Cleanliness Is Next To Fordliness

I am a fan of anything Tom Ford does. He keeps things simple, bold, and always sexy. I have been seeing a lot of stylish people wearing these glasses lately and I am in love with them. They are classic sexiness wrapped into a simple black frame, complete with Ford’s signature T displayed on the sides.

Spring Favorite: Bottega Veneta

For Spring, Bottega Veneta wants every man to wear pops of color along with neutrals that have a sun drenched look. Shirts have a washed, worn-in look and pants come to the ankle in basic khaki, bold colors, and even a brocade, tie-dyed inspired fabric. The shoes have a twist with a bright sheen and cool colors. These clothes give a luxurious ease that any man can wear. Take a note from Bottega Veneta and try pairing bold colors together, layer light knits, and pair penny loafers with shorts, all for a runway inspired look.

Style Obsession: Francesco Cominelli

When you are the assistant editor of Vogue Hommes, photographed by The Sartorialist multiple times, and featured on Jak & Jil, you know you are doing something right. Francesco Cominelli’s style is effortless, chic, simple, interesting, and my current style obsession. He mixes fabrics, styles, and accessories to create an envied look and knows exactly what works, especially the fit of a good blazer. Take style cues from Mr. Cominelli, I know I am!!

Multimedia Styling with Valet

A great website to check out (if you haven’t already) is Valet. It offers everything the stylish guy needs: style, culture, living, and grooming. Last spring I was able to interview Valet’s Editor-in-Chief, Cory Ohlendorf , and found out how the website came about.

Ohlendorf wanted to create a website that had the look and feel of a magazine but could add things that go beyond a print product. Things such as links to other blogs or an integration with Twitter or YouTube that would help elevate Valet above other websites. Ohlendorf says Valet offers much more freedom in content and layout than a traditional print product and this is what adds to the Valet experience: edited content with a unique design, daily updates, and integration with other multimedia platforms.

My favorite part about Valet, other than unique designs and great fashion information, is “The Edit”. The Edit is a daily roundup of everything you need to know for that day. It usually links to other blogs, news sites, or trendy articles and provides me with a burst of morning stylishness. Check out Valet and discover all of its stylish offerings!!
