Capitol Hill Style may focus on women’s fashion, but that doesn’t mean that the men don’t need a little help. Or a lot of help. From male muffin tops to pants that are too short to color combinations that are too garish for a funkadelic Halloween costume, the men of Capitol Hill commit their fair share of faux pas.
In the November issue, the staff at GQ makes over six Capitol Hill gentlemen who were in desperate need of a style intervention. One of the men, 2012’s 50 Most Beautiful winner Max Engling, has made an appearance on this blog before. I believe I called his ill-advised black was canvas jacket reminiscent of a B-movie villian, so I was so glad to see that the stylist at GQ hated the “loud” blazer as much as I did.
And if you’re looking for a few shops that cater to well dressed gentlemen, I’d start with Hugh and Crye for shirts. Men’s shirts that actually fit better without tailoring and don’t cost an arm and a leg? Yes, please.
