I don’t know what you expected- this [free] blog is done mainly by me (Ethan M. Wong) with a bit of contributions from Spencer (mainly in the form of pushback and a few inspo photos). But that’s what makes it fun. Each of us has our own style and approach to classic menswear, which certainly comes through in the variety of essays and images on this site. Feel free to follow us on Instagram to see what we’re up to or DM us if you ever have any questions!
And don’t forget to listen to the podcast.

Spencer Otte – Contributor
Spencer is a journalism student from Orange County who has been collecting vintage clothing since his freshman year of high school. Although his wardrobe consists primarily of pieces from the 1930s-1950s, he is slowly building a collection of contemporary, ivy inspired pieces. He source images for the blog and co-hosts the companion podcast, Style and Direction, which in turn inspires quite a few essays on this site. In his free time, he enjoys studying history and political theory (fucking nerd).
