clothes

I wrote this article a long time ago about what to wear (and what not to wear) in Paris

From my article, What to wear (and what NOT to wear) during your stay in Paris, originally posted on Cool Stuff in Paris. Okay, Americans, I’m gonna give it to you straight: the clothes you are wearing in Paris make you really stand out as a tourist, and you look sloppy and underdressed and disrespectful almost everywhere you go. You stand out like a sore thumb; the Parisians can spot an American a kilometer away….Continue Reading →

All of NBC’s Hannibal’s suits from season 1

Well, it took one long evening and several glasses of red wine, but I did it: I created screencaps of all of Hannibal’s suits and other outfits from the NBC series Hannibal, season 1. I could stare at those assorted checks and pinstripes and paisleys forever. I would straight-up kill for most of these suits (and those ties!), but the weird zipped-up-sweater things he’s rocking in episode 3 (in blue and red) I can definitely…Continue Reading →

Pinterest album, “les fringues”

I forgot I started a Pinterest account a year or so back and started dumping cool clothes in it! Here you go: Les Fringues, which is a cool French slang word for clothes, kind of like “threads.” I’m happy to have rediscovered this gallery of fine-ass people sporting fine-ass duds.

The time I was in Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers (April 2011)

Hooboy, this is an interesting one; I’m simultaneously very proud and a little bit embarrassed to have been selected one of Time Out New York’s Most Stylish New Yorkers back in 2011. The photoshoot happened some months before the issue came out, and I’d just recently moved to NYC from Paris and was still figuring out shopping/dressing myself here. By the time the magazine hit the stands I didn’t love most of the things I’d…Continue Reading →

What not to wear: swamp edition

Haha, this one is quite a story. November 2008, I was living in France and had plans to visit my homeland of New Jersey, and I’d arranged to finally meet my dear friend Allen Crawford (aka Lord Whimsy) in real life for the very first time. Allen’s idea of a good time: trekking around in the New Jersey Pine Barrens (a huge pine forest full of bogs and swamps) and showing me lots of rare…Continue Reading →

New Orleans photoshoot with Kevin O’Mara

Photoshoot with the charming and talented Kevin O’Mara in New Orleans late last year. The clothes here are nothing special; just my most casual traveling clothes; cotton pants and a plain black shirt from H&M, blazer from Uniqlo, and my usual plain black Armani Exchange sunglasses. I’m wearing my most comfortable and conservative shoes here, aka my traveling shoes; simple and lovely little Italian numbers I snagged at Daffy’s in Philly approximately one million years…Continue Reading →

Hannibal happens to be one of my favorite shows, but I would watch it for the suits alone

…Except that thing he did one time with like the red zipped-up fleece under his jacket and over his shirt and tie. I get that it’s cold out all the time on Hannibal, but you got other options, man. I’m not mad, Hannibal, I’m just disappointed. Anyway: Esquire — How the New Hannibal Lecter Became the Best-Dressed Man On TV This is one sharp-dressed psychiatrist-cum-serial-psychopath. Every scene, Lecter seems to be in a new ensemble;…Continue Reading →

Is three leopard-print ties enough?

(Of course not!) So, I guess I have three leopard-print ties now. The first two I got from JackThreads; a normal yellow/brown one and a black and gray one, and this new one is from H&M. It was on sale for only five bucks! It’s also black and gray. But it’s different from my other black and gray one, damn it! They’re both necessary. Jacket is from Daffy’s, shirt is H&M, and sunglasses are Armani…Continue Reading →
