a well-dressed man


"suit up!" - barney stinson

you're going to have to forgive me for this one - it's all about designer manccessories. you're also going to have to forgive me for putting the word "man" in front of everything: manscaping, mandals, manpurse... (i wanted to say murse, but can anyone definitively say if that's a male nurse or a man purse? SO confusing.)

i've seen a few man celebrities (see?! just jokes.) wearing burberry ties lately. the iconic burberry plaid in more subtle, subdued tones. a couple nights ago i was telling my brother-in-law that he MUST get one, and later that night i was watching how i met your mother and there was neil patrick harris ... in a burberry tie (see image above). this post was clearly pre-ordained.

my favourite tie at the moment:

new check silk tie
$135

and since we're talking ties, we may as well talk scarves...

$325

and since we're talking scarves, we're sure as hell going to talk sunnies...
$200

and since we're talking sunnies, we can't forget snoods...

["oh no wait a minute, don't go there cuz i ain't wit it." what on earth is a snood? traditionally, it's a close-fitting hood like a hairnet or religious head covering. in this case, the term, repurposed by burberry for fall/winter 2009, refers to a circular/continuous scarf. fashion wire daily reported that they were so hot on the runway last year in milan that over a dozen models pinched theirs after the show. even the wall street journal got in on the trend, asking: can the snood save christmas?]

----------
cable knit snood---------------------check snood
$325----------------------------------$295

there are even more amazing ties & manccessories here on the uk site. oh and this is by no means the last time burberry or menswear will come up. but i promise next time i'll post more pictures of male models. the pretty, girly ones...

[final thought: did you catch my earlier lyrical reference to the dangerous minds soundtrack?]
