SPONSORED POST: BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT.

  • Kempt Staff

It looks like Hugo Boss is getting in touch with their nocturnal side.

The German mega-brand just launched a new fragrance, BOSS BOTTLED. NIGHT., as a nighttime counterpart to the already-iconic BOSS BOTTLED. It’s a whirlwind of birch, lemon, sandalwood and a few spicier top notes, ready for anything the nightlife might throw at you.

Hopefully, it recreates the rush you get when you step into your favorite tequila bar.

The Greatest

The celebrity profile is wearing pretty thing these days, but luckily Esquire has come up with the kind of Pop Art idea that ade their name in the 60s: use the same language to write gushing profiles of random, everyday people. What was that about 15 minutes again?

The result is Esquire’s profile of the Best Dressed Real Man in America named as the most sartorially accomplished non-model/actor/designer/musician. His name is Kenyatte Nelson, he’s a pharmaceutical rep from Cincinatti, and this was the only way he was ever going to get a profile in Esquire

The other day we were musing on the go-to-hell fashions at ultra-fancy Hamptons summer benefits which enliven an otherwise dull sartorial season.

On the flipside, there's something to be said for the seamier sort of East End bacchanal, the kind where they use any means necessary to pack the joint and drum up publicity, such as the Hugo Boss and Interview magazine shindig at the Kingswood Estate in East Hampton the other night.

He creeped us out in *Match Point* and modeled for Versace and Hugo Boss before embarking on his latest role—a kind of priapic, po-mo Henry VIII in *The Tudors*—but Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has always won full marks for his stylish attire.

At the *Tudors* premiere the other night, he sported an ensemble that had an almost Rockabilly look to it: a midnight blue dress suit with satin piping on the lapels—custom-tailored by John Galliano—and a superskinny leather tie by Camilla Staerk.

The prevalence of the Sleek Grey Suit among men of style these days is aesthetically appealing but not terribly interesting, sartorially speaking. But here comes Stanley Tucci to show us how it should be done.

Tucci, the acclaimed actor (and also writer, producer and director) who currently has seven different movies in production, elevated the SGS to a whole new level with the simple addition of a dashing, brilliantly hued scarf.
