Scott Disick, style icon, says American style is “childish”

I had the chance to read Scott Disick’s Men’s Fitness interview. He’s on the cover in a t-shirt, thankfully, and never bares his chicken chest inside. The story is thin and superficial, just like Scott, and contains his deep as a puddle explanations for why he’s always dressed up like a real life stock character version of Richie Rich. It’s all about Scott being more “mature” than the rest of us peons who want to feel comfortable and occasionally wear our workout gear outside the gym. You can picture him sneering while he says this.

His personal style is as classic as the vintage Jaguar he drives around the streets of Manhattan. “I dress more mature than most,” he says, unapologetically. In fact, he seems unnerved by young America’s sartorial nonchalance and love of casual clothing (“it looks rather un-put together and childish.”) Disick strives for a more “elegant” (yes, his word), confidence boosting appearance. And much to the chagrin of a lot of his haters, he achieves it.

“There’s not much to say about a guy who walks into a room wearing a brand-new T-Shirt,” he says, “but there’s definitely something to compliment about a guy who walks in with a beautiful collared shirt with French cuffs and a perfectly tailored sports coat.”

[From Men's Fitness, print edition, May, 2011]

Like the Kardashians, who will market just about anything they can slap their name on, Scott is about to become a whole lot more ubiquitous. He’s putting out a line of skin care products, a fashion line, his own brand of hair product, a line of supplements and his “own tanning product called Monte Carlo.” Kourtney must be sick of paying for Scott’s cars and his tailored Tom Ford suits. That QuickTrim money only goes so far. I’m surprised he doesn’t have a cologne out. He could call it Spring’s Twilight.

    He is quite the dresser. But remind me again of what exactly he has done so that we need to be reading about him?

  2. CallieTrichid says:

    So says the dude wearing a t-shirt on the cover of a men’s magazine. And those fugnificent plaid shorts with bright gold moccasins.

  3. gobo says:

    His “style” is crass and over the top.

  4. Samigirl says:

    I actually really like the way he dresses. I much prefer a nicely groomed, tailored man to a guy who just throws on one of those god awful Ed Hardy/Affliction/Douchetastic bedazzled tshirts, jeans and flip flops. HOWEVER, having money and knowing how to dress does NOT give him a right to be an a**hole. Nor does it give Kourtney the right to wear that God AWFUL red lipstic. My friends that do drag look better than she does in that stuff. Uch.

  5. Rita says:

    He should be a contributing editor for the Goop. He’s that interesting.

    On another note, I’d love to see Tim Gunn put down some Kazoo smack on this glorified Pee Wee Herman.

  6. Quest says:

    Brin you took the words right out of my mouth.

    He is a wanna-be-business tycoon but he is not

  7. Dani says:

    Ah Scott, but it isn’t the clothes who make the man, it’s the man that makes the clothes. Big difference.

  8. OXA says:

    Scott Disick is churlish and clown like!

  9. KarenC22 says:

    The world has truly gone cuckoo when a dips**t like this barely-educated, effete, arrogant limelight seeker can lecture on the sartorial leanings of the American male!

    Go back to your comic books.

  10. TG says:

    I love him on the show. He always says the funniest things. I also love his style. I think he is just playing around and everyone is taking him too seriously. The walking stick was my favorite episode ever. I know the whole khardashian thing makes a bunch of people sick and me too at times, but I think of them as entertainment. Their 30 minutes show isn’t any different than watching any other show every week and I view it as entertainment not the truth.

  11. NancyMan says:

    I’d rather be childish than be a asinine.

    My Grandfather once told me- ‘ Never trust a man who spends too much time worrying about his outfit or his appearance. It indicates a shortcoming in his character.’

    I’ve found this to be true numerous times in my life. Ladies- beware!

  12. Mia135 says:

    I too like a man who is groomed, well-tailored and has style. But Scott only wears posh clothes – he does not really have that style and class that is graceful, effortless and comes from within. With Scott it is too forced and pretentious, IMHO.

  13. Mari says:

    I have FINALLY figured out who he reminds me of….! Patrick Bateman in American Physco. The clothes, the attitude, the psychosis… wonder if his business cards are foil embossed…*shudders*

  14. Siren6 says:

    I can’t help it. Every picture of him I can’t stop thinking “douche, douche, douche..”

  15. guesty says:

    He must think he’s Donald Trump II.

  16. Kim says:

    I think he actually comes from a lot of money, so he’s probably not JUST spending Kourtney’s dough (which, in all fairness, she didn’t really earn, either).

  17. the original bellaluna says:

    Lipstick on a pig.

    And he ought to know childish: he appears to have had his favorite “blankie” made into a jacket; and his Madras shorts look like his Crayon box melted. (And I’ve LOVED Madras for most of my life!)

