GQ's 'Style Guy' Increasingly Out to Lunch

<em>GQ</em>'s 'Style Guy' Increasingly Out to Lunch
In the August issue of GQ -- the one with Seth Rogen on the cover -- "Style Guy" Glenn O'Brien admits to leaving a single button-down collar button unbuttoned, calling it a "je ne sais quoi casualness" and "flaunted carelessness." We think he means "artful dishevelment," but this is "overly-engineered dishevelment," and trying way, way too hard. The desired go-to-hell air needs to look completely uncalculated.

In the same issue, he endorses the hoodie, primarily for its blue-collar roots and utility. White-collar roots are preferable, and that damn hood is non-functional and simply in the way at least 90% of the time. Also, Suede from Project Runway wears them a lot.

Follow his advice at your own risk.

Guilty Of Disorderly Conduct ... in His Closet*

Bigger Problems Than A Bathroom Sex Scandal
Bigger Problems Than A Bathroom Sex Scandal
Conservative Republican senator Larry Craig is in trouble for wanting to have anonymous sex with another man in an airport bathroom. But he clearly has bigger problems than public humiliation, a misdemeanor disorderly-conduct charge, and loss of his seat in the US Senate: namely, double-pleated and tapered khakis, loaded Blackberry belt clip, shiny penny loafers, and a pen in his shirt pocket, without a protector.

If we were his wife, we'd be wearing sunglasses, too, or possibly a Nixon mask.

* Closet. Get it?

GQ Flops

We hope they're kidding

This summer GQ recommended wearing plastic flip flops to a summer wedding. If you wear plastic flip flops to a magnificent bastard's wedding, prepare to be beaten to within an inch of your life with them.
