Gossip Girl‘s bad boy Chuck Bass, original named Ed Westwick, has joined fashion industry.
Blame it on our conflicts abroad or just a collective return to basics—whatever the case, the multipocketed fatigue jacket has made a serious resurgence this year, thanks in no small part to brands like Barbour and Belstaff. We happen to dig this fitted version from the Gap in chocolate brown, which is a nice variation from black, and a little less obvious.
Jacket, $348, by Gap. Shirt, $245, and tie, $125, by Rag & Bone. Pants, $760, by Prada. Boots, $250, by Aldo.
Ed has taken part in a campaign for K-Swiss and was on many fashion parties including the Met Costume Institute Gala.
Not your typical detective-minded khaki raincoat. This darker, relaxed-fitting trench is the kind of jacket you don’t need to expend any effort breaking in. Think of it as your coat for fall, or spring, or (given currently insane climate patterns) even a cool day in summer—it doesn’t require a cloud in the sky. Look for similar versions by Rogues Gallery, H&M, Uniqlo, and Marc Jacobs. Trench, $735; shirt, $245; tie, $125; pants, $350; and boots, $650: all by Rag & Bone.

Now the 21-year-old British actor poses for GQ magazine’s annual fall fashion spread. He revealed timeless style and construction while modeling fall’s latest fashion in the July 2009 issue of GQ magazine
There is, in fact, a real Fair Isle (population seventy), off the coast of Scotland. And in addition to herding sheep and catching fish, the locals make beautiful, intricately patterned sweaters. Like tweed jackets, they’re made to withstand the cold, damp Scottish climate. And now plenty of other folks (like those at Burberry) make them, in subtler, more muted—some might even say modern—styles.
Sweater, $750, by Burberry Prorsum.
In the magazine issue, Ed is suitably described as “Jude Law crossed with a pre-psychotropic-meltdown Joaquin Phoenix.”
Before Michael Jordan told us which kicks to buy, rowers in the English city of Henley-on-Thames told Brits which shirts to wear. This long-sleeve tee was popularized in the mid–nineteenth century as the traditional uniform of Henley’s rowers. It’s since become a go-to layer for fall, but we like it worn on its own with a pair of jeans, as an alternative to a V-neck sweater.
Henley, $445, and jeans, $350, by Dolce & Gabbana. Belt by Bill Adler. Necklace by Rogues Gallery.
Forget John Gotti’s sprawling lapels and linebacker-size shoulder pads. The current incarnation of the double-breasted suit leans toward a fitted—not boxy—cut, meaning you don’t have to pretend you’re a mobster or a tycoon to wear one. A smart choice for the dapper professional looking to step out from the single-breasted masses.
Suit, $1,395, by Emporio Armani. Shirt, $275, by Tim Hamilton. Tie, $75, by Fred Perry. Shoes, $1,550, by Tom Ford. Pocket square by Neil Barrett.
