Always a pleasure to be invited to the latest Dapper Day x LACMA event! This time they celebrate their latest exhibit, which centers on famed British painter David Hockney and his 82 Portraits & 1 Still Life.
There’s also some great candids and portraits of our own that I hope will serve as an editorial/lookbook of sorts.
I’ve always wanted to do a lookbook, so we did one. Sorta.
It’s always nice to treat yourself for a pair of custom trousers. Today, we review my latest purchase: chocolate brown peached cotton from Stóffa.
A little bit of London came to visit the most British part of Pasadena this past weekend.
Disclaimer: I received a tie in exchange for this review.
I was recently approached by William of Mr. Jenks to do a review on his Irish Poplin ties. As I have little to no experience with contemporary ties, I knew that I had to take him up on his offer.
Vintage, pre-1970’s brown herringbone sack suits from Brooks Brothers are pretty hard to come by. Well, Spencer and I found two!
I am always on the search for “softly tailored” garments: little/no shoulder padding, unstructured and barely any lining. In fact, it is this detail that gives contemporary tailoring a slight edge over vintage pieces for me. When the two are combined however, you best know that I’ll be all over it. I think I just found the perfect casual vintage suit!
