Embracing the Lounge Lizard

Ben Cobb, editor of Another Man, first came onto our radar back in July when Vogue's Liana Satenstein documented her drenching sploosh over all things sleazy and unwashed in the world of men. While Cobb's wholesale adoption of 1970s apparel crosses over into being a costume, and while nobody can in good conscience endorse the man's grooming and hygiene regimen (if you want to call it that), it's worth recognizing that this era inspired many of the enduring elements of style that Unrefinery and others laud to this day: Namely that lapels can never be too broad, skinny low-rise pants are for children, and it's never possible to show too much chest hair. To this one might add that there's merit in synthetic blend fabrics and that wearing a vivid red peacock print signals to the world that you aren't a man with which to be trifled.

In other news, Tom Ford's AW 2016 collection is rolling out this week. Total coincidence.
