Had some Holiday fun with the SoCal menswear scene at one of my favorite, if not only, classic menswear stores in Los Angeles! It also happened to be the site of the seasonal Ring Jacket trunk show, which I had always wanted to check out.
Two Dapper Day events in a row and we aren’t tired yet! This time we get a chance to don evening wear, actually go into the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and enjoy some great music!
Your favorite boys get to represent classic menswear at the latest Dapper Day Expo.
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!
We talked about doing interviews and features a long time ago, and I’m glad to finally bring that to the blog. Our first guest is Cody Wellema, of the Wellema Hat Co., who has an atelier that is literally five minutes from where I live.
Long post due to pictures!
Okay, maybe I should stop complaining about the lack of the cool menswear events here in LA because I went to a great one this past weekend at the Wellema Hat Co.
You’ve probably seen their amazing product photography on Instagram. Well, I was able to check it out in person. It was the first trunk show I’ve ever been to!
Absurdly long article on a garment that almost no menswear writer has touched on.
In the world of vintage casualwear, one article of clothing reigns supreme: the sportshirt. Because of its uniquely shaped collar (which lies flat and creates a notch, like a jacket’s lapel) it is commonly known on the internet as the Cuban or camp collar shirt. While the term loop collar has been thrown in the mix, it’s best known among true vintage enthusiasts and collectors as the sport shirt.
There have been a few articles written by other people on this subject, but none of have gone past the 1950s and 1960s in terms of history. We’re here to put the record straight on this classic piece of vintage menswear that was worn by men of all ages in a variety of different outfits.
