It's been a while since I've done some celebrity critiquing and a few of you have called me out on it.  So, back by popular demand is a critique of the men's style at the 2017 Golden Globes.  I should say that I did not watch the televised event so I have certainly missed some ensembles so I am...

Dear Readers, The past five and a half years since The Fine Young Gentleman began has been a beautiful adventure.  Before going further, I need to thank each of you for reading the blog.  Without your readership, comments, emails and support this site would have folded long ago (do not worry, The Fine Young Gentleman is not going away anytime...

red-christmas-sweater-and-blazer-square

     Not excited about your fourth ugly Christmas sweater party of the season?  Neither am I.  As an alternative to those notorious sweaters I'd like to showcase yes another alternative.  The first was two years ago, perhaps I will make this a yearly thing.  Upon reflecting on my comments from that post I have concluded that I am indeed...

The Christmas season is indisputably one of the best times of the year.  'Tis the season to ask your loved ones to buy you the things that you would or even better, would not buy for yourself.  And that is a beautiful thing.  Here are a few ideas to add to your own list or if you are shopping...

pitti peacocks 1

Twice a year Pitti Uomo happens in Florence.  It is the largest menswear trade show, perhaps you could call is the show of shows, or something like that.  This season the show garnered particular attention for a few shows that were put on during Pitti (ie Raf Simons) as well.  I suppose it is fitting that it occurs in...
