I was just looking at the Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2004 shows, and it seems that Tom Ford and Stephano and Domenico have been ripping off my style, that is to say, typical L.A. casuals, for the coming year. If you want to see a pretty typical example of what I'd rock at a club, check out the first 10 outfits in the Gucci slideshow at www.gqmagazine.com
. As a matter of fact, I have a couple of vintage suede western style shirt-jackets (you can buy them at any number of used western-wear and vintage shops in L.A.) that are dead ringers for the jackets shown by Tom Ford. In the day, my style is more like that of Dolce & Gabbana's show, i.e. the jeans are somewhat looser and lighter colored and probably more distressed, and I generally skip the jacket, unbutton the shirt, and wear sunglasses or tinted glasses when going outdoors. And I wear sneakers nearly exclusively in the daytime. I actually try to get away with sneakers 24/7, but even in L.A., some clubs won't allow them.
