This past weekend Alex and I were in Amsterdam for Suit Supply’s annual press trip (see a fuzzy recap here).

We had a blast and got to know some of the guys behind the brand. Of course, they’re a very stylish crew.

Here’s just a taste of how these guys get down from day to day.

It was chilly and drizzling most of the weekend in Amsterdam, making it a perfect time to swap out a blazer for a lightweight nylon jacket.

Notice the fit of this Barbour.

Reza doesn’t wear it over a tailored jacket, he wears it like a tailored jacket. The shoulders are snug, the sleeves are narrow, and there’s very little excess fabric through the body.

The belt and shoes match, both in color and in degree of formality.

    I liked this post. There were definitely some things I could tak away. Looks four and five were my favorite and I would be willing to try the jacket substitute in look one. However, I personally am not on board with cuffing the pants as it seems like their expecting rain. I prefer pants without a break.

    guuuuys, its suitsupply, one word :)

    dan, looks like this was a fun trip and the guys at suit supply seem to be a great bunch. i am a huge fan of going sockless when the weather calls for it but bare ankles with scarves and multiple layers seems a bit wrong…no?

    These guys really know their stuff and you got some great photos! I might have to try that ultra-layered look Coen De Beer is rocking.

  • Brady P

    Very inspiring post! One of my favorites in recent memory. Clearly these guys are professionals. European men have such a non-chalance (sprezzatura I guess), that makes their style so unique and admirable. Really great stuff

  • Misha G.

    I hunted all over Amsterdam but couldn’t spot you guys. Maybe next time!

  • Jeremy Whitechick

    These guys are an astonishingly effective advertisement for their product. Yep.

    Really beautiful looks all around. It’s always nice when you see guys who obviously know what they’re doing so well that even something seemingly tossed together works like gangbusters.

  • Henri

    Fantastic. Every single look. Bravo.

  • Gazman

    Beautiful dressing all round. European men in general dress so much better than those in the ‘new world’. They have that tradition, which helps. Don’t want to be picky but it is something I see a lot on the internet, but isn’t the jacket sleeve in the second shot too short?

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      I think the sleeve is a hair short due to the wrinkling/crinkling of the linen fabric at the elbow. It’s similar to a pair of good denim jeans that honeycomb behind the knee and get an inch or so shorter.

    This is a fantastic feature! Great looks all around. I love the details, like how most of them have buttons unbottoned on the jacket sleeves.. true detail.

    We DESPERATELY need a Suit Supply in Los Angeles..

    • Omar Shaikh

      I second that.

  • BF

    I got a super sweet slim blue DB jacket from express recently and I can see from the early buzz from all the fashion blogs that DB jackets are going to blow up as fall rolls in…

    These looks are spot on and the fits are perfect..

    • AJ

      I believe I bought the same one, 60$ down from 200$ or so in the officer blue color. Do you find the button stance to be too high? I am slightly bothered by it and am contemplating returning the jacket despite its great color and price.

      • BF

        I’m keeping it…the fit is awesome..

  • Daniël M

    Bluh so wanted to meet you guys :( had to work instead..

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Next time!

      • Dit

        Alex, great shots dude! Despite the shitty weather last weekend, your pics look great. I must say that the Baron nailed it with his effortless flair on the second picture. NIET NORMAAL!! (Dutch for saying that something is awesome.)

        Yes, till next time bro! Groeten uit Amsterdam

    Suit Supply is a really impressive brand- right down to their employees, it seems like they do everything right (or at least by “right” meaning keeping this looking really really good!).

    The crew here rivals a Mashburn assemblage- I can picture the two of them getting into it in an alley, Anchorman-style (w/ TSBmen present also, of course:)

  • RoarSlakt

    What size is that Barbour jacket? I have one similar in size small, and while I’m not the biggest guy, it still feels way too big for me, and the sleeves are too long. Is this jacket tailored in any way?

    • Dave

      Yes, Off course
      His Jacket is taken in !
      Do not be afraid to do the same.
      Manufactures make clothes to accommodate as many shapes of people in a particular size.
      Get yourself a tailor, and make him your friend.

  • Ali

    I don’t like 3 and 4, but the rest of the looks are spot on.

  • SaM

    Wow, impressive post. Every one of these looks is perfectly thought out, and totally manageable.
    Gives you a lot of different style inspiration.
    If that doesn’t make you want to check out suit supply I don’t know what will.
