A “Mad Men” Evening feat. Spencer and Jay

It is my belief that the rise of menswear in this modern era has its roots in the critically-acclaimed show “Mad Men”.  Guys started wearing suits more, putting a pocket square in that razor thin square fold, and even brought the fedora back in some circles.  A while ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Spencer and Jay, the most well dressed high schoolers I know.   They love the show and carefully evoke the style in their outfits.  As we had a swell dinner at South Coast Plaza, I just had to snap some pictures of these guys!

The Art of the T-Shirt

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.

2. Use patterns to set each piece apart!

Styles of the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo

This weekend I was able to go to the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo in Downtown Los Angeles.  Vintage fashion is a personal hobby of mine.  While I do love wearing modern clothes, there is something about the cut and patterns of the 1920s-1950’s that interest me.  So this weekend, I went to the Expo wearing one of my favourite and most unique vintage pieces.  I was also able to snap a few shots of people’s fashion  that I enjoyed!
