GQ has also been bitten by the Rolex bug, as Ted Stafford names the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Watch of the Week at GQ.com’s Style headquarters. His take:

“What do I love about this watch most (aside from the fact that Mark Sanchez makes it look so damn good on our September cover)? Its precision-brushed steel bracelet with that edgy green bezel. It’s straight up sophisticated luxury. Jets fan or not I say go for the green, folks.”

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Winner Hines Ward Gives All Accolades to Partner, Kym Johnson

Hines Thanked the Fans and Said He, “Owes It All to Kym.”

‘Hines Ward’ + ‘Kym Johnson’ Performing either the Foxtrot or the Cha Cha Cha

Previously recognized by the public as the fun-loving Wide Receiver for the Pittsburg Steelers, Hines Ward adds a new trophy to his mantle, and gains a sizable new fan-base with his Season 12 victory on ‘Dancing With The Stars‘. Partner, Kym Johnson was praised through a teary eyed thank you from Hines Ward just as their Season 12 ‘Dancing With The Stars’ win was announced.

After sustaining an intense neck injury just two weeks prior to the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season Finale, the Australian Ballroom Dancer (since the age of 3!), Model and Television Actress, Kym Johnson inspired athlete Hines Ward by returning to rehearsals immediately after her release from the Hospital.

After the physical strength and psychological determination of Johnson brought the pair back to the dance floor with a renewed sense of motivation, the two hard-working and lovable athletes went on to receive perfect scores for their performances. This brought tears to the eyes of Ward, which effectively had both Kym Johnson and unusually emotional Judge Carrie Ann Inaba to small bursts of water-works in reaction to his sincere delivery.

“We’ve had some great footballers on `Dancing With the Stars,’ but I don’t think any compare with

Hines Ward,” head judge Len Goodman said during the season finale.

KYM JOHNSON, HINES WARD - ABC's 'Dancing With The Stars'

Hines Ward follows several other Professional Athletes which competed on the adored ABC Sitcom, including legendary Boxer Sugar Ray Leonard, Pro Wrestler Chris Jericho and NFL star Emmitt Smith. ‘Dancing With The Stars’ has evolved into much more than a Reality Show, but a true testament to physical endurance and the ability to perform exceptionally under pressure and often times, in pain.

Ward, a Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and former Super Bowl most valuable player, credits his professional dance partner, Kym Johnson, with their dance victory. He plans to keep his new mirrorball right next to his Super Bowl trophy.

From ‘OK Magazine’:

After Hines and Kym performed the samba and he ran over to kiss his mom, perhaps that was an indication of the stellar night to come. Before earning a perfect 10, Carrie Ann Inaba said, “You learned how to lead in the dancing and you lead you partner out of an injury.” Len Goodman added, “Dance is the product, what is so appealing about you is the packaging.”

Masculine Monday: Five Fashion Essentials for Men This Summer

Happy Masculine Monday!

Hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend, and is thus far enjoying their Monday. That said, let’s get things moving with our extra special Masculine Monday…

FIVE FASHION ESSENTIALS FOR MEN THIS SUMMER

With Spring nearly over and Summer on the way, today seemed a perfect fit for providing our cherished readers with five fashion essentials for our modern men to sport in the warm weather.

Esquire Magazine Fashion Director Nick Sullivan is one of the most impressive fashion writers in the country, and shared his handsome face and professional style insights on a few specific male necessities for Summer Fashion in 2011.

Watch Nick Sullivan’s televised index of a few select fashion essentials that every stylish man should have this summer.

[— A Jewelry Jotting Notation:

“Nick Sullivan is a fan of ‘TV on the Radio’, which puts him at VIP status in my book.”Alexandra]

are going to snag a few of the essentials proposed by the great Nick Sullivan on Today, simply because they really are essentials, vitals even. These items will help you stay comfortable and stylish, even in the warmest summer months.

  • 1. THE UNLINED JACKET

The ultimate wardrobe skeleton key for men who want to formalize or ease from a day at the beach to an evening appropriate look is the awesomely unstructured double-breasted unlined jacket. Think of this key wardrobe item as the male equivalent to women’s heels.

These thin, fitted jackets are a quick way to change the dynamic of an average outfit to a fashion forward, comfortable summer ensemble. The variety of unlined jackets available for men today include styles and color palettes to suit each fashion personality type, from the trend-setting fearless men to those who are looking for a more subtle appearance.

With bright colors, textures and vivid patterns leading the pack in this years most popular men’s fashion trends, a lot of you guys are going to have to get brave. And soon. The Esquire Fashion Blog provides the historic undertones and current influences that have let  to the uprising of fashion forward menswear here…

Esquire Style Presents: The American Revolution

The sixty products, places, people, and ideas that are transforming how we dress in 2011

Our top pick among the many brilliantly creative and classically detailed choices for favorite unlined jacket is a piece from the 2011 Men’s Clothing Line by Italian Designer, Luigi Bianchi.

