I won’t tolerate any French jokes. Well, maybe just one. How could you not?
That title is a mouthful, but it’s exactly what this beast of a jacket is. They really don’t make jackets like this anymore!
I normally don’t advocate anything from the 1970’s, but I’ll have to make an exception for these shoes. The Wallace & Barnes P204 is the right amount of outrageous that I’ve needed to inject into my wardrobe!
I apologize for the ass shot, but these cinch-back trousers make it worth it. They’re definitely hard to find, as I’d only seen them in pictures and illustrations before now!
Time keep our layering theme going by visiting the deep reaches of my wardrobe and bringing out some cool, unique vintage outerwear!
Dapper Day is finally here, and while I do like to write a post each time (to help you get dressed), I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of articles that I think can help you get started with vintage or vintage inspired style!
As Dapper Day is just around the corner, I thought it would be cool to write a quick article on how to dress like the 1930’s-1940’s even when you don’t have a vintage suit! It’s fairly simple!
As I continue to be more intentional in my buying (instead of buying random thrifts for the sake of tailoring), I’ve decided that my money could be better used on obtaining grails, both for wear and use in a bespoke reproduction. One of the first ones was the 1930’s brown SB patch pocket suit (with gorgeous lapels). This jacket was the next one.
Extra Long Blog Post!
One of the questions I get from guys who have come across my style is “why do you like vintage”? Well the truth of the matter is, I don’t always like to wear vintage. There are a few things that modern manufacturers get right that I enjoy (extremely soft tailoring is one). If I had the money, I could possibly have an entire bespoke wardrobe. However there’s one main reason why I always return to vintage and that’s due to the details that they just don’t do anymore.
Vintage, pre-1970’s brown herringbone sack suits from Brooks Brothers are pretty hard to come by. Well, Spencer and I found two!
