I normally don’t advocate anything from the 1970’s, but I’ll have to make an exception for these shoes. The Wallace & Barnes P204 is the right amount of outrageous that I’ve needed to inject into my wardrobe!Read More
Time to be like a basic #menswear blogger and do that whole thing where we take one item and style it two different ways!
You’ve probably seen their amazing product photography on Instagram. Well, I was able to check it out in person. It was the first trunk show I’ve ever been to!
I’ve been fighting the good fight to make polo shirts “cool” again. When the fit is right, the placket deep, and the collar wide, it can be a great substitute for a dress shirt and pairs naturally with a sportcoat and trousers. But what about denim?
Absurdly long article on a garment that almost no menswear writer has touched on.
In the world of vintage casualwear, one article of clothing reigns supreme: the sportshirt. Because of its uniquely shaped collar (which lies flat and creates a notch, like a jacket’s lapel) it is commonly known on the internet as the Cuban or camp collar shirt. While the term loop collar has been thrown in the mix, it’s best known among true vintage enthusiasts and collectors as the sport shirt.
There have been a few articles written by other people on this subject, but none of have gone past the 1950s and 1960s in terms of history. We’re here to put the record straight on this classic piece of vintage menswear that was worn by men of all ages in a variety of different outfits.

Expanding my casual side is definitely something I’ve been trying to do lately. If you follow me on Instagram or watch me closely on Male Fashion Advice, you’ll see that it’s been happening slowly but surely. As we get right into the beginning of “real summer”, there’s probably going to be a lot more of these posts since it’s the best way to try new ways to dress down.
My love of high waisted trousers and pleats has finally culminated to me searching for ghurka shorts which feature a high rise and double forward pleats. Amazingly, they’re great and I wholeheartedly recommend them to you. Why wouldn’t you want something like these for your vintage or vintage inspired wardrobe?
