Look of the (Golden) Day

Rocking my new Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece tie. Picked up for an insane $13 on clearance at work. Seems people avoid 4″ ties like the plague these days, not this dapper fellow! For those that don’t know, the Golden Fleece line is the top of the top at Brooks Brothers. This tie is handmade in the USA from 7 fold silk, meaning there is no lining, just beautiful thick silk folded over itself to create this beauty. Makes a beautiful knot too. Retail value is about $150! A definite steal.

Spring is Here, F-You Winter!

Good day Dapperites!

So Spring is officially here (whether the temperature agrees or not!) so I had to bust out my springwear today. Bright and bold, kinda like me 😉

Striped Cotton blazer, purple gingham shirt, royal blue chinos, aqua tie with anchors and royal blue tie bar

New Style Icon: Lapo Elkann

Lapo Elkann, Gianni Agnelli’s grandson, accomplished businessman/entrepreneur and a hell of a snazzy dresser. I’m talking extremely-wide lapels, bright colors, funky accessories and done with confidence which is always key!

Listen to some good life advice from him here:

Notice the use of bold colors, how he uses eyewear as a sartorial statement and carries himself with confidence, which pulls it all together. What I’m trying to tell you my friends, is that you gotta live on the edge and take chances when you dress, be bold, make a statement sometimes, or if you have his or my confidence level, dress like this always! Because gentlemen, the best thing you can wear besides a suit is your confidence 😉

Buona Sera, Goodnight,

-The Don 😉
