Around here at ModXMan we speak our minds. And, we like it when others do the same. When it comes to style, we found a few style-setting guys we wouldn’t mind having a beer with on Rainey Street when they are next in town. Here’s what style means to them, so take note, amigos.
A bespoke shirt is one of the true luxuries that you can acquire. There’s nothing better than a fitted shirt. Once you’ve picked up your first one, you’ll never stop buying them – providing you can pay for it. Jason Statham
Always roll up the sleeves on your shirt. It gives the impression that you’re working, even if you’re not. Ashton Kutcher
I think a fragrance is more of a signature than even what you wear – something you’ll remember more down the road than a shirt. Ryan Reynolds
I credit my grandmother for my sense of style. She was known for wearing bright, outrageous things because it made people happy and she thought it made her more approachable. When you wear a brightly colored shirt or pants, it shows you don’t take yourself too seriously and it puts everyone around you at ease. Austinite Blake Mycoskie, founder of Tom’s Shoes
Tom Ford, who is my all-time favorite, once said to me, ‘Here’s the thing about dress shirts, Rob. You need white, and you need black.’ ‘What about blue,’ I asked. He said, ‘Have you ever seen Cary Grant in a blue dress shirt?’ Rob Lowe
Nothing should be perfect. I think that’s the most important thing. I do wear my jackets almost exaggeratedly short. So that’s probably the most mussed up. Along with, you know, not ironing my shirt. Thom Browne
I would have liked to invent the plain white shirt. Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons)
