Western Wear

February 1, 2014

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:

Short suit

June 30, 2013

This definitely looks like a well tailored suit, and certainly weather-appropriate for the recent heat we’ve been having, but are suits with shorts for little boys? Oh well, I guess it’s better than the short sleeve suits Tsutomu Hata tried to make a thing in 1990s Japan.

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.

Khaki suit

December 2, 2011

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

Perfect coordination

November 11, 2011

Every layer has a color that matches another layer.

Another Jack Kennedy outfit…

November 11, 2011

… that’s just as available today as it was in the 60s.

East coast prep

A nice gray jacket

August 9, 2011

I’m not 100 per cent sold on elbow patches as a sartorial genre, but this sportcoat has a very nice contrast collar and military-inspired front patch pockets, and that sells it.

Killer look

August 1, 2011

I’m not 100% sold on the flared chinos, but I won’t argue with someone who has a degree in pogonology from the Professor Badass Graduate School of Sartorialism.

Eurocrat, with a twist

July 18, 2011

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

It’s a little long for a peacoat…

March 21, 2011

… but my fellow Hoosier had the right idea.

Smoking kills

March 14, 2011

But this outfit is a killer.

The only problem with women’s clothing inspired by men’s clothing…

December 15, 2010

.. is that I want men’s clothing that is inspired by it.

Everything in this picture is rad

November 12, 2010

When Wim Wenders visits the European Parliament, he puts on blue glasses, a matching sweater, a shirt with hidden color on the inside collar, and a jacket that looks like the carpet at the old Indianapolis airport.
