Gentleman's friend – 23.10.07

He used to drive a Maserati, is a former journalist, wears his Prada trousers slim and is not averse to mystical experiences. No, it's not Astragal – it's OMA's loveable Rem Koolhaas! Astragal was treated to these and other insights when he settled down to read gentleman's style journal Fantastic Man. The magazine joins a slew of others that have eked out 'cool' points from the architectural profession. But unlike the other vulgar try-hards, Fantastic Man is well-suited to Astragal’s refined tastes. Alongside the piece on the Dutchman were features on 'Hosiery' – what colour socks should be worn for a funeral or court appearance – and photographs of 'Interesting Eveningwear for Outdoors'.
