One Photo, What Do You Think: Pharrell @ Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Everyone’s being inspired by old country style these days and that includes BBC Man Pharrell Williams. I appreciate his ode to gentleman gear, buuuut I don’t think he quite pulled it off, like maybe Andre Benjamin would have. It just seems like he paired a random blazer, driving cap, and knee- high riding boots with his favorite jeans and white polo (two of his wardrobe staples). Fantastic individual pieces, but when paired my eyes move all other place… whoever dressed him probably thought the light blue piping on the khaki blazer would match the jeans and that the olive corduroy suede cap would match the sides of his riding boots… but I think a darker denim, and better jacket would have saved this ensemble… with all that said, he still looks quite dashing. And the boot go hard. What do you think?

Pharrell Williams Wears TOM FORD Glasses

Many people ask me this question (almost daily) and I always answer it on an individual basis, but just for the record- Pharrell Williams wears Tom Ford glasses šŸ˜‰
Just for kicks, here’s the Pharrell Williams “I’m a PC video”. I love this whole “I’m a PC thing” (even though I’m personally a Mac), when I first saw the whole commercial months ago I was moved. It’s a great marketing campaign, whoever thought of it definitely got paid.

Oh and here’s some more Tom Ford frames worn by the stylish and famous.

Oh, and here’s the entire PC commercial, the one I was “moved by” :-)

College Cool RULES: Pharrell Williams

At a show in Paris at the Grand Palais: Picasso & The Masters

How many people can truly wear the sames thing over and over again and we love them all the same? Pharrell Williams truly has staple wardrobe items and he wears them well. I thought Andre 3000 was the “staple wardrobe” king with his A’s hat, converse, and suspenders, but Mr.NERD trumps him. After browsing through some of his photos- I noticed that Pharrell seems to have a few permanent staples and he also has seasonal staples. You may ask, what does he do to switch it up? Well, he just changes the color of his staples…

For example this summer/early fall he rocked red BBC hats, but lately he’s been rockin blue BBC hats. This summer/early fall he was rockin black/navy Vans, but lately he’s been rocking his tan Vans. This summer he rocked his white and navy/burgundy trimmed sweater, while lately he’s been rocking his army fatigued get-up.

Pharrell on MTV earlier this past summer.

Pharrell in Atlanta last month w/ Common.

He throws on a pastel colored polo every once in a while and maybe a plaid shirt for these cold months. His wardrobe is so simple, yet he makes all the Best Dressed List. Gentleman, this should tell you that it’s not about quantity it’s about quality and swagger. I feel like Pharrell is unconsciously being a great example for young men with his sense of style. His wardrobe says ” You do not have to own 200 pairs of shoes to be cool, I rock $45$/$60 dollar Vans on a regular and I’m the shyt”. I LOVE IT. Now of course Pharrell has a lifestyle that involves more informal settings, so if you’re a banker or something this obviously only applies to your weekend gear.

I also feel like his sense of style tells all men that it’s important to figure out your sense of style and be confident with it– wear what makes you feel good because Pharrell surely does.
