Getting Freaky In My Dashiki

It’s amazing what you can find in the back of some vintage and second-hand shops. I often go goodwill hunting without searching for anything in particular, this way I can keep an open mind and try to find something “new”.

The Casual Tuxedo

Yesterday’s post featuring Browne Andrews got me thinking. One major advantage of buying a shawl collar tuxedo (over a peak lapel) is that you can wear it casually. It takes some confidence and some style savvy, but if done properly it can make for a very suave look. Here’s three examples from the TSBmen archives. 1. […]

LA x NYC Style feat. Browne Andrews

Hmm, deal. I started by thinking about what it means to be an “influencer” and how subjective the […]
