Girls notice. Promise you. Case in point: Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love. Yes he looked amazing, but more than that, I wanted his entire wardrobe for Ro. And he was on board! Attention to detail is something I think some guys have a hard time with. They don’t automatically think things like “should this jacket have a pocket square?” or “should I layer a sweater over this thermal?”. But oh what a difference it makes.
Boys, next time you dress to impress, ask yourself this question: What would Ryan wear?

To bald man :(
For our wedding, the guys are going to wear tuxes. Robert and I both love a classic tux. He wants to look as much like James Bond as possible…and I’m somehow totally ok with that. But, I can’t help perusing the ties and bowties that are out there and wondering if we shouldn’t customize it somehow. Maybe he could wear a solid black bowtie while the groomsmen wore a black bowtie with white polka dots? What do you guys think?
A sweet little piece of trivia about me: my grandma Susi was a fantastic seamstress. She would make a bowtie for my papa to go with every dress she had. Isn’t that lovely?
Click the ties for the source. I found an incredible website: The Tie Bar and they have a wealth of any sort of tie one might need. They are super affordable.
The Essentials from Mr. Porter got me thinking about what every guy has to have to survive Summer and look fly doing it. Here are my recommendations. Bonus – the best men’s style sites: Valet Mag, Kempt, Gilt Manual, A Continuous Lean, Mr. Porter Journal, oooo
A Summer Blazer
A Straw Hat
A White Tee
Now, if Summer would just get here.

I have long slobbered over the gorgeous/affordable offerings from mega-online-British-retailer ASOS. However, I had forgotten they were creating a site for US customers until today. AND they are offering free shipping and free returns. I also must note for any interested parties, ASOS has just as much to offer for men’s fashion – that might require a separate post.
Umm for Christmas, may I have everything?
Warning: Slobber likely ahead.
Are you excited yet? There is seriously so much available on this site and a wide range of price points. One could buy an outfit (dress, tights, headband and shoes) for under $100 or spend a fortune on one special dress.
