After a slew of minimal fits, it feels great to get back to wearing a shirt and tie combo in suit separates. took a classic grey on grey combo and gave it a nice pop of subtle boldness with a mustard tie. Continue Reading
I have been gravitating to more classic and easy fits (although I do miss a good shirt and tie combo, hitting the page soon!!). It’s important to have classic fits that are not just versatile but easy to throw on at any given moment. Step in the color black…
As fall soon approaches, its time to bring out the essential outerwear and a must-have in every man’s closet is a classic clean knit shawl collar popover and this one by Express is just perfect. Consider it your grown man’s sweatshirt that instantly elevates any fit and gives it an effortless yet laid back cool vibe. Facing the cold weather means staying as comfortable and as warming up as easy as possible. Continue Reading
One of my favorite things to do (and “rule of thumbs” wink wink) is mixing and matching various pieces. And by that, I don’t just mean breaking up your suits (although, that is always a great thing to do!). I mean mixing bold patterns with classic solids or taking a classic blazer and pairing it with a great shirt. Mixing and matching not only creates a unique look, it allows for pieces in your closet to be multifunctional.
Those awkward weeks (for some, months) between summer and fall always leaves me confused as to whether to start layering, wear socks, skip the jacket… you catch my drift. I decided to show you all a fit I would consider a “transition to fall” look.
One of my all time favorite holidays has always been Labor Day. Why? Because it’s a three day weekend in late summer with just the right amount of heat and sun that make the days feel that much nicer. This past weekend was nothing short of that hanging with some of the coolest guys I know; Blake, Ty, and Perkens.
Summers in LA are the best excuse (and perfect weather) to wear white denim. One of my favorite looks has always been the denim and blazer combo. It works perfectly well for the office or for a casual day about the city. While the white denim is bold, the blazer gives it that classic feel that creates a nice balance.
Growing up, I always admired the idea of dressing up with a purpose… there’s a sense of nostalgia and it’s nice to uphold certain traditions that make up a heritage. That’s what the racetrack always signified to me, a place where dapper gentlemen suited up and donned their “Sunday best”. It is only befitting that Crosby Square honored the racetrack tradition as they are a heritage brand themselves. Made up of classic and dapper designs, their shoes are what I call “lifetime timeless” shoes. They will never go out of style and only get better with time. Continue Reading
Two things about me: I love clothes and I really, really, REALLY love music. Every year, for the last six years, I have been making the pilgrimage to the Coachella Arts and Music Festival. As an avid music lover, it is important to make sure I squeeze in as many bands as possible while they are under one sun. Keeping cool while staying cool is easy in some great summer staples and details.
One of the best parts of doing what I love is meeting amazing people and, recently, I had the privilege to get together with six amazing menswear bloggers in support of our good friend’s shoe launch. Kory Stevens, the genius behind THE BEST (and you can quote me!) no-show sock ventured into shoes… and killed the game! Continue Reading
