I returned to the city so nice that they named it twice (the other name is Manhattan)! This time, I decided to bring my friends along for a full vacation/menswear trip.
Do I even have to warn you how long this is going to be?
Warning: Extra freakin’ long blog post
NYC definitely beats LA in all aspects of classic menswear. Not only are there way more cool stores over there, but the young guys all dress the part as well. Here’s what I was able to document (as well as some of my own outfits).
On this next edition for “Inspiration for Less”, we take another look at the Armoury’s co-founder Mark Cho and recreate his outfit using less-expensive and thrifted items! This time, he wears something super simple: a blue jacket, white shirt, black tie, and grey trousers.
This past weekend, I decided to challenge my self and wear a Double Breasted jacket every day. Most guys don’t like to wear double breasted suits and blazers since they think it’s too old school or it never fits right.

To add to the fun, I also decided to take the opportunity and craft outfits for three of my favorite styles!
Nothing is more classic than the colors of blue, grey, and brown. They are staples that every man should have in his closet, whether they take form as a suit, sportcoat, pants, or even ties! This article recreates an outfit from the Armoury (and Brycelands Co) utilizing these classic colors. The fact that my outfit costs $300 while the other costs $3,000 is an added bonus.
