A guy at the shoot just asked me what to wear to a party tonight to impress a girl (how sweet is that!). He really wanted to wear a “tattered argyle sweater” so I told him to pair it with a wine colored button-down and trousers (in other words, pants that aren’t jeans made of some sort of cotton blend with NO PLEATS!)
I realize I have not addressed the completely clueless (men) walking around in sports jersies, ripped jeans, or oversized clothes. I promise it’s coming.
In the meantime, if you need some good stuff that’s affordable, you can always rely on John Varvatos or Club Monaco.
If you’re brand shopping: Rag and Bone (brand usually sold at Barney’s or your local stylish boutique), Velvet (new brand for men this year in department stores), Marc Jacobs, Polo (or Ralph Lauren), H&M.
