1. Alex

08

Alex continues to step up his game, with a kind of a Cuban inspired look today.

Panama hat, black peak-lapel mohair suit, khaki linen shirt, and sharp black/brown monks.

09

“I inherited this amazing hand made Hawaiian Panama Hat from my step-father a few years ago. I think moving to LA finally gave me the courage to actually wear it.”

13

“I am madly in love with these black double monks that I was blessed with by Just A Men Shoe. They are amazingly comfortable and look so dope!”

    Wes killed this one. Those loafers are sick, and gets extra points for the functional cuff buttons on the jacket.

    Although that hat Alex is wearing is pretty cool.

  • Nick McCann

    Towni broke out the chest hair for this one.

  • Badger

    Alex. It’s the monks that seal the deal.

  • John

    Wearing ties and jackets for what purpose? Do you guys just suit up for a day of blog posting? Can’t imagine every suited day is a meeting.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      It’s a way of life brother.

      • John

        I disagree with you there. I believe the ‘way of life’ argument gets a bit ‘lets-play-dress-up’. Particulary ties and full-suits. There is still a portion of menswear fans who wear a suit for intended ocassions – but, it’s twindling with the rise of the ‘unbuckled monk streetorialist’

        • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

          Dress for the job you want. We’re running a menswear publication.

    • Badger

      Who needs a reason for looking good? I wear suits/jackets/ties often when I don’t have to, because it looks good and I like it, not because I have a meeting.

    • AM

      If you think, suit and ties are just clothes… and for that, you dont need a reason to used it. All the people in the world use clothes to live… and why you cant look good if you want it? We can select the best: the best woman for us, best career for us, best friends for us… why dont select the best style… for us?

    Alex nailed it.

    Alex! I wanted to vote for you so bad this time. You have really been bringing your “game” as it were. But, Dan is lookin’ so fine in those Levis…

  • Prasanthan

    Yo Dan! you guys should do a special where you dress up Alex like Buddy Holly since the resemblance is pretty much on point!

  • John

    The West Coast just suits Alex better, no pun intended.

    • John

      Well, maybe pun intended.

      • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

        Hahaha I love puns! Thanks!

  • http://www.techmorobo.com Chris

    alex is killing it lately!

  • Rich

    Great shoe day boys – loving the RL loafers.

  • AM

    Dan is rocking again!!! He IS the style blogger!

    Alex looks good too. Always in him personal relax-style. Cool.

  • Lil boo

    Wes got that NT connect I see with those loafs

  • http://keyboardandcompass.com/ Jeff

    Great styling all around on this one, but my vote had to go out to Alex because his game has come up so much these past few months.

    Also: That golden Californian light in the first picture is perfect.

    Get better soon, Towni!

  • Ben

    Wheres Towni???????
    Who do I vote for now…

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

      he wasn’t feeling well, but he’s doing much better now

  • TO

    Any other day woulda given it to Alex, but then Wes came to the party. Solid showing all around today gents.

    Btw, how are things w/o the full crew going in NYC Wes?

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

      pretty good man, a lot of great content coming up!

  • Joe

    Alex got my vote, he looks great – so much for not wearing a black suit outside of funerals and black tie…

    Dan looked great as well, though I was curious, did you get those 501′s tapered, they look pretty slim?

    Something about Wes’s outfit put me off, took a second to realize that he was wearing odd coat and trousers that were really close to each other. For some reason, I found this off-putting, not sure why.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Nope. Found these in a vintage store and they fit like a glove. They do seem a little more tapered than a traditional 501…maybe they were tailored years ago…

      Agreed on the black suits. In LA Alex and I have been wearing black suits fairly often (lightweight ones – mohair, linen, hopsack)… Seems right here, oddly…

  • http://Ntscollective.tumblr.com Adrian

    Damn Wes. Sweet loafers bro.

    ..who put you on ?!

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

      ancient Filipino secret ;]

  • Ali

    To make up for my poor attitude on yesterday’s post, I voted for Dan twice today

  • Deacon0228

    Giving it to Alex, on point with this one.

  • http://www.vincentnappi.com/ Vincent

    Alex, thank you for kicking all the ‘Black is Bad’ boogeyman to the curb.

    • http://www.vincentnappi.com/ Vincent

      Ahhh, typos…

      I meant BoogeyMEN not BoogeyMAN.

  • KO

    This slideshow format is ridiculously bad, used to check these out everyday but its a horrible pain on mobile now, and plain annoying on desktop

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Yea, I agree. We’re dropping the slideshow format with the new site we’re developing…along with many other upgrades to the interface, including a whole new mobile site.

      For now we have to put up with it…trust me, it doesn’t frustrate anyone more than me!

  • http://wideeyestightwallets.com Adam

    Voting for Dan this round, love the high/low he has going on with the beat up jeans and tailored waistcoat/jacket. Lots of very *different* pieces that come together incredibly well. I had a tough time not voting for Alex though, that look is killer, definitely some Cuban gangster vibes. Boss.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Word. Gold jewelry and all that.

  • AK

    How is Alex last? He looks like a total badass in those shots. I’ve noticed that he has really been nailing it recently. Keep it up!

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Thanks AK!

  • PS

    Dan,

    Are those Persols, the 714s? If not, which model are they?

    Cheers!

  • Shawn

    Dan, one day, you’ll have to post a picture of your complete wardrobe on TSB! That must be a one-in-a-lifetime sight! I imagine wall to wall covered with shoes and bespoke suits!

    • Brady P

      He had a shot of his shoe closet on Instagram, it was everything you’d dream it would be

  • http://www.theseals.com.au Desmond

    Dan – seemingly effortless….

    Good doogs all around, though.

  • LouCaves

    All the looks are very very nice. But Alex was the only one who garnered a verbal –”Dang, look at Alex, today”– as I clicked through.

    Wes! Ice cubes, man. Ice cubes!

    Thanks, TSB.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Alex deserves to win this one…mainly for the photo quality on that shot :)

      For real tho, he’s killing it lately.

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Thanks Lou!!!