For a stylishly revived summer wardrobe for sun-kissed men, the elegantly tapered jacket designs from the 2011 Men’s Clothing Line by Luigi Bianchi has our first vote. With their 100 year anniversary being celebrated, the jackets in this line are simple, yet incredibly precise in their construction. The result is a purposefully casual, classic appeal.

 Lubiam: 100 and Counting, or L.B.M. 1911

Founded in 1911 by Luigi Bianchi, Lubiam has been making some of the finest tailored tailored clothing in Italy for 100 years.  F/W 2011, and L.B.M. 1911 in general, is all about deconstructing the blazer as much as possible – it’s the definition of dressed down tailoring.

  • 2. THE NON-SNEAKER SUMMER SHOE

This really is an important one, and I’m glad that someone has finally acknowledged the need for men to have an additional footwear option during the heated months. We are so used to seeing the same flip flops and and alternating sneakers being worn by men in the Summer, it’s almost as if another option hadn’t even been available until now. Men of 2011, ditch those Adidas kicks. Your footwear has officially received an upgrade, a footwear facelift if you will.

The pair of suede summer shoes which Nick Sullivan features on his clip with the Today Show is a perfect example of how to move on from flip flops and tennis shoes in the best way possible. I’m nearly envious of men at this point, as these suede hybrids between a sneaker and a dress shoe provide the overdue option for men’s footwear in Summer.

Grabbing a pair of these off-duty, comfortable yet trendy shoes should be a main priority for men this year. Not only are these styles going to remain popular, but two toned, more embellished variations will be seeping into the fall fashions, as well!

We love the Men’s Authentic Original Suede Boat Shoe from www.sperrytopsider.com.

  • 3. THE PERFECT SHAVE

Growing rapidly in popularity is the high-quality, old-fashioned barber shop close shave. Particularly valuable in the Summer months, when the sun, sweat and heat can cause breakouts and other skin irritations, a perfectly smooth shave will be essential.

For a fun how-to guide on the 4 vital steps to achieving complete facial hair removal, watch this video by Esquire:

How To Shave Your Face  by Esquire

Remember These Simple Steps, and The Perfect Shave is just within reach …

1. Prepare (Use Pre-Shave Oil to Prepare)

2. Lather (Visit http://www.theartofshaving.com/ for old fashioned shaving cream, oil, etc)

3. Shave (See video for instructions on when to shave with the grain or against)

4. Moisturize!

finito. 😉


  • 4. SHADES MAKING A STATEMENT

Just like Bob Dylan and Mick Jagger, decide that you’re going to make a serious statement. With your shades. This Summer is demanding all men to take a fashion leap with their choice of eyewear.

No more classic stand-by aviators, boys. It’s time to say something. With your eyes. Through what’s covering them, literally. Celebrity-Inspired statement sunglasses are a must have for men in 2011.

Look into some of the great sunglasses of history, like the ones above being worn by Hunter S. Thompson. You will have to find a style that works with the shape of your face, as well as your fashion sense and risk-level preferences.

If this is your first dare-devil approach to statement sunglasses, it’s better to be rational when choosing your shades. Pick up a pair that make themselves known, but that aren’t so loud they wind up staying heated in your glove box through September because you couldn’t quite bring yourself to wear them in public.

  • 5. An Old-Fashioned Timepiece

The Fashion Director of Esquire, Nick Sullivan has taken a particularly heightened interest in the new annual trade show of all things jewelry and watch related, BaselWorld.

* * * * An old-fashioned gentlemanly timepiece is a necessity * * * *

In several feature articles,he intricately highlights the timepieces displayed at the Basel Watch Show to be powering a strong return of gentleman’s timepieces and wristwatch designs into modern men’s fashion. The revealed collections at Basel-world greatly occupied a fluidly recognized vintage feel. Thus far, aviation-inspired and early 20th century designs have been creating a strong and positive impact on men’s fashion.

The watches that are growing in nostalgia-fueled popularity in the revealed collections at BaselWorld embody noticeably narrower straps with larger round faces. These WW1-inspired timepieces, which include several pocket watches, are described by Sullivan as a rediscovering a certain nostalgia for the first third of the 20th century.

The dressy, yet restrained appearance of the early-20th century inspired wristwatches is expected to lead the way in fashionable watch wear for men. Popularity of timepieces that carry a piece of nostalgia or sentiment with them are on the rise. Don’t forget this one very crucial element to your look this summer.

Well…  Men, and all those who’d like to surprise the men you love with some fashion affection, you’re all set!  Have a wonderful evening.
