Cool Guys Talk Fashion

Special Offer

The man: Sean Avery, left wing for the New York Rangers
The woman: Lauryn Flynn, director of celebrity services at Calvin Klein (and Sean's best friend)
Trend tested: The sack dress, à la Calvin Klein

ON THE TREND: "This dress looks comfy, and if I were a woman, I'd probably wear it. It's not traditionally sexy since it doesn't show curves, but it does leave something to the imagination. It's also not Lauryn's style — which is early-'90s Seattle grunge — but it totally works with her signature battered biker boots. They always bring her into her expensive-tomboy comfort zone. I think shoes make an outfit."

ON SPENDING: "Blow it on a smart jacket. And accessories can always make an average — or even a very cheap — outfit look striking. I'm strangely fascinated with women who wear top-to-toe labels. So few can do it tastefully. Of course, some say I'm not in touch with reality: I sleep in Tom Ford pajamas!"

DREAM WARDROBE: "Alexander McQueen jeans — skinny ones are always hot — a Rick Owens leather jacket, a white T-shirt, Calvin Klein underwear, Chanel flats, and an oversize Gucci bag. Go crazy when it comes to the bag! I'm not a label whore, but I love seeing people looking good."

NIGHTMARE WARDROBE: "I despise wedges! No matter how gorgeous a woman is or what else she's wearing, if she adds wedges, it ruins her whole look. Why would you want to make your feet look blocky? Very unattractive. What makes this worse: high-waist jeans. Never, please."


  • Spend big on shoes, bags, and jackets.
  • Don't try too hard to dress for guys; it shows a lack of confidence.
  • Don't dress in all designer duds — just look polished.
  • Single guys need fashion help, too.
