Peskowitz vs. Wooster: The Ultimate Street Style Showdown

Two of the most photographed guys in men's fashion on how to look Sartorialist-worthy, whether you're at Pitti or in Pittsburgh.

On the eve of another round of men’s fashion shows in Europe—a k a that biannual street style extravaganza where some stuff also happens on the runway—Josh and I invited the always well turned out Nick Wooster to join us for a chat. Our topic? How guys who aren’t accustomed to being shot by Tommy Ton can bring a street-style level of detail into their own wardrobe.

But first, a duel! (Hat-tip to our pal Jake Davis and the ghost of Sergio Leone.)

And be sure to check out Pesko’s Pics, Josh’s ever-updated photo diary of the most stylish people, places, and things he comes across in Florence, Milan, and Paris.

Special thanks to Ana, Sean, and the rest of the gang at Tiny’s for letting us shoot in their hugely awesome bar and restaurant. Go there, have a Michters, and tip Teddy well.

    Good stuff. Any idea what make/model Nick’s sunglasses are?

  2. Tyler Thoreson says:

    Michael Bastian for Gant.

  3. Jim says:

    I think we’re to the point in the fashion life cycle that pants cut above the ankle are just douchey.

  4. Kyle says:

    Thanks Tyler!

  5. Tyler Thoreson says:

    Are you sure that’s really the adjective you’re looking for?

  6. Jim says:

    Urban Dictionary: Douchey
    1. characteristic traits of a douchbag’s attire or life.
    1. I hate to be the one to break it to ya…but those pants are just douchey.
    I’m open to other adjectives though.

  7. James says:

    Great video, thank you sirs.
    Jim, to each his own, if you don’t like it then don’t wear it. For example, the thong panties you like to wear, I never would, but please feel free to do so! I’m not judging.

  8. James says:

    Ooops, I logged in and said it again.

  9. Allan says:

    Ahh, criticism. I think Tyler, Josh, and Nick have been in fashion long enough to know what works and what doesn’t. Style is all about what works for you.

  10. Tyler Thoreson says:

    I could be wrong, but when I think “douchey” I think models-and-bottles-loving bros in untucked striped shirts. To me that’s a different demo than fashion guys who like to show a little mankle. But hey, if you don’t like the look, that’s your prerogative.
