Untitled

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. In this post, we focus on leaving your jeans at home and walking out in your suit pants!  Just because they’re suit pants doesn’t mean you have to dress fancy; you can dress them down!

“Manners Maketh Man”: Two Outfits from Kingsman, The Secret Service

A few weeks ago, I was able to watch Kingsman, a British spy/comedy movie.  In the movie, Colin Firth’s character “Galahad” (his Kingsman codename), repeatedly said “manners maketh man” before he kicked some bad guy butt.  Throughout the film, there were many references to gentlemanly fashion, such as “oxfords, not brogues” (oxfords are plain, while brogues have the wingtip design) and the importance of a well tailored suit.  In fact, the suits in the universe of the film were even bulletproof!  Here, I show off two outfits inspired by two characters from the film:  Galahad and Merlin.

Styles of the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo

This weekend I was able to go to the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo in Downtown Los Angeles.  Vintage fashion is a personal hobby of mine.  While I do love wearing modern clothes, there is something about the cut and patterns of the 1920s-1950’s that interest me.  So this weekend, I went to the Expo wearing one of my favourite and most unique vintage pieces.  I was also able to snap a few shots of people’s fashion  that I enjoyed!
