The Gooch Bros. are back again, bringing everyone back to the Arts District for a great evening of music, snacks, and great brands.
For the first time, we go to a LACMA x Dapper Day event in the evening. It was certainly a great way to end the first month of 2019!
Long story short, these events just get better and better. You need to join us!
A few weekends ago, we went to the PTO Holiday Market and spent the evening in Little Tokyo.
Honestly, these posts are just an excuse to show off some silly photography of the LA menswear scene. But you like that, don’t you?
Do you know what the clock says? It says it’s time for a review! We look at two shoes from 51 Label Co., a new shoe company based in Singapore.
Disclaimer: We received two pairs of shoes in exchange for this review.
This ain’t sponsored, I just really like this thing.
Nothing says grandpa or old-man style like a sleeveless cardigan. And that’s exactly what I want, so I bought one!
This weekend, the guys and I decided to check out the latest LA destination for classic menswear: the Bloke. This is going to be a long post.
One of the many #menswear sins that people like to spout out is to never wear brown shoes with a black suit. It causes repulsion in some, conniptions in others, and a shunning glance to all. Even so, there is one sin that is far worse than even that: wearing white socks with dress shoes. In fact, I haven’t seen too much of it since the 1990s thanks to multiple #menswear bloggers and vloggers who aim to stamp out this inglorious affectation. However there’s something intriguing about pairing white socks with formal clothing that has been calling out to me. This practice started in the 1950s and 1960s, and while I take a lot of my cues from the 30s, it’s time we look somewhere else for inspiration.
Update 8/31/18: Okay so I reference this article a lot, but I do white socks for a lot more than just sartorial stuff. Go figure.
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!
