to-measure.


    Michael left a comment on 9/20/2011 at 8:00 AM:

    In regards to your shorter stature, good use of clean, uninterrupted lines will add some height.


    J.P. left a comment on 9/19/2011 at 9:03 AM:

    The double-breasted jacket, scarf, tie and even the haircut are great, in kind of a between-the-wars Britain kind of way.


    John left a comment on 9/19/2011 at 6:28 AM:

    I agree the top half is nice, as are the shoes.


    fluffy left a comment on 9/19/2011 at 4:42 AM:

    It’s a good look.


    Scott Alexander left a comment on 9/19/2011 at 1:00 AM:

    @BKH—I appreciate your boldness. The top half looks excellent and jacket fits rather well.


    AEV left a comment on 9/18/2011 at 8:53 PM:

    When I require a scarf, I wear socks…being needlessly cold isn’t fashionable.


    Laguna Beach Fogey left a comment on 9/18/2011 at 7:35 PM:

    I like almost everything about this, including his hairstyle, wonderful sport coat, and C&J wingtips.

    @trip:  I can assuredly say that I agree at least 70%, perhaps a little more; the best parts are going on above the waistline.

    @BKH:  Up front, I strongly admire your sense of style and the unbounded guts it takes to be photographed and placed prominently in the style blogosphere.  Well done, Sir.

    In terms of the fashionable sense, I actually like what you have going quite well.  I would be interested in seeing the same look with the trousers rolled one less time, such that the bottom of the pant leg rests perhaps 1/4 inch above the top of the shoes.  Speaking of which, the long wings look quite sharp and play well with the rest of the attire. 

    I am especially intrigued, and in the good sense, by your choice of layers on top.  Again, well done, Sir.


    BKH left a comment on 9/18/2011 at 6:56 PM:

    The reason that my legs do look short is because I am only 5’5”.

    Thank you for your constructive criticisms. We all have our own sense of style.


    trip left a comment on 9/18/2011 at 6:01 PM:

    From the waist up, this is good.


    RowBoat left a comment on 9/18/2011 at 5:57 PM:

    I’m not sure if it’s just the style of the cargo pants or mixed with the longer cut of the sport coat, but this makes his legs appear shorter.

    I like his tie

    Noteworthy: this young lady caught my eye at the Tommy Hilfiger show with her use of bright colors echoing the men's line Hilfiger paraded down High Line park minutes prior. Though the individual pieces aren't necessarily preppy, the overall spirit of the look is a timely interpretation of the twist on prep currently making the rounds at fashion week.

    I believe the bag is Balenciaga


    Rebecca left a comment on 9/19/2011 at 7:56 PM:

    Where on earth did that bag come from…. or the dress.  I adore it all… on the fringes of prep, but in a very good way.  (Love your eye, Castleberry)

    Awesome.  Killer look.

  • Brad Goreski

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    While I was shaking hands and kissing babies at the Tommy Hilfiger men's show, I ran into celebrity stylist Brad Goreski. Some of you may know Goreski from three seasons on The Rachel Zoe Project. He recently wrapped filming his new Bravo show It's a Brad Brad World which will air during the 2011-2012 season. The docu-series follows Goreski as he embarks on his new business venture and tries to maintain his personal life.

    Noteworthy: shawl collar madras tuxedo jacket, teardrop aviator sunglasses.

    The aviators and bow tie look right with that jacket.

    I love the jacket. The cordovan creepers are awesome.

    I like the look he is trying for.

    Love everything about this - great jacket, great shoes, great look! Top Gun meets Caddyshack!

    Brad, you are awesome!

    I like the old Brad look!

    Amanda left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 2:20 PM:

    I really like Brad, loved him in Rachel Zoe.  I would have to agree that this is more how LA does Prep, not so traditional prep.  To each his own.


    Caroline Fontenot left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 12:34 PM:

    Brad was the best part of Rachel Zoe…can’t wait for his new show! He is extremely quotable and quirky, I’ve been looking forward to this image since you tweeted you’d be shooting him. Amazing!

    Love the bow and the shades. Any ideas what brand the sunglasses are? Look too small to be Ray-Ban Outdoorsmans.

    Some wisdom from Truman Capote seems appropriate, ” A lack of talent is not enough.”

    In the right context, that blazer is the tits.  S/S ‘12 Tommy?


    James left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 10:12 AM:

    I have to agree with AEV - fit is king.

    The look could be cool, ballsy, just the right mix of pattern and punch. Nice mix…


    Dex left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 9:54 AM:

    Great jacket, not sure when or where I would wear it but I am interested to know if it is custom or is available somewhere.


    DBCC left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 9:28 AM:

    Big fan of the shawl collar and the one button jacket.  Not a fan of madras post Labor Day.  Lots of ankle being shown in the background - nice work, Fred.


    Glenn Elliott left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 8:55 AM:

    Love the jacket.


    AEV left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 7:11 AM:

    Interesting, ballsy outfit - but nothing fits, which detracts.


    HLN left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 6:47 AM:

    Nice photo, interesting colors.


    Maude left a comment on 9/13/2011 at 6:39 AM:

    Go Brad! 
    I love the idea of the outfit, maybe it looked better in person.  I would have preferred a lighter color pant.
