A custom tie from my favorite tie maker. Never thought this would happen!
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.
A lot of people don’t like buying clothes from eBay. Sellers don’t often provide accurate measurements, they don’t accept returns, and sometimes the items are just not what you expected. However, I don’t believe that this should bar you from trying to buy on eBay. You might be able to find something awesome, like I did with my “new” 1960’s ivy suit.
Recently, I made a point to try out a MTM suit by Indochino, a custom suiting and shirt company started in 2007. I have seen other reviews of this service by Articles of Style, Dappered, and even the Young and Fine Gentleman. To try it out for myself, I saved up a couple hundred bucks and purchased a suit, made from the measurements I provided.
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!
