I always advocate trying to make menswear look natural and easy by taking dorky pictures. Especially if it’s in the cool, LA Arts District. It’s just nice to be dressed up with your friends, acting like yourselves instead of as models who are paid to hold a bottle of soda.
That title is a mouthful, but it’s exactly what this beast of a jacket is. They really don’t make jackets like this anymore!
It seems that in the world of menswear, hats are a bit of a touchy subject. I think most of us agree that it’s an elegant piece that provides some old school vibes, but it’s difficult to put into practice. In those conversations, it’s mainly about fedoras and flat caps where the negative comments tend to be directed toward ballcaps and beanies. But truth be told, I really like the beanie.
Disclaimer: We received two complimentary ties and I decided to write about them.
Continuing our small coverage of affordable contemporary tie brands, I give you GENTL SUPPLY. They actually had to slide in my DMs since I literally shop for ties by searching “1930’s tie” on eBay. Go figure!
An elegant DB is a must for any classic or vintage menswear enthusiast. But do I taper the legs to make it more “timeless”?
We talked about doing interviews and features a long time ago, and I’m glad to finally bring that to the blog. Our first guest is Cody Wellema, of the Wellema Hat Co., who has an atelier that is literally five minutes from where I live.

Unlike the nocturnal escapades of Ben Stiller’s Larry Daley, the guys and I only spent an afternoon at the museum. Luckily, there we didn’t have any trouble from the tablet of Ahkmenrah.
Long post due to pictures!
Okay, maybe I should stop complaining about the lack of the cool menswear events here in LA because I went to a great one this past weekend at the Wellema Hat Co.
Rain in LA is like manna from heaven, since it seems that the state of California is perpetually on the brink of a drought. Other than giving us some much needed water, it also gives me a reason to break out my vintage trench coat.
