Elevating the levels of Obamarama to extreme Neck of the State have taken it upon themselves to chronicle nearly every tie the US president has ever worn, all available to view in the handy tie gallery. The purpose of the site is apparently to find meaning in Barack Obama‘s choice of neckwear and extrapolate some political insights from said neckwear. Good luck boys!

Details magazine caught up with the three guys from Gossip Girl recently in an interview which saw Brit bad boy Ed Westwick proclaim he was Batman… Er, ok!
Co-stars Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford also get a grilling in the forthcoming issue, with Crawford making clear the intentions for his character: “I’m hoping for a fall from grace for Nate. Five years from now, I better have murdered someone!”
This month’s 10 rules are by Marni creative director Consuelo Castiglioni. As usual there are a couple of universal rules (find your own style, don’t follow every trend, etc) but she also brings up the vanity of Italian men, citing men in suits that are slightly too small for them and the importance of shoes.
She states: “Shoes define the kind of man you are. They should never be too trendy or showy but lean toward the classic. There are a lot of ugly shoes out there, and they can ruin even the most sophisticated attire.” Having seen ugly shoes every day on the tube, I’d have to agree with this statement.
In this month’s Details, Lanvin’s Lucas Ossendrijver delivers his 10 rules of style. While we’ve heard some of these rules before, an interesting one he brings up is that ‘You shouldn’t adapt to what people expect you to wear’. I think that’s an interesting point and one to remember when you get stuck in a style rut.
A couple of his other rules are simply variations of this answer, but it’s always good to know what matters to one of the world’s top designers. I didn’t really understand his last rule where Ossendrijver states that:
“I don’t really like wallets. I prefer that you carry your money in your pocket or put everything in a bag and carry it there. Just keep it simple.”
Surely putting all your money and cards into a wallet is simpler than putting it into a bag?
Rules, rules, rules. Who needs them? Apparently men into fashion clearly do, otherwise men.style.com wouldn’t have monthly features on the ten rules of fashion. This month is Váronique Nichanian’s turn and the Hermes menswear designer chimes in with her ten rules of fashion.
The latest issue of Details proves that this is a magazine for the fresh faces and rising stars. From Daniel Radcliffe in leather to Jonathan Rhys Meyers in too-tight jersey, we now have another young star who’s set to be a success. And after what feels like forever, we have a subtle cover which just oozes cool (did anyone else find Radcliffe’s ‘tache slightly scary?) Mr Christensen sails dangerously close to the James Dean stereotype but has just enough personality to pull it of without leaving the reader feeling as if they should watch the publicised film/line/fragrance out of pity. The photo-spread is dark, unshaven and unapologetic. Hayden appears determined not to fall into the pretty-boy category and this allows you to think he’s cool without feeling guilty. Inside, we have articles on Somalian gangs, Hollywood smiles, a How-to on Divorce and an interesting looking article on that age-old question- Does size matter? Prepare yourselves for this, it look set to be big.
See after the jump for more of Hayden’s shoot.
US men’s fashion experts are hoping that David Beckham will inject a bit of style into the sporting world in America. "Hopefully it will inspire them to lift their game," said
Adam Rapoport, style editor at men’s fashion magazine GQ. "I
think athletes respond to competition well. If someone’s
looking better than them they want to get on par with them." Despite not yet arriving in the US Beckham has already appeared on the cover of US men’s style mag Details. Wendell Brown, senior fashion editor at Esquire, explained how US sports stars need sartorial guidance: "Desperately. And they’re in need of a tailor, I
hope Beckham has a major impact."
