Throwback

Although I'm not usually one for this kind of stuff, as I was browsing GQ, I found a particularly intriguing (at least to me) photo essay about A Hard Day's Night. As you bigger Beatles' fans might know, that album turns 50 this year, and with the legendary British pop quartet still being used as a basis for all things music and inspiration, it was only fitting that GQ found a younger British pop band to show just how timeless those Beatles' looks really were. Stick with the classics, cause they'll stick with you. Enjoy my favorite pictures from the shoot, or click on over to here to see the whole thing.

8.22.14

Friday found me digging through duffel bags to find old pieces that I had not sported in awhile. Today brought out the vest and tie, in which the variations in pattern and tone cause them to pair very well together.

Emblematic

In getting dressed today, I decided to go back to the more sartorial side of things and pull out this old thrifting find in the vintage, Brook Brothers, shield tie. The rest of the outfit could be referred to as the more proper form of this outfit, but with this weather it's easy to go either way.



08.20.14

For a hot and humid day, I decided to play up the summer chill and go sockless in a pair of vans (obsessed with these by the way!) and the play with the chinos & polo aesthetic. Although I've avoided polos for most of my post-AE/A&F/Hollister days, I was drawn back to them when I saw this polo on sale at J. Crew. With it slim cut, shallow v, & shorter sleeves, this is what a proper fitting polo should look like. THEY SHOULD NOT LOOK LIKE those long-short-sleeve, garbage bag fit of most polos you see guys running around in today.
