It’s about time that my casual attire has gotten it’s own article. It’s certainly changed a lot throughout the years, becoming an entity that’s almost entirely separate than my sartorial outfits.
Expanding my casual side is definitely something I’ve been trying to do lately. If you follow me on Instagram or watch me closely on Male Fashion Advice, you’ll see that it’s been happening slowly but surely. As we get right into the beginning of “real summer”, there’s probably going to be a lot more of these posts since it’s the best way to try new ways to dress down.
Simon James Cathcart has made a home-run again, this time creating an amazing reproduction 1930’s polo shirt. This isn’t a sponsored post; Spencer and I fucking saved up to get these beauties for ourselves. Best of all, they work with a variety of styles, whether you want something vintage or contemporary!
Even though we love going sartorial on the blog, we still have a passion for casual style. It’s been 80F for a full two weeks in Southern California and I’ve found myself ditching my ties for open collars and my sportcoats for rolled up shirt sleeves. We’ve talked about sartorial casual, but its always fun to take it down a notch further and wear tee shirts with trousers! It’s a topic we’ve explored 3 times in the past, but this one has a slight nautical twist. The look is perfect for hot days when even a button up is too much.
September has finally arrived and so has the first wave of fall products. Banana Republic has started stocking their flannel pants and J. Crew is advertising their latest trenchcoat model. However, being a Southern California Native, I am still feeling the effects of the 90F+ heat. That’s why I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy two things I should’ve had since June: the white espadrille and the rayon Hawaiian Shirt.
