Snapshots of some stylish men in Greenwich

Why it works: Leave it to the Mitchell’s to inject a little times-gone-by glamour into the evening. Jack and Scott Mitchell looked primed and ready for the premiere of Gone with the Wind, and Scott’s addition of the white tie and fringe scarf perfectly completed the look.
Why it works: When all else fails find your most colorful, artful, jungle inspired jacket and throw it on. One thing will be certain, everyone will know you’re there for a good time. Geoffrey Nichols gets star points for proudly wearing this jacket filled with giraffes, monkeys, lions and a host of botanical greenery.
Why it works: Both of these gentlemen wore creamy white jackets to this black tie affair, but Michael Kovner kept it old-school with a one button tux, black vest and matching bowtie. Jean Doyen de Montaillou took a different approach, ditching the vest and opting for a two-button tux, with hankie and patterned bowtie. Who wore it best? We think they both get kudos for this one.
Why it works: We all know Thom Filicia for his modern, yet classically inspired interiors. Having been exposed to the world of home design for most of his life, it’s no wonder his personal style is equally brilliant. By pairing his red pants with a chambray-esque style jacket and wide striped tie, he clearly owns this look.

The Blues Brothers
Why it works: Marty Gregge, Ron Silverman and Howard Greenberg show off their classic but relaxed style. We’re loving the “off with the tie” look. Marty’s and Ron’s over the shoulder sweater adds to the preppy affect and even Howard, in a double-breasted jacket with a pocket square, manages to look coolly undone.

Why it works: This unidentified super hero already knows that you’re always in fashion with an Hermes bag in hand. We have no doubt that twenty or so years from now, he too will be included as one of the dapper gentleman on these pages. He’s already got the layering look down and obviously understands the importance of great footwear. Onward and upward little guy.
Why it works: What’s more appropriate than New York Yankee Mark Teixeira (left) in pinstripes? He and fellow fashionable friend Bruce Tobin are looking svelte in their tone-on tone pinstriped navy suits.
The Gentlemen’s Club
Why it works: This dapper group hardly needs an introduction, as they are like the elder statesmen of Greenwich. One thing is for sure, with as many events as Chuck Royce, Malcolm Pray and Jack Moffly have to attend, they alwyas show up in style.
