I went to J. Crew and thought I’d write about things I liked!
Note: This isn’t really sponsored, but I’ll explain more within the post.
Is it bad that I like this look? I promise that I’m not a douche.
Most of the time.
A little bit of London came to visit the most British part of Pasadena this past weekend.
Drake’s London is one of my favorite RTW companies that I’ve discovered during the course of my blogging. I think I’ve mentioned it many times (here especially), but their ties are probably the closest I’ve seen to 1930’s style ones especially due to the fact that they are usually untipped with handrolled edges. Overall, I’ve been a fan of the Drake’s style and I decided to dress in their style for this blog post! Not every brand (or blog) can advocate these three pieces to be worn together: a sportcoat, denim, and a sweater vest.
We love to wear sportcoats. Suits definitely have their place, but we typically like to wear odd jackets and odd trousers just for the sake of being able to combine different colors and patterns. As most people know, the most versatile sportcoat is the navy one; it’s used as a grounding device to play with other pieces. Numerous fashion blogs talk about the navy blazer, but we’re different. We like classic clothes, but that doesn’t mean boring! Instead of the expected #menswear spiel , we’re going to show you some cool NON-NAVY sportcoats that happen to feature one of our favorite details: patch pockets.
There are a lot of controversial things that this blog advocates. Spear point collars, collar bars, high rise trousers, and white socks are just a few of those pieces! Whether you wear these things together or incorporate one, you end up with a cool vintage look that sets your sartorial game apart from everyone else. Now it’s time to talk about another addition to “Ethan’s Favorite Things”: the fair isle sweater vest.
On this next edition for “Inspiration for Less”, we take another look at the Armoury’s co-founder Mark Cho and recreate his outfit using less-expensive and thrifted items! This time, he wears something super simple: a blue jacket, white shirt, black tie, and grey trousers.
