So, forget the fact that he’s paired black with brown, though some do not have issues with that, but let’s just give credit where it is due.
This gentleman from New York has tossed society’s social pressures to the winds, because he does not just wear this Monocle, he owns it.

Last night I was at dinner with some friends, and one of them asked me what exactly constituted the proper attire for going out. I guess many guys think they simply have to pair suit jackets with some oddly striped shirt that they untuck so that they look “more casual” (ps. don’t ever wear a shirt with that many stripes).
Whatever you want to wear to “go out” should be appropriate to A: wear you’re going and B: the weather. If you choose to wear a suit, go full out suit and don’t be embarrassed to do so, you’ll stand out (in a good way) unless you’re going to a Rodeo Bar.

It hasn’t exactly been spring time weather, at least not on the East Coast of the States. This gentleman from London illustrates how to incorporate spring-time color even when there isn’t spring-time weather.
We are big on color here. It is no wonder that when we heard the Levi’s were going to push out jeans with some truly brilliant matte-like colors, we got excited.
You can of course snag a pair at Levis.com

I was just going through shots at altamira, seeing all the style from London fashion week, and I saw Kanye West, sans mullet.
Did Kanye actually cow-tow to the pressure of people questioning his choices with the mullet? I wonder if Kanye is capable of even acknowledging that people might have not caught on with Kanye’s hair choice.
Though, I have to say that cardigan is pretty sweet.
