Courtesy of all the love that’s floating around I decided to share my favorite left-over from the 5 BRANDS X FWST featuring Bohten the eye wear brand . This look got left out simply because it was less cohesive with the whole direction of the editorial, both concept and style wise, but it’s still my one of my favorites from the shoot.
We chose Bôhten eye Wear as part of our 5 Brands series for one particular reason; they are brand with a real story, an honest one carefully nursed with their passion for business and an undeniable desire to infect their surroundings with their contagious attention to quality and delivery.
Its throw back Thursday, so it’s only right that we visit one of the iconic photos that started this style craze of mine. I f you do not recognize the gentleman in the photo please be advised; the possibility of us getting through a chocolate éclair over brunch is slimmer than the side view of an anorexic model. Mr. Cary Grant has single handedly jump started a lot of style journeys of men through time, feel free to hold him responsible for making the gray suit synonymous with the word cool, I mean look at him, I bet he woke up like this. His outfit is so basic yet utterly flamboyant, draped in a gray pinstriped suit with a generous lapel size and a hint of earth via his pocket square, every style accolade thrown at this man befits him in every way.
