The Met Gala: the Boys

May 6, 2014

“White Tie with Decorations.” ┬áThat is what she said, Anna Wintour that is. When AW says jump…yea you get it. So here are the guys that listened. (White tie is significantly dressier then regular black tie; it means a white vest and white tie underneath a coat with tails. Some would even go so far as to say white gloves as well)

1)The always perfect Tom Ford in Tom Ford, and Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren

2)Kanye West in Lanvin (great modern take on classic white tie)

3)John Legend in Ralph Lauren (have to make a note of girlfriend Chrissy Teigen also in RL…what a dressed pair!)

4)Matt Bomer

5)We’ll let Paul Rudd fly by with this one…(Call your favorite A.K. stylist for advice next time!)

Friday Inspiration

August 23, 2013

When I get ready to get out of bed on Friday morning, I always ask myself what do I want this weekend to be like? What needs done, but also what should I be doing? Pursuing the dream of finding the perfect cafe racer? Writing the next great American piece of fiction? Paddle-boarding the Amazon? Maybe figuring out why he chose Jolie over Aniston? WTF? When these thoughts arise I seem to drift to the life of Ralph Lauren. What would he be doing this weekend? Well, lets take a look:

This Dog is More Fashionable Than You

February 1, 2013

Menswear Dog is a blog about a 3 year-old shiba inu wearing… well, menswear. OK, this is hilarious and the best thing about website is that it’s serious; serious about fashion, that is. This dog is wearing clothing from J.Crew, Zara, vintage Herringbone and even a Ralph Lauren knit tie and Wolverine 1000 Mile boots we have at the store! I’m thinking we need a patient dog like that around the store to dress up! Jim, what do you think? Yes?

Ralph’s Bears are Back

January 9, 2013

If you were hibernating through most of the 90s you might have missed a little obsession of Mr. Lauren’s. Don’t worry though, Mr. RL himself is resurrecting these furry friends to join the “everything old is new” circus. I had a few personal favorites during my childhood: 

Pic 2: Chip the Wasp-y Frat Bear: Ivy League swagger makes this guy dangerous around your girlfriend. 

Pic 3: Caleb the Hipster Bear: He’s “from Williamsburg” via Springfield Ill. writes Dylan-esque poetry, and moonlights as a barista at Stumptown in the Ace.

Enough Nick Wooster Already!

October 31, 2011

I may or may not be hunted down, beaten, and ripped apart by the fashion demi-gods for saying this, but honestly, I’ve had it. I’m sure you have seen pics of this gent all over the blogospere/tumblr land with his signature coif, stache’, and tatts. He is well respected in the fashion community, photographed by the Sartorialist, and lauded as a hero to a tri-fecta of male bloggers (gracing the pages of GQ, Esquire, and Details). Working for such powerhouses as John Bartlett, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and most recently Fashion Director for Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, one would assume that he might have the knowledge to assure his own wardrobe represented a man who was in tune to how certain details should be maintained. That being said, please look at where his jacket sleeves lay. “Hey Nickelson Wooster! SHORTEN YOUR SLEEVES PLEASE!!”
