Oh boy I can’t wait for the shitstorm that’s about to erupt from this one.
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.
I’ll admit that sneakers weren’t always my thing. At first, I looked down upon sneakers as a plebian shoe, only meant for people who couldn’t handle suits and dressy clothes. Then I matured and learned through GQ and MFA that sneakers are actually very versatile and can work with a lot of different outfits. My first real foray into the sneaker world was the Nike killshot. For my second sneaker purchase, I went back to J. Crew and got their Onitsuka Tiger in navy blue suede. At $50 bucks, it’s my new favourite sneaker.
I’m going to start a new feature: reviews! I’ll talk about my latest purchase and throw on a quick outfit to show it off! So for my first review I give you the Nike Killshot by J. Crew. Read More
Like we said before in our preppy post, khaki is one of the colors everyone should absolutely own in their wardrobe. However, sometimes buying “off the rack” doesn’t help. Everyone has a different body type, so what works for one may not work on the other. So for this challenge, we both took a pair of khakis , tailored them and then put on a quick outfit to show you just how amazingly diverse and amazing khaki trousers are. And as always, we’d like to know which style you liked better.
Even though it’s winter, it has been quite warm in California. And when its warm, nothing feels and looks cool like white pants. Rajesh, Christian, and I decided to don our own white trousers and have a common theme of green. Though we’re wearing the same colors, we each put our outfits together to ensure that our individuality remains.
