I don’t go out drinking often (if at all), but when I do, it’s with people who like vintage fashion.
It’s official guys. I’M A HOST FOR DAPPER DAY.
I’ve always loved vintage jackets. They’re full of character and details that you can just seldom find today! We’ve talked about Field Jackets and leather jackets before, but there’s one king for lightweight casual wear and that’s the gabardine (gab) short jacket. It’s a versatile piece that can serve you well, whether you’re in tailoring or something extremely casual.

It’s been over a year since I’ve purchased an Made-to-Measure suit from Indochino. Now I realized that there were many issues with my first suit made from them, even though I got measured by their own sales associates in their store. The suit looked pretty good after tailoring (and I did get another suit made from them) but I decided not to try them again until I had the money and desire for another suit. Now that I’ve had sometime to learn more about fit, details, and my overall desired aesthetic, I thought I’d save up and give them other try! I also realized that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe: I didn’t own a plain, navy blue double breasted suit. So I deleted my measurements, got measured by my friend Spencer, and bought a suit on Black Friday. It’s basically a whole new review on Indochino.
I’m always on the lookout for cheap, vintage suits. You’re guaranteed to find great suits at vintage stores like Joyride or from sellers like Benny, but there’s nothing like the feeling like scoring a great piece at a thrift store. If you look hard enough and have great patience, you can definitely find some cool stuff! And sometimes, you’ll find it on a sale day where your suit will cost $3.
It’s time to put away the coats and scarves, because spring is finally here! Even though the heat is slowly picking up, it’s still pretty windy out there, ensuring some chilly nights. This doesn’t mean you have to dress down, however; look at this as an opportunity to try some new looks! Today, the team brings you some great outfits to break out this Spring!
One big question I get asked often is “do you even wear t-shirts”. Usually the question implies two things: that I am incapable of dressing down and that a t-shirt is reserved for being ultra-casual or lazy. This post is designed to tell you that this isn’t the case. A t-shirt isn’t just for “bum days” or athletic wear; this important piece of clothing can be dressed down or dressed up at will and will always help you look fantastic. Today, we will talk about how a t-shirt supposed to fit and show you eight different ways you can get the most out of it.
