I Know I Know... I'm Overdoing StreetFsn... But It's So Colourful!

So, I want to say something here. The first time I saw this red-white-blue ribbon band detail on navy suits was at a store called Inapore on the Rue De Rennes, Paris 6eme last July. The owner of the store had a navy suit in the window with red-white-blue ribbon sewn into the breast pocket top side and potentially on the patch pockets - but I could be wrong. I tried it on but it did not fit and I decided to go for a one button navy suit he had on sale. Very very good value for what it was. Now this red-white-blue ribbon detail has shown up a year later on StreetFsn.

Now to the next bit - the dude below shows up everywhere. Paris, Florence, New York, Milan - who is he? But more importantly, how does he fund this jet set lifestyle which must involve some serious time with his tailor in between jaunts. If anyone can answer this question, I would be delighted to receive the answer as a comment. I got to the bottom of finding out who Angelo Flaccavento is and now I want to find out about this other dark horse of international fashion...

The last thing I want to say is, what is your opinion on the number of working buttons that should be shown on a bespoke sleeve?

Thank you Michael for passing that on. And here is the answer:

Make no mistake, Nick Wooster is an Internet superhero. If you're looking for proof, simply Google Image search the staggeringly well-dressed men's fashion director for Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. OK, you're welcome. Images like those have become a meme unto themselves on Tumblr, the micro-blogging platform where Wooster has become a cult figure.
"It is so absolutely shocking to me," Wooster told GQ. "I am just an old midget queen who, you know, had the good fortune to get this job and it's like, 'How did that happen?' It's very, very flattering. I guess I know how to dress myself, and that's probably the only thing I can do, so it's nice that somebody notices." He's being modest. For this week's edition of 10 Essentials, Wooster supplies items essential to his look and his state of mind. "I was trying to come up with something a little more clever, but at the end of the day, I'm a consumer, so that's what you got. " Learn from a master.

  1. Hi Nicholas,

    I understand that the dude's name is Nick Wooster, and that he's a buyer or something for Bergdorf Goodman or Neiman Marcus or maybe both.

  2. Nicholas,

    If you already didn't know, I believe that the items of clothing with the detail are from Thom Browne.

    One button max... unless you're really making a point that you prefer custom-tailoring rather than off the rack mediocrity.
