When Tom Ford wrote a list of 15 things every man should have for the 15th anniversary of Vogue.com he spoke of having a good cologne that becomes a signature. I tapped a friend of mine who works for a major cosmetics company for some information about scents and he dropped some serious science on me. So here is the crash course.
The average young man today dresses much differently than his counterpart of a century ago. Think "Boardwalk Empire" not "Mad Men." Of course I do not mean to propose that the men of today should dress as they did in the past, but what I am trying to highlight here is a change in the attitudes surrounding dress, and how that relates to self-respect and the respect of others.

A friend of mine just showed me Taika Waititi's TED talk from TEDxDOHA and I was really impressed with his perspective on creativity and success. Waititi's notion of success as being communication, and of creativity being linked to seeing things through the lens of a child, left me wondering how all of this relates to style. One can most certainly have creativity without style but I believe that the inverse is not true.
