Oh man. Nothing like two (nearly) back to back events filled with meat and negronis. LA had its hands full of menswear this past weekend!
Warning: LONG ASS BLOG POST
It’s not everyday that a film takes place in the 1930’s, but when there is, we’ve definitely gotta talk about the fashion!
The last time I went into downtown Los Angeles, I shot some new friends and wore some classic menswear, ranging from ivy style to a modern interpretation of 1930’s tailoring. However, I decided to change things up this time. I thought I would be fun to show more of our casual side, this time even more dressed down than our previous post on vintage casual. Our plans for the Broad didn’t work out, so we were able to explore and shoot next door at the wonderfully photogenic Walt Disney Concert Hall.
A few weeks ago, I was able to watch Kingsman, a British spy/comedy movie. In the movie, Colin Firth’s character “Galahad” (his Kingsman codename), repeatedly said “manners maketh man” before he kicked some bad guy butt. Throughout the film, there were many references to gentlemanly fashion, such as “oxfords, not brogues” (oxfords are plain, while brogues have the wingtip design) and the importance of a well tailored suit. In fact, the suits in the universe of the film were even bulletproof! Here, I show off two outfits inspired by two characters from the film: Galahad and Merlin.
