I have, I was curious as the initial article in Men's Vogue kind of left me scratching my head. For instance:
I love the idea of a man getting out of the shower, throwing on an expensive suit, and leaving the house without ever looking in the mirror.
Equally exciting: someone wearing beautifully made Italian tassel loafers that have been worn and scuffed to the point that they look like they could never belong to anyone else.
Cool guys I know tend to have role models. One friend is obsessed with collecting the foldable Persol sunglasses that Steve McQueen made famous
Starting this month, I'll be looking all around me for guys who are doing their own thing--not what some magazine or designer trend tells them to do--and doing it so well and for so long that they barely think about it anymore. And I don't mean show dogs, attention hogs, or clothes-horses.
I know exactly the sort of style she is looking for, but she seems a little confused as to how these men arrive at it. Mostly what is catching her eye is confidence, along with a dose of inborn style. But still, these guys have to pay some attention to what they buy, they have to care about how they appear or they would not look the way they do.
And I'm not sure of the point - she is writing in a men's fashion magazine. She's interested in guys who don't really care about things as trivial as clothing, or fashion trends, but her audience is, guys who read men's fashion magazines??
Interesting nonetheless, I'll have to keep an eye on her blog. And some random notes on recent entries: Sam Buffa seems to be a member of an ISDE (International Six Days Enduro) club team, not the "US national motocross team" which would be the des nations team. (Competing in the ISDE is impressive though.) And congrats to Mike C for already making her blog!!
