What I Wore: Hyde Park

One last photoset from my England trip – a cold, snowy day in Hyde Park. This jacket has become my go-to for this Fall/Winter season, which is probably a surprise to nobody. The copper hardware that was bright and shiny out of the box has already begun to burnish and patina into a much more […]

What I Wore: London

What I Wore London

Strictly speaking, it was colder in Edinburgh than in London during my trip, but somehow it felt much colder here because the air was so damp. All the more reason to layer up and give these often ignored warm clothes some use! Overcoat – Eidos | Suit – Beckett & Robb | Shirt – Proper Cloth | […]

What I Wore: Arthur’s Seat

Although I didn’t have an opportunity to venture in to the Highlands while visiting Scotland, I got a small taste of it on a hike up Arthur’s seat, the remains of an extinct volcano near old Edinburgh. It was a rainy, muddy, rocky hike – just how I like it. Also – this post feels familiar… […]

What I Wore: Edinburgh

I had a great time in Edinburgh last week – it’s a beautiful city. Plus, the weather was cool and dry enough to allow me to wear this overcoat, which is a big plus. I’ll be posting more WIWT shots as well as some longer content on my trip over the next few days, so […]

A Gray Day in the Bay

San Francisco has been seeing some rain recently – beautiful, wonderful rain. It’s given me a chance to bust out my new jacket, a waxed cotton number from Private White VC. The jacket is something that I’ve had my eye on for a long time, and I’ll be sure to post a thorough review soon. […]

I love rules. My brain seems to do well with the order and reason they provide, and as a result of such they often shape the activities in my life. The laws of mathematics led me to study physics, which in turn led me to engineering. In the same way, I became obsessed with the the rigidity of music theory and that interest led me to jazz music, where I learned how to apply and break those very rules. And, unsurprisingly, the rules of classic tailored clothing is exactly what got me interested in menswear in the first place. With that said, though, there is one thing that any good rule needs – a good reason for existing in the first place. […]

A Short Summer

I’m sure I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again just to be safe – I hate shorts. Whether it’s in reference to arms or legs, I just don’t feel like I have the muscle mass or melanin in my limbs to make this style feasible. With that said, I totally get the appeal – when it’s hot out, why would you want to wear anything else? […]

Back In Black

This past weekend I was able to attend one of my favorite events of the year – an annual black tie celebration at San Francisco City Hall. My black tie kit has evolved and upgraded over the years, and now that all the pieces are more or less accounted for I’ve reached the somewhat confusing top of […]

Reppin’ My Team

I’ve always found that the colors navy and burgundy look great together, especially when they’re on the jerseys of my undergraduate alma mater as they annihilate the competition in the NCAA tournament. For that reason, I thought I would rep(p)* this new block stripe grenadine tie from the folks at Shibumi Berlin. […]

WIWT - Alden, 3Sixteen, Gant, Oliver Peoples
