The Creators of NYC: Menswear Icon Nick Wooster

Josh Wool spent a decade as an executive chef, opening restaurants across the south. But all that changed in 2010, when the carpal tunnel in his hands meant he could no longer work. To keep from going stir crazy, he picked up a camera and found his next calling. Two years, thousands of portraits, and a move to New York later, Wool is documenting the people who inspire him on a daily basis. Welcome to Creators of NYC.

Nickelson Wooster

Nickelson Wooster is a veritable master of all things sartorial. He’s been called the “alpha male of American street style” by GQ and has redefined the norm for modern masculine fashion through his work at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Calvin Klein — and now JC Penney. His personal brand, a kind of of rugged style meets elegance, has shaped the way men dress all over the world. We caught up with the Kansas native at Bobo, one of his favorite West Village restaurants.

Can you describe what inspires your style?

Getting dressed for me is like a window to my soul. I grew up in the 60s and 70s when men were required to wear a suit, shirt, and tie every day to be taken seriously. I was at the tail end of that generation, and it had a significant impact on me. I always favor being overdressed –- if I’m not wearing a suit, I’m wearing a jacket.

  1. Syria: We Are Removing TroopsThe Syrian government said on Tuesday that it has begun to remove troops as the United Nations’ deadline for a ceasefire draws closer—but activists said 12 people had been killed by government forces early Tuesday. 
  2. Tulsa Suspects Confess: Police say the two men arrested in connection with the shooting spree in Tulsa, Okla., have confessed. Alvin Watts, 32, confessed to shooting two people, and Jake England, 19, confessed to shooting three. Three of the victims died and two were seriously injured. All were black, and authorities are still investigating whether the crime was racially motivated.
  3. Radical Cleric Can Be Extradited to U.S.The radical cleric Abu Hamza may soon be on his way to the United States, along with four other men, now that the European court of human rights has ruled their rights won’t be violated by extradition. In 2006 Hamza was sentenced to seven years in prison for inciting hatred at his north London mosque, and he’s also accused of attempting to set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon in 1999. 
  4. At Least 15 Killed in Afghan Blasts: At least 15 people were killed by early-morning suicide bombings in Afghanistan, officials say. Eight civilians and three policemen were killed by a blast at a local government office in Herat, while another four policemen were killed by three suicide bombers at a police compound in southern Helmand province. 
  5. MD Teacher Trio Claims Winning Ticket: Three teachers from Maryland came forward to claim their share of the record-shattering Mega Millions jackpot, the state announced Tuesday. The teachers pooled $20 each to buy 60 tickets at various Maryland locations, and will each have $35 million wired to their bank accounts within the next 10 days.

This cluster of nude supermodels is one of many photographs from iconic photographer Herb Ritts’s new L.A. Style exhibition at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

Madonna on being “Herbified”:

It goes a little something like this: He talks you into going to the beach. Then, he talks you into taking off your clothes. He talks you into dancing and frolicking in the sand like an idiot. He talks you into getting into the freezing cold ocean, and before you know it, you have a sunburn and you’re freezing your ass off and you’re sure you’ve just made a huge fool out of yourself.
