Racks and racks of vintage suits, sportcoats, shirts, and ties from the 1900s all the way to the 1960’s; that’s what awaits you at Benny Reese’s house.
Suits have a bad rap. Menswear bloggers today are dedicated to making suits and formal wear look as casual as possible. For example, Dan Trepanier has an article on wearing Henley’s with your suit and HVRMINN wears Nike’s with his sharp DB’s. It seems that the suit (and its traditional accoutrements) has not shaken its pariah status among the masses. Don’t get me wrong; I’m all about dressing down a suit, but I’m still a standing fan of the classic suit worn. To my knowledge, there’s only a few men that can make wearing a suit look natural and easy, and I have the pleasure of featuring one of those masters. I present Chad Park from B&Tailor.
Here at SxS, we want to show you a variety of personal styles so you can see that while most of us do dress up, we do it in certain ways that make it distinctly unique to us! For this feature, we took some pictures of what the Team and some contributors were wearing this past week and made a post! Let us know which your favourite outfit was!
Continuing our new feature, Raj and I bring you a classic preppy pattern: the nautical stripe. Even though Rajesh and I like to dress up (and even have some of the same clothes) we each have our own unique style. So we decided to do a challenge: let’s keep the same shirt pattern but we have to try and make it our own. So let us know what you think in the comments below! Who did wear it best?
