In efforts to extend the list of NOTABLE people that I recognize here at Pretentious Dick, I’m creating a new series of post; NOTABLE COUPLES. The list will consist of power couples who contribute to society in their work and in fashion, but mostly in fashion. This is a style blog, right?
As if I don’t discuss them enough, kicking off the series is the young and wealthy power duo that is Chris Hughes and Sean Eldridge. It isn’t enough that because of these men we have Facebook and the success of Freedom to Marry, one of the most influential organization to advocate same sex marriage, but they also look great doing what they do.
Eldridge (right), 25, is the president of a the New York investment firm, Hudson River Ventures. Hughes (left), 28, is the editor in chief of The New Republic magazine. He graduated from Harvard where he co-founded Facebook alongside Mark Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin. Chris also organized the online campaign for President Obama in 2008.
The two met in November of 2005 as the Times writes:
“The couple met…through a college acquaintance of Mr. Eldridge’s at a brunch in Harvard Square in Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Eldridge was working as a customer service manager for a moving company in Somerville, Mass., and Mr. Hughes was a senior at Harvard, and already a founder of Facebook.”
“He was very intelligent and charismatic,” Hughes said of Eldridge. “He was very kind and politically engaged, and he cared about the world around us. All of that was very attractive to me.”
Eldridge was equally attracted. A week later, he asked Hughes out on a date.“I think we shared a lot of important, common interests,” Mr. Eldridge said. “We have a love of philosophy, politics and literature. He was one of the most intelligent and ambitious people I had ever met.”
Every time the two are spotted they are dressed very well for the occasion. From their engagement photos to the wedding (pictured above), which took place in April of this year, the two show they know how to wear a suit.
Here are your notables, just a day early. This week was casual as shit; A spectrum of foot ware from loafers to bare feet.

- PRETENTIOUS DICK
Good morning my little…dicks. I don’t know what to call you guys yet. Anyway, here is your weekly sidebar notables update. If you are new to Pretentious Dick; NOTABLES are those with grade A blogs powered by Tumblr, however they make an unsurpassed effort (it’s just natural for most of them) to interact with their following and have a positive attitude always; no pretentiousness or sarcasm included and there is little to no attention paid to alleged “anons” on these blogs. Nothing gives me a headache more than having your dash cluttered with a fight between a grown man and an anonymous person. These are the kids who really deserved the citizenship award in grade school.
