Western Wear

The 1969 version of True Grit has everything, like New York’s Hottest club: Great outfits, great one-line putdowns, a lazy cat named for a disgraced governor of Missouri, a top-flight Arkansan named Daggett, oh, and obviously, these great outfits:

Prep as all eff

January 30, 2012

Green-tinted tortoise-shell glasses ($333) pink shirt, critter tie, a jacket fit for an old Italian man, and a early ’90s BMW. That’s living the life right there, right down to the braided leather key fob.

This is me in 10 years

Somebody in the SNL wardrobe department has a crystal ball.

Reversible bow tie

December 2, 2011

This little wonder very satisfies my desire for a little hidden color.

Khaki suit

December 2, 2011

It’s more suited (har) for the summer, but what can I say? It looks good.

Perfect coordination

Every layer has a color that matches another layer.

Eurocrat, with a twist

Yes, that’s a knit tie! I don’t think you’d see one of those on the 10th floor of the Berlaymont.

Contrast gray cartigans

September 20, 2010

With a dress shirt, narrow dark tie, and jeans, it’s what I like to call the ‘JT Hill Look.’

Court Shoes

July 21, 2010

… for when you want to be a real baller, but not the basketball kind.

Summer suits in Florence

July 21, 2010

It’s a little bit messy, but very classy. Also, is that a Finnish cockade on the lapel? Whatever it is, I like it.

Tie yes, suspenders not so much.

When I saw this bow tie about a month ago, I just about had a heart attack from how excellent it looks.

Brooks Brothers does J. Crew.

Classic colors, unusual form

July 12, 2010

This Icelandic bow tie is a little strange with the white piping on the outside, making it look sort of like a set of collar bands, but I like it anyway.

Olli is back

July 1, 2010
