When John Hodgman says to put him on a fashion blog, you do it. Just look a that shirt—he’s clearly a fashion icon.

Here he is modeling a Dark Crystal trading card pack as a pocket square. I’m sure this will spark a hot new trend.

Check out his Instagram post below.

Clearly, Doctor Who missed a golden opportunity here. Picture David Tennant or Peter Capaldi wearing this fine TARDIS kilt.

After all, proper ventilation and unrestricted movement would definitely be advantages in the Doctor’s adventures through time and space.

Design studio Nervous System is giving professionals a way to fend off boredom in the boardroom with their Kinematics 3D printed ties.

The product features interlocking pieces printed from nylon and hinged to move fluidly, giving wearers something to fiddle with while “eight different bosses drone on about mission statements”.

Gaultier-comic-book-jacket

Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier’s vintage line of clothing includes this comic print ‘JPG’ jacket with long sleeves, peaked lapels, a double breasted front fastening and side slit pockets. It’s also $800.

Part of me thinks its cool that designers are doing stuff like this but, on the other hand, it could be a sign that superheroes have jumped the shark.

dapper star tours

I find myself bummed and shocked that I didn’t know Dapper Day at Disneyland was a thing, but I know now and knowing is half the battle! If you’re like me and didn’t know about this semiannual gathering of sophisticated and stylish fashion fans, you’ll enjoy this.

There are so many gorgeous and imaginative outfits! From what I can tell, attendees aren’t the only ones who dress up either. While Dapper Day isn’t an official Disney event, it looks like Mickey got into the swing of things along with some other cast members over the weekend.

A certain Doctor has already established that bow ties are cool. These aluminum variants have to be up there as the coolest. Damico has created a range of 11 aluminum bow ties that are currently fully funded on Kickstarter. Still, there is a little time left to get one for shipment in September.

true wetsuits

Yes, that is a guy getting out of the water in a business suit—but don’t worry about him. He hasn’t snapped under the pressure of his demanding job. Quicksilver Japan’s “True Wetsuits” include a jacket, pants, and tie made with two-millimeter super high-stretch jersey Neoprene and a shirt made from Drylight which is a special fabric made in conjunction with 3M.

You can choose a black suit, blue suit, or tuxedo suit if you want to be a super fancy surfer. Not sure how your boss or other surfers will feel about your look, but you just keep being you on the beach or in the boardroom.

jen and joshua wedding 1

Writing about geeky weddings is always fun, but getting to write about a geeky wedding in which a friend of yours is the bride? That’s awesome.

If you know just how big a Star Wars fan Jennifer is, then it’s no surprise that she would go all out for her wedding. From the cake toppers to the table cards and everything in between, there’s a lot of Star Wars going on. But the amazing thing is how they managed to make everything so beautiful and elegant.

As Jennifer told Green Wedding Shoes:

“From the moment we started planning, my now-husband and I decided that we wanted our wedding to be intimate, fun, and a reflection of who we are as a couple. In terms of the details and decor, we tried to create an atmosphere that was whimsical, romantic, and modern. Since I’m a lifelong Star Wars fan, I knew I had to incorporate my fandom into some of the wedding details. The cherry on top for both of us was getting Stormtroopers from the 501st Legion to be a part of the wedding. It was an absolute dream come true!”
