LESS man LESS

I enjoyed reading all your responses about classic movies and your favorite leading men. It's been brought to my attention, that I've been missing out on the Paul Newman! I did however eat a lot of his popcorn when I was a kid. In the meantime, I leave you with style tips, Steve McQueen style. This is from a battered Menswear Magazine issue, circa 2004!! that i've always held onto.
Steve McQueen
ps. I am adamant about men wearing watches. Ijustusemycellphone is NOT an excuse.

  1. Oh yes, I totally agree on men's watches, I have already given hubby three, and wish I could save up to get him a really nice Rado chronograph, the ceramic band/watch is just gorgeous...

    PS. Paul Newman...hot hot hot! Haven't seen that many movies with him, but he's definitely one of the leading men.

  2. "I am adamant about men wearing watches. Ijustusemycellphone is NOT an excuse."---SO TRUE. Perhaps the only occasion I wouldn't wear a watch would be when none of the watches I have fit into the color palette or work with the lines of my outfit ha ha.

    The DIY project on a Le Pliage bag? Way daring for me! LOL It may not be an Hermes, but it is is no means a cheap bag either! And those new longchamps are rather charming :)

  3. Very inspiring, thank you! I must admit though I do not currently use a watch as the amount of design work I do in the workshop these days means I'd probably break it, but I have my eye on Obama's watch which I'm saving for!

  6. Ooh! So with you on the watch thing. I can't imagine Steve McQueen being a slave to a cell phone. Not cool!

  7. I do love wearing watches, I keep thinking I should just splurge out one time on a lovely one and keep it until I have kids to give it to. And I agree wholeheartedly with him on classic fashion, although new trends are always fun, I never base my entire wardrobe around them!

  9. I agree also. There is something unique and captivating about a man wearing watches. I wish I had a cool watch. Or a watch period. :P
