Ode to the Fedora: A Collective View of the Man and his Fedora

Check out this collection of celebrities wearing fedoras…. some look quite stylish, while are others are lacking….

Johnny Depp

Brad Pitt

Jude Law

Hugh Jackman

Josh Hartnett

Justin Timberlake

Colin Farrell

Pete Doherty

Ian Ziering

Jeremy Piven

Thomas Jane

Kevin Federline

Ashley Parker Angel

Taye Diggs

Matt Lauer

(Photos compliments of DETAILS Magazine pick up the March issue) They forgot a picture of Ne-Yo though, he probably has the largest fedora collection known to man. lol.

Ne-Yo

Overall, I feel like the guys who try, yanno like they’re trying and planning to wear a fedora, yeah well those guys end up looking like douchebags… But the men who moreso wear them out of necessity and without trying end up with the coolest look. It’s all about looking naturally cool when you’re sporting a fedora- it shouldn’t be contrived. When you specifically plan to wear a fedora you’ll most likely end up looking sort of corny…. kinda like Ne-Yo. As much as I love his ridiculous ability to write hit songs for female superstars like Beyonce and for himself- I am just so over his tilted fedoras. Fedoras should be worn straight on the head, the proper way, unless you’re in the mafia, a gangster of sorts, or attending Easter Sunday services at a southern church.

You should notably wear them like:
Jude Law- with character and personality, or like…
Hugh Jackman- in a distinguished handsome way, or like…
Pete Doherty- with easy swag… swag isn’t the right word, persay, but I can’t think of any other word at the moment…

a very cool book: agnes b. Collection Book

more art books for you urban gents…

“Every art-minded person dreams of amassing an art collection that will grow to outlive their life on earth (ooh that’s heavy). Agnes B is one of those people that has fulfilled that dream. Known equally for her business and her art world prowess, Agnes B has put together a one of kind collection, strong in photography and modern art (especially NYC art(. Seriously, as you flip the pages, you’d think this was a museum book, not a personal collection. But this is way too cool for any museum. It might be the coolest thing ever. Features work from Man Ray, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Eggleston, Andy Warhol, Larry Clark, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Nan Goldin, Robert Frank, Ryan McGinley, Futura, and many others. ” 65 pages. Highly recommended. via turntable.com

Spring Time Shoes: The Clae Collection

After alot of careful thought, I’ve decided that Clae’s Spring 2009 Collection contain the perfect spring-time shoes. The colors are fresh, the designs are sleek, and the collection is pleasantly versatile.

Guys often ask me what type of shoes they can wear as an alternative to the sneaker- my answer usually varies depending on the guys’s style, but Clae has produced a perfect collection of “alternative sneakers” for almost any guy. I can easily see these shoes worn sockless with a t-shirt and jean shorts -or- they can be worn with a button up, blazer, and trousers…

designs range from $50-$125

2009 Academy Award Photos: A Few of the OSCARS Best-Dressed

81st Annual Academy Awards held at Kodak Theatre on February 22, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Some of my favorites from the 2009 Oscars.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Such an amazing clear picture
Notice how Brad’s mustache and goat-tee are rugged yet neat.
His hair perfectly styled– he’s so polished.

Daniel Craig and Satsuki Mitchell
Mr. James Bond himself and his screenwriter girlfriend

Halle Berry and boyfriend model Gabriel
A very handsome couple.

Tyler Perry and Taye Diggs

Cast of Slumdog Millionaire

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens

Robert DeNiro and wife Grace Hightower

another pic of Halle Berry and boyfriend Gabriel

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett

Robert Pattinson

John Legend

Zac Efron

Brad Pitt

Dominic Cooper
Mickey Rourke
This is such an improvement from last time
More Brad and Angelina:


They’re seriously the perfect Hollywood couple
And somehow they ALWAYS look flawless on the red carpet.

Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black

Fashion designer Valentino Garavani
Sean Penn

Tyrese and Terrell Owens

BEST DRESSED:

Zac Efron
ALWAYS brings it the hardest on the red carpet.
He’s so consistent, always modern.
He’s wearing a modified version of the classic bow-tie,
very simple and streamlined.

Daniel Craig

If you saw the live red carpet broadcast then you would have to
agree that Daniel Craig was by far the best-dressed. Yes, his tux is simple and looks very similar to the other guys, but it was the way he wore it- with such confidence and swag…

Victor Glemaud…
