Firstly, apologies for the slow posts this month. We’ve been on the road driving from NYC to LA to expand TSB on the west coast…just found our way out of the mountains of Colorado. What a trip so far!!
Some of you might recognize Jace Lumley, he was the runner-up in the heated and controversial battle for our February Giveaway. In the end, Elkin pulled out the big win (but not without some help from his friends at NikeTalk).
Nevertheless, we ran into Jace the other day and caught up with the Butler PA native, who moved to NYC to pursue a career in the arts. As a photographer and actor living in NYC, Jace rarely finds himself in tailored suits or hard bottom shoes.
“My sense of style is simple and easy. I like to focus more on small details and wear items that I’ve kept around for a while… I always circle back to the same clothes naturally, because I’m most comfortable in them.”
Here he shows us how to keep it simple and casual with style.
1. Sharp Tee & Jeans
This is about as dressy as it gets for Jace: a sharp take on a white tee and blue jeans.
“Even when I’m dressed-up I try and keep it casual… If they fit properly, casual clothes can look dressed-up and presentable.”
This is a great example of one of those “in between” casual/dressy looks that we often write about. It’s appropriate for just about any occasion from morning to night.
“These particular jeans were worn across country in my most recent photo expedition. They have grass stains from Denver, a ripped pocket from Nebraska, and I’m pretty sure sand still falls out of the pockets from Malibu. It does add a certain value to them for me.”
