Everyone knows that I’m a big proponent of high rise trousers. They make you look slimmer and make your legs look longer; you can’t lose while wearing them! However, you can’t wear trousers everyday. Even I don’t do that. There are days when I wear jeans, but I seldom wear them with tailored clothing (button ups, jackets, etc) due to the fact that most jeans out there have a super low rise. I had tried on some vintage denim that had a high-rise but it was way out of price range. However Levis came through with the 501 CT line, which have become my go to jean.
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!
We’ve been looking at The Armoury for a long time now, with a majority of my outfits focusing on recreating ones by Dick Carroll. As a result, it has been ivy focused, with repp stripes and oxford shirts. For this article, I’m going to be recreating one of my favorite outfits of all time, worn by one of the first Armourers: Jake Grantham.
Because this is a blog, and not a newspaper, I’ve decided to focus more on individual outfits and blog about them. Doing so creates more content for my readers and lets go more indepth on why I picked what I wore and how I came up with it! Without further ado, here’s Street x Sprezza’s first entry into our new weekly series “Inspiration for Less”. And who better to be inspired by than Chad Park?
Sweaters have been around for a long time. Today, guys mainly wear them two ways: as a replacement shirt (crew neck) or as a layering item for business casual (v-neck). Don’t get me wrong, sweaters are great! However, there is something about the styles and patterns of vintage sweaters that make them such an awesome piece for me. They go great with more formal clothes, to give you that smart, “vintage” look!
Everyone loves a great Christmas sweater. They’re festive, colorful, and instantly adds fun to any Holiday party. Now, not many guys have one (or want to), so we’re going to look at a few outfits from the regulars at Street x Sprezza and see how they use both traditional Christmas patterns and normal sweaters to create an outfit for those upcoming Holiday parties!
I’m going to start a new feature: reviews! I’ll talk about my latest purchase and throw on a quick outfit to show it off! So for my first review I give you the Nike Killshot by J. Crew. Read More
Fourth of July just passed and we decided to showcase some classic American style to show our Patriotism! Even though our country isn’t perfect, it’s still a great time to show some patriotism by using our outfits to showcase our country’s colours and styles of yesteryear!
