"This is my favorite outfit. The tie is a regular tie, but I tied it like that because I've seen it done that way in old English movies." [GQ]

"Even though the tie and the jacket are different colors, they're both striped, so I thought they looked right together. And I wore the vest and pants together because they're both shades of red."

Arlo Weiner is 8, and he dresses like a foppish Fauntleroy with more than a few magpie touches. Borrowing a cane from Grandma here, turning a sash belt from a bathrobe into a tie there, and digging out an old satchel of his dad's to use as a bookbag, Weiner clearly knows from peaked lapels and crushed velvet. He wears ascots. To school. The young Weiner took a few moments out of his busy day to narrate a selection of his best outfits for a slideshow for GQ.
