It’s time to revisit one of the big reproduction companies, SJC.
Even though we don’t go into the parks anymore, we can always spare sometime to get dressed up for the original Dapper Day (at the expo, that is).
A little bit of London came to visit the most British part of Pasadena this past weekend.
I’ve been fighting the good fight to make polo shirts “cool” again. When the fit is right, the placket deep, and the collar wide, it can be a great substitute for a dress shirt and pairs naturally with a sportcoat and trousers. But what about denim?
It’s long, deal with it.
It’s been a while since we’ve done a post on actual style advice; a lot of the articles have been pretty educational as of late. Well, seeing as it’s summer, I thought that it would be pertinent to give of some ideas on how to dress. Something that we’ve loved doing to make an interesting outfit in hot weather (that has direct connotations to the 1930s-1940s) is by going high contrast.
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!
Now that we can agree that pleats are cool, it’s time to try them out. I noted in my previous article that it is difficult to obtain pleated pants with the necessary details (high rise, slim-straight). So when I was presented with an opportunity to try and tailor down some 1980’s baggy, double pleated pants, I took it. If it worked out, I may have found a way to get pleated pants at an affordable price! If not, I’ll be out a few bucks, but I know it can’t be done. Let’s find out!
