Men of Style

Dallas men are already impeccably dressed for work. Dressing down is the new sartorial frontier. These 10 Dallas men show how it’s done. Take notes.
From model to stylist to Kim Dawson creative director, Jon Tutolo has been on both sides of the camera, and everywhere in between. Now photo art director at Neiman Marcus, his all-American, no-fuss look of dynamic separates by Michael Bastian, Todd Snyder, Mark McNairy and Saturdays Surf NYC is inspired less by runway, more by geographic, street-style voyeurism. There’s also a little casual influence of store owner/hotel founder/editor and all-around fashion impresario Milan Vukmirovic thrown in. The Ohio native came to Dallas to open the now-shuttered Haven in Victory Park. But his main hobby still happens to be redecorating his apartment, redecorating his apartment again, and then moving, so he can redecorate some more.
Kenzo with Supreme, Tom Ford with Rick Owens, Levi’s and Prada—Aaron Adamson deftly walks the line between classic style and urban influences. His wardrobe riffs on everything from old movies to street art and counterculture, such as U.K. drum and bass movement. A girl, a job, a U-Haul and a dream brought him here from Amarillo, and he’s bringing his brand of young utopianism to Dallas, acting as GM and COO of East Hampton Sandwich Company by daylight and DJing underground EDM, U.K. bass and house music when the sun goes down. Catch him in floral five-panel snapbacks and reflective brogues as he makes the cool kids dance at Zubar’s Trillwave Wednesdays, The Beauty Bar’s Glamorama Saturdays and Foundation Room’s after-parties.
When the boys on Friday Night Lights grow up, they become Justin Moon; just replace the pads with a little bit of understated prep in tailored fits via Viktor & Rolf, Theory and Gucci. The boyish grin and mischievous look in his eyes are still intact. This Longview native is a Calvin Klein suit-clad commercial real estate broker by day, an avid traveler by weekend (he was sporting a Cabo tan on this shoot) and a veteran of the Dallas arts charity circuit by night. He smells like Serge Lutens, he’s drinking a Maker’s Mark Old-Fashioned and he makes us all giggle like teenage cheerleaders—you can take the man out of his Levi’s, but he’s still the good-natured Texas boy with the infectious laugh.
