Call it the vacation look, the vintage throwback, or whatever you like. It’s something that we’re doing to keep stylish and cool as LA gets into the July heat!

It’s long, deal with it.
It’s been a while since we’ve done a post on actual style advice; a lot of the articles have been pretty educational as of late. Well, seeing as it’s summer, I thought that it would be pertinent to give of some ideas on how to dress. Something that we’ve loved doing to make an interesting outfit in hot weather (that has direct connotations to the 1930s-1940s) is by going high contrast.

Nothing is really ever new in menswear. The first “recent” trend to come back was the high waist and pleats , though I’ve been wearing those two for years thanks to vintage clothing. The next trend that has been sweeping the contemporary menswear circles isn’t really a design thing, but an affectation on how you wear your shirt collar. The thing is, this has been done since the 1920’s and continues to be done by veterans of the vintage community.
Pitti Uomo (for Spring/Summer) has come and gone and like always, a plethora of street style pictures have flooded the internet.

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.
