I beat the guys so badly in our latest “who wore it best” post, that I thought I should offer them a rematch asap.
It just so happen that our friends at Johnston & Murphy were looking to hook-up the TSB crew with some new kicks for Fashion Week, so Towni, Wes and I looked through their latest collection and agreed on a pair for our next challenge… We all love a good wingtip, especially one in an unexpected, but still versatile, color. Therefore, we went with the Tyndall wingtip in olive leather.
Feel free to vote for your favorite outfit, and tell us why (or why not) in the comments!
1. Dan – Tropical Tailoring
This is officially the first look published from our new home in Los Angeles.
We shot this in our backyard (Alex and I are sharing a house) and, yes, we have a backyard! Complete with our own fruit trees (oranges, bananas, avocados, pomogranates, all that). As a guy from Canada who’s been living in manhattan for the past eight years, I’m excited for a change in lifestyle…not to mention the changes coming with our site, content and business… More on all that soon.
I’m still figuring out my LA style, so for this “who wore it best” I thought I’d stick to what I know best: seasonal tailoring.
Had to go with the tropical inspiration: unlined linen suit, flowy raw silk shirt, and a classic Panama hat. The brass and gold touches give it a little edge and compliment the rich green of the shoes.
These olive leather wingtips are more versatile than you might think.
My favorite things to pair them with: khaki chinos, washed jeans, light grey trousers, tan/brown suits.
