wow. Love that hes wearing a tie clip!

♥ ♥


Blogger Emma said ... (6:43 AM) : 

he looks gorgeous!


Blogger Izzen said ... (6:51 AM) : 

Cool tie!


Anonymous Anne said ... (6:56 AM) : 

I really like how the shades of gray in his clothing correspond with the colour of his hair.


Anonymous greybreaks said ... (6:59 AM) : 

usually not a fan of this collar, but the gentleman wears it well.

everything works well here, the glasses, tie clip, hint of a pocket square.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:59 AM) : 

It's the "small" touch that brings a classic look that "Peter Panish" collar!


Anonymous Christian said ... (6:59 AM) : 

I am dressed like him today


Blogger Crimsonite said ... (7:05 AM) : 

Brilliant. I always think you need a certain amount of wealth, confidence and arrogance to pull off a look like this.


Blogger Oh Dear Charlotte said ... (7:09 AM) : 

he looks like money.


Blogger Jacq said ... (7:16 AM) : 

I like the subtle curl at the ends of his moustache. If you're going to work this look, you may as well do it properly!


Blogger WE SPY WITH MY LITTLE i said ... (7:20 AM) : 

His collar is o so special!



Blogger AnAzevedo said ... (7:25 AM) : 

So elegant! Love the collar but I think it doesn't work for everybody... need attitude to wear this!


Blogger Chiara Biasi said ... (7:39 AM) : 

Lovely outfit!
so cool...

Kisses from Italy!


Anonymous VogueReport said ... (7:45 AM) : 

Perfect suit, perfect glases


Anonymous Charlotte K said ... (7:49 AM) : 

I think it makes him look like a schoolboy, especially in combo with the tie clasp. Don't like it, although the colors, grooming, etc. are expert.


Anonymous Mo said ... (8:38 AM) : 

Thanks for this, love the collar!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 AM) : 

Can someone please tell me the type of those glasses?!


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (8:45 AM) : 

Good as far as it goes. His tie and jacket lapels are WAY too narrow, as if he's trying to replicate something he saw in a recent tv drama set in the 1960s.


Blogger M said ... (8:47 AM) : 

I love tie clips!!!

eehee , loove the moustache :D

Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Very interesting!!! I personally would have thought the width of the shirt collar would have been too much against the slim lapels, but I like the effect. Of course, this only works if the fit is right and the shirt is perfectly ironed. Great picture and idea!!! Now if we could get a close-up of that tote... Jorge from WPB


Blogger Bell said ... (9:13 AM) : 

La camisa me encanta, tiene un cuello muy bonito. Ambos dos tienen un aire moderno a la vez que clásicos.


Blogger InStudio Blog said ... (9:13 AM) : 

Nevermind the collar - check out that perfect beard and stache.


Blogger Foodie said ... (9:37 AM) : 

How much do we LOVE Nick Wooster!!!!
Such a hot cutie!!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Definitely not a little boy. This is how men should dress.


Anonymous SweetPea said ... (9:45 AM) : 

Smart enougn but this illustrates two things that really annoy me. 1) overgrooming - suggests a man too obsessed with himself.
2) dark glasses - the eyes are so important in communication. When talking to someone wearing them you're only getting half the message! I find it quite rude.
I'll calm down now ;)


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:47 AM) : 

LOVE Nick's new look! The hair, beard and moustache really complement his clothing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:53 AM) : 

The collar with the narrow lapel, the twist on the corners of his mustache. What a great way to show personal style while wearing a "grey suit".

Would love to see more of this guy, casually dressed in particular.


Blogger Beth Lee said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Agree with 'Dear Charlotte'...He looks like money!!!!!


Blogger AVM said ... (10:14 AM) : 

I have to come back - again - to mad men and the 60ies. And the Beatles, as far as I know, they are the last ones who were pround to wear a club collar, 40 yrs. ago! Do we need in our times of crisis fashion representing the swinging sixties and the revolution? (e.g. Obama alias Kennedy).
A funny detail: the curve of the collar repeats itself in the curve of his mustache.
Let me guess, the gentleman works in fashion or in adverstising?


Blogger Gerund O'Malley said ... (10:48 AM) : 

The collar looks like it belongs on a child's smock - don't think any adult can wear it convincingly. The jacket looks one size too small. But I love the white/gray combos.


