If you’re a longtime reader of TSB, you might recognize Brady O’Callahan from his internship interview a few years ago. The Ohio native had just graduated from Ohio State University and moved to NYC to pursue improv comedy, while simultaneously exploring his interest in menswear.
“I moved to New York to study improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre and pretty quickly got immersed in that whole scene. Shortly thereafter I also began working at MAB, thanks to an intro from a certain style blogger, and it’s been an amazing, eye opening experience.
The three-piece has become my go-to around the office… here are some of my favorites.”
1. The Everyman Suit
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my experience at MAB, it’s that every man should have a solid grey suit in his closet. You can wear it anywhere. And it’s pretty tame in nature, so you can afford to give it some life with some seasonal patterns and colors.”
Looking to add some “custom flair” to that bespoke suit order? Don’t adorn it with eyesore accents like colored buttonholes or contrast pick-stitching. Instead, add a waistcoat and make it a three-piece. It’s a simple way to add some swagger to a suit, and it makes a staple suit even more versatile, rather than creating a people-won’t-forget “statement piece”.
“I really dig how this shirt seems like a solid purple from a distance, but up close you can notice it’s subtle geometric print.”
On a separate note, what a great haircut! Short on the sides faded to longer on top looks flattering on just about everybody.
I’m not sure if it’s his Irish blood, but Brady tends to wear a lot of green.
He often pulls-off some unexpected shades of green. Like this grey suit, purple shirt and army fatigue tie combo. Not to mention the lime/forest striped socks.
