    Beautifully assembled.

    Though I like all seven of these looks, each so individual, this is my favorite outfit: somehow traditional (classic lines, black and silver), yet with panache (the hat, the amazing Galliano coat). I see Douglas around New York City alot, and he is always well put together. Makes me miss the days when people were chic…and FUN!

    I have also seen this chic young man around town always stylishly dressed and frequently topped with a handsome hat. This outfit is smart, elegant and classy. I half way expected Douglas to have a tall dog accompanying him on a leash, like an updated neo Ralph Lauren ad.

    elegance, style and creativity all at the same time – what a pro
