The Glory of a Well Dressed Man

Mine eyes have seen the glory of a well-dressed man. This spin on the battle hymn of the republic keeps playing in my head. It’s so true. I think a lot of women might protest that they “don’t want a prissy guy”, or they are turned off by the idea of a beau that spends more than them on pants or accessories, they may even be fearful that a man’s pride in the way he looks could signify something effeminate.

Ladies, I dare to disagree. Think Justin Timberlake or Jude Law, think Robert Pattinson and Joshua Jackson, even call Dwayne Wade to mind. My bf calls Mr. Wade the best dressed man in sports. While there is a fine line between Chuck Bass’ ascots and a well-tailored three-piece suit…a guy who knows what fits, knows where to shop and (heaven-forbid) knows when he looks good is truly valuable. See these best dressed men galleries from Vogue, Esquire, GQ UK , GQ Men of Style and GQ’s most stylish.

I’m not just talking about formal-wear. I’m addressing the whole wardrobe. I always tell my boyfriend we need to “look like we’re going to the same place” and that doesn’t mean we need to match. This whole tirade actually started because I found some AMAZING online shops for men. I’ll go ahead and share those now…

Fine & Dandy has accessories and shoes of all kinds at phenomenal prices. (under $50 for all bowties and ties)

Bonobos has clothing and shoes,  all available to be tailored and very affordable.

    can I tell you how GLAD i am did a post like this??? in my epic battle with john over what to wear and have his groomsmen wear for the wedding, i have not been able to find suitable (no pun intended) websites to show him chic and oh-so-cool accessories. i know what you’re thinking and yes, two weeks before our wedding and we still can’t concretely decide on the F the men will wear…it’d be funny if i weren’t having a panic attack.
