Men.style.com
has compiled their top 25 stylish moments of 2008, sadly it doesn’t include me, grey acid washed, one shoe, a bottle or rum and a whole load of vomit- a classic look to span decades. What is even more upsetting is that rapping retard Kanye West features in this list and as 2008 draws to a close is still alive, so my prayers have gone unanswered.

Check out the The Most Stylish Moments of 2008 here.

The NY Times is showing us the way in this season of plaid with their guide to 10 ways to wear -drum roll please- …plaid. I’m not sure there really are 10 ways but maybe 3 repeated and I’ll be honest it’ll take a brave man or a Scotsman to step out in some, if not all of these outfits- but you be the judge. Check out the guide here.

AskMen.com Explore the Sartorial Savvy of Gianni Agnelli

By Will Reid on November 13th, 2008

portrait-06.jpgGianni Agnelli is a man constantly sourced as style inspiration to fashionistos across the world. From his flair for fine tailoring to his edgy take on accessories, this man had a look that was extremely well-executed and so timeless that it is still being copied on the catwalks of today. Agnelli’s grandson, Lapo Elkann, continues to wear all of Agnelli’s bespoke suits and it is no coincidence that Elkann has, in recent years, been hailed as a modern style icon by the likes of US Vogue and Esquire.

The article is full of great style advice such as, “if you want to dress like an iconoclast, your first step is to dismiss all of the old rules of fashion — just like Gianni Agnelli did when he wore his wristwatch over his sleeve cuff.”

Alan Flusser: fuck you clothes

By Jonathan Smith on November 3rd, 2008

Men.style.com has posted this rather good video of Alan Flusser, the tailor and author of many books on style and fashion. Flusser talks about style rather than fashion and how you should base your clothes on what suits you fit, colour and fabric wise- something I wholeheartedly agree with. The temptation is always there to wear something that is very cool, but looks like a sack of crap off the hanger and on you, let’s face it we all do it.

Flusser goes on to say that style transcends fashion and should be timeless and once again I agree that constantly chasing fashion is too expensive and too much hard work; it’s far better to find a good look for yourself and then augment it as fashion moves on. Alan also discusses men’s catwalk fashion and how it alienates many men from following or being interested in menswear, which I think we can all agree is a fairly accurate statement.

Check out the video below to hear from Alan himself on style, Hollywood and Thom Browne.

How to: The perfect turn up

By Jonathan Smith on September 17th, 2008

Be they around your wrists or your ankles this year it’s been all about the turn ups, which is why we can all thank American GQ for giving detailed instructions on how to do the perfect shirt sleeve turn ups in this September’s issue. The technique is as follows:

1- Flip your cuff back, then pull it up toward your elbow, allowing the sleeve below to turn inside out as you go. Stop when the cuff is just above your elbow.

2- Evenly roll the inside out shirting that is now below the cuff until it’s covering half the cuff, locking in the sleeve.

3- Leave the rest of the cuff out so that it subtly flies out of the roll.

4- Admire your new look in the mirror. Briefly. Now swagger out the door.
