Okay, first you might ask, "Who the heck is Nick Wooster?"
He's been labelled the 'king of street style', a 'one-man brand' and 'the alpha male of American street style'. Nick Wooster is a retailer-turned-fashion-advisor and is now a free agent. He's worked in retail since he was sixteen before the calling of fashion took over.
In the recent years, he's gained a lot of fans and admirers, most of whom, were men who wants a step up to their style. Nick Wooster first got the attention of his followers, from his street fashion adventures. Walking in the streets of Manhattan in his signature tailored coats and owning up to it. We're talking about twenty-somethings here, getting their style tips from someone old enough to be their dad.
To Nick Wooster, style seems to come out naturally. He's always had an eye for the aesthetic even in his teens. He even claimed that a suit with a Prince of Wales check was what he's asked his mom a the age of five. These days, the man can easily be identified with his tailored jackets, handlebar mustache and his colorful tattoo sleeves.
Nick shared with Kurt Soller of Esquire when he first started getting tattoos. It was one of those days in Miami, a day for a pair of white Dries Van Noten sailor pants. Being Nick Wooster, he simply thought it would be great if he could pair it off with a nice sailor tattoo as well. He went home with a tattoo of a dagger through the heart, with "MOM" written on it.
Nick was thirty-nine when he started the three-quarter sleeve on his left arm. He's just glad that it wasn't a choice made during his younger years, otherwise he wouldn't have had the great work that he does currently.
Instead of having a gazillion cosmetic surgeries in a sorry attempt to look at least 20 years younger, Wooster does it with fashion, and the results speak for themselves. Nick Wooster truly is an inspiration for those of us who are afraid that getting older means losing our cool.
