If only -- only -- there could be a ladies' version of Mr. Porter -- the online retail destination for men's style. This site is a find. A man can (easily, unquestionably, there's no excuse) dress well with this site at his fingertips. So many classic looks, and the pieces to create the look collected from who knows where all ready for purchase, not from 4 different shops, but from Mr. Porter.
You must, must visit the "essentials" and "style icons" links in the "Style Help" section. Recent history's most classic, well-dressed men are featured here. Their style is timeless, and pieces are presented that assemble the look today. It's like living inside Oceans' Eleven: great looks and clever conversation. A little money helps, but it's lovely to look around.
