Heschung’s Gentlemanly Spring Boots

Posted on

  It was cold and windy here in Manhattan today, and so of course my first thought was boot-related: “what can a guy wear on his feet on a chilly pre-Spring day when the temperature barely makes it over 50 degrees?” He can’t bring out the old rugged Red Wing-types (although they are just about…

I found this handsome WWII navy pea coat at an antique store in the sleepy town of Winsted, CT, this weekend. Priced at $60, it was hard to walk away from the smart, sturdy-looking thing. It’s a size 36 (equivalent to a small) and in excellent shape. Check out the hand-stitched arm patch, stenciled-in name…

Ebay Find: Wickedly Perfect Brunello Cucinelli Vest

Posted on

Some of you may remember my very exuberant Valentine’s Day ode to a certain gray Brunello Cucinelli outerwear vest. At $1245, however, this piece was not for penny pinchers or those who have been madoffed. So you can imagine the little ache in my stomach when I came across this same epically perfect item on…

Get Your Spring on With Two Shirt and Jacket Combos

Posted on

I was pulling clothes for a store fashion show this past week, and I put together two sharp looks that are definitely blog-worthy (despite the shamefully bad iPhone photos). The first is a killer royal blue nylon Boss Orange jacket ($275) with a checked shirt from DKNY ($69). The colors in this outfit are lively…

Jude Law’s Leather Lapel Blazer as Seen on Saturday Night Live

Posted on

Now and then while watching TV, I find myself rewinding and pausing (and rewinding and pausing) to get a good look at something a guy is wearing. It then becomes less about the show that’s on than the look I’ve zeroed in on. The grey shawl collar leather-lapel blazer Jude Law wore on Saturday Night…

My Hands-Down Favorite Hair Product for Men

Posted on

My always sharply-dressed and well-coiffed friend was visiting town last weekend, and both his Mint Tingle Facial Masque and his hair product were commandeered by airline security. So he asked me for a recommendation as to what he should buy to tide his hair over while here. After busting on him for being such a…
