A Tom Ford Tribute

October 7, 2014

Next to the James Bond franchise, menswear designer Tom Ford has been the most influential promoter of classic formal wear in the new millennium. Ford began his career in 1986 and just four years later joined the faltering luxury goods company Gucci which was then on the verge of bankruptcy.  His early success in the fashion house’s womenswear line led to […]

2014 BAFTA Red Carpet

February 18, 2014

I always look forward to the BAFTAs for the uniquely sophisticated elegance the British bring to black-tie fashions.  Sure enough, despite the fact that Americans seemingly outnumbered locals on the red carpet this past Sunday, it was three Englishmen that made my best dressed list.   The shortlisting process was actually an easy one this […]

Daniel Craig at Skyfall Premiere

A number of comments have been made in recent postings about the tuxedo worn by Daniel Craig to the British premiere of Skyfall so I thought I should post a picture for everyone to see what the chatter is about. Mr. Craig is wearing a midnight (navy?) blue evening jacket in place of the usual […]

2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards Red Carpet

September 8, 2012

The GQ Men of the Year Awards were held September 4 at the Royal Opera House in London with an impressive array of black-tie finery. The relative conservatism of recent red-carpet fashion was very much present along with the continuing dominance of the turndown collar.  Sadly absent across the sartorial spectrum was the exposed shirt […]
