Question For…. Nick Wooster

You’re a fashion role model and Internet style icon, what do you think others see in you that has inspired this?

 

I can only imagine it’s because I’m willing to ‘go there’ and take chances.  Getting dressed is really the only area in my life that I can say I am fearless; I’m terrified of so many things, yet am somehow not afraid to wear anything. For me, it’s always been rather innate. As a 5 year old I was specific about the way everything fit, even a t-shirt.

 

What do you find is the biggest challenge for guys who want to look good, but don’t know where to start?

 

Whenever it’s out of their comfort zone, guys need a blueprint– they have an event: what do I wear? They’re going to a black tie: what does that mean? They’re going to meet their in-laws: how do I impress? I think that overall guys are interested in acquiring a wardrobe based on problem solving; finding something cool that fits into their lives.

 

All the young bloggers geek out about double monk strap shoes and tailoring– very old school, traditional elements. Cool doesn’t necessarily mean avant-garde.

 

The thing that started it all was probably casual Friday; the thing that was supposed to be liberating fucked things up more than anything.

The Sartorialist: Lunch For 25

 

About a year ago, Scott and I were sitting at a small Trattoria in Florence. The place looked amazing– not only the simple and traditional decor, but also the irreproducible Italian atmosphere and overall elegance of the gentlemen.

 

“Doesn’t this place look like the best fashion story ever?” I asked Scott.

The Sartorialist: Lunch For 25


About a year ago, Scott and I were sitting at a small Trattoria in Florence. The place looked amazing– not only the simple and traditional decor, but also the irreproducible Italian atmosphere and overall elegance of the gentlemen.

 

“Doesn’t this place look like the best fashion story ever?” I asked Scott.

 

“Yes!” He said, “Real, cool, diverse– It’s like if all the best dressed guys I know got together for lunch….. We should just do that!   Get my favorite guys together in one room, it would be so much fun. These guys have so much in common and yet, for most of them, their paths never cross. Just imagine, someone like Gianluca, with his dreadlocks and modern-minimalist aesthetic sitting next to Lino, with his old-school Italian charm…. Mr. Kurino and Simone Righi discussing their first suit, Kanye and Terron talking about whatever it is those two super funny characters could dream up… I’m just guessing, but I bet these guys would really hit it off.   What a great way to forge new friendships.”

 

“Scott… You should do it!!!” the idea sounded fantastic to me.

 

And that’s what Scott did. I can tell you, I was so jealous not to be in Florence for The Inaugural Sartorialist Lunch. But, here are a few photographs and a video to let you share the first of what we hope will become a biannual event that grows every year through a continually increasing diversity of style and deepening camaraderie between friends.

 

Hope you enjoy,

 

Garance & Scott

 

*We would like to thank Simone and Guido in Florence for their helping to make this event happen, it would not have been the same without you.
