    Sometimes he pulls it off well, but I think that for the most part he just fails miserably.

    Camouflage pattern works much better with a dinner jacket, in my opinion.

    Deal-breaker is that it's not supposed to have a ticket pocket.

    Wooster is a brilliant marketer. He knows that a distinctive visual image is a trademark. Look how much he gets blogged. He gets identified worldwide. He knows exactly what he is doing and it's working.

    As far as what he wears, he is the first to admit that he is following fashion trends because that is what his customers want.

    Badass? I don't know. Smart? Absolutely.

    ^ I think a dinner jacket is too formal for camouflage, especially with satin lapels and pockets.

    I really like Nick's camouflage suit - he wears it very well.

    Jesus -- he probably is eccentric and interesting.

    People tend to dress in a way they feel most comfortable, especially those that dress outside of the norm. Lots of people on SF dress in a way dictated by other members here, and by following rules they're being more disingenous than someone like that dude. I have loads of friends with great style, and a few fashion designer friends -- sure they read up about clothing, but they take a lot of risks and try to carve out their own styles.

    I dress quite preppy so am not putting anyone down for following a particular style, but i do think people on the fringe should be applauded.


    +1

    Why do some people on a clothing forum, of all things, have such illiberal attitudes as to how one should dress and what garments are or are not acceptable? Oh wait, it's MC.

    It's refreshing to see someone with a truly individual sense of style and isn't afraid to take risks.

    Wooster badly in need of some Jeeves-esque advice ...

    You have to get up early to be this fucking badass.

    Crack of dawn steeze.

    Hear my fucking call.

    I am a Wooster.

    The sun is rising and I’m already clownin’ fools. Don’t try this shit at home.

    Only the Wooster.

    Wearing my Blaze Orange Michael Bastys.

    I fuck with menswear and Orange is my safety word.

    I am not your Grandpa.

    I am not colorblind.

    I am not peacocking.

    I am a Wooster.

    I don't think he's doing that. I think he's creating a dialogue with his clothes that you missed.

    Conversation with the canon?

    He seems to wear a lot of Michael Bastain. I believe that is the source of the camo jacket and his camo pants.

    He's men's fashion director of the Neiman-Marcus group, of which Bergdorf is a subsidiary.
