Here claim his third MOTH—only the second fellow to score a hat trick so far, the first being Hamish Bowles—is dandified Los Angeles vintage clothing kingpin Cameron Silver. We might have expected the irrepressible Mr. Silver to rescue us from the sartorial lapses of summer with something like the study in brown and cream he wore to the opening of the new Prada store in San Franciso.

The suit is a three-piece single breasted notched lapel number in nubby raw silk from Gianfranco Ferre‘s Spring 2008 collection – the last men’s collection the fabled fashionista designed before his ascension to the great couture house in the sky. Rounding it out is a shirt from Mr. Silver’s Beverly Hills tailor, Jack Taylor, a vintage YSL tie and harmonizing Charvet pocket square, and an eye-popping pair of three-tone Prada ostrich skin loafers.

The kicker, you might say.
