We’re back in NYC for fashion week; attending shows, catching up with our East coast crew, and shooting some early Fall content. Now that we’re spending a lot of time in Los Angeles, it’s always fun to come back and hang with our New York friends. One guy that I always look forward to catching-up […]

RichFreshman-19 copy

Classic menswear has been booming. It’s great to see guys – especially young guys – appreciating things like hand-tailored suits and benchmade shoes. I’m talking investment pieces that have the potential to last a lifetime. One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that briefcases have remained very casual and flimsy across the board. I rarely see […]

Round Metal Shades Will Change Your Whole Look

103-580x871

No accessory in menswear impacts your overall look more than a pair of sunglasses; they’re often the focal point of an outfit and can add some distinct character.

Here’s two quick examples […]

Dashiki-5-of-6

It’s amazing what you can find in the back of some vintage and second-hand shops.

The other day I was rummaging through a vintage warehouse in downtown Los Angeles when […]

Hollywood Entrepreneur Style feat. Jelani Johnson

Jelani (8 of 14)

Jelani Johnson is an Ivy Leaguer, a world traveler, and an entrepreneur carving out his own space in Hollywood.  Although we crossed paths at Columbia University, we didn’t spend much time together on campus. He was wrapped up with classes and councils, and I with basketball and the discovery of fashion in NYC. When I […]

LA x NYC Style feat. Browne Andrews

cover

In the world of menswear blogs the word “stylist” often gets abused. Every one is calling themselves a “stylist” now. Or even worse, “image consultant”. There is virtually no barrier to entry. All you need is a Twitter account and a Tumblr with an About page. The thing is, bloggers rarely get cast as stylists for […]

Since Knot Standard delivered the best-fitting suit of the three brands we compared in our online custom suit review, I wanted to learn more about their business and their plans for expansion. After a great conversation with their CEO about the future of the online tailoring business, I set up an appointment to test their new Private Label […]
