The Two-Season Wardrobe: How to Wear It

menswear wardrobe essentials

After my recent post on my two-season wardrobe essentials, I thought I would write a follow-up with how I typically wear these pieces. None of this is particularly groundbreaking as all of these items are very common and versatile, but I suppose that’s why I consider them my essentials. Like I mentioned then, the idea here is that I have a warm- and cool-weather version of each piece, which gives me enough versatility to wear this “uniform” throughout the year. […]

Los Angeles Getaway

packing for Los Angeles

Looking back at what I wrote in 2016, I noticed something interesting – although I traveled more last year than any previous year (1-2 roundtrip flights per month), I only posted one packing laydown. I suppose the constant packing and unpacking left me uninterested in adding any additional steps to the process. Either way, I […]

I’m pretty sure it saved my life on that trip; I have no idea how I would have made it through that week without it […]

Second Life

I am no stranger to used clothes. Although I’m not a skilled thrifter like Ben or Jason, I still hunt for used clothing on websites like eBay and Styleforum in order to buy high-quality goods that would normally be outside of my price range. Buying used clothing is a great option from a fiscal perspective, […]

Business Casual Basics, Part II: Dress Pants 

After some positive feedback from my first business casual post (I see you, Reddit) I’ve decided to continue the series for my fellow white collar ballers (being a baller is not actually required). Again, this may be old hat to some, but for those that are interested – read on. 1. Please stop buying black […]
