When I’m invited to one of the many black tie galas here in NYC, my go-to resource for the most exquisite evening sets is without question M. de Phocas.

Their unique style and taste make me one of their most devout fans—and diamonds, rubies, and sapphires certainly have a way of bringing out my regal side! So when I’m attending a major event at the Temple of Dendur or some other equally happening bash, my friends at M. de Phocas are my first stop to ensure that I’m making an appropriate statement.

For this year’s “FARE” gala I’m sporting a Tom Ford magenta silk ottoman cloth dinner jacket and black silk faille bow tie, diamond and ruby evening set by M. de Phocas, Tom Ford era tuxedo shirt and pants, black patent opera pump, and my fragrance is Creed Imperial Milessime.

  1. I love that M. de Phocas diamond and ruby set!!!!!!


  2. Did you need to have a bodyguard?? Or was that strong and brave Mr. McBee enough??

    Cufflinks are easier to hide than necklaces and earrings……….those are divine!!! Not so much the beautiful “studs”! (maybe a well-placed ascot???)

    I will now go to that website; and try to get into some trouble!!

    Divine post!!

    Could you hear my mouth and jaw drop here in California!
    YOU look DASHING!!I mean DASHING!!ADORE that color jacket………..

  4. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Dean,

    These young men at M. de Phocas are doing the most marvelous things!



  5. James Andrew says:

    My Darling Penny,

    I certainly did not travel to the MET on the subway 😉

    Have a look at the pansies – just divine!

    Love and Light


  6. James Andrew says:

    My Dear La Contessa,

    I was feeling rather royal ,almost papal in this marvelous mix of magenta and ruby.



  7. Matt says:

    Just one word – STUNNING !
    That M De Phocas set is to die for and I bet you were the Beau of the Ball in that mix of magenta & ruby – kudos Mr Andrew.

  8. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Matt,


    I did kind of feel that I was the “Beau of the Ball” in a sea of black tuxedos – I certainly did stand out.

    Cheers and Many Thanks for your tremendous support and feedback!


  9. Gemma Tubbrit says:

    I bet you certainly stood out from the crowd. I think gents with such impressive gemstone cufflinks stand out SO much more than a sea of women with diamond rings. I am visualising you in ‘a sea of black tuxedos’.

  10. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Gemma Tubbrit,

    I certainly did stand out in “a sea of black tuxedos”.

    Why should women have all the fun and get to wear a different dress/gown for every party?


    Some impressive gemstone cuff links and evening sets would certainly raise the level of a black tuxedo to that of the sublime!

    Cheers and Best!
