This is a menswear blog. My menswear blog, to be exact. This is not a place for overt recommendations or reviews, but rather…whatever I feel like talking about. Over the years, I’ve developed fun and inquisitive approach to menswear, combining what I like best from vintage and contemporary-classic menswear. That’s why this site is one of the few that advocates spearpoint collars, high rise trousers, and wide lapels and maintains that they are still able to be worn today along side pieces like bucket hats and knit caps. It’s irreverent and discordant, but that’s me!
One main focus of this blog is the history of menswear. That’s why you’ll find a plethora of historical articles, photos, and illustrations to provide original context on a particular garment, detail, or style move. The other component is taking that garment or style move and placing it into a contemporary context- the vintage photos and catalogs are then joined by fits and photographs of some of the best dressers in the world, from enthusiasts to guys who work in the industry. Then it shows how I do it. Sometimes I wear the garment or do the style move exactly as intended. Other times, its different (but still looks good, trust me).
What you might see in this blog will challenge you. Topics can range from wearing your tie carelessly to wearing white socks with everything. And of course, some of my personal preferences show themselves n my writing, like my love affair with digital/film photography or how I like to paint. Hell, you’ll even see my adventures in Tokyo to profiles on friends I hang out with. So in essence, this menswear blog can end up being more than just about clothing. It’s really about me, with words and photographs of my choosing.
I just happen to wear cool clothes.
Always a pleasure,
