Jared Flint | Street Style

This is Jared Flint.  He’s a Big Dude on the Gilt Scene (in other words I don’t know his official title).  First time I ever saw him he was having a cigarette lit by Nick Wooster…something out of movie, you know?  I also appreciate his style, and there aren’t enough photos of him on the Internet…so here I go, doing my part of society.

Happy Friday, Happy Halloween….be safe, but beyond that, anything goes!

Gilt: GiltMANual

PERSONALIZED STATIONARY

By Ted Harrington

I was asked by a friend at Gilt to write a piece on why any man with aspirations of being stylish needs engraved stationery…

Why? Because the details matter. One detail a man of style can’t do without is manners, and nothing says “I give many f–ks” like a handwritten note on personal stationery. This is true whether you’re congratulating a friend on his recent promotion; sending a thank-you for a long, boozy lunch; or offering an apology for making a scene during that long, boozy lunch…

Paper.
I like a medium-thickness card of 130 or 140 lbs. — either white or off-white. Forget borders or edging. Use an envelope with a V-flap. Square flaps are mostly used for business. Leave the address off of the envelope and you can use it for both work and personal correspondence.  And for the half-sheet notes, use a 70 or 80-lb. text weight. Got it? Good.

Process.
Forget letterpress, which is retro, trendy, and a bit twee for my taste. Stick with engraving. It’s right for dudes. Your name etched…
