24, 7-fold: Fox’s 24 Wears Robert Talbott 7-fold Ties

So, this morning I decided to head over to Fox.com and catch up on 24. I had seen 24 Redemption, but none of the episodes that followed. So I’m watching the show… its soooooooooooo freakin’ good by the way, I mean Jack Bauer is the truth he really is… Anyway, so I’m watching the show and by episode 2 the tie of FBI Agent Larry Moss caught my eye. At first I thought to myself “That’s an impeccable tie” then I’m like, “Wait… he’s wearing a 7-fold tie”. As I continue to watch and I began to notice that every tie that is worn- by the agents, prime minster, doctors, lawyers, good guys, bad guys, etc, is a Robert Talbott ties. Some of the guys are wearing Talbott 7-fold ties that are $225.00 each, while others are wearing Robert Talbott “Best of Class” ties that are about $135.00

Robert Talbott 7-fold ties are hand cut, handsewn, luxurious silk ties. Each tie is a limited edition tie and is hand signed. For example, they may make only 40 of a certain pattern and color tie, so each one is numbered 1/40, 2/40.. 15/40 and so on… basically when you have a Robert Talbott 7-fold tie you don’t have to worry about seeing someone else with it EVER, some may even say that they’re sort of like rare pieces of art. I became an expert on these ties and other fine men’s products while at Nordstrom. I had one client who collected Talbott 7-fold ties, he would purchase 6 or so at a time and regularly called me to see if we had gotten any new designs in that I thought would fit his style.



The name ‘seven fold’ comes from the way a single piece of fabric is exactingly folded in on itself seven times creating a tie that drapes fluidly, hangs straight and is very durable. The tie is a definite standout.

The Other King: Lebron James GQ Magazine

LeBron is always one of the first men that come to mind when I’m asked to name the “top ten best dressed athletes”… (Although, like one Urban Gent commented earlier this month, I think Chris Paul is headed for the number one spot… ). He humbly graces the cover of the newest GQ Magazine, and I must say good sir- you look dashing.

I just want to take out the time to say Happy B-day to the late Martin Luther King Jr. Thanks for making this world a better place.





This is one of my favorite MLK quotes:

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. “

Dirty Sneakers: Golden Goose

Known for their authentic looking distressed boots, Golden Goose has quite the collection of worn-in sneakers. No need to scuff them up, kick around in the dirt, and wear them out to give em’ that personalized look… they already come that way.

I usually don’t do “worst-dressed”,
but the tackiness of these two guys
is sort of uncalled for…

I like it when guys go a little bit out the box for black tie events, but
this is just wrong.

Tom Cruise.
From the perfectly cut hair to the spread collar.
Tom looks extremely handsome in his Armani tuxedo.

I like it when men wear suits that subtly match their personality.
I feel like this 3 piece suit fits his mysterious demeanor.
I may not recommend this for everyone, but it looks good on him.
