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!
Everyone knows that I’m a big proponent of high rise trousers. They make you look slimmer and make your legs look longer; you can’t lose while wearing them! However, you can’t wear trousers everyday. Even I don’t do that. There are days when I wear jeans, but I seldom wear them with tailored clothing (button ups, jackets, etc) due to the fact that most jeans out there have a super low rise. I had tried on some vintage denim that had a high-rise but it was way out of price range. However Levis came through with the 501 CT line, which have become my go to jean.
Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual tradeshow and site of #menswear pilgrimage, has come and gone again. Men of course were dressed in a variety of styles, whether they were classic like the Armoury boys or overly peacocking like AE Marmora. Even though we couldn’t attend, my friends decided to be inspired and dress up. Instead of going a bit crazy like we did last time, we went with more subdued and classic styles.
It’s always fun when we get to have a themed group post. As stated in the name of this article, the guys and I looked to the Armoury’s Spring editorial for inspiration for our outfits during this past week.
The bride and groom have spent a lot of time picking out their perfect outfits. How about you?
