50mostJeffFlakeClick to view the entire list!

If you’re too lazy to actually go through all 50, here are the highlights:

  • Mormon man-candy Jeff Flake comes in at number 1– can’t say I am entirely surprised
  • More than 1 chef appears on this list: Sam Kass & Zach Condry
  • A set of sisters made the cut, ranking back to back.
  • CNN Anchor Jake Tapper came in at #11
  • 4 red-heads made the list this year….go gingers!
  • Of the girls who ranked in, here are a few of the hotties : Sarah Zou(one of the sisters) Sarah Majzoub, Victoria Benner, and Lauren Culbertson

My personal rankings of the men with the best sense of style:

  1. Eric Ortega
  2. Sam Sanchez (although I have trouble believing he’s more than 15 years old)
  3. Paul Kendrick

Mad About the Men of Mad Men


Despite the show’s mid-century setting, the cast of Mad Men represent everything there is to love about men’s fashion- timeless classic pieces.  Great menswear has the ability to transcend time- a characteristic envied by women who constantly strive to be ahead of or on point with trends. If you have a wife or girlfriend you will notice that their wardrobes are constantly changing, while yours remains mostly the same give or take a few items. Unlike an A-line skirt or high-waisted dress pants, a suit with clean lines and exceptional fit will never go out of style. If Don Draper and Roger Sterling were real people living today they could easily wear the same suits now as the do on the show. I can almost guarantee that if you went out today and purchased a nice three-piece suit resembling that of Roger (left), or a more modest two-piece like that of Don (right) you could have and wear these items for the next 20 years or more, assuming you care for them correctly.

Government Shutdown: Keep Calm & Style On.

Government Shutdown: Keep Calm & Style On.

In light of the government shut down…let’s take a moment to admire Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s tie. Why I love it? It’s actually fun! Check out the boring ties in the background. Way to add some color to an otherwise grey situation, Boehner.

Kevin Spacey Monumental Mark at 2013 Emmy’s

Kevin Spacey Monumental Mark at 2013 Emmy's

All eyes were on Kevin Spacey last night as House of Cards became the first online exclusive series to ever be nominated in award show’s 65 years. While Spacey walked away Emmy-free, the Netflix original series won 3 Emmy’s, a monumental moment for the typically traditional Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Spacey said of the wins and his own nominayion, “It shows that the academy has a modern, progressive streak.” Emmy or not, there is no arguing Spacey’s performance was not epic as Congressman Frank Underwood. Spacey is so convincing that I actually wonder who showed up to last night’s award show: Spacey or Underwood? Spacey sported a sleek but traditional Navy and Black tux, similar to that of Neil Patrick Harris or to something we expect to see Underwood rocking at a congressional gala or state event.

True to character, Spacey (or Underwood) left the audience in suspense as to whether his flag lapel pin was purposely positioned upside down or if it happened by accident. It would not be at all suprising for Spacey to be making some sort of political statement with the pin as he has been notriously engaged in politics, even more so with his current role, but without any official comment from the star, it ‘s safe to assume this was just an accident.

Joseph Gordon Levitt at the 2013 VMA’s

Joseph Gordon Levitt at the 2013 VMA's

JGL looks classic yet fresh in this modern Prada ensemble. Why it works? Let’s start with the suit: 1. It’s perfectly tailored to his frame. 2. You can’t go wrong with a classic color like a medium, cool-toned grey. 3. The lines are clean and classic, without looking too stream-lined…Moving on to the shirt&tie combo: 1. The tie sits EXACTLY where it should- just above the belt buckle. 2. The colors are otherwise basic and even boring, but when paired together, they compliment each other and the suit jacket well.
