1. Wrinkles Look Good on a Man. So Go for Linen
How to pull it off:
1. The cool new breed of linen suit is darker, dressier, and easier to wear. Avoid that fusty and very blah beige color.
2. Don't be afraid of a few wrinkles—they're what give linen its attitudinal appeal. 3. Despite its casual rep, a linen suit can stand up to dressy accessories. Finish it off with a pocket square and a formal watch.
Those Bratty Facebook Twins? This Man Birthed Them Both
Name: Armie Hammer, 24
How you know him: Played the six-foot-five litigious twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss in The Social Network.
First audition: A Shake 'N Bake commercial.
On growing up in the Cayman Islands: "It doesn't suck."
Childhood nickname: "Baking Soda Boy. Try going to junior high with the name Armie Hammer. It's open season."
How the name-calling stopped: "I punched a kid in the face. I took it for two years! I tried perseverance…" How he started acting: "I saw Home Alone. I was 11 or 12, and I had a dream that I was Macaulay Culkin." Unlikely Hollywood challenge: His height. "I've lost out on jobs because I'm six foot five."
Life since The Social Network: "People on the street yell at me, Where's your twin! It's funny the first time."
On meeting the real-life Winklevoss twins: "Tyler walked up to me and said, 'Dude, I do not own a pair of earmuffs.'" —Mickey Rapkin
