The Color Purple

Emore went to Connecticut and all he brought us are these stupid pictures of purple clothes… J. Crew and Forever 21 Uniqlo and H&M If you haven’t noticed yet, purple is the fall color… But does that mean it’s your color?

Casual Monday

Corporate dress code bureaucracy makes me feel funny. My office is business casual. Business casual = no jeans. Casual Friday, then, equals jeans. Because we couldn’t have Casual Friday (client interaction) last Friday, we were given a Casual Monday, today. Now, since I could never tarnish the sanctity of the Monday, I came up with […]

Jesus Jones’ “Right Here, Right Now”

Take a look at this, kids: I don’t know about you, but to me, despite the aged-looking photo, they look like your typical upper-middle class teenagers who enjoy skateboarding, loitering, and overpriced tees. But this picture is from 1990, and the people pictured are the indie-electronica rock band, Jesus Jones. Not impressed? ┬áThink about it. […]

Levi’s 501 Shrink-To-Fit / Goodbye Summer

I’ve never paid more than $32 for a pair of jeans. I simply couldn’t afford it. Nevertheless, I’ve always managed to have jeans with a unique look and perfect fit. How? Before summer ends for you, like it is for me, I suggest you do this: Huntington Beach, CA. Buy Levi’s 501 Shrink-to-Fit jeans in […]

Hi world, I’m back.

Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but I haven’t posted in almost three weeks. I’m sorry, but I have good reason: I’ve been busy looking for employment, and come Monday, I will be joining the ranks of Corporate America! Every fashion blogger’s dream! Look how excited I am! Splash Mountain, Disneyland. Haha. But really, I am excited. […]

Shia LaBeouf’s DUI

This definitely deserves a post. For someone who just graced the cover of GQ, who’s on top of his career right now, endangering the lives of others is a shame. It’s interesting to note, however, the effect “edge” can have on your image. Thomas Watkins writes on the incident: LaBeouf has had previous brushes with […]

Most Annoying Campaign of 2008

Cas’ post about the best fashion campaigns inspired me to submit my nomination for the most annoying campaign of 2008: D&G has always had controversial campaigns, but this one just doesn’t feel right. Perhaps because it is in every magazine, perhaps because it always catches me off guard. Please tell me I’m not alone…anyone?

The DBag Neck Revisited

I’m confused. I went clubbing over the weekend with some new friends in West Hollywood. No, not that kind of confused. But it is well established here at the Steel Closet that you are not supposed to rock a deep v-neck t-shirt, affectionately dubbed the “douchebag” neck, for various reasons. However, and I’m trying not […]

The Staggered Tie

As you know, Fonzworth Bentley is a fashion icon with tremendous style. He also happens to have a new television show, through which he can showcase his talent. Let’s take a look at his first episode suit. Besides being slim-cut and stylishly mismatched, he utilizes a subtle technique that rounds out and adds a touch […]

Janine Driver’s “Power Zones”

I like to watch CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch from time to time, and today’s episode featured body language expert Janine Driver. Her concept of the power zones, the neck dimple, belly button, and “naughty bits,” and how exposing them demonstrates power was especially interesting. She used this picture of George Clooney as […]
