Mad Times

The NY Times is making a case for 1950s-1960s dressing (Mad Men)
See the whole editorial here.

While GQ's "GQ Eye" blog is making a case for turn of the century dressing.

What I see is a battle brewing between Williamsburg and Manhattan dressing. I do like the sleek (but often stiff) lines of the 1960s, but I have to say the necessarily tailored pieces of the turn of the century, and the level of detail and quality which they require appeals greatly to me. Uh oh... I think we can probably add the next stage to this.

In any case... young vs. old? Romanticism vs. Revisionism? anybody? anything?
Maybe I'm grasping at straws, but this new direction of fashion is bound to provide much of interest in the coming months.

The Rake's Progress - "Tailored Suits, Like We Mobsters"

Italian suiting is not what we once saw adorn the likes of De Niro, Pacino and Brando.
(I don't think anyone will have a problem with silk scarves any longer...)

(Wow! the Cuff of this jacket has five buttons!)

This Week in Style

GQ Magazine does a good job critiquing what famous men are wearing each week...

This week jumped at me for some reason.

"The Kaiser's latest muse/model appears to be learning a thing or two from the master—though he's still a few pieces of neck-chain flair (and one pair of fingerless gloves) short of going Full Karl."
For whatever reason, I think Lagerfeld is a pretty awesome dude.

Their caption read "Never has a man holding a toy video-game turntable looked quite so badass" - awesome

The Evolution of the Hipster

Uh oh... There are many disconcerting things about this, mostly it is how closely I fit this progression...

Keffiyah? check, white belt? check, ironic t-shirts? check, faux-vintage t-shirt? check, checkered shirt? check, deep-v? check, and iphone, check.

fortunately I do not have the facial hair to grow some of these trends.

Check out the full version here.
