Mind the Buffalo

There’s nothing quite like an expletive-laced Hollywood rant.

David Mamet—the man who brought “always be closing” into the lexicon, for better or worse—popped up on our radar again for a vintage memo sent to the writing staff of his show The Unit. In essence, it’s a rundown of his entire theory of drama in a thousand words. We won’t bother you with the whole thing here—it’s quite long and not exactly gentlemanly—but we will say that it’s all in caps, and halfway through he starts adding asterisks for extra emphasis.

All of which is to say, it's pretty awesome»

Kempt Man of the Hour: Matthew Broderick

It's officially the season of the single-breasted peak lapel suit—which suits us just fine. Once solely confined to the realm of bespoke, this snappy style dating from the 1920s has enjoyed a revival of late, as our two newest MOTHs can attest.

On the heels of Josh Brolin and his dapper D&G number comes Matthew Broderick in an equally alluring black birdseye wool model, worn to the premiere of David Mamet's new political play November the other night. Like Brolin, Broderick eschewed a necktie, opting instead for a signature stripe Paul Smith scarf, the stylishness of which we can personally attest to since the very same model is often found adorning our own neck this time of year.