Anonymous DBW said ... (10:55 AM) : 

That tie and sunglasses combo are spot on. And the gray facial hair makes me want old age to come a bit more quickly.


Anonymous gih said ... (10:59 AM) : 

That's a nice shades. Perfect look, cool man.


Blogger The Sluice Box said ... (11:10 AM) : 

The club collar can look a bit old-timey; however, this guy blends modern and vintage styles for a fresh look.


Blogger Prutha Raithatha said ... (11:13 AM) : 



Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (11:35 AM) : 

I love his hair and tie! Great shot. xo


Blogger MOD PAUL said ... (11:36 AM) : 

Steller.. Need you say more? I think not.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:06 PM) : 

For me, the collar, the shades, and the hair all work. Very handsome man. But everything else seems so "high": the tie clip, the jacket button, the bottom hem of the jacket. It looks to me like he's wearing his little brother's suit. It's too bad we can't see his feet. I'm sure his cuffs end two inches above his shoes and, from the other pictures I've seen, I assume he has no socks on!


Anonymous Kooky said ... (12:06 PM) : 

I agree with SweetPea. Too groomed, give me a (slightly) shabby man anytime!


Blogger Thomas said ... (12:12 PM) : 

This man has a perfect blend of old world elegance and modern sophistication. The club collar (which I think perfectly compliments his curled mustache) along with other details such as the glasses, tie bar, and pocket square allude to this elegance. The perfectly tailored jacket, with its narrow lapels and the narrow tie give the look a modern edge that is still timeless. I am a huge fan of this look. I hope I can age so gracefully.


Blogger dehl said ... (12:20 PM) : 

i hope my father like that heheh.. :)


Blogger Style Scanner said ... (12:45 PM) : 

Adore the Eton collars...


Blogger MOD PAUL said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Oi, Anonymous not sure who makes his shades, but persol makes a bunch of styles very much like his. Good Luck..


Blogger Raul Villalobos said ... (1:00 PM) : 

Absolutely fantastic. Dig on the shades. The other mans glasses are fabulous as well. This is why I love the page.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:10 PM) : 

I just came from class and we learn how to sew collars. My classmates were talking at how this one it's generally used in children clothes.
I'll show them how this guy rocks the peter pan collar.

Great Pic!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:14 PM) : 

What a gorgeous man!


Blogger CW said ... (1:44 PM) : 

It's not the coat. It's not the collar. It's not the tie. It's not the tieclip. I want the name of the barber who tends his beard!


Blogger EML said ... (2:02 PM) : 

fantastic colour combination.
nice tie. and the bag.
and, of course, the collar


Anonymous Michael Allen's Clothier said ... (2:07 PM) : 

The collar is not easy to pull off but he does it well. And with the addition of the tie clip! Taking risks within the classic! Brilliant!


Blogger Elizabeth said ... (2:09 PM) : 

Ooh la la.


Anonymous CK Dexter Haven said ... (2:19 PM) : 

Pretty fantastic.
Love the collar. Great tie, clip, pocket square, grooming....

Nick Wooster.... amazing eye for all things design, dashing, and most importantly a very good human being.


Blogger See Your Style said ... (2:57 PM) : 

My man is bringing back the round collar. It suits the line movement in his face.


Blogger Iyengar's Impetus said ... (3:16 PM) : 

He looks like he is in great shape. He can button at the waist and look so smashing. The beard is trimmed well too. Great shirt, suit, shades, and everything...

This man purse trend has got to stop...NOW. Where does it stop?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:59 PM) : 

He's an interesting looking fellow, but the collar reminds me of a Peter Pan collar too much and for some reason seeing it paired with his curled up moustache makes me dislike the collar more....weird, I know. In any case, with the above mentioned exceptions, very stylish man and a really nice photo!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:27 PM) : 

I disapprove of club collars. It's an affectation without purpose or direction, unusual for the sake of being unusual.

Also, his tie bar is odd. It shouldn't be heavy enough to crease your tie like that.


