Hey, gidday mates! I shot this one on the East River on Tuesday morning right before I had to run to the airport to catch my flight to Los Angeles. If the denim-on-denim combo looks familiar, it’s because I have probably blogged this outfit about seventeen thousand times, and that would be because it’s my go-to whenever I’m stressed and I need something easy and familiar that works for all occasions (within reason): Meetings, check. Travel, check. Weddings, ehhhh hard to say. Denim on denim can also handle some big colour, like these Supergas, which have been getting a lot of play this summer with neutrals like my white jeans and khakis. The moral of the story is: 1. Get a uniform! It helps when you’re feeling the heat; and 2. Don’t be afraid to introduce colour into your wardrobe! It’s more fun that way!!!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Buon giorno from sunny Florence! I’m here in the Tuscan capital with the insanely cool (and coolly insane) designer concept store LuisaViaRoma alongside a bunch of the world’s top bloggers — Song of Style, Damsel in Dior, Front Roe by Louise Roe, He Spoke Style, The Three F, and more. Amazing! Later today I’m going to be shooting with the store, but the last couple of days have been spent running around this beautiful little city, and yesterday I had one of my favorite travel moments of all time when Louise Roe and I were given our own private tour of the Palazzo Vecchio where the Medici family lived, including a glimpse at their Vasari-lined bedrooms, their cabinets of curiosity, and their secret passageways — which they used on the regular to get up to absolutely no good.

“I used to show in New York as I am based there, but the move to Paris for my men’s collection was prompted both from a creative point of view as well as a business decision,” says designer Thom Browne. “It allows me to show the collection earlier to get a head start on production and I also feel that Paris fashion week embraces true conceptual design.”Click to Continue!
Richard Haines. Photo: Winnie Au for GQ My third 10 Essentials went live today, featuring my favourite menswear illustrator, and great friend, Richard Haines. Mine and Richard’s friendship has been fairly well documented on this blog, but in case you’re just tuning in, we met at New York Fashion Week in 2011 while we were both contributing to The New York Times, and became fast friends due to his willingness to give things a go (we may or may not have snuck into the Alexander Wang show together… three times), and my appreciation for his dry, sarcastic, and often acerbicClick to Continue!
Richard Haines and I were sitting at Cafe de Flore in Paris in June, waiting for the Carven show to begin. As we sipped our five euro coffees and watched 80 year old men who Richard recognized as having sat at the exact same spot at the exact same tables for the 40 years he’d been visiting the city, I was struck with an idea: what if Richard published a broadsheet magazine of his best drawings from the show season? Over the next few weeks we discussed the concept in further detail, and the idea began to take shape; aClick to Continue!
