Of all the people we’ve featured on TSBmen, Ouigi “The Bearded Man” Theodore (as previously featured here), has probably the most iconic and recognizable personal style.
He’s been wearing (and collecting) vintage clothing since long before vintage clothing was “mainstream” and he basically trademarked the beard + neckerchief combo.
His southwestern-inspired, urban-entrepreuneur style has served as the foundation for his work as brand ambassador, creative director, and founder of The Brooklyn Circus.
Here the Brooklyn native of Haitian heritage gives us a taste of what he’s been wearing day-to-day as he continues to grow his business and career.
1. Style in Subtlety
Ouigi is a meticulous collector with very specific taste. You really have to look closely at his pieces to fully appreciate their subtle details and “perfectly imperfect” state.
This pencil-striped western chambray shirt, for example, has a 3/4 placket and bib-front cut on the horizontal bias.
He off-set its textured with a vintage silk neckerchief and paired it with a beat-up rope belt, faintly paint-splattered chinos and some expertly curated vintage jewelry.
Not to mention these badass two-tone kiltie monks!
…the kiltie is officially having a moment.
