Bout Board: Bright White

I’ve been on a roll pinning boutonnieres lately, so I figured I’d start a series rounding up the best of the best for different occasions, palettes, and seasons.

Versus: Chris Pine vs. Zachary Quinto

Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock, aka Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, teamed up to promote the premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness. Both guys got suited up for the event, but which one did it better? Chris chose a three-piece pinstriped suit in traditional black. He added an unexpected twist with a contrasting polka dot […]

Featured: Martha Stewart Weddings

The Confetti Pop crew asked me to style a groom for their DIY Herringbone Mobile Backdrop for Martha Stewart Weddings’ blog, The Bride’s Guide. I came up with this groom’s look to match Martha’s cornflower and melon palette. The team at Men’s Wearhouse kindly let me raid their inventory to create this look, which iss traditional with a […]

Style Snapshot: Chambray Champs

I came across a pin last night that deserved a second glance, so I clicked on over to Style Me Pretty to check out this entire inspiration shoot. And man, was it worth it. Here’s a peak of some of the chambray details the guys wore, one chose a pink shirt, the other blue. Both […]

Well-Groomed Q&A: Purple, Grey, and Vintage. What Do I Wear?

Q: I’ve just started the wedding planning process with my fiancée and would love to get some advice on wedding outfits both for myself and the groomsmen. We’re looking at a purple/wine/burgundy with grey/charcoal color scheme, and I was wondering how I could fit that into a rustic/vintage outfit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -Matt […]
