Time to eat turkey and get silly with your friends.
There are a lot of controversial things that this blog advocates. Spear point collars, collar bars, high rise trousers, and white socks are just a few of those pieces! Whether you wear these things together or incorporate one, you end up with a cool vintage look that sets your sartorial game apart from everyone else. Now it’s time to talk about another addition to “Ethan’s Favorite Things”: the fair isle sweater vest.
Sweaters have been around for a long time. Today, guys mainly wear them two ways: as a replacement shirt (crew neck) or as a layering item for business casual (v-neck). Don’t get me wrong, sweaters are great! However, there is something about the styles and patterns of vintage sweaters that make them such an awesome piece for me. They go great with more formal clothes, to give you that smart, “vintage” look!
This weekend, Spencer and I went to Inspiration LA, a huge vintage gathering in Southern California. At the REEF in Downtown Los Angeles, multitudes of dealers selling vintage apparel, reproduction garments, and other crafts come together to present their wares to the public.
