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.
Friendgiving is a great tradition. While I did enjoy Thanksgiving with my family, I also appreciate the time to hang out and have dinner with just friends. Like with any event, it was an opportunity for Spencer, Jay, and I to break out some cool fall sartorial style for the dinner! Unlike last time, none of us wore tweed; however we still brought our A-game.
People like to call out Jos A. Bank and Menswear House for making some of the worst suits out there. They like to cite quality concerns, fit issues, and an overall outdated or boxy look look that is made worse by the “overpriced yet crazy discount”model that the company operates with. Just look at some of their markdowns. However, I absolutely pounced at the chance to buy one. I did cheat though; it was on eBay!
This past weekend, I decided to challenge my self and wear a Double Breasted jacket every day. Most guys don’t like to wear double breasted suits and blazers since they think it’s too old school or it never fits right. Well, I’m here to prove you wrong; the double breasted jacket is awesome and is a definite great addition to your sartorial wardrobe. To add to the fun, I also decided to take the opportunity and craft outfits for three of my favorite styles!
Lately we’ve been focusing on some editorial content, like wearing a polo with a suit or wearing a double breasted suit. It’s time to take a short break from my mouthpiece and take a look at what the guys have been wearing lately! While a majority of the outfits on this blog are sartorially themed, each of us put our personality into each of our outfits. They might all involve trousers, dress shoes, and button-up shirts, but it’s the unexpected pieces that truly mark our personal style.
Recently, I made a point to try out a MTM suit by Indochino, a custom suiting and shirt company started in 2007. I have seen other reviews of this service by Articles of Style, Dappered, and even the Young and Fine Gentleman. To try it out for myself, I saved up a couple hundred bucks and purchased a suit, made from the measurements I provided.
This holiday I was blessed to have an opportunity to take a vacation down South to New Orleans! I know this is a fashion blog, but I thought it would be cool to change it up and add some of my own experiences into the site’s content!
