1. Dan (LA)

003

Not sure if it’s old Hollywood, the cowboy influence, or just the constant sunshine but in LA I find myself wearing hats much more often.

001

The first thing I bought out here was this vintage leather belt and some awesome homemade jewelry from the Sunday flea market on Melrose.

These leather/mesh chunky wingtips are awesome!! They’ve become one of my favorite pairs because they breathe extremely well (air flows right through the mesh) and they’re specifically designed for comfortable walking… They’re also golf shoes.

    I’d have to go with Townsend on this one, great colors and textures!

    I really like the hat. Very hipster and trendy.

  • Brandon-A

    I must say, Towni’s style game since dan/alex moved to LA has elevated tremendously

  • Drew

    Looks like Wes either has his sleeves too tight, intentionally pushed up to show more cuff, or faultily tailored – which results in the terrible bicep folds on the arm.

  • Drew

    Townsend – What was the cost to make the camel hair jacket at MAB?

  • http://undefined TO

    Everybody was on today. But Towni was most on. Haven’t seen a camel sport coat fit like that, ever. Only seen the oversized vintage ones. Spectacular.

  • Johann

    Wes today, great tie.

  • John B

    Went with Towni, but had a hard time choosing! One of the best wiwt so far!

  • Pete

    2 cents on look 3 would be less visible pocket square and longer tie length. Besides that, one of the better looks I’ve seen in the # – even though I have a hard time believing the weather warranted camel hair.

  • Ed

    Dan, that denim double tit, epic.
    As an aside, I’m really digging the extra info in the WIWT posts.
    Keep up the swellegance lads!

  • Mitch G

    Wes… lookin Untouchable, ha, seriously though that paisley tie is killer.
    I love Dan’s hat but I can’t get past the belt length and the shoesss, well the [oversized?] sole isn’t my personal preference

  • Sam

    More than anything else, this post shows how great of a photographer Alex is.

  • http://theconfuseddasher.com confuseddasher

    Lol-ing so hard at the comment “Paisley is the new black. Wes is the new Dan” hahaha.

    Dan wins, IMO. Casual and stylish. Well-balanced color combo. Wes’s look is pretty sharp but I personally just don’t like the suit’s hue.

  • Tommy

    I went for Dan.

    Love the sunglasses. Is it a Moscot Lemtosh’s?

  • Alex

    Dan wins, though Wes was killing too. but Dan looks perfect LA Confidential era casual. A man’s look. Also, bias because of the hat!

  • Kiel

    Dan, awesome outfit. I just can’t bring myself to accept the over-hang belt. I don’t know why it just bothers me!

  • Cody

    Towni for sure. Just killing it!

  • http://wacavenue.blogspot.com Theguybehindthelens

    I thought Dan’s look was killer with the washed denim DB and hat. I love the casual vibe and fall color palette. I seriously need to invest in a casual DB for fall now…

  • Gazman

    Pleased the pants worn are not as tight as before.

  • Jimi Brady

    Dan, maybe it’s because I live 45 minutes out of LA and I know exactly what the weather is like there, but your outfit is probably one of the best you’ve ever posted. I think it’s the Western flavor of it. That’s exactly how I like to dress around this time of year when the sun’s out, but the mornings and nights are getting chilly for Fall.

    That hat with the denim sports coat is just . . . wow.

  • Kris

    That camel hair sportscoat is brilliant.

    Love the details on Alex.

  • cam

    towni easy….is it really even fair?

  • http://undefined Jeanscuffed

    It was a hard one. For me it was between Wes and Dan. I went with Dan because the denim DB is pretty rare. I still haven’t been able to find anything like it. Wes was in the running with the 3pc and his shoes almost won it for him.

    P.s. For some reason, Alex resembles Jason Biggs lol, am I alone here??

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Yea, that chambray DB is awesome. Picked it up at a Sample Sale for a few bucks. It feels and wears like a t-shirt too.

      Thanks for reading and commenting Jeanscuffed.

  • http://wideeyestightwallets.com Adam

    Damn, you guys are all killing it with this one. I went with Dan, but I could have easily picked any of the others. Actually almost went with Wes, I’ve got a suit almost just like that on the way.

  • Marcel

    Wes, nice and classic.

    PS what is with the clicking to see more pictures? One scroll down is a lot easyer :)

    • Chad

      They get more advertising revenue with multiple page views.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        That’s true. But the primary reason we broke up the WIWT’s is so we can include the outfits in the TSB Style Guide, which we’re currently revamping into a whole new concept. The upgrade is going to be major and will be a focus point of TSB’s future…stay tuned.

        We’ll also be including “Shop this Look” links to the products featured in each WIWT look, which wouldn’t be possible if all the outfits were on the same page.

        Nevertheless, thanks for responding Chad.

  • LouCaves

    Went with Towni although I like a lil’ sumtin sumtin on everyone.

    Two out of four gents with facial hair? Nice. Make it three…anyone?

    Thanks, TSB.

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Only in my wildest dreams :(

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Alex?

  • Harris

    Towni’s pants are what I imagine the platonic ideal of “fit” to be. They are not baggy or too long, but are big enough to have a beautiful drape. I hate all of my pants now.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Townsend Smith, best known for making other guys hate their pants. haha

  • Rob –

    All I have to say is “Wes? Yes!” :)

  • Ali

    Paisley is the new black, Wes is the new Dan

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      I guess the torch has to be passed. I got other fires to light…and put out.

  • http://undefined TimL

    Dan got my vote today just for the simple and comfortable style he displays.

  • Sergio

    Easily Wes in the boss 3 piece!

  • Brian

    Towni by a mile. Looks impeccable; love the hair too — seems to add a few quality pounds to that otherwise skinny-looking SOB.

    Wes is close but I think he should’ve worn a more pressed shirt instead of the white Uniqlo number.

    • http://undefined EM

      Yea I agree with a crisper shirt. Even maybe the same shirt but ironed a little.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        I also agree. We gotta get Wes some proper dress shirts.

        • http://www.tsbmen.com Westley Dimagiba

          just put in an order ;)

  • Gary-A

    Great blue-and-black example from Wes.

    Those Florsheim Veblen’s are great but I feel weird for being drawn to the Haviland because of the rubber sole. I don’t baby my shoes and walk them over all sorts of terrain haha.
