Passing Judgment: Jeremy Piven at the Emmy Awards. Piven (pictured left) usually does a good job of channeling the sartorial whims of his Emmy-producing Entourage character, Ari Gold, but he was a little off at last night's award ceremony. While he took home the statue for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, that gargantuan tie swallowed everything in its path: the suit, the man and the statue. Any otherwise dapper outfit (love the pocket square) was simply overtaken by a tie that looks like a cow's tongue. We know you're short, Jeremy, but let's not overcompensate too much. And while I like the suit, I also would have preferred an of-the-moment peaked lapel for something a little more formal. Better luck next year!
Our economy is tanking, so we all have to stretch our wardrobe as far as it will go. Our neighbors to the north feel our pain, and Vancouver's Wings + Horn offers stylish reversible tees, now available at Blackbird. [Material Interest]
Black and white, the spectrum's simplest colors, are anything but when it comes to getting dressed. Digest these pointers so you don't end up looking like a mime. [Haute Concept]
