I’ve been thinking about men’s style quite a bit lately. Not men’s fashion, but style. There is plenty of fashion available. But truthfully there is very little style on display. I think many men are confused and don’t want to bother. When I see a stylish man in real life — particularly one who doesn’t work in fashion — I’m always taken aback.
Musician Adam Cohen has surprising style. (For those who haven’t heard, Leonard Cohen had a son about 40 years ago named Adam. He makes music. Beautiful music.) Just as his songs have an inherent Cohen sound, it seems there is also a style gene tucked inside the family DNA.

Leonard’s “flawless style” is well-documented. In earlier photos, you see him at ease in his Fedora hat, slouchy button down shirts, a scarf and a black overcoat. Wearing a crinkled forehead and a cigarette in his hand, why you can just hear him growling, “When they said repent, I wonder what they meant.”
My French is terrible, but I think this recent spread in Elle Quebec says something to the effect of “Adam Cohen smolders while looking handsome and stylish, without even trying!”

Who knows. I’m all about menswear right now. More to come. Including concert tickets!
Later this month Adam Cohen heads out on a Canadian tour with stops in Vancouver, Calgary, Quebec and Toronto. The F-list is giving readers a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Toronto October 25th date.
Details to come!
