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.
It’s our bi-annual tradition to go to Dapper Day at Disneyland. People go to the parks dressed in their best attire, whether its vintage, vintage inspired, modern, or anything in between! While the style varied a lot between the guests, our group went decidedly 1930s-1940s as we usually do, combining textures and patterns as expertly as possible. Here’s what we wore on that slightly mild November day!
Herringbone is a classic pattern that has been found on suits, jackets, shirts, and even ties. Dan Trepanier from Articles of Style wrote a great piece on it’s history. Being a classic pattern, it provides a great vintage look when found on a sport coat or suit! It’s been a while since we’ve done a “What We Wore This Week”, so here’s our latest entry with Spencer and I both wearing the pattern!
It seems like girls have all the fun when it comes to accessorizing. They get necklaces, earrings, piercings, belts, and bracelets. Most guys are still under the impression that you don’t get to add personality when you get to dress up. However, I’m here to tell you that this mindset is wrong. Menswear has a few functional accessories that are definitely able to be used to step up your suit game. In this article, we’re going to look at some of my picks as my favourite types of menswear accessories.
Suits have a bad rap. Menswear bloggers today are dedicated to making suits and formal wear look as casual as possible. For example, Dan Trepanier has an article on wearing Henley’s with your suit and HVRMINN wears Nike’s with his sharp DB’s. It seems that the suit (and its traditional accoutrements) has not shaken its pariah status among the masses. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all about dressing down a suit, but I’m still a standing fan of the classic suit worn. To my knowledge, there’s only a few men that can make wearing a suit look natural and easy, and I have the pleasure of featuring one of those masters. I present Chad Park from B&Tailor.
