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?
Pitti Uomo, the bi-annual tradeshow and site of #menswear pilgrimage, has come and gone again. Men of course were dressed in a variety of styles, whether they were classic like the Armoury boys or overly peacocking like AE Marmora. Even though we couldn’t attend, my friends decided to be inspired and dress up. Instead of going a bit crazy like we did last time, we went with more subdued and classic styles.
Contrary to popular belief, there are times when I get inspiration from people other than tailors, designers, and other sartorial enthusiasts. When going casual, I often look to my friends for outfit ideas. Thanks to MFA on reddit, I’ve been able to become friends with Matt, who is one of the best and most creatively dressed people I’ve come to know. He is my inspiration for this post.
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.
