He Dresses NBA Stars – Now He Wants to Dress You

There’s a new name in the suiting game, and it’s certainly one to watch. He’s the man behind the looks of the NBA’s most elite. (Chris Bosh and LeBron James’s bespoke suits? All him.) And now? He wants to add you to his best-dressed list.

Meet Waraire Boswell, one of the names behind the new ready-to-wear line “Boswell,” available to the masses starting in April.

Boswell and partner Jace Lipstein, founder of Grungy Gentleman, have created a 16-piece capsule collection that consists of four classic, single-hued looks, each of which includes a blazer, Henley, button-front, and chino. I have a sneaking suspicion these pieces will fly off shelves. My only question? Whether Boswell has plans to cater to men who are less, ahem, NBA-sized.

Shopping Equality: Coach Renovates for Men

Guys, are you tired of walking into stores only to find a miniscule-sized men’s section next to the sale rack? Times are a-changing. The newly renovated Fifth Avenue flagship Coach store is catering to you.

“Nearly a third of the 3,720-square-foot space is now dedicated to their men’s accessories, as well as their recently expanded ready-to-wear collection (including outerwear and knits),” writes Max Berlinger for Esquire.

“In addition to more acreage dedicated to the brand’s array of male-oriented leathergoods, there’s now a separate men’s entrance that leads to an interior outfitted with dark wood floors, slate gray walls, and chrome and leather furnishings.”

A super-exclusive entrance? We’re on the verge of jealously.

Spoiler Alert: George Clooney Smells Like Soap

The jig is up: Perfection does exist. And it lives in Clark Gable‘s multi-bajillion-dollar house. Oh, and it’s a dog person.

Or at least according to Esquire‘s Tom Junod:

He has a long neck, upon which his long head, adorned by long ears, wobbles like a tulip. Everything is to scale with him. Many people have long eyelashes; he has lashes as long on the bottom as they are on the top… He has recently showered, and a careful modicum of product lifts his hair off his forehead. He has surprisingly fine hands. He smells like soap.

Okay, okay, rub it in a little more. Clearly Mr. Junod was too distracted by Clooney’s eyelashes to ask about his love life. I suppose that’s how the man of mystery wins everyone over – chivalry and charm. They’re so flattered that personal inquires seem insulting.

So until one brave soul manages to break his shell (has Oprah tried yet?), we’ll just have to settle for perfection.

Guys, Listen Up: The Commandments of Holiday Style

It’s November, guys. If you haven’t started thinking about what to wear for Thanksgiving dinner, it’s time. And all-day football doesn’t mean you can chill out in sweatpants and your fraying Jeremy Shockey jersey (sorry to break it to you). While all that food makes comfort a priority, there’s a right way to do it. Try nicer jeans or cords, a sweater or blazer, and fall colors.
