Celebrating Tweed Day the Only Way We Know How: Handsomeness

Tweed Day

Breaking news: today is, apparently, Tweed Day.

Now, we’ve taken a pretty hard-line stance against bullshit holidays in the past. We even spent the requisite paperwork and fees to name a “No Bullshit Holidays Day” (get excited for May 10, gentlemen).

But we’ve also been known to bend the rules every so often, because... tequila. And today, we’re revising our stance once more to include the glorious celebration of a fabric that we rely on so dearly during the fall and winter months but won’t see much of for the next six or so. Like most of these holidays, the founding is dubious at best—but ultimately, it feels like a good enough reason to give the rugged wools a proper farewell until we meet again.

So, we present to you: a photographic ode to the handsomeness of tweed.»

Kempt Man of the Hour: John Legend

John Legend

How’s this for a coincidence: the best dressed gentleman of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner just happened to be showing up with a swimsuit model on his arm (specifically, Chrissy Teigen). Funny how that works out…

The gentleman in question is John Legend, wearing a satin-tipped midnight blue tux and a white bowtie, and leaving the rest of the gentlemen in the dust. It’s a reminder of the power of midnight blue when everyone else is in a straight black penguin suit.

And that having the right date is half the battle.
