I was at the airport waiting to check my bags in for an international flight. I was about to be seriously annoyed because it was taking so daggone long, and I was admittedly cranky. However, what delivered me from my crankitude was the husband and wife duo waiting just in front of me. I had dismissed them earlier because I was in my own funk, and they were keeping me from my goal: the desk. But when the man went to check his watch (he, too, was having a bit of impatient crankitude), I noticed something gleaming in the horrible fluorescent light. It was a cufflink. Simple. Demure. Silver. Square. C’mon now! I wanted to stomp around like I was in church. I kept looking and further gettin’ the Holy Ghost. His brown leather shoes were laced, shined, and soled. (Glory!) He sported a Louis hard-cased suitcase. He wore a simple white-collared shirt and a nice blue blazer with his jeans. (Thank You, Jesus!) I raised my hand high to the heavens lookin’ like I wanted to give that gentleman a high five, because I DID!
A GQ Man is my cup of tea all day long. Why? Because dressing well has become a serious lost art, and we need Sotheby’s and Christie’s on lock to help some of these men understand the value of a great wardrobe game!
If you have a man in your life who can use a bit of sprucing up, by all means, give this man a hand up. Because just like the man at the airport, his wife was looking just as lovely. You want to be a great team, and part of that is looking (and feeling) amazing.
Introduce your man to a tailor, get him a subscription to GQ, Men’s Health, Vanity Fair, Travel and Leisure. (Folks always look on point in these magazines.) Throw in a few catalogues for Porsche, BMW, and TAG Heuer for style. He can learn from example. Also introduce him to a good barber, cobbler, and haberdasher. God is in the details!
