Drake’s London for Less: The Fall ’16 Lookbook

IMG_2269
<Drake’s is a company that we’ve referenced many times through the course of this blog. For those of you who are familiar with the company, they first got their start in the 1970’s selling ties and pocket squares.  30 years later, the company has expanded their product offering!  They’ve begun to offer shirts, sportcoats, sweaters, and (now) high-rise pants!  To celebrate their latest products and the opening of their first American store, I decided to do an “Inspiration for Less” based on their newly released Fall 2016 look book.

Friendgiving is a great tradition.  While I did enjoy Thanksgiving with my family, I also appreciate the time to hang out and have dinner with just friends.  Like with any event, it was an opportunity for Spencer, Jay, and I to break out some cool fall sartorial style for the dinner!  Unlike last time, none of us wore tweed; however we still brought our A-game.

I’m an LA native, but I don’t take advantage of it. I’ve been to LACMA  and a few other cool spots, but never the Broad, which is right in Downtown LA near the Walt Disney Concert Hall and MOCA.  Seeing as I had a free day with Anthony (who is originally from D.C and had never been to the West Coast), I decided to take him there to do some shooting and look at some fantastic artwork.  Luckily, we were also joined by classic style enthusiasts Jacob and Nicholas.  The resultant pictures were amazing.

Here it is, the long awaited documentation of style at Dapper Day!  I usually take a lot of pictures, but this time I was a bit disappointing with the turn out.  A few people actually didn’t want their pictures taken! But the people who did accepted enthusiastically.  Expression of style and fun is the main reason I enjoy going to Dapper Day.  So enjoy some of the great outfits that Anthony and I had the privilege of shooting!

Our Vintage Style at the Fall 2016 Dapper Day

IMG_2311
It’s our bi-annual tradition to go to Dapper Day at Disneyland.  People go to the parks dressed in their best attire, whether its vintage, vintage inspired, modern, or anything in between!  While the style varied a lot between the guests, our group went decidedly 1930s-1940s as we usually do, combining textures and patterns as expertly as possible. Here’s what we wore on that slightly mild November day!

What We Wore This Week: The Herringbone Twins

Herringbone is a classic pattern that has been found on suits, jackets, shirts, and even ties.  Dan Trepanier from Articles of Style wrote a great piece on it’s history.  Being a classic pattern, it provides a great vintage look when found on a sport coat or suit!  It’s been a while since we’ve done a “What We Wore This Week”, so here’s our latest entry with Spencer and I both wearing the pattern!
