Drunken office party selfie last night

selfie_preview

I have only the vaguest recollection of taking this picture, but I do remember being happy about my outfit and how well my hair held up despite yesterday being the humid-est, grossest day ever. That’s right, nasty summer humidity doesn’t stop me from wearing a suit and tie. Suit is from H&M last year, shirt is probably Zara, tie is from Daffy’s. The skull ring I grabbed on Amazon a while back on a whim…Continue Reading →

Is three skull ties enough? (Of course not.)

Here are the three ties with skull patterns that I currently have in my collection. The one on the left is from H&M many, many years ago, and the one on the right is from H&M just recently. The one in the center is my favorite, and I have no idea where it came from; I’m 99% sure my girlfriend bought it for me as a gift, and I’m 99% sure she got it in…Continue Reading →

I have a tie problem…

ties

… and my problem is that I don’t have enough ties. My necktie collection hovers around the 50-60 mark at any given time. The vast majority of these are from all my usual haunts: Daffy’s (R.I.P.!) was my absolute best tie-shopping place for years, and at least a dozen of these are from there. The others are from JackThreads, H&M, Delaveine in Paris, celio* in Paris, and of course several of them were gifts. I…Continue Reading →

You don’t need a bespoke suit to look like a million bucks

lacuna-preview

I’ve never owned a bespoke suit in my life. When I see normal businessman-type guys rocking nice bespoke suits, I can certainly appreciate that they look great, but that look is not part of my world and it’s not something I aspire to. I’m not saying I would turn down a nice $3000 English-made suit, but that look is not a priority for me. The fact that I wear suits and ties almost every day…Continue Reading →

Here they are, all of Hannibal’s glorious suits and other outfits from season 2 of NBC’s Hannibal. It’s 86 pictures total! As with season 1, the lighting is so somber in this series that in many cases it’s hard to be sure if there’s a wardrobe change from scene to scene, so when in doubt I’ve erred on the side of caution and included everything. One dark plaid suit in dark cool lighting might be…Continue Reading →

My love affair with Kaadu shoes

I used to work at an office in SoHo (NYC, not London) and whenever I’d get bored I’d sneak out and go shopping. This is how I stumbled upon Chris Kaadu Shoes, on Sullivan Street, and it was love at first sight of that pair of red-floral-embroidered black loafers in the window (which I ran inside and bought in a panic like they might disappear). I must’ve bought about ten pairs of fabulous shoes at…Continue Reading →

An important turning point for teenage me was when I noticed how rock fans dressed & how rock stars dressed & switched from one to the other — Glamdies (@GlamdiesBlog) May 24, 2014 If I had one wish, I would probably waste it on more color/pattern options for men's pants. — Glamdies (@GlamdiesBlog) May 16, 2014 It stresses me out when the inside part of my tie (which no one can possibly see) doesn't match…Continue Reading →

Me and my lady waiting to see Eddie Izzard last night at the Beacon Theatre

Blazer from Zara, shirt is probably H&M, pants are JackThreads, shoes are Stacy Adams of all freaking places. If you look in the reflection behind me you can see my new neon orange streak, courtesy of Hair Metal salon in Williamsburg and three different colors of Manic Panic. Sunglasses are Armani Exchange. Socks = ??? I have no idea where any of my girlfriend’s clothes come from, but I can tell you she got her…Continue Reading →
