Bryceland’s Co & Ethan Newton

IMG_5986

Visiting Bryceland’s was an incredible experience because it allowed me not only to see the store which has inspired me so much in recent years, but also because of the opportunity to meet one of my style icons.

I can only hope that I acted as chill as I thought I was being.  Probably not.

Going to Inspiration LA 2017

IMG_7641
The guys and I are no stranger to vintage clothing.  Whether it’s true vintage suits  or even putting together something “vintage casual”, we definitely love vintage.  While the former has a very niche following (the vintage community as I affectionately call it), the latter is huge in the mainstream society.  With loop collar shirts, cool sweaters, and straight/wide selvedge denim, this special breed of vintage enthusiast is typically what most people tend to go for when they want a “vintage look”.  There isn’t a huge tradeshow like Pitti Uomo, Inspiration LA is the event to go to if you like that look.  It’s certainly a great place to go to see some of the coolest vintage pieces (that still exist) as well as some of the best dressed guys in the world that aren’t in suits.

Dressing Like Drake’s: Denim, Sportcoat, and Sweater Vest

IMG_6026

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.

Wearing Non-Navy, Patch Pocket Sportcoats

IMG_6063
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.

The Levi’s 501 CT: High Rise Selvedge Denim

IMG_8608
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.
