Simply beautiful style.
Rules of Style: Nick Wooster

There’s a good reason pictures of the retail maven and street-style star Nick Wooster come across your desktop so much—the man knows how to put together an outfit. As the newly minted creative director and co-owner of Atrium stores in NYC, Wooster dishes on his secret to traveling comfortably, the belt every man needs to buy, and the real reason he’s covered in tattoos.

1. If you can’t afford a Rolex buy something equally as interesting at the other end of the spectrum like a Luminox—those are really cool. Don’t buy a watch trying to emulate a Rolex.

2. I subscribe to the notion of the sartorial mullet—stay tailored up top and less buttoned up on the bottom. I love funny pants.

3. If you’re going to play with color start with one. If you’re wearing yellow, everything else should be navy and grey. Yes, I’ve been known to wear bright green and pink at the same time but I don’t do that often—the bulk of my closet is grey, navy, white, khaki, olive, and a little black.

4. If you’re putting in the effort to wear a tie, finish it off with a smart and simple tie bar. Not a decorative, big, or funny one. Just something functional.

5. A quarter-and-an-inch chocolate brown belt with a sterling buckle goes with everything from jeans to chinos to a proper suit. It may cost you $1,000, but it’s a good investment.

6. If you’re slim and tall and young, wear pleated pants. They accentuate every flaw you have so don’t wear them if you have hips. Otherwise you’ll really like them.

7. I have a good packing system that looks mildly anal but it’s not. Jackets should be turned inside out to protect the shoulders, and ‘like’ things go together. Pants on the bottom, jackets on top. Socks and underwear get rolled.

8. You should be comfortable while traveling, but it isn’t an excuse to look like a slob. Just wear the oversize khakis or footwear that’s a size or two big on you. I made the mistake of wearing tight shoes on a plane and my ankles were the size of my thighs when I got off.

9. I’m a huge fan of tear sheets for inspiration. Tumblr is the best place to store files. You don’t even have to repost them. Just like them and you’ll have a catalogue of things that inspire and interest you. I like having a benchmark for remembering what I thought was cool when.

10. I don’t have an M.O. when it comes to tattoos. The real reason my skin is covered in ink is that I’m really white, so instead of worrying about looking pale I thought, “Why not cover it with tattoos?”

Comment: $1,000 belt? I don’t think so!

20 Rules of A Real Man
1. Don’t promise anything if you’re not sure you can keep your promise
2. Carry yourself modestly, with dignity, don’t be conceited
3. It’s important to remember the line between dignified politeness and insincere flattery
4. Don’t write emails, posts, or texts on impulse
5. Don’t pour your heart out to just anybody. Remember the saying: “my tongue is my enemy”!
6. Don’t be overzealous in your use of alcohol – you won’t prove anything to anyone, only compromise your health.
7. Don’t be too hasty trusting somebody you’ve just met.
8. Avoid lending money to friends. Money always spoils relationships.
9. Don’t tolerate rude or mocking jibes directed towards you. Take the high road. Walk away and you’ll always win.
10. If you can’t say anything good about a person, then also abstain from saying anything bad, even if you’re tempted.
11. Don’t dismiss advice that’s offered to you. It’s your decision to take it or leave it, but remember that good advice is hard to come by.
12. The strength of a real man is revealed in his unshakeable calmness, and not his passionate impulses.
13. Defend the reputation of a woman who trusts you, no matter who she is. Your heart belongs to her.
14. There are times in life when it’s necessary to quiet one’s heart in favor of one’s mind.
15. A secret divulged by you to at least one person ceases to be a secret.
16. In a debate, your words must be soft but your arguments hard. The goal is to persuade your adversary, not antagonize him.
17. The realization that you are wrong is one of the best lessons there is. It’s a great tool for self-improvement. The only way to never make a mistake is to never do anything.
18. When two people argue, they’re both at fault.
19. Nothing is worse than indecisiveness. It’s better to make a poor decision than to hesitate and doubt. Opportunities that slip away almost never come again.
20. He, who has no fear is more powerful than he, whom everyone fears.
Wishing you all the best, Terry
