On New Year’s Eve, I’m usually in pajamas playing video games. The night before, however, I’m in a vintage tuxedo, hanging out with my friends at the Cicada Club.
Time keep our layering theme going by visiting the deep reaches of my wardrobe and bringing out some cool, unique vintage outerwear!
Never thought I’d be a guy who wore camo, but I definitely caved. It’s now one of my favorite pieces to wear!
It’s taken 11 months for the LA weather to hit under 70F, so that means it’s time for actual fall/winter outfits. And what better way to do it than to bring back the Rollneck sweater.
If you don’t have a desire to wear vintage tailoring but want to achieve a vintage look, don’t worry- it’s as easy as wearing a striped shirt and patterned tie.
Instantly looks old school and displays a mastery over classic style, while still looking easy!
As I continue to be more intentional in my buying (instead of buying random thrifts for the sake of tailoring), I’ve decided that my money could be better used on obtaining grails, both for wear and use in a bespoke reproduction. One of the first ones was the 1930’s brown SB patch pocket suit (with gorgeous lapels). This jacket was the next one.
Vintage, pre-1970’s brown herringbone sack suits from Brooks Brothers are pretty hard to come by. Well, Spencer and I found two!
