Buttonholed

Speaking of male accessories, we’d like to point out one of our favorite benefits of wider lapels: space for a few adornments.

This gentleman from Seoul has the right idea, pinning an interesting trinket onto both lapels. Of course, the trad in us prefers the old Victorian buttonhole carnation—a trademark of British gents from Evelyn Waugh to John Steed—but we understand you’d prefer a more modern approach.

Just try not to poke too many holes in your jacket.

Kempt Man of the Hour: Matthew Goode

*Photographed by our fearless lensman, Patrick McMullan.*

We were admittedly more than a little wary of the idea of a remake of one of our favorite films of all time, the BBCs 1981 adaptation of *Brideshead Revisited*, and frankly surprised that anyone would have the brass to undertake it in the first place (Do you fuck with Jeremy Irons? No you do not).

We'll suspend further critical judgments until we're able to screen the new one in its entirety, but in any case we fully approve of any cinematic endeavor featuring so many fine examples of 1920s British gentleman's kit. And we're already predisposed to approve of the convincingly toff-y Matthew Goode, who was one of the few redeeming features of *Match Point* and has the daunting task of filling Irons' brogues.
