Be Cool Man

I had a lovely brunch date today with everyone’s favorite comedic Canadian interior designer, Tommy Smythe.  Afterward, we perused the vintage offerings at the Garage Flea Market where we found a lot of amazing items that would have perfect for a bachelor pad project.  Maybe that’s the reason I felt like posting a little more for the boys.  Who am I kidding, I’m sure the ladies enjoy these posts just as much as the men.  You’re all welcome.

    Gosh, at first, I thought you’d had lunch with Ralph Lauren ! And you’re right about women (of any age) enjoying men’s posts as much as they do !

    We men and boys enjoyed your musing today! Cars are forever on our minds, and we need a little fashion sense seen thru your eyes!

    Heather, you should start a men’s style blog (can you squeeze that in?)! Fantastic images! Classic, masculine clothing, accessories, cars, architecture and interiors. You’re beating the boy bloggers at their own game.

    Delightful post ! Better than a cup of coffee on this brisk Monday morning.

    SoJo – the first gentleman is Ralph Lauren so I assume the sunglasses are either RL or vintage. Good luck!

    Heather yes thank you!

    I would probably fall in love with a man who has a bookshelf in his closet! As well as one with that collection of Vuitton Trunks. I am really not shallow, just sayin this kind of guy obviously has great taste and loves to read!

    Man, they have it so simple, don’t they? A sportscar and a few classic pieces and you are swoon worthy!

    Lucky you to have had lunch with the brilliant Tommy Smythe. His intelligent humour reminds me of the wit of Noel Coward. This is only rivalled by his skilled approach to design. We in Canada love Tommy! Great post, and continue to channel your inner male. I tend to have a more masculine approach to my decor and I found a few inspiring images. Thanks:)

    wow everytime I read your blog, I just really want to pick up a cigarette. I guess that’s my idea of cool.
