    In LA, either a black suit and boots with some type of shirt - and only if I was feeling very Hollywood - or jeans and tees with a military or western shirt over that.  Usually sneakers.  Any L.A. club with a no jeans or sneakers dress code is either totally ghetto (usually, they'll say no sports jerseys either) or really not worth getting into.  

    Around Boston - jeans, sneakers, either a zip top or a shirt.  Any of the clubs with a dress code (like Pravda) are usually filled with meatheads and bimbos trying to be all New York.  At the places I'd go to in NYC, same deal

    Ryan Phillipe? You guys are kidding right? The *kid* looks like a punk.

    What you said would be true in some movies that he appeared in, but surely not in Igby Goes Down, and I suppose, not in Cruel Intentions? What is it about him that you don't like?

    Just a visceral reaction. He's a child, not a man. If I have to choose matinee idol good looks, I'd choose Brad Pitt. But honestly, I'd rather have a distinctive face than a merely pretty one. Wouldn't you much rather look like Samuel L. Jackson (if you're black) or Russell Crowe or Mel Gibson (if you're white) or Choy Yun Fat or Jet Li (if you're Asian) rather than some anonymous pretty boy?

    not really... Personally I think Benicio Del Toro is the man.

    My favorite going-out outfit is a red t-shirt underneath a cream v-neck shirt underneath a very slim vintage black velvet blazer, with slim striaght dark-wash distressed jeans, and black pointy-toed boots.

    The red shirt is A|X, the v-neck is DKNY, the jacket I don't know, the jeans Express (to justify this, they're the "Italian" line. They cost $120, were super limited, and are my favorite pair of jeans, even over PDC / Diesel), and the boots Damy. I have no idea who Damy is, but they were only $60 or so on YOOX after the final markdown, and they look very nice.

    But it's precisely Ryan Philippe's excessive immaturity and irresponsibility and snobbishness and wealth at such a young age. [​IMG]

    I think it is all about Studio 54 which coincidentally relates to this query. Â Some jeans, a blazer, and a platinum bag lady wig anyone? But then I don't ever wear one outfit so i really cannot answer your question specifically. [​IMG] Andy with Edie

    I wear the same thing to whatever night time venue I'm at, jeans... always jeans, mine are beat up PDC, Sneakers, and usually a tee-shirt, I've been rocking plain, white v-necks lately. Usually I'll wear a leather jacket over the shirt... I haven't been wearing my Cafe Racer jacket lately, they seen to be everywhere, instead I have a beat up, brown leather, Schott bomber jacket.

    I NEVER wear slacks or dress shoes to clubs or bars. I'll sometimes wear a pair of chelsea boots though. Wearing the typical slacks, button down, and shoes is dorky. As LA Guy said, the places that require this dress are ghetto and you won't find a cool crowd there.

    I won't ever go to a place that requires bottle service either. Their always packed with corporate dudes, tourists, and B&T people. It's best to go out on weeknights, you won't find any of the aformentioned people. Nothing's worse than partying with guidos and yuppies on the weekend.

    It's not really the actor, just the way he plays Valmont. I mean, with the Mansion in the heart of Manhattan, the perfect condition Black w/ dark tan interior Jaguar XK140 Roadster, the devilish charm, and of course the script with its wonderful one-liners that really make it a fantastic character.

    Jon.

    Well, Sebastian Valmont. Did you order the DVD or tape version? Jon.

    Funny, that is exactly who came to mind when I read LA Guy's comment. I wouldn't mind looking like Benicio...

    What do I wear? thick soled, Italian shoes (Mantellassi, Santoni etc.) or boots, boot-cut jeans (Levi's premium usually,) one of my bolder dress shirts with the collar open, a cool belt (I've been really into wide leather D-ring belts lately.) In the summer I generally wear a cotton or linen sportcoat or unconstructed shirt-jacket over it all. In the winter I might wear a shearling coat, brown leather coat, or a cashmere sportcoat. I've got a black cotton/cashmere corduroy Cantarelli sportcoat that I wear year-around.

    I've been looking for a slim, black velvet sportcoat and a nice cafe-racer jacket. Both great options for weekend wear.
