Brian and Style

My spouse has foreseen the fashion trends, according to MSN. (Well, MSN didn't state it quite that explicitly).

    Fedoras Last year it was the newsboy cap, this year it's the fedora. Not everyone can pull it off, but a men's-style fedora, especially paired with a sleek low ponytail, can be chic, polished, and warm all at the same time. Try one in a preppy tweed, like Kangol's Newmarket Trilby ($54).
Please, baby, no ponytail.

Might I direct you to the most accessible Brian-in-fedora pics? See, when he puts on the hat, you can't tell he has hair. When we met, Brian had these very thick glasses that distorted his eyes a bit (he usually wore contacts). Those are not shown in these pics, but if he put them on with the fedora, he looked like Toht, the medallion-handed villain in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Hence, he brought this to the world. I just thought I'd share.

Ladies and gentlemen, Toht or Not!. Don't forget to rate him!

Why wouldn't I?

The green and gold fashion season in Wisconsin lasts from August to April. I'm carrying that on gamely down here.

Ponytail? Next the mullet will be back. Or here for the first time.

I wish I could pull off a fedora as suavely as BJN.

Lest we forget, when I first met Heather, I had a mullet pulled into a scrawny little ponytail beneath the back of my fedora.

I was styling, some six or more years ahead of fashion. Of course, back then, it was considered 40 years and 10 years out of fashion. I think those "out of fashion" judgments ran concurrently, though.

I will NEVER tell you the location of the Ark!
