Donald Glover is one of the few men on the planet that I might go straight for. I said it. Sexuality is fluid y’all.
Doesn’t he look dashing in this GQ spread?
What I like about this look is the use of colour, the nerdy playfulness and the fact that this could work for both Ms. and Mr. Dandies.
The shirt, vest and (unseen) bow tie are all Ralph Lauren.
The beautiful bright cords are Bottega Veneta from their F/W 2011/2012 line.
The loafers are by Tommy Hilfiger (but don’t feel bad if you want to swap them out for some three-tone suede brogues).
GQ says that the bag is American Eagle Outfitters. I’m just going to pretend that didn’t happen. Let’s also pretend that we have Mr. Glover’s bank account so that we can sport this lovely little bag from Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2012.
The jacket on the bike is Shipley & Halmos’ Wooden Reversible Varsity Jacket and frankly it’s on the JV team.
If you’d really like to complete your look with a varsity jacket I recommend checking out the Varsity Shop at Brooklyn Circus.
I may have lettered in theatre, but I know that you either go big or go home.
I’m going to confess something to you that might change how you feel about me.
- I don’t care if something is So Last Season (or, as it sometimes happens, So Eleventy Seasons Ago). If I like it and I think it appropriately dapper that’s all that matters to me.
- I am prepared to rob your mother for these shoes. Yes, your mother. My mother carries a knife.
These are the ACNE Bleeker Brogue in Red from their Fall/Winter 2011 line. I have been eyeing them for months. Wouldn’t these be divine with the Valentino?
Thankfully your mother is safe because they’ve just gone on a deep sale and I will be able to “afford” them as soon as I pay off my credit card this month.
This cuff from VinyLux is definitely on my Birthday List.
It’s a groovy (pun intended) accessory addition for Ms. and Mr. dandies alike (but does tend to favor a slender to medium wrist).
Fab.com is currently featuring VinyLux’ line so be sure to pick one (or four) up while the getting is good. I’ll even let you get one for me.
