Time to be like a basic #menswear blogger and do that whole thing where we take one item and style it two different ways!
It seems that most of the vintage posts on this blog seem to revolve around backyard sales and Dapper Day and I really aim to change that. There’s an entire community that revolves around vintage and its pretty fun to be apart of! This article covers the style at Paper Moon Vintage (the first vintage store I ever went to) and their Tiki-Hawaiian party!
While the rest of the world may be cooling down for fall, my forecast says that it will be 90 degrees this weekend! In fact, it was 91F when I went to work at the time of this article. So, I decided to go with a something summery without standing out too much. Curtis Newkirk, from Beckett & Robb served as the inspiration for this outfit!
Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual tradeshow and site of #menswear pilgrimage, has come and gone again. Men of course were dressed in a variety of styles, whether they were classic like the Armoury boys or overly peacocking like AE Marmora. Even though we couldn’t attend, my friends decided to be inspired and dress up. Instead of going a bit crazy like we did last time, we went with more subdued and classic styles.
I am a firm believer that suits can be dressed down. As spring has officially started here in America, it’s time to bring those sartorial pieces down a notch so you can keep cool and look good! One great and often misunderstood piece to turn your suits casual is the polo shirt. It’s no longer just for academy uniforms or baggy business casual drones.
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!
Pitti Uomo is the menswear event of the year. Its the time when fashion designers come out and show off their latest designs and styles to store owners. As a result, some of the most well dressed men from around the world come and stand around smoking and eating, getting pictures taken of them. Even though I couldn’t be in Florence with them, I still dressed up to be apart of it.
