Stop by the shop today and listen to the amazing music of guitarist Peter Blanchette. Oh, and that crazy 11 string guitar? He made that!
While we were in NYC for our Spring '15 buy, We saw these amazing watches from Tsovet and knew we had to have them! Love their simplicity, use of modern materials, classic design, and scale.
Unkempt elegance—NOT sloppy—is the game! Multi-functional blazers are a must-have essential. Wear them like you would a jacket. Layered with a hoodie, over a V-neck tee, or with a lightweight scarf.
Slim is here to stay. Even the stodgy old-school brands are tailoring their more classic fits because, you know what, guys are liking it, even your dad.
LINEN—Embrace it! If your first reaction to hearing this sends you running for a can of starch, I suggest finding a qualified therapist to help you figure out how you got so uptight and then go on a Kerouac-inspired road trip to find your soul. Southern California is a good place! Speaking of Cali, I was there recently for a cousin’s beach wedding and was shocked to see guys wearing corduroy, heavy tweed, and formal black wool suits and sweating it out like it was a new event at the Summer X Games. Which brings me to my last point, dress appropriately for climate (weather, geography, and mood). I wore a lightweight cotton shirt by Hartford (leave the tie at the office!), a linen navy blazer by Theory (because linen breathes), cobalt blue cotton pants by Halsey (Blue was one of the wedding colors. Look like you belong there!), a beachy striped D-ring belt by R. Hanauer (beachy, get it?), and wingtips with no-show Italian loafer socks by Marcoliani (the mood). Feeling cool as a cucumber, I could focus on what really mattered, my cousin’s wedding, and saved the sweating for the dance floor. The new American guy is savvy, creative, and so very cool!
