As a menswear guy who loves tailoring and got his start wearing period accurate vintage, I had no place for sneakers in my wardrobe. Now they’re a welcome alternative to loafers for me, being worn with jeans and shorts to even full trousers.
It helps if you understand the different types of sneakers out there and how they fit into different vibes of classic menswear. Hopefully this proves useful to me; if not, you can just look at the great pictures!
We may not be able to hang out and dress up with friends in real life, but luckily my friends and I all have a game that allows us to do that on an island paradise.
And to my surprise, the clothing offered was amazing. Even better than my own closet in some cases!
Up until college, I wore hoodies and sweatshirts all the time. Suddenly, I cast them away, finding them lazy and illfitting for a gentleman in tailoring.
Then after years of breaking that cringey mindset, I find myself wearing them again, this time with a new mentality and method that would have melted 2013 Ethan’s Gatbsy-loving brain.
I thought I was done after I filled my closet with spearpoints, OCBDS, and sportshirts. “What else could there be that I could wear”, I asked myself.
The answer lies in this long blog post. And yes, these new shirts fit in perfectly with my style.
Sometimes shit happens. And sometimes it happens to your favorite OCBD.
It’s time to get even edgier and wear some fun pants with tailoring.
It’s about time that my casual attire has gotten it’s own article. It’s certainly changed a lot throughout the years, becoming an entity that’s almost entirely separate than my sartorial outfits.
I can’t believe it took menswear to get me to return to a childhood hobby.
