I haven’t stepped into a country club, played golf, nor am I a WASP, but I’ll still wear this slightly obnoxious, preppy garment.Read More
I thought I was done after I filled my closet with spearpoints, OCBDS, and sportshirts. “What else could there be that I could wear”, I asked myself.
The answer lies in this long blog post. And yes, these new shirts fit in perfectly with my style.
It’s time to get even edgier and wear some fun pants with tailoring.
<Drake’s is a company that we’ve referenced many times through the course of this blog. For those of you who are familiar with the company, they first got their start in the 1970’s selling ties and pocket squares. 30 years later, the company has expanded their product offering! They’ve begun to offer shirts, sportcoats, sweaters, and (now) high-rise pants! To celebrate their latest products and the opening of their first American store, I decided to do an “Inspiration for Less” based on their newly released Fall 2016 look book.
I’ve been meaning to go to SF (and the Bay Area) and shop around for a long time. The last time I went was two years ago when Tim and I stumbled upon Haight Street and its awesome vintage stores. I planned to go for my 21st birthday in July, but circumstances arose that only allowed us to go during this past September Weekend! Spencer, Jeremiah and I (the Spring 2016 Dapper Day crew) were only able to spend two nights/one day in the Area but it was definitely a lot of fun, especially since we were able to dress up and walk around!
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.
Dapper Day is my version of Pitti Uomo; street style abounds! People are able to go around Disneyland and dress up in style, whether its vintage, vintage inspired, or modern! Since it is Spring, the guys and I decided to take our vintage style to the next level. Most people make the misconception that vintage clothes are all made of thick wools and are only available in muted, boring colors. However, the 1940’s were still stylin’ in hot weather! They had a variety of fabrics that were still breathable and and comfortable to wear and were especially light colored for spring and summer fashion! Our outfits for Spring Dapper Day give you real evidence that vintage suit style is still creative, fun, and colorful!
Valentine’s Day is this coming Weekend and it’s important to look good. Last time we explored the different outfits for different occasions. This year we’re going a little different. While we normally have a pro-tie stance, sometimes it’s best to go against the grain and ditch the tie. However, the lack of tie doesn’t give you an excuse to dress down! Here are some tie-less looks that can work best for any of your Valentine’s Day plans!
