Recent Grad Quickly Becomes Best Dressed Man in America
Written by Bwog Staff
Esquire magazine judges and some people on the internet agree: recent Columbia grad Dan Trepanier, CC ’09, is the “Best Dressed Real Man in America” for 2009. The former basketball team guard was awarded the title on this morning’s Today show, and will receive such goodies as “a $10,000 wardrobe from Kenneth Cole and Esquire, a one-year supply of Nivea for Men products, [and] an IWC watch.” Trepanier made it to the final as the internet voters’ “fan favorite.”
“Dan’s style is instantly recognizable as American,” Esquire fashion director Nick Sullivan told, um, Esquire, “but it’s modern and individual and it avoids the more predictable preppy combinations.” Trepanier also dispenses fashion advice over at his blog, which we really do recommend to anyone who enjoys the fine arts of preppiness.
