“It moisturizes my situation…preserves my sexy.” Diddy, Proactive Infommercial.
He never fails to look freshed, dressed like a million bucks whether he’s rocking a sporty look at an awards show, walking the red carpet in a spiffy tux, or knocking around on the French Riviera in thin shirts and short pants.
Diddy does it best in his signature suits…
…but unlike most guys who stick to typical black or navy, Puffy mixes it up by wearing unexpected colors, donning variable neckwear, and playing with small details like lapel color, pocketsquares and vests.
When Puffy takes it down a notch, he still looks super sharp…
…in buttery leather jackets, dark jeans, darker sunglasses, and leather boots. He has an uncanny ability to make chunky toggle sweaters look masculine and shearling look sexy.
He kicks back a bit for vacations in St. Tropez and Monaco…
…but still exudes fly-ness in skin skimming shirts and fedoras.
Even at his most casual…
…his t-shirts are pressed, caps fitted, shoes sparkled, and jeans pressed. And his Yankees caps and Harlem World t’s show that he’s unequivocally New York.
If you want your guy to try this look, gently steer him towards the following items:

So since I’ve received zero submissions so far for women who have fashionable guys in their lives (I know there are some out there!), I want to give you a bit of an incentive. Nautica is debuting their new N Series Straight Leg Jeans for Spring 2007…
…and they offered to send a pair of cool new jeans to a man of my choosing. For the third TFB fashionable contest, I want you to send me pictures of the stylish men in your life. If I think your guy is the most fashionable of the bunch, I’ll send him a pair of Nautica Live N jeans. So get your submissions going! E-mail me at th************@gm***.com.
