Gary Oldman is probably my favorite actor of all time and I don’t think I could have ever imagined I’d prefer someone else’s interpretation of a character over his, but Michael Pitt as Mason Verger is killing it. The clothes definitely help. When I think cool, two things that do not come to mind are fur and white/off-white, but somehow it’s really working here. And a baby pig as an accessory is an ingenious touch…Continue Reading →
I have a love/hate relationship with JackThreads. I’ve probably bought at least three dozen items from them in the last couple years, from three-piece suits and ties to t-shirts and sunglasses. Some of it’s great, and some of it’s garbage. JackThreads’ prices are super cheap for the most part, and the quality of their items is very hit and miss. I’ve gotten a few suits from them in the $100-$150 range, which is incredibly cheap,…Continue Reading →
My photographer friend Kevin O’Mara was staying with me in Brooklyn and we got up early on a Saturday morning and I threw on a t-shirt and didn’t do my hair and we went out for coffee. Somehow he managed to sneak this pic and make me look cool anyway; there was a nice breeze doing nice things with my product-less hair. I usually don’t let myself get seen in public wearing a t-shirt, let…Continue Reading →
I actually really like everything he’s wearing, but I probably wouldn’t wear most of those things at the same time. I would love to have a pink suit like that! And the alligator(?) shoes are nice but I’d rather have them in black.
My girlfriend worked for Diesel for a few years in Paris and I got to attend their “XXX” party in 2008; I decided to glam it up good and proper. How I miss those shoes!!! It’s funny, I actually don’t own a single thing from Diesel; you know how I feel about jeans. Oh wait, I lied, I do have a pair of Diesel sunglasses that were a gift and I really like them and…Continue Reading →
Huge pet peeve of mine that has come up a lot recently: It bugs me when I hear someone praising a guy for being classy and wearing “a Mad-Men-style suit” because what they actually mean without realizing it is that he’s wearing “an adult-male-suit in the style that was prevalent during the one hundred or so years before American men dressed like children.”
I always say, blue jeans are my least favorite clothing made from 19th-century camping materials. (My favorite is an iron pot for a hat.) Jeans are default human covering. They manage to both look terrible and be invisible at the same time. They’re so invisible that no matter how blue they are they don’t count as blue clothes. A choice to wear blue jeans is a choice to not make any choice at all. And…Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
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.
