This guy's overall look screams "pretentious tool".

I have no idea if he's guilty or innocent. I do think his clothes look great.

When I read the story in the Times, I just thought he was a good example of the moral vacuity of the Dandy.

Damn. I have a "tablecloth" shirt just like the one in the pic - and I love the combo - but I don't want to give this prick any money.

JPS will not be indicted in the Ron Burkle-Page Six scandal.

NEW YORK (AP) -- A former contributor to the New York Post's Page Six gossip column who was accused of trying to shake down a billionaire in exchange for good press will not be charged in the case. The case involving Jared Paul Stern was being closed, said an individual familiar with the federal investigation, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision was not made public yet. Stern's lawyer confirmed that his client would not be indicted.

California billionaire Ronald Burkle, who has given millions of dollars to political causes and is known for his investments in supermarkets, said Stern demanded $100,000 and a $10,000 monthly stipend to make negative stories about him stop.

Stern had repeatedly denied the charges, saying he was innocent. He Tuesday that he was thankful but that the saga had left his life in tatters.

"It is definitely a relief," Stern said. "But I'm still basically in the same situation vis-a-vis my life being ruined. I never really believed that I'd end up in court. It was a smear campaign. But it was a success. I got fired and vilified and all of that."

"We have said from day one that this was a campaign to spread lies based on false accusations fueled by Burkle's personal vendetta against the New York Post, and that there was never any evidence of wrongdoing on Mr. Stern's part," Stern's lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, said in a statement.

A message left for Frank Quintero, a Burkle spokesman, was not immediately returned.

There's something undeniably contrived and posed about J.P.S:



Compare with someone like this:

This guy fronts so hard it's ridiculous. The fact that he name-checks 21 makes him only faker. What's he going to reference next? The Racquet and Tennis Club? Where'd he go to college? Some liberal arts school in VT.

Oh, he started a "literary salon". I was not aware of that. Now the monocle makes sense

Well, he references the Skull & Bones Club for his fashion label:

The sort of toadyish posturing and pretension that tends to characterize New York's grotesque "elite" microcosm.

Actually, in the photo taken at '21,' his style reminds me more of Gay Talese's.

I completely agree. Lookup "trying too hard" in the dictionary and his picture will pop up (Yes, I have a pop-up dictionary, why not? )

but the monocle (along with his criminal activity) puts Stern over the top. I would have to punch him.

My thought exactly.

Didn't the bank guy in "A Man in Full" wear skull-and-bone braces? I mean, the guy who led these work-out sessions, trying to get the saddlebags out of the clients. Now I have finally found out where he got the braces from.

i'm not sure if he's referencing skull and bones (though the fact that he mentions 21 quite often probably cements the fact). i'm fairly sure the skull and bones motif in clothing precedes this guy's attempts. i remember seeing a navy and red club tie on ebay a while back from brooks brothers. if he starts putting "322" or "13" or "7" on his stuff then he'll truly be posturing.

he's a poseur.
