The other day, I stumbled upon Nerd Boyfriend and, of course, I loved it. I do, after all, have a nerd boyfriend of my own. I posted the link to it on my friend's wall, and less than an hour, the Boyf commented on it. He said, and I quote, "Buy me everything Paul Newman is wearing."
Boom. Perfect. I had just finished buying the Boyf four small-ish presents that will help compose his Christmas, but I still needed one good, medium-sized present to round it out and I was stumped. Here was the perfect opportunity. I would buy the Boyf something Newman-esque.
I started out with my old pal, Google image-search, just to round up ideas. I discovered a few things.
1) Paul Newman was a lot more attractive than all his salad dressing labels lead me to believe.
2) Paul Newman and his wife were adorable. I am now obsessed. My profile picture right now is a picture of them in their kitchen. He is standing over a frying pan and she is kissing a small dog. I want that to be my life. Guys, why isn't that my life? Someone tell me how to make that happen.
3) Um. Paul Newman, while being a knockout and all, kind of wore suits and oxfords and blazers a lot. Just like every other guy at the time. What am I supposed to buy the Boyf to make him look definitively like Paul Newman? A really nice blazer? A nice cardigan, as the Sartorialist recommended? Some button-downs? New shoes? A tie?
What do you guys think? Am I missing something? What about his outfits makes him definitively Paul Newman? I need some second, third, and fourth opinions!
