“There are no absolutes. For every rule there is, it’s made to be broken and if you have style you can wear anything you want.” – Nick Wooster

That’s easy for ‘The Woost’ to say. This fashion week fixture + previous Men’s Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman embodies impeccable taste.

The result is always an undeniably cool look, which frankly would leave the average person walking around looking like a fool.
