Celebrity Spotlight: Jon Hamm

I was watching the SNL rerun the other night and noticed (obviously) how well Jon Hamm looks in a suit.  I wonder if that is how he got the job on Mad Men…just solely on his wonderful ability to wear a well cut suit.  Well, it got me thinking, “I wonder how he looks at other venues besides the Man Men set and dressed as greasy Sergio on SNL?”  The answer to that question is GREAT..HE LOOKS GREAT! This man can pull of slouchy, business, casual, long hair, short hair, clean shaven, 5 o’ clock shadow, you name it, etc.  Take a look below at some of his looks and we’ll show you where you can find some of these items.

Jon Hamm with glasses and long hair

Jon seems to pull off the long hair look and not seem greasy or unkempt.  This is a wonderful feat.  Also, you know how we feel about a man in specs.  Below are some glasses by Prism that I have just fallen in love with.

Jon Hamm in double pocket shirt

What a great versatile button up!  The double pocket makes it more casual and thankfully there are a lot of different stores and designers that have perfected the fabric for a softer feel and a better fit.  We chose ours from J Crew (shocked?) the gods of a men’s button up.

I couldn’t do this post without including a picture of him in one of his famous fitted 60’s style suits!  Thankfully they are very in vogue now for guys who want a more contemporary look in the office.

Jon Hamm as Don Draper

Narrow aqua tie

So since we’ve covered this style suit several times, I thought I would focus on the tie which really makes the suit don’t you think?  Thankfully there is a website called www.narrowties.com that is completely devoted to, you guessed it, narrow ties!! They have different widths (1.5”, 2, 2.5”, and 3”), different fabrics (silk vs. knit) and several different prints (polkadot, stripe, etc.).

I hope you have enjoyed admiring Mr. Hamm’s style as much as I have and hopefully you’ll find ways to be as dashing as Don Draper and casual cool as Jon himself.

Mandals Challenge: The Final Countdown

So the Mandals Challenge has now officially come to a close. For those who may have missed it, Lauren challenged me to find a pair of men’s sandals that didn’t make her gag. I decided to make it harder upon myself and seek casual leather footwear. It was a long, scary road out there. Here is a glimpse of last weeks search:

Monday: Optimistic because I had a strategy! (Basically researching designer labels for a decent leather option)

Tuesday: The strategy proved to be failing…

Wednesday: I found myself back to the same place. The only sandals found were reminiscent of this man…

GOB's

Thursday: Mr F.

Socks with the Stocks

Friday:  This was my best find that day. Are these cool? I don’t know? I think I was looking around so much, I started to believe it.

Peu by Camper

Saturday:  _____________ exactly,nothing.

Sunday: Well the day of rest naturally.

Now its Monday morning and the competition is over. I have to say of what Mandals I did find, I felt that they would best be worn by a mature gentlemen of the  Tommy Bahama pursuit.

George Michael

Maybe the best comfort is sticking to what you know; Rainbows, Havianas, and the Adidas Slide for pool weather. Perhaps there is a mandal out there just waiting be discovered. Sadly, I haven’t found it yet.

It is undeniable that the anchor shoe in all of its Nautical glorious-ness is in for the season. (Did you see the sweet pair Lauren posted last Friday as the item of the week?) As a follow up, make sure to stock up on all of the great color options available. Everyone from Sperry to Gucci is riding this trend out. Make sure you ride this wave from Spring through Summer.
