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!
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!

It’s been over a year since I’ve purchased an Made-to-Measure suit from Indochino. Now I realized that there were many issues with my first suit made from them, even though I got measured by their own sales associates in their store. The suit looked pretty good after tailoring (and I did get another suit made from them) but I decided not to try them again until I had the money and desire for another suit. Now that I’ve had sometime to learn more about fit, details, and my overall desired aesthetic, I thought I’d save up and give them other try! I also realized that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe: I didn’t own a plain, navy blue double breasted suit. So I deleted my measurements, got measured by my friend Spencer, and bought a suit on Black Friday. It’s basically a whole new review on Indochino.
While the rest of the world may be cooling down for fall, my forecast says that it will be 90 degrees this weekend! In fact, it was 91F when I went to work at the time of this article. So, I decided to go with a something summery without standing out too much. Curtis Newkirk, from Beckett & Robb served as the inspiration for this outfit!
I’ll admit that sneakers weren’t always my thing. At first, I looked down upon sneakers as a plebian shoe, only meant for people who couldn’t handle suits and dressy clothes. Then I matured and learned through GQ and MFA that sneakers are actually very versatile and can work with a lot of different outfits. My first real foray into the sneaker world was the Nike killshot. For my second sneaker purchase, I went back to J. Crew and got their Onitsuka Tiger in navy blue suede. At $50 bucks, it’s my new favourite sneaker.
Three weeks ago, Suit Supply teased their new ad campaign “Toy Boys” with an odd picture of a model’s sunglasses clad head peaking out from a woman’s mouth. Seemed pretty funny and odd, just like the very effective Old Spice commercials. However, this was completely wrong. 9 hours ago, they started unveiling their latest ad campaign on Instagram. And it is terrible, not to mention very NSFW.
