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

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



“Denim on Denim for some dressed up workwear today. On a side-note, I’m in the middle of reading both of Ron Currie Jr.’s books. I highly recommend them, especially if you like Vonnegut and being sad.”



“I love this jacket. It’s super lightweight and waterproof, perfect for the unpredictable weather of NYC.”



“Vintage olive leather bomber and a cheap plaid shacket slimmed-up by our friends at The Tailoring Room. More on them Monday, at least according to our current content schedule…”



“Vintage shawl sweater and navajo vest, both hitting the TSB SHOP soon. That is, if Gabe and I ever finish the e-commerce buildout…”

Blaise Staab


My friend and former Columbia basketball teammate Blaise stopped by the studio today. He was one of my first personal shopping “clients” back in college, and one of the reasons I was encouraged to start writing TSB. Now the handsome devil is killing it in denim on denim, a vintage scarf and beat-up Red Wings.


Thanks for reading,

The TSB Team

    Dan. Beautiful Navajo print vest.

  • Anonymous

    @Wes: which colorway are these Clarks ?

    • http://www.tsbmen.com Westley Dimagiba

      beeswax colorway, I’ve had them for quite some time now so they’re really worn out.

  • Ace F.

    Blaise got this one.

  • Tjay

    Wes’s layering is perfect but I have to give it to Dan on this one…

  • Max

    How do you get a scarf knot like the one on Blaise?

    • Vic

      Seems to be a regular loose once-around drape

  • http://undefined Domino

    Dan takes it! Btw: You called that forthcoming Native American movement in fashion WELL BEFORE any top designer(s)…people called you crazy…but now I’m seeing Native American gear everywhere (even H&M). Gonna start callin’ you Trepanstradamus!I might have to ask you fill out my NCAA bracket next month, Trepanstradamus! :) Keep up the great work, my man!

  • Jeremiah


    And since everything else has already been complimented about your outfit, I’ll mention the pants: great fit, great color, and they look really comfortable.

  • JJMD


  • Eugene


  • TO

    Dan. Nice belt.

  • Justin

    Towni. I really like that shirt and tie combo.

  • http://undefined Jack

    These cameos are throwing a wrench in the gears, but I’ve got to give my vote to Alex.

  • Joe

    This was a hard one. I’m going with Towni by a nose.

  • Adyna


  • John

    Wes. The leather jacket is awesome and I like the contrast of the shorter jacket over the longer shirt. Also, way to tease us for the next post!

  • Adam


  • HM

    Blaise, with Townsend a close second.

  • Kyle

    For me it’s Dan today. That vest reminds me of Northern Exposure in the best of ways!

  • Alan

    I will go with Towni, but with a caveat – the jacket is bringing everything together here, take it off and I’m less sure about some of the combinations.

  • http://greenspree.ca Andy Collier


  • AGT

    Towni with the win- the lettuce seals the deal.

  • Anu

    Towni, great shirt-tie combo.

  • Dex

    Towni looking fresh. Where did you get that jacket?!

  • Brooks

    Dan or Blaise. Dan’s layers are great, and I love the vintage vest. Blaise’s tailored tonal look is equally gnar. I can’t decide. Flip a coin for me.

  • horsemaster

    Alex has been putting in a strong performance recently, but Townis’ shirt/tie combo is a winner.


  • Orlando Lee


  • AK

    Dan hands down today.

  • Jake

    Townsend today

  • Tony

    Towni wins… But PLEASE stop posing with your foot like that. It’s not cool.

  • Brady

    Denim on denim day..
    Towni FTW today. Very clean

  • Ben

    Wes takes it.

  • Kiel

    Towni for sure! I want a coat like that for spring/fall. It’s still too cold here for anything light.

  • Danilo


  • Ali


  • http://undefined Ray

    All great looks today! Nice touches of red for V-day. Thank you, all of you, for inspiring my own style.

    1.) Towni – This look is top notch and the one I most relate to – Where is that jacket from? 2.)Wes – You are the King of Layers! Im taking notes! 3.)Dan – That Navajao vest is awesome! 4.)Blaise – love the different shades/textures of blue. 5.)Alex – thanks for the tip on the reading material!

  • Jerome

    Alex, beautiful silhouette!

  • LouCaves

    I was torn between Townsend and Blaise. Howwever, the double monk straps was the tipper for me.

    Winner: Townsend

  • Corin C

    Wes for the shoes

  • Gary-A

    At risk of people thinking I vote exclusively for Towni…

    Going with Blaise for his nice peacoat and scarf.

    @Towni: Which color is that Uniqlo coat? Blue or black? The blue on their website looks purple as hell.

    Also liking the subtle American flag shirt/tie combo.

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      We were actually just talking about this in the office… It’s like a weird navy/charcoal color. I don’t think they have it online. The dark green is probably a solid bet though. Thanks for reading and for the (almost) vote!

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        I’m pretty convinced it’s black. Which makes Towni like it less, and me like it more.

        • John

          What’s with you and black lately?!

  • cam

    also I hope blaise has some dirt on u dan after linking that pic of him

    • Alex

      Andre Drummond!

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        Pretty sure my man Blaise caught him with a mean elbow under the glass…

        • Matty

          Major Blaiser

  • cam

    dan today…..on an entirely different note, where is the tsb team Harlem shake video already?

  • http://www.twitter.com/iPodschun Derric

    Towni. It’s the shirt.

  • http://undefined Luke

    Wes for me today, followed by Alex.

  • Ben

    Dan. Great vest!

  • Nico

    1. Blaise
    2. Wes
    3. Towni
    4. Dan
    5. Alex

  • Rob A

    I’m not really a fan of layering button up on button up but Wes’ look is changing my mind.
    Very clean look. Wes

  • The Other TO


  • Kevin

    Townsend. That jacket is super flattering!

  • Bob


    Please give my wardrobe an extreme makeover!

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Hi Bob. Are you in NYC? Would you be interested in being featured in an upcoming TSB Upgrade post?

      • Bob

        Austin, TX. But definitely interested if it were somehow possible to do anyway.

      • Ali

        I’ll be in NYC for a week in March… I’ll let you revamp my style.

  • Raye

    Hi! I’m going to go for Blaise today because I think his coat is amazing and it blends really well with his outfit. Second would be Dan, as his sweater is to die for. Cheers
