I am a big fan of vintage clothing. They’re filled with so much character that you just can’t find today! Unless you go bespoke or completely custom, there’s no way you’re going to get specific lapels, particular cuts/designs, or even cool fabric. Vintage is a staple of my wardrobe and I am always on the lookout for something cool to add into my rotation! Outerwear and sweaters in particular are a great way to add some vintage pizzaz into your own outfits. A few articles ago we talked about the vintage M-43 field jacket and the Fair Isle Sweater vest. This time we’re going to look at a vintage Cowichan sweater.
There a bunch of places that I look to for inspiration. If you haven’t noticed, most are taken from the social media profiles of my favorite tailors and haberdashers. This time we look at one of the oldest places men got their style inspiration from: fashion illustrations.
Usually I’m in some form of #menswear, whether it is a suit or a blazer. However, there are a few days when I’m actually dressed down. I’ve always been a fan of normcore and certain types of streetwear, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to show it off, even if it is a rare occassion. What do you think?
This weekend, Spencer and I went to Inspiration LA, a huge vintage gathering in Southern California. At the REEF in Downtown Los Angeles, multitudes of dealers selling vintage apparel, reproduction garments, and other crafts come together to present their wares to the public.
Everyone loves a great Christmas sweater. They’re festive, colorful, and instantly adds fun to any Holiday party. Now, not many guys have one (or want to), so we’re going to look at a few outfits from the regulars at Street x Sprezza and see how they use both traditional Christmas patterns and normal sweaters to create an outfit for those upcoming Holiday parties!
This weekend I was able to go to the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo in Downtown Los Angeles. Vintage fashion is a personal hobby of mine. While I do love wearing modern clothes, there is something about the cut and patterns of the 1920s-1950’s that interest me. So this weekend, I went to the Expo wearing one of my favourite and most unique vintage pieces. I was also able to snap a few shots of people’s fashion that I enjoyed!
Continuing our new feature, Raj and I bring you a classic preppy pattern: the nautical stripe. Even though Rajesh and I like to dress up (and even have some of the same clothes) we each have our own unique style. So we decided to do a challenge: let’s keep the same shirt pattern but we have to try and make it our own. So let us know what you think in the comments below! Who did wear it best?
