The Denim Uniform

This spring/summer why not make use of a denim shirt as the staple of your summer uniform. This can go a few different ways and its a pretty easy basic to pair up with anything. Short sleeve, long sleeve, cuffed sleeve. Check out these pieces from Topman.

I had some fun putting together some looks, the rest dear sirs is up to you…

indigo ticking stripe

grey vintage denim shirt/Cuff this

blue chambray shirt/or this

then pair it up with one of these: (not a huge fan of denim on denim, but if you know what you’re doing..)

mustard cotton jeans

olive green plain shorts

black market skinnys

anchor it off with some of these:

leon plimsoll


jetty

perhaps for some jazz, grab some of these:

black clubman glasses

Finally just make sure that shirt fits more tailored to your body, your pants aren’t too tight, and your shoes feel a little light. Have a good day.

Monday Beat: The Strokes + The Kooples

I have just returned from a week in London+Paris. I really can’t even begin to tell you how overwhelmed I was at every turn when I saw a well dressed man…because it was literally every ten seconds. I wish I could tell you I have a lot of footage, I wish I could tell you I went up to the hundreds of them and just said thank you, but I could not. Why? There was honestly just that many. Lessons learned? My US boys have got to step it up. There are about 5% of you doing the work for every one else state side. Just over the pond, the percentages are through the roof and EVERYONE is coming to play.

However, this boutique caught my eye with its great ads that I saw all over the cities. The Kooples,”military elegance, revisited flight jackets…the perfected three piece suit. Close fitting, tailored like the shirts and coats of Saville Row, that infamous street in London that’s been dressing dandies; from gentlemen to rock star”. Real life couples make up the ad campaigns and are tres chic.

I wandered into the shop in the Paris store, Printemps. I barely got a word out to the sales associate since I was so very overwhelmed by his style. But I did grab a catalog of memories.
