Fashion I.Q. - May 2012
It’s the year of the power suit. The Moods of Norway founders have designed a handsomely kicky look with a tapered leg and clever detailed lining sporting an irreverent label that boasts: “Made with Love by Really, Really Pretty Blonde Girls.” Original Stitch Boutique, $590.
Clients coming? Pour them a glass of water from this sophisticated bottle made of sturdy borosilicate glass with wooden stopper. Or fill it with a mixer for your next cocktail party at home. Black Bird Home Gallery, $35
The number of inches that should be between the tip of your thumb and the end of your sport coat sleeve. (And the cuff of your shirt should show.)
If you happen to be a little rock ’n’ roll, check out this eagle skull ring by Alkemie. Handmade with a unique blend of 100 percent reclaimed metals. Juno & Jove, $180.
Tired of working with those flimsy plastic collar stays? Then you’re gonna love Würkin Stiffs. The alloy stays keep your collar in place with a hidden magnet and they’re made locally. Cravats, $35.
Haven’t updated your cologne since 1998? Now is a perfect time to make the switch to a fresh scent. Givenchy describes its new Play Sport as a “concoction of elegance and hedonism.” Macy’s, Eau de Toilette Spray 1.7 oz. $57.
