Mister Clooney Does It Right

Esquire is one of the few magazines that I subscribe to.  I enjoy the content – I think they do a good job.  George Clooney is on the cover of their January 2012 issue:


Of course I’m a Clooney fan – he seems like a good dude.  I think it’s fair to say that he’s a ‘style icon’; regardless, I like how he pulls off this look. His is wearing Armani and Grenson, but there’s a way that we can do it, too.  The gray flannel and brown shoes is an outstanding combination.  I also like the grays together – it is a very mature look.  Guys – do something like this for your next date – see how she likes it:

(Clockwise from top right):

1. J. Crew Ludlow Two-Button Suit Jacket: I’m not usually one for treating suits as separates, but this jacket has a great cut.
2. Sid Mashburn Spread Collar Dress Shirt: Avoid the cufflinks with this outfit, but wear a really nice shirt.
3. Allen Edmonds  Yukon Belt: Just the right belt – not too shiny.
4. Brooks Brothers Merino Wool Socks: When you have to wear socks…
5. LL Bean Signature Flannel Wool Dress Pants: Every man should own a pair of medium gray flannels.  You’ll wear them a lot more than you think.
6. Allen Edmonds Elgin Cap Toes: Finish off the outfit nicely.

    Great classic look. Gray trousers with brown shoes is one of my favorite looks.

    I do have a question. What are your thoughts on cuffs with flat front pants?