Anonymous facebdzoom said ... (5:41 PM) : 

Nice style, specially looking cool with sun glass.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:17 PM) : 

I need a tie exactly like this one! He´s really well dressed. Very young


Anonymous LikeIke said ... (6:31 PM) : 

The curvature of the club collar is such a darling detail, and the juxtaposition of the rounded element with the crisp lines of the suit produces a singularly lovely effect. It's the sunglasses that really get me though - those are some seriously spiffy shades!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:54 PM) : 

I absolutely have to know where his bag is from!! But since there is so little of it in the pic, I doubt anyone will be able to identify it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

Wow, I don't remember when so many people were so hypercritical of the details that make it all work. I have a suit with that very cut of jacket, believe me it's meant to fit like that. Bumfreezers are so cool, if you have the physique to pull it off that is. I also rock the Eton collar sometimes (with a collar bar, no less, sometimes tieless sometimes not). Sure it's a bit retro, but I didn't realise how divisive it was. The dude has the best grooming ever. Supercool sunglass action just sets it off for me. I just wish I could see the ankles/feet, the trouser bottoms could be make or break for this get up. Mr Tweed says cool as anything.


Anonymous christopher said ... (7:51 PM) : 

this dude is a PLATINUM fox. wow.


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:02 PM) : 

Really classic masculin chic - I like it! Especially the tie clip - those are so hard to find these days. At least in Berlin...

"I disapprove of club collars. It's an affectation without purpose or direction, unusual for the sake of being unusual."

Sure. And, 'pointy' represents logic, purpose and direction. The 'club' isn't affected. It's not even "unusual." It's just not common TODAY.

Besides that... this is a 'fashion' blog. All fashion is "affectation" at some level. Why visit if it's not to see something just a bit differently executed? "God is in the details" — LMvdR

Blogger Blog Moderator said ... (1:29 AM) : 

I love Club collars! I hope they are coming back soon


Anonymous DaBA said ... (1:49 AM) : 

The club collar is ok, but two things are really wrong here:

1. The suit just doesn't fit. The fabric is pinching around the button and the jacket doesn't close. Jacket looks a bit short and pants look too tight.

2. The crisp white shirt and light silver tie evoke springtime, but the heavy flannel suit is a winter look. They don't go together.

Looks like an older man trying too hard to achieve young/hip/trendy. Who wants to bet he purchased a convertible around the same time as that shirt?

Thumbs down, way down. You know I'm right, so don't try to fight it.


Blogger Heather said ... (2:47 AM) : 

It's the 'stache that makes the style for me.


Blogger the nyanzi report said ... (4:18 AM) :

It should thank him.

The grey jacket,the shirt,the barb.Perfect & clean.


Anonymous The Funky President said ... (12:26 PM) : 

I would emulate this look. There are just enough details to separate him from a staid Wall Streeter or Trad: slim collar, lapels, and tie. A modern take on the man in the grey flannel suit.

I disagree that the suit is too tight; It is just right for the '10s.


Blogger bdub u said ... (12:53 PM) : 

Yeah, with some minor adjustments (sorry club collar and shiny tie) that is probably the living end of style for my personal needs.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:10 PM) : 

Love everything but the collar. Suits fits perfectly and I wish I could see more of his bag. Good look!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Another one of those pictures where I wish I was that guy, or at least dressed like him. Every day.

"His tie and jacket lapels are WAY too narrow, as if he's trying to replicate something he saw in a recent tv drama set in the 1960s."

You say that as if it's a bad thing. There are good reasons the style of early-to-mid 60s is attractive to lots of people today. It can be aesthetically pleasing on its own terms but is attractive for other things, like seeming that it was last time people embraced adulthood and weren't haunted by their adolescence.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:48 PM) : 

that really is the most beautiful man in the!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:52 PM) : 

That tie clip up too high and too wide for the tie drives me insane. Men used to wear the tie clip two-thirds of the way down to keep their tie in place. J.Crew stylists put it too high so it can be seen while wearing a jacket. This is not the point and it looks ridiculous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

Crisp look and love the fit of the suit, the proportion of the whole look and the accessories.

I think he is soooooooooo

perfect. what suit is that???


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:38 AM) : 

As the dude on the left side of the image I can tell you:

1. He always looks great, dressed up or dressed down.
2. He's super nice and looks even better in person
3. He was indeed wearing socks and the shoes were ... Weston, maybe ... something solid.
4. To the person who complained about men carrying bags: How is one supposed to lug work stuff around? Tied up with string?


Blogger IanKR said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Love club collars *because* they look so much like Peter Pan collars (which I also adore), although of course they're not the same; the PPC is flat on the shoulders and the club is up-standing like a regular shirt collar. I just love its roundedness - I have LOTs of club collar shirts, and I don't care whether they're in "fashion" or not. Fashion schmashion. For me it's all about style and what I like to wear.
