Decided to try some new chinos! They’ve got side adjusters, double forward pleats, and only cost $60!
I did alter them though, in order to make them a bit more my speed.
Time to be like a basic #menswear blogger and do that whole thing where we take one item and style it two different ways!
You’ve probably seen their amazing product photography on Instagram. Well, I was able to check it out in person. It was the first trunk show I’ve ever been to!
Expanding my casual side is definitely something I’ve been trying to do lately. If you follow me on Instagram or watch me closely on Male Fashion Advice, you’ll see that it’s been happening slowly but surely. As we get right into the beginning of “real summer”, there’s probably going to be a lot more of these posts since it’s the best way to try new ways to dress down.
Pleats and high waist pants are finally coming back into the minds of everyday people, being present at Pitti Uomo and other sartorial gatherings. Fashion isn’t always new, with discerning gentlemen always looking toward the golden age of menswear (1930-1960) for inspiration to their latest suits. B&Tailor has started offering a certain style of trouser that instantly screams 1940-1955: the drop loop pant.
Here’s a short little post on something super important to do after buying a suit. Nothing is ever good “simply off the rack”. No matter if you got it at Goodwill, H&M, or a high end store, a suit will always need tailoring. Why? Because you’re not a mannequin, you’re you. You have a unique body type, so something that was mass produced will not automatically look good. For this post, we’re going to focus on the length of your pants.
