    Xmas Espionage

    Sorry, gents, I had to go dark for a while. It’s been a few months since my last column. I’ve been working on a secret squirrel assignment that will blow your $30 Paul Smith socks off, once the mission is complete. But more about that later. As we reconvene, my biggest fear is losing the proverbial ground we captured during 2010. Why you ask? Because, guys, we aren’t in charge of anything as soon as the Christmas tree goes vertical and your normally sweet girl goes festivity crazy.

    When the Worlds of Fashion Collide

    Man Can Live By Shoe Alone

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, I am already way over my word limit for this column. So let’s get right to the point: Spend good money on good shoes and you will thank yourself today, tomorrow and five years from now. And so will your date. The shoes shown here are George Esquivel’s babies, and yes, they are without a doubt the greatest pieces of footwear on the planet. These are like a G5 for the your feet. And that’s what a great shoe does—it elevates you and your look.

    Sense of Sensibility

    In the military, a lot of cross-training takes place with other units that have different specialties or unique talents. Sometimes these other units are from different services, and sometimes they are from other countries. Similar to the World Cup, it is quite the event: Revelry and hooliganism frequently ensue, and ambassadors may have to get involved in international incidents over seemingly trivial matters. Who knew the Japanese envoy’s daughter was only 16!?

    It’s a Desert Out There

    Heads up, guys, it’s time to jump into your desert-colored Battle Dress Uniforms (BDUs) and get ready for another mother of a summer. As much as everyone loves the season—the babes, the barbecues and insane pool parties that blur day and night—summer presents a problem for those of us who are sartorially inclined and must rock business attire regardless of what the thermostat says.

    Don’t be a business casual-ty

    Gents, we are going to move away from the formal, buttoned-up how-to’s and delve into casual wear. We can’t have you getting FUBAR once you bust outta the suit and hop into your casual threads. This brief will cover more of the business-casual angle, since bathing suits are self-explanatory and if you’re older than 22, you shouldn’t be wearing Abercrombie anyways.

    Picking out the right suit is risky, so try to follow these orders

    Good day, gents. It’s spring, and while most people are battling seasonal allergies, we are battling something else that makes the nose run and hives appear: bad suiting. That’s because spring is the start of wedding season, which in turn marks the beginning of the Summer Suit Crisis. But don’t panic. Just keep in mind the JFK quote, “When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.” So consider this your fresh opportunity to look great in a suit.

    Tied and fit: men’s accessories

    During our last brief (Feb. 4), we covered wardrobe building blocks, style basics and some fit guidelines. Keep those in mind as we begin to navigate the minefield of men’s accessories, which can be tricky. It is best to use the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) approach when it comes to selecting your hardware. Remember, less is more—unless we’re talking style, in which case more is definitely more.
