As one might imagine, it’s a thrill and an honor to be featured fairly regularly in Italy’s most prestigious newspaper, and I must say I’m particularly pleased with Gian Luigi Paracchini’s fabulous piece in Corriere Della Sera’s December issue of Style Magazine!

The question posed: am I the technological reincarnation of the Great Gatsby…has me totally tickled, and the bit about being an “elegant narcissus” blogger is pretty well on target. This little piece is so fun it makes me feel like my head is going to explode! Thank You Corriere Della Sera for your humor and accolades.

    Congratulations. I agree with this acknowledgement.

    I notice that your picture is bigger than Cary Grant. You are now conquering Europ, don’t forget France!

  6. Dean says:

    James, nothing makes us higher, and happier, than some good, old fashioned publicity!

    La Publicite’, la publicite’ !!!

    Congrats again to you!


  7. […] Although James had always been interested in clothing, the idea for his aptly-named blog came to him through the observations of others about what he made a point to do daily – choosing to dress stylishly, even at the gym! Other men in his classes as well as his trainers would ask “Jimmy, what are you wearing today?” One day, James was wearing a black and white leather motorcycle jacket and his boxing trainer told him ” James, you have such great style you must start a blog!” Initially, he didn’t think too much of it, but it did seem like a fun idea. When the domain http://www.whatisjameswearing.com was available, he decided to start his very own blog on July 31, 2008, which is exactly 5 years ago. After just a short while, Elle Décor in Britain picked it up and called James possibly their favorite blogger of all time.
