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.

A few months ago we appealed to *Vanity Fair* editor Graydon Carter—in an avuncular fashion—to discard the double-breasted suits which added an unflattering layer to his majestic midsection; the wrong kind of camouflage, if you will.

He has apparently taken our advice to heart»

At the house of Bill Blass, where he was recently installed as creative director, young designer Peter Som is overseeing the women's line (Michael Bastian has control of menswear). But Som, who worked for the late Mr. Blass himself after graduating from the Parsons School of Design and who debuted his own collection in 2001, is no sartorial slouch.

At a Le Cirque dinner the other night celebrating his new position, Som was in far nattier form than the laid-back Bastian usually musters»

Look sharp, men, the competition is heating up—we have our second repeat MOTH on the heels of Daniel Day-Lewis' landmark victory last week. The first time around, dandified Los Angeles-based vintage clothing mogul Cameron Silver caught our attention with a green velvet Gucci suit and custom croc loafers. At the Art of Elysium benefit gala in L.A. the other night he went one better in a custom-made toile dinner jacket that blew the lid off the staid black tie crowd.

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.
