It may look like pretty vintage/1930’s in the picture above, but other than the tie, it’s all modern! I thought that it would be appropriate to finally write a post on how to dress in 1930-40s’s style in today’s time, making it easy to understand and without you having to buy too much “true vintage”!

Dapper Day x LACMA: Jazz and Vintage/Modern Menswear

DSC01527

It’s not everyday that that you get an email inviting you to be a host of an event. Imagine my surprise when Justin Jorgensen, creator and mastermind behind Dapper Day at Disneyland, invited me to be one for their collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The event revolved around two things: “Jazz at LACMA” (their weekly summer concert) and their latest exhibit, “Reigning Men: Fashion in Menswear, 1715-2015”.  It was Dapper Day x LACMA.

A Subdued Spring/Summer Pitti Uomo

Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual tradeshow and site of #menswear pilgrimage, has come and gone again.  Men of course were dressed in a variety of styles, whether they were classic like the Armoury boys or overly peacocking like AE Marmora.  Even though we couldn’t attend, my friends decided to be inspired and dress up.  Instead of going a bit crazy like we did last time,  we went with more subdued and classic styles.

Street Style at Spring Dapper Day 2016: Part 1

Just like the last few times, I went around and shot some cool looks that I saw at Dapper Day!  I know that this is a menswear blog, but I included some gals as well. Just remember that this is only a small sample of the crowds that showed up at Disneyland.

It is also important to understand that many of these people don’t dress up everyday.  Some of these people don’t know the rules of classical tailoring or true vintage style, but thats okay! Dapper Day isn’t Pitti Uomo or a New York Fashion week.  It’s about expressing your style and having fun!  Here’s the first half of the street style I shot.

I am a firm believer that suits can be dressed down. As spring has officially started here in America, it’s time to bring those sartorial pieces down a notch so you can keep cool and look good! One great and often misunderstood piece to turn your suits casual is the polo shirt.  It’s no longer just for academy uniforms or baggy business casual drones.

The Greatness of Going Double Breasted

IMG_2767

Worn by stylish gents of the 1930s-40s, the double breasted jacket is a garment that just screams “vintage”.  It’s still popular today among bespoke/classic menswear enthusiasts, but it still largely avoided by the mainstream menswear community.  It could be the fact that it’s pretty hard to find good ones out in the wild.  I’m here to tell you that this piece is worth the investment. It’s just so great.
