Kempt Man of the Hour: Cameron Silver

Well-dressed men in a dressed-down town like Hollywood are something of a rarity. Dandies on the order of Cameron Silver, owner of A-list vintage clothing emporium Decades, are practically an endangered species. The 6'3” fashion plate, pictured here with Debbie Mazar, showed his colors at a party for Boucheron's Animaux jewelry colllection to benefit L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art earlier this week.
Silver sported a dark green cotton and silk velvet evening jacket with matching “skinny” trousers straight off the runway from Gucci's current collection, accessorized with a custom-made Charvet shirt and a pair of crocodile Gucci loafers—sort of.
You see, Silver's favorite Guccis only came in boring colors, so he had them custom copied by a cobbler in Hong Kong in green croc (for starters). Far from being put out, the Gucci folk he knows are merely jealous. As they should be.
