Ok, so I have basically spent my life looking people and their clothes. The vast majority of the time I was being paid to do it. Some of the time I did it because I was looking to get someone out of their clothes. Sometimes, IÂ just needed a laugh.Â So, by now, Iâ€™m not too fazed by too many things. I still love a lewk, I love seeing something new and beautiful, something clever and great looking. But its rare that someone always looks so good thatÂ I fear I might drop dead and void my bowels. Ladies and Gentlemen, enter Mr. Nick Wooster.
Nick Wooster is one of those people that, unless you read trade papers or read obsessive street style blogs, you wouldnâ€™t know he existed, but, exists he does. I first knew about him when he was a menswear buyer at Bergdorf Goodman, now heâ€™s a buyer for Park and Bond, an offshoot of the wildly successful gilt.com sample site franchise. He looks like someone from a Karlheinz Weinberger photo humped a J. Crew model. I saw him and I started to sweat. Not because I wanted to bang him, I wanted to be him. For all I know heâ€™s a total douchebag whoâ€™s into chicks. I donâ€™t give a fig, bitch looks good.
Here is someone who took some of the worst overwrought and easily misinterpreted trends, and not only nailed them, but mixed them together and makes it look totally authentic. Hyper preppy Americana, Military, Ironic Facial Hair, anything from Thom Browne, these are all reasons people share apartments in Brooklyn, but I think thereâ€™s a lesson here. Know yourself, know your body, and play to your strengths. Clothes should fit, no matter what your size (homeboy is pocket sized) grooming goes a long way, and as long as you have a decent watch and good sunglasses, you look like youâ€™re about to get laid. On a personal note, I thank him for making me feel good about growing old with an arm full of tattoos. Now can I bum a smoke?
