Rule #1 of the TSB Office: Bring Your “A” Game.

Comment below to let us know which outfit is your favorite!



“When I walked into the office this morning and saw that everyone else wore a suit to work I was all like ‘Whatever, I’m on my Sandlot sh-t.’”



“Listen Alex, I only wore the vest and pants today…smartass.”



“Banker shirt, DB, Crocs. Straight Ballin.”



“Shades of grey today.”



Thanks for reading,

The TSB Team

    WES took the lead, with some cool matching.. Love the jacket n vest combination.

  • Jonathan

    Wes has done it again for me. Especially with that jacket….
    on another note Alex keep doing your thing I dig the sand lot look alot seeing as I dress like that often being at a University. Your style is what I can relate to on a daily basis. Let the haters hate. I DIG BEAT UP VANS!

  • Alex

    Wes. I love the juxtaposition of the three piece seperates with the bomber jacket.

  • Stephen


  • Tom

    Has got to be Wes. Alex, love the vans but dirty sneakers are a bit like dirty underpants… (get a new pair)

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      I disagree. Simple canvas sneakers like vans or chucks look better beat-up, in my opinion.

  • Orlando Lee

    Double breasted suits always win so Dan got the W

  • Zach

    WES - i WANT that jacket! love it. so cool with the outfit.

  • DP

    Towns–simple but killin it. then dan.

  • Andres

    Towni for overall.
    The best shoes go to Wes.

    The most horrific shoes goes to Alex…whats up with that?

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      The cream Vans are my staple sneaks. Been rocking those since 9th grade, I think this is my twelfth pair. To be fair I did experiment with some Navy Vans in there at some point.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        Alex is a great example of being crafty with what he’s got…like summer shoes with winter socks for example.

  • tim


  • Eugene

    Real close match between Dan and Wes, but I gotta give it to Dan! Really considering getting a DB suit as my next purchase.

  • Jack


  • Ben

    Wes for those awesome saddle shoes, then Towni. Digging those glasses!

  • Jim


  • Shawn

    Dan, your DB suit today looks straight ballin’, all that’s missing is a fur overcoat and a cane, and maybe a cool hat! Just kidding, I totally love your suit!

  • ian

    dan once again this is a look I feel he truly “owns” he has put in the time and has busted his ass now he is truly a “boss” and has a right to wear a DB unlike most young guys you see wearing them. wes’s look sort of frightens me… no offense but you wear that jacket alot when it really only works in a few contexts… if I were you I would flip it on ebay for a 100+ and try to find another more understated biker or preferably bomber, but I mean do you, it just screams 70′s disco pimp more than refined outwear that belong over 2/3 of a suit. I would put alex in second, I respect that he stays true to his roots and that chore jacket is just plain killer…

    • Ed

      Can I place first bid on that jacket?
      Wes is the winner for me today, totally boss.

      • http://thestyleblogger.com Westley Dimagiba

        I’ll consider it… what ya got? hah

  • Jill O’Hearn


  • TO

    Dan today.

    I see you though Wes.

  • Daniel

    Wes, then Dan.

  • William

    Towni has my pick. Keeping it real classy…and classic.

  • HM

    Wes. At this point, not a lot of looks challenge me to think about style in a new way, but this one does. And this site definitely does that more often than any other.
    Townsend’s a solid second with a more conservative look – shirt/tie pairing looks like something I’d choose.

  • Mr E

    My vote goesto the quiet strength of Townsend’s look but those crocodile shoes are another matter entirely.

    Here is how much I find them so: http://i47.tinypic.com/xc8zgw.jpg

  • Kris


  • Gazman

    Dan – very Michael Corleone!

  • Julius

    Towni…but I do love Wes’s leather jacket suit combo!!

  • Henri

    Can’t decide between Wes & Dan!

  • Aaron Leonard

    Towni………. for the win

  • Mike

    Towni got the win this week! Followed by Alex.

    • Mike

      woops, No disrespect to Alex but I meant Wes

  • Charlie

    Wes definitely, perfect for this frigid weather

  • JVAR

    Alex. He looks like my first boyfriend. I was in Pre-K and he was in Kindergarten.

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      This makes me uncomfortable.

  • Sam

    Townsend for the win with the perfect modern minimalism. Matching the pocket square to your shoes is genius!

  • Justin

    Town killed it. I want details on Alex’s jacket

  • Dave

    Wes first. Love the blue colour and great shoes. Townsend 2nd. Wicked specs

  • J Saltzman

    But hey, Alex you’re the Sultan of Swat!

