It seems that in the world of menswear, hats are a bit of a touchy subject. I think most of us agree that it’s an elegant piece that provides some old school vibes, but it’s difficult to put into practice. In those conversations, it’s mainly about fedoras and flat caps where the negative comments tend to be directed toward ballcaps and beanies. But truth be told, I really like the beanie.
I apologize for the ass shot, but these cinch-back trousers make it worth it. They’re definitely hard to find, as I’d only seen them in pictures and illustrations before now!
This ain’t sponsored, I just really like this thing.
Nothing says grandpa or old-man style like a sleeveless cardigan. And that’s exactly what I want, so I bought one!
Can you believe it’s taken me this long to finally get a basic, navy blue single breasted jacket?
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?
This past weekend, Spencer and I attended the Monsivais & Co Grand Opening party at their newly opened showroom in Highland Park. It was a great event, with some great style worn by the attendees.
We’ve been talking about eBay a lot lately, thanks to the 3 for $75 deal and the recent vintage Brooks Brothers sack suit. Even though eBay is highly curated (which makes it easy to find cool vintage pieces), nothing beats the thrill of hunting for cool stuff at thrift stores like Goodwill or Savers. My latest pick up was this amazing, almost-deadstock olive green sack jacket!
I got tired of people telling me that I can’t do this, so I decided to make this article. Long story short, you CAN put your hands in your jacket pockets. They’re your clothes; don’t be afraid to be comfortable in them. That’s what sprezzatura is about, right?
Last time we talked about the tattersall waistcoat, a garment with a checked pattern that instantly screams vintage when it’s worn with a suit or separates. For those of you looking for a throwback ivy style, the tattersall is for you. However, we here at Street x Sprezza are always looking for ways to look even older. Nothing screams 1930’s than a two-tone, patch pocket vest; unfortunately, they’re extremely rare to find in perfect vintage condition. When we heard that Simon James Cathcart was about to reproduce one in a heavy flannel, we jumped on it right away.
