Date Night with Alex Grant: Midnight In Paris

And we’re back! After several months of working on some other projects and being busy adults (Skip is the real adult, I’m just faking), we’re back with a special Date Night for you all. Midnight in Paris is most likely my favorite film of the year. Although I have yet to see the Muppets, so I’ll get back to you on that. Woody Allen charms yet again with an impeccable script and an amazing cast. I immediately fell in love with the small but charming character Gabrielle, whom French actress Léa Seydoux plays. I won’t give the plot away too much, but her role is quiet important in the end. What really makes this Date Night special is that we have a very special guest, and friend, Gabe Alonso of The History of My World and Pleats Are For Lovers fame. Gabe is a music genius and has created a fitting playlist for us. Be sure to head over and download it. And of course, don’t miss Skip’s look for Owen Wilson’s character Gil over at Alexander Grant! He’s even included a link to a literary study guide for you so you can impress your date.

Date Night with Alex Grant: Big

For this Date Night, Skip asked for a movie from the 80s and I figured, who doesn’t enjoy Big! Sometimes you just need to let your inner kid out and be more fun, especially on a date with someone you like. Head over to Alex Grant to see Skip’s look of Josh as a kid.

Date Night with Alex Grant: The Talented Mr. Ripley


The Talented Mr. Ripley is certainly a favorite for the amazing acting and wardrobe. It’s constantly cited as a source of sartorial inspiration. Obviously, this makes it a perfect addition to the Date Night Series. I love everything Gwyneth Paltrow wears as Marge Sherwood in the film. She is elegant and classy, but cool and relaxed at the same time. The perfect balance for a woman. Check out Skip’s look here.

Date Nate with Alex Grant: The Social Network

After a nice spring vacation, Skip of Alex Grant and I are back with our Date Night series! Being a Harvard man himself, Skip suggested we do The Social Network. Here is Mark’s slighted ex-girlfriend Erica Albright’s typical look. I updated it a little to make it more seasonless with a lighter weight jacket, but all in all it’s the perfect bookish look for a date at a low lit pub or a cafe. Head over to Alex Grant to see Skip’s look for Mark Zuckerberg.

Date Night with Alex Grant: Groundhog Day

Part two of this week’s Date Night with Alex Grant: Groundhog Day. The always lovely Andi McDowell as Rita from Groundhog Day. Keep in mind, this movie was made in 1991 so I wouldn’t necessarily recommend wearing the silk vests and billowy blouses that she wears in the film. But you can’t go wrong with a barn coat like the one she wears in this shot. And replace the oversize puff blouse with a men’s shirt. It will be cut straighter and will be more comfortable than any of your women’s shirt. I recently bought a men’s Freeman’s Sporting Club white button front shirt in their XS and I have barely taken it off.
