How and Where To Buy Clothes

Untitled

A question I get asked most often is where I get all my clothes.  The second most asked question is how do I afford it.  While its true dressing well can be expensive, it’s only expensive when you go for high end products and never shop sales.  Here, I’m going to explain to you some of the tricks of the trade I’ve used to amass my wardrobe.  Just remember that my style is very affordable.

What I Wish I Knew

Untitled
Look at the picture above.  Jeremiah, on the right, looks like how I dress now, and I look like a guy who has no idea what he’s doing.  I just slapped on some colors together with no regard to how it clashes or flows.  People assume that I’ve always been stylish and always knew how to dress up, but they’re dead wrong.  When I first came to college, I wore shorts and tee shirts and was a freshman who had no sense of identity and no sense of style.  Eventually I realized that since I’m in college, I can be who I want to be and dress how I want to dress.  It took a while, but I’m still not there yet.  I’m constantly trying new things, tailoring my clothes, and I’m in this journey of self discovery with my style.  However, there are a few things that I’ve learned since my freshman year that would’ve saved me so much time in being who I am.

With the exception of tuxedos, I believe that there is no distinction between “formal” and “casual” clothes; everything you own should be simply be articles to create any look you want.  With a suit, you great two great pieces: the suit jacket and the trousers.

UntitledGuys tend to have one style.  Raj for example, only sticks to the preppy essentials.  Jay on the other hand doesn’t limit himself to just one specific style; he has such an expansive closet that he can create a series of different looks.   Having a diverse style allows you to break out of your comfort zone and have outfits for any occasion.  In this feature, Jay wears three different outfits that really break the mold.

A “Mad Men” Evening feat. Spencer and Jay

It is my belief that the rise of menswear in this modern era has its roots in the critically-acclaimed show “Mad Men”.  Guys started wearing suits more, putting a pocket square in that razor thin square fold, and even brought the fedora back in some circles.  A while ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Spencer and Jay, the most well dressed high schoolers I know.   They love the show and carefully evoke the style in their outfits.  As we had a swell dinner at South Coast Plaza, I just had to snap some pictures of these guys!

Wearable Women Wednesday with Antonella

I love when someone has not just one style, but a variety of different styles.  Antonella is no exception.  When I first got to know her, I was surprised that she was actually interested in vintage fashion.  As we kept talking I realized that she was a fellow fashionista and I’m glad we finally get to have her as our Wearable Women Wednesday!  In this edition, we get to feature three distinctly different outfits from Antonella to show that her style isn’t confined to just one type.
