Even though we love going sartorial on the blog, we still have a passion for casual style. It’s been 80F for a full two weeks in Southern California and I’ve found myself ditching my ties for open collars and my sportcoats for rolled up shirt sleeves. We’ve talked about sartorial casual, but its always fun to take it down a notch further and wear tee shirts with trousers! It’s a topic we’ve explored 3 times in the past, but this one has a slight nautical twist. The look is perfect for hot days when even a button up is too much.
If you can’t already tell, I really document my casual outfits. At one end, I typically dress down a suit or blazer with a polo shirt. For the other side of the spectrum, I go full 1990’s inspired, with a faded sweater and some jeans and sneakers. For this article, I decided to delve more into into an outfit that is more “casually tailored”, a term frequented by style bloggers like Dan Trepanier. My version looks toward the cool summer/vacation styles of the 1930s-1950s, where tucked in shortsleeves were all the rage. It’s perfect for summer, since you’re probably looking to leave your long-sleeve shirts at home.
Usually I’m in some form of #menswear, whether it is a suit or a blazer. However, there are a few days when I’m actually dressed down. I’ve always been a fan of normcore and certain types of streetwear, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to show it off, even if it is a rare occassion. What do you think?
Birkenstocks have been a huge trend in men’s fashion as of late. Normally, sandals aren’t my typical faire, but since receiving them as a recent gift from my mom, I decided to try and incorporate them into my style!
Racks and racks of vintage suits, sportcoats, shirts, and ties from the 1900s all the way to the 1960’s; that’s what awaits you at Benny Reese’s house.
