    Classic and/or powerhouse fragrances

    Simple, timelessly designed watches, mostly with leather straps and classic, fairly puristic dials, as well as few other and very understated accessories

    Often wearing dark and/or neutral colors, especially for workplace/office, formal, semi-formal wear

    and



    shirt



    fragrance

    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Clean & polished oxfords, in black or brown, ironed shirts & obviously, any fragrance from my wardrobe. I prefer business casual, than formal to work, unless any higher up's from senior mgmt pop up for a meeting, in which case, a full formal attire w/o a doubt (& mostly l'Humaniste / Reflection or Helmut Lang edc / edp)...

    Boots (Wolverine or Red Wing), raw denim and CdG Black or 2 Man.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Sandals to wholecut oxfords.

    Venue & , to a certain degree, audience are determinant.

    SuperfluousPastry, you're killing me! I LOVE your style!

    My three style essentials are:
    1. Impeccably manicured and polished nails
    2. Denim trousers, with pressed and starched creases
    3. Carefully selected SOTD

    It's hard to be me - I'm high maintenance.

    Good hair
    Stay lean
    Good shoes.

    Those are the basics of my style. I do like clothes but basic stuff mostly, body and hair seem to make a much bigger difference to how I look, than what I wear, if that makes sense.

    Pocket squares (even with 501s)
    Tweed (even lightweight silk/linen for warmer weather)
    Heritage (although K10 Gold is shown in this picture)
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    And for warmer weather, those horizontal-striped marinière shirts.

    Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses

    Paisley neckties

    Coach leather for my iPad case, work portfolio

    Original Retro Brand T-Shirts for lounging around the house

    Short haircuts (my wife has demanded that I never color my hair but go gracefully grey)

    I think George Clooney is a great style role model for a guy my age (48).

    I've lost 7 lbs. in January, but lean is a battle I don't win...but I am muscular...still a little soft.

    I have 2 out of 3. Lean is a big ask.

    This is a universal feminine struggle.

    My essentials:
    1. Black nylon stockings
    2. Meticulously planned outfit and SOTD pairing. It has to complement.
    3. My signature aqua hair dye!

    It does vary according to where I am going....no matter what the current fashion trend I love double breasted suits and blazers. Deep dark double breasted suit,silk tie with some color. Love leather...black leather blazer with jeans and a white shirt. Appropriate shoes and a nice watch.

    If I am staying home to watch football...you absolutely will find me in sweatpants and tee shirt.

    You, sir, have an exquisite taste. VC often gets overlooked in the luxury watch department (as does A. Lange, which I hold in a similar high regard) and for the life of me, I cannot understand why...

    Collection of black v necks and diesel swim shorts for home use...

    When out, tailor made dress pants, long sleeve slim fitted dress shirts and black oxfords... Shirts can have any color but I usually go for the deep blues, neutral tones or dark... never black on the dress shirts... (No jacket because of the weather)

    No watch... I believe that, either you go with a good watch, or with a nakef wrist... no in-betweens... And will not throw big amounts for a watch... Cant afford it...

    Perfume, usually a summer designer...

    Swim every single day...

    Stylish jeans
    Bohemian tops
    Ocean themed gold and silver jewelry.

    I have other more stylish essentials but these three represent me best.

    I have very different styles. You will find me strange if you know me just at work, just at home or dressed to practice sports and you meet me out of the environment you are used to see me.
    Here it goes two:
    Dark jeans
    Button-up cardigan
    Leather boots

    Aviator sunglasses
    Slip-ons
    V-neck sweater
