I finally have something to wear with evening wear instead of inaccurate black brogues!
It never really rains here in Los Angeles. But when it does, I have a definite love/hate relationship with the precipitation.
The past few weeks of rain inspired me to finally write about it!
From The Armoury to Drake’s, there’s plenty of inspiration to be had from the guys today. It ain’t always about vintage!
This past weekend, Spencer and I attended the Monsivais & Co Grand Opening party at their newly opened showroom in Highland Park. It was a great event, with some great style worn by the attendees.
Warning: This is a long post!
Paris was the first top in my short 2-week Eurotrip. Like most family trips, my stay in the City of Lights was dominated by a strict schedule of tours and excursions. This article will share the outfits I wore on the trip as well as give a brief summary of what I did during that day! It’s a small departure of the usual content on this blog, but I hope you enjoy it.
It’s time to take the chore coat out of the realm of workwear and add in some tailoring. Because you know, that’s kind of our thing here.
The guys and I are no stranger to vintage clothing. Whether it’s true vintage suits or even putting together something “vintage casual”, we definitely love vintage. While the former has a very niche following (the vintage community as I affectionately call it), the latter is huge in the mainstream society. With loop collar shirts, cool sweaters, and straight/wide selvedge denim, this special breed of vintage enthusiast is typically what most people tend to go for when they want a “vintage look”. There isn’t a huge tradeshow like Pitti Uomo, Inspiration LA is the event to go to if you like that look. It’s certainly a great place to go to see some of the coolest vintage pieces (that still exist) as well as some of the best dressed guys in the world that aren’t in suits.
I am a big fan of vintage clothing. They’re filled with so much character that you just can’t find today! Unless you go bespoke or completely custom, there’s no way you’re going to get specific lapels, particular cuts/designs, or even cool fabric. Vintage is a staple of my wardrobe and I am always on the lookout for something cool to add into my rotation! Outerwear and sweaters in particular are a great way to add some vintage pizzaz into your own outfits. A few articles ago we talked about the vintage M-43 field jacket and the Fair Isle Sweater vest. This time we’re going to look at a vintage Cowichan sweater.
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.
