some tips on dressing for yourself (margiela, panerai, hermes. . . it's not cheap, kids) -

i'm probably as sick as you are with all the "self-help" guru crap out there for men.
-
seriously, who gives a fuck about how to tie a windsor knot
(i can google that, thank you.)
or whether denim is officially "over"
(yes.  but not dead.)
or why men CAN use a face cream and still be men
(someone shoot me.  or ryan seacrest.)
-
how about we just have some fun with this,
and not be afraid.
-
for instance,
i dress for myself
(obvious, landis)
and here's what i'm licking up these days:
-
-
this martin margiela cardigan.  the ONLY sweater i need this fall.
i have a navy one from last year, it's flawless, 
part blazer, all knit,
compliment magnet,
thoughtless fashion.
the pants rock too.
-
-
someday if i make crazy cash
(that i don't sink into investments, property, or stupidly expensive sweaters)
i will buy this limited edition panerai.
the "california" dial speaks to me.
it says
"your life is less without me".
i never said fashion was kind.
-
-
anything hermes.
they are having a moment again in menswear.
watch for the resurgence.
-
-
alright, this scarf, losange, in particular.
i wouldn't call it a steal.
but it would complete me.
-
-
coveting the attitude of this guy in richard haines' sketch.
though richard is a friend,
he has yet to send me this attitude.
pity.
-
-
this delicious lanvin suit.
i have no place to wear such a colored suit.
but for this suit,
i will create an event.
-
see?
-
wasn't that more fun than reading about why you should wear stripes this fall?
-
you are welcome.

I'd like to attend the event where you wear the Lanvin suit. Beautiful.

i am flattered to be in such company. i saw that guy on the train when i first moved to bushwick and i know i was in the right hood. what i loved-well, there are many things to love about him-but he was just starting to go gray-it was just a touch-in the thick, unruly beautiful hair.
he wore a black sweatshirt, black cut offs, black canvas shoes, and looked like a million bucks.
man do you have an eye. xxx

like my friend rene, that dial is making me insane with lust-it's gorgeous.

I'm still stuck on an ancienne (and thus expensive- o) montre-bracelet de Gérald Genta very simple with a tan (Coach-like) band oversized for my delicate (ahem) feminine wrist. Yep I can palm a basketball so I like the oversized.

Or, Landis, is Gérald Genta passé?

And that cardigan, divoon, but I'm sure I could knit that. I'm suuuure.
Maybe a Twinkle pattern? Hah.
