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.
I won’t tolerate any French jokes. Well, maybe just one. How could you not?Read More
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”?

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.
On New Year’s Eve, I’m usually in pajamas playing video games. The night before, however, I’m in a vintage tuxedo, hanging out with my friends at the Cicada Club.
It’s taken 11 months for the LA weather to hit under 70F, so that means it’s time for actual fall/winter outfits. And what better way to do it than to bring back the Rollneck sweater.
If you don’t have a desire to wear vintage tailoring but want to achieve a vintage look, don’t worry- it’s as easy as wearing a striped shirt and patterned tie.
Instantly looks old school and displays a mastery over classic style, while still looking easy!
As I continue to be more intentional in my buying (instead of buying random thrifts for the sake of tailoring), I’ve decided that my money could be better used on obtaining grails, both for wear and use in a bespoke reproduction. One of the first ones was the 1930’s brown SB patch pocket suit (with gorgeous lapels). This jacket was the next one.