  18. tomas says:

    I’d rather dress like a child than act like a PRICK.

  19. Tiffany says:

    I agree with Scott *duck as stones are thrown at her*. Guys just don’t care about their appearance. My last boyfriend told me not to wear one of my favorite summer skirts but when I wear it in public, I got nothing but compliments. My ex, during the summer wore the same shorts 6 days in a row. When I offered to go with him to buy another pair (he makes good money) he wondered why he needed another pair. Holes in T-shirts, wriinkles all around, but my clothing was a problem. I am just glad that a male spoke up about

  20. Someone Else says:

    And yet, he chooses to be seen with Kourtney? There’s not enough money or etiquette training that could ever class that girl up.

    Why isn’t their 15 minutes up yet?

  21. Someone Else says:

    And yet, he chooses to be seen with Kourtney? There’s not enough money or etiquette training that could ever class that girl up.

    Why isn’t their 15 minutes up yet? Oh yeah. Ryan Seacrest. Why isn’t his?

  22. logan says:

    Most of the above pictures of this dandy remind me of young boys going to church on Easter morning. “My mom made me wear these pink pants.” ha ha ha.

  23. Sue says:

    Kim@ I think what people mean is that it wasn’t for Kourtney no one would know who he is she his publicity meal ticket.

    P.S. Brad from Rachel Zoe makes it look effortless while Scott looks like he trying too hard to be “cool”.

  24. Coco says:

    That is so not his chest/arm/pecs in that mag pic. And yes, he’s douschtastic but I find him amusing…

  25. Anne de Vries says:

    Who is this dude? Has he done anything of note that I could know him for?

  26. Allison says:

    Yeah theres much more to say about the guy who walks in a room dressed like THAT…and none of it is good.

  27. BW says:

    Is that a deck of cards in your pants, or are you just wanting to play gin-rummy with me?

  28. TG says:

    @NancyMan – I agree with you about a man trying too hard saying something about his character and that goes for tattoos also in my opinion. I like a man who is a man without trying to prove it by tattoos, fancy jewels, car, etc. But, what I was saying about Scott is fantasy. I would never be attracted to a guy who dresses that way but he is fantasy for me so I love his style and attitude on the show because for me it isn’t reality it is entertainment.

  29. alexandra says:

    He is a suppository of a man, slather in sh*t.

  30. original kate says:

    it’s funny, for a guy who fancies himself a style icon his suits certainly are badly tailored. all too small and tight.

  31. nofrank says:

    Actually, Scott, it should be “I dress more MATURELY than most,” but nice try. Your grammar and your sartorial style are of a piece. Please take note, world: this is what happens when you let the attention whores think they matter. They come out in plaid shorts and torture adverbs on the record. Tsk.

  32. chichi says:

    is no one going to mention the fact that, his arms were photoshopped? scott dipshit wishes his arms were that muscular in real life.

  33. Theuth says:

    Ha! And he thinks THIS STYLE is good? Please! Just because you wear a suit, doesn’t make you a classier man: especially something so ugly (bad tailored, horrible colour combos and improbable mix).

  34. Isabel says:

    My cousin gets really inappropriately drunk at family functions. He then becomes verbally abusive and hyper-critical of everyone around him. He and Scott have achieved about the same level of maturity and superiority in my mind.

  35. Ron says:

    His outfits often look like attention whoring costumes. Wait, he is Mr Kardshian……..

  36. Tanya says:

    Maybe he was distracted whilst giving this interview. Maybe he had some videos to return…

  37. nikki says:

    “he’s always dressed up like a real life stock character version of Richie Rich”

    Best quote ever!
    I hate polo shirts on guys.

  38. FluffyPrincess says:

    He wears nice clothes, but he has no style.

    He’s like Victoria Beckham–a wardrobe to die for with zero style what so ever!

    You know who has hot man-style? David Beckham. DB can wear the shizzy out of 3-pc suit or shorts and t-shirt. DB in a *sarong* looks better/more “mature”/manly than Scott D in his madras shorts and loafers.

  39. Amy says:

    The guy just dresses super preppy, he’d fit right in at the country club in my hometown where all the other Wall Street fathers spend their days sailing or playing golf. That’s what his style is–extremely preppy.

  40. JoJo says:

    And in what universe are pink pants mature? I’d much rather see my man in his dirty blue collar work jeans (with his fantastic smile) than this jerkoff in what he thinks is his so-called sartorial splendor. *@#%BARF**** At least my honey works for his living and isn’t some pompous glorified dandy.

  41. Becca B says:

    This dude is SO unattractive. And giving “deep and meaningful” interviews like this one doesn´t help very much either.

    Oh, and photoshop biceps on the cover? Please!