    In 2012, a crack commando unit was sent to Men’s Wearhouse by the fashion police for a faux pas they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security stockist to the New York underground. Today, still wanted by the fashionistas, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem…if no one else can help…and if you can find them…maybe you can hire…The A-Team.


    Dan Trepanier as John ‘Hannibal’ Smith. The Man with The Plan… and the ability to put together 3.1 trillion disguises with just 25 well-curated pieces. This clever son-of-a-farmer escaped by working humbly as the prison barber, sheep-shearing cellmates Macko and Wooster (insert Gillette™ ad here), then using the vacuumed clippings and his wits to fashion a surprisingly versatile detachable faux-fur collar enabling him to impersonate the high-status Chief Prison Warden and glide like a boss out the front door, grin and stogie on his lips.

    Townsend Smith as Templeton “The Faceman” Peck. A face so damn handsome no one even notices he’s pairing fine herringbone blazers with raggedy old jorts. Escaped by winking at the female guards and subtly informing each of them of his intention to take on a girlfriend after Christmas. Slipped out unnoticed during the ensuing catfight.

    Alex Crawford as H.M. “Howling Mad” Murdock. Kooky but crafty Southerner, said to be a few riveted buttons short of a full denim camicia di forza (known stateside as a Texas turtleneck). Escaped by hunting down the prison’s rodentia, tastily BBQing ‘em up for his cafeteria duties, then surreptitiously cobbling an ingenious bottle opener/shoe horn/skeleton key out of the remains.


    Mr. D as B.A. Baracus. Known for his goodnatured yet badass attitude and distinctive inverted mohawk (a.k.a. widow’s peak) hairstyle. Escaped by clipping his long, thick, magnificent mane to weave a sturdy rope enabling him to swing Tarzan-style across the crocodile-infested moat. Earned a place in Dan’s heart (and sole) by snagging a croc-skin in the process and pairing it with tasteful ivory & gold hardware thrifted from the lustrous pirate teeth of inmate Crangi.

    (TSBmen: consider http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/93/Ateam.jpg for WIWT on April 1 or October 31. :-)

    With affection and respect. :)

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      This is so awesome.

      • Brooks

        Seconded. Wes, by the way.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Hahaha maybe our best comment ever

    • Khalid

      Thanks guys! I omitted the part where Dan transmuted the prison stripes into the pinstripes you see here, simply by bringing in the sides, adding flaps to the pockets, and sewing six bottlecaps onto the front. Just in case he finds himself needing to employ that tactic again…

      I believe I’ve found some rare shots of the interior of your van…

  • Luke

    Townsend, with Wes and Dan close behind.

  • Herbert Morrison

    Dan str8 up n’ down…heavy in the game.

  • AK


  • Pete

    Hey Townsend, shine your shoes.

  • Daja

    Wes then Townsend

  • Joe

    Dan wins, just not fair with those crocs. I’ve always like croc (or even better, alligator) belly on boots, but not so much on dress shoes. They just never seemed to come out just right. Not so on those pair, they picked just the right size scales – beautiful pair of shoes.

  • Ishaan

    Dan, killing it with the DB pinstripe. I need one of those. Correction: Every sartorially inclined chap needs one of those.

  • DJ


  • Aleks

    Townsend hands down, great composition.

  • JeffGreg

    Wes, then Dan. The bomber is just too fresh.

  • John

    It’s a toe between Dan and Townsend for me.
    (Dan is channeling his inner Gordon Gekko!)

  • Brian


  • Kiel

    Gotta give Wes some love here. Look at that effin’ shoe/jacket combo.

    Townsend looks really good too.

  • Sundown aka Bob


    Alex, I have that shirt, too!

  • Sonny

    Alex, simply because I can relate to his “more casual than the rest of the office” outfits!

  • Jason

    Townsend, definitely. Dan’s looking sharp, too, as always.

  • Brady

    Def Dan w/ the db pinstripes and the new crocs! Killer

  • cam

    gotta stick with the boss

  • Marcus Forlan

    Gotta go w Dan the Boss.

    I was thinking the crocs put his look over the top, but that is the point!

  • Ashley

    Townsend kills it here.

  • Johann

    Alex because everybody elses is too tight :)

  • mon

    wes, without the jacket in 2nd

  • Josh

    Townsend, then Dan.
