John Krasinski is not particular high on my list of celeb crushes; in fact, most of the time he’s not even on my radar (to be fair, Benedict Cumberbatch and Colin Farrell take up most of my hot celeb mental real estate), but damn, John Krasinski in this outfit just became my #1 celeb crush. I have such a weakness for guys in cardigans, but throw in a striped tie and a checkered shirt and I don’t stand a chance. Emily Blunt is one lucky lady. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

I love GQ magazine. There are some really good writers and they generally have well-written and researched features. They also have a style column, written by punk rock icon (he made the film “Downtown 81″) Glenn O’Brien. O’Brien provides fairly no nonsense sartorial advice on things like how to wear a bowtie and whether or not fat guys should wear suspenders (they should!). In this month’s issue — featuring Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum on the cover — a reader writes:
Sometimes when I see certain style or look in your magazine, I try to imitate it. However, even when I have all the elements of the look, I feel less put together than the guys on the pages. What am I missing?
I could look at the mustachioed visage of Nick Offerman — Ron Swanson of “Parks and Recreation”– for days. His ‘stache is perfectly groomed and majestic, reminiscent of the glory of a flock of birds cresting over the horizon or a beautiful sunrise on a pristine white beach. Here, he reassures men participating in Movember — the mustache-growing men’s health awareness movement — that their puny, sad sack teenage dirt ‘staches will grow thicker and fuller. Just ask his video co-stars, “The Office”‘s Brian Baumgartner, Oscar Nuñez and Jake Lacy. You just have to give it time, says Nick, who reminds us that growing a mustache isn’t easy, but “nothing incredibly awesome is.” [Movember]

There’s an article in the New York Times today all about how men’s fashion from the Victorian era is making a comeback. At least, I think that’s what the article is about. I know I saw a line in there about tweed enjoying a renaissance, and a note about vests, woolen trousers, “henley undershirts,” and dark wool ties gaining popularity again, but frankly I was way too distracted by the accompanying slide show to pay much attention to the actual text. Holy mother of God, you guys, if I didn’t like a tweed and wool plaid vest on a man before, I certainly do now. Eric Brewer, a gallery owner in D.C. who’s organizing a group bike ride in his area where everyone must dress “dandy,” says: “The Victorian era was about a very trim silhouette and form, and I’m seeing tweeds that are cut that way. The thing is, tweed looks very elegant, but it’s a very sturdy fabric, so you can be dapper and still appear manly and rugged.” I’ll say. [via NY Times] Keep reading »
