some excellent advice for you gents out there.
Sartorial whatevers you can learn from the always stylish JD as seen at NYFW S/S 2012:
-Wear a v-neck sweater under a sportcoat as opposed to a v-neck tee/scoop neck tee/tee anything to avoid looking like you just stepped out of a Las Vegas strip club. (Cinnamon, if you’re reading this, the child support check is in the mail)
-Everyone loves an odd sportcoat, but it’s a ballsy move to pull off. If you’re gonna do it stick with a more understated pattern in understated colors (for example the black and white miniature hounds tooth seen above). Jackets such as these hide stains real well FYI.
-Learn how to hem your own pants or drop a little coinage at the tailor/seamstress. Everyone’s rolling their shit these days and that’s okay, but if you want to stand out go as DIY as you see fit.
-As long as you’re not wearing a suit, sneakers are fine. Yes, even with trousers. Just make sure your kicks are of the classic variety like JD’s Vans slip-ons.
-If you’re wearing a suit because you want to wear a suit, have some fun with it. A faja belt keeps things casual and what you do with your collar is your own prerogative.
-Lead by example.

Well, you look so pretty in it
Honey, can I jump on it sometime?
Yes, I just wanna see
If it’s really that expensive kind
You know it balances on your head
Just like a mattress balances
On a bottle of wine
Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat
i’m looking for tweed, fall’s a-comin’…
French women don’t dress to be sexy. Of course we do dress to seduce — that’s different from trying to ‘catch’ a man by wearing flamboyant clothes. The basic attitude is different. A French woman never feels she’s offering herself. There’s never a sense of surrender, but an attitude of ‘I belong to me’. —