  42. Leticia says:

    Although he is a delusional jerk, I do agree with his opinion regarding American dress. Most Americans dress like giant toddlers.

  43. UnAttributableSpoon says:

    Are you sure they didn’t misspell his last name on his birth certificate?

    It should be spelled “Dick” instead of “Disick” ^.^

  44. malachais says:

    He’s going to criticize American dress while his girlfriend pays for the suits he’s wearing. Scott, wouldn’t you be wearing “t-shirts and flip flops” if you weren’t mooching off your girlfriend? The girlfriend that has piggy-backed her younger sister’s money wagon.

    People dress down all over the world, its not just American style. If someone doesn’t dress up or stay with the trends, doesn’t that make you have a “lack of” style? Idiot.

    Without momma famewhore – Kim – what would these two be doing? Honestly?

  45. Faye says:

    Of course if a man walks in a room with his outfit set to “stun” everyone will swoon. But if the outfit is all the man has going for him, then who gives an eff what he’s wearing?

    My bf isn’t the best dresser, but he’s smart, he has a great work ethic, and is genuinely a great person.

    If I sat down to lunch with Scott Disick dressed in his “lunch hour best,” his clothing and general appearance would hold my attention for probably about 30 seconds, TOPS. What else do you have going for you, Scott?

  46. Harley says:

    I keep waiting to see him as one of the fugitives on “America’s Most Wanted.” He just looks like he’d have 17 bodies buried in the basement. Ugh, there’s just something so creepy about him.

  47. TXCinderella says:

    Scott is a frickin’ jerk and I wish Kourtney would get away from him. I know they have Mason together, but he is just a waste of space. Anyone who has to wear clothes like that so that they can convince everyone that they are somebody important has low self-worth. Even famous English gentlemen (William & Harry, for example) like to dress casually now and then. Oh, and the walking cane…STUPID!

  48. TXCinderella says:

    Scott, the 80′s called and they want their preppy style back!

  49. jacquie109 says:

    #14. LOL I said this months ago on another web site. The guy tries to portray a physco. I was watching the movie for the first time last year with my guy and the first thing I thought was “Scot Disick”. I’m glad others are making the connection!!! Maybe he’ll stop faking it.
    It is the kind of style for some “New York” business men but that is not him. And we are deffinitly not in the 80′s anymore!!!

  50. Kim says:

    So this “man child” must love American fashion.

    He dresses like people who dont come from money dress because its how they think people from money dress and they just look like fools.

    His baby momma cant dress to save her life so they have that in common.

  51. Jennifer says:

    Yeah, “but there’s definitely something to compliment about a guy who walks in with a beautiful collared shirt with French cuffs and a perfectly tailored sports coat.” It’s called being gay, Scott. Say it with me, “My name is Scott and I am gay; and that’s ok”

  52. Sassy says:

    check the last picture. Isn’t that Maksim Chernofsky from DWTS in the background? Now there is a guy who should be featured more often.

  53. Amandahugandkiss says:

    Never trust a man who wears shoes with no socks.

  54. Erin says:

    @12 – Love it! There’s nothing wrong with putting a little effort into appearance, but when it becomes a preoccupation, beware! Also, really????Are we saying this is “well dresed”? This guy is dressed like a buffoon.

  55. Ruffian9 says:

    Who is this Scott Dick? That black satin 3-piece is atrocious. Also, less hair product.

  56. Micki says:

    He seems one of these men who find suit automatically elegant. As his posture in every photo is so contrived I’m not going to buy it.

  57. rightgrrl says:

    as repugnant as he is, patrick bateman can DRESS!

  58. Emily says:

    Of course he’s a good dresser. Wouldn’t expect anything else from a gay Patrick Bateman.

  59. dahlia1947 says:

    I agree with him. alot of guys just dress like, i don’t know, old men with baggy pants, just sloppy. I don’t always like what he wears, but just the fact that he makes an effort to look put together says alot.

    What I really hate is seeing a couple and the girl is dressed very nicely, but the guy is looking sloppy and unkept. Or if he’s dressed decently, he’s wearing sneakers or something.

  60. dahlia1947 says:

    Like I said I don’t like what he wears, the bow ties and pink pants or whatever but HE’S TRYING unlike alot of guys, SO IT’S COOL.

    It’s HIS STYLE, so what? If a sloppy dressing celebrity said “Oh I’d rather be comfortable, (or)Americans are SO stuffy.” They’re be alot of people criticizing them TOO! Sigh

  61. DiMi says:

    Um, people have been comparing him to P. Bateman of American Psycho for awhile now. It’s accurate, but he’s not interesting enough to be really psycho.

    He’s just a gold digger.

  62. Eluxury says:

    These boutiques are frequently begin in flush arcade districts or central affluence administration stores.
