Just like the last few times, I went around and shot some cool looks that I saw at Dapper Day!  I know that this is a menswear blog, but I included some gals as well. Just remember that this is only a small sample of the crowds that showed up at Disneyland.

It is also important to understand that many of these people don’t dress up everyday.  Some of these people don’t know the rules of classical tailoring or true vintage style, but thats okay!

Valentine’s Day is this coming Weekend and it’s important to look good.  Last time we explored the different outfits for different occasions.   This year we’re going a little different.  While we normally have a pro-tie stance, sometimes it’s best to go against the grain and ditch the tie.  However, the lack of tie doesn’t give you an excuse to dress down!   Here are some tie-less looks that can work best for any of your Valentine’s Day plans!
