WIWT: Layered Up

February 12th, 2013

Rule #1 of the Articles of Style Office: Bring Your “A” Game.

Comment below to let us know which outfit is your favorite!



“Got sick of wearing boots, so I wore galoshes to protect my loafs today. Probably should have shot this with them on…oh well.”



“Black on black on black. My go-to lately.”



“Fully-lined wool flannel suit over a cable knit sweater, over a OCBD, over a henley. Even in the freezing weather today I don’t need an overcoat.”



“I absolutely love this peacoat and haven’t really busted it out since my intro post. Man, is it just me, or do I look much different now?”

Sansho Scott


My homie shoscott came through this morning. Born and raised downtown NYC, he knows a thing or two about utility and classic Americana.



Thanks for reading,

    Tough one today, have to go with Sansho. Is that a Jack Spade Barbour?

  • Robert

    Townie. Man, I love your style man. Thanks for the reminder of that intro post. That was a very inspiring post. I love what you bring to the site.

    No contest, Sansho Scott

  • Vic

    Towni looks dope but I’m gonna have to give it to Sansho Scott!

  • Tjay

    Definitely Dan. That tailored Rick Owens-lookin’ swagger is nice.

  • Solomon

    This one is going for Dan, almost all black everything… Really like the double breasted, did you make it? you definitely master the definition of “fit”

  • http://Www.greenlightrally.com Ryan

    Towni please tell us where you got your jacket. That piece is sick! You win this one hands down.

  • Luke


  • Wayne

    That peacoat is SICK!

    Towni took this one.

  • mon

    TOWNI. really popped out (compared to the others)

  • Jake


  • HM

    Sansho. Though Dan’s boots are something special.

  • TO


  • Loretta

    Wait, there were other dudes on this page! Oh I guess I couldn’t see them cause Sansho nailed it!

  • Dave

    Dan. Not typically a fan of all black, but this works.

  • Paul


  • Trent

    I have to give my points to Townsend. And i agree with hi, his baby face is looking a little less babyish

  • Eugene

    Dan. Those boots are amazing.

  • Jerome


  • Dan L


  • Matty

    Sancho & Dan killin it

  • Johann

    Alex, then Dan. Love the monochromatic outfit, but… black?

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Hell yea.

    • Marcus Forlan


      I wanted to vote for Alex till I saw Dan.

      Tho I was tempted not to vote for him cuz he outed one of my personal favorite looks that I don’t see too often. Love the look of shawl sweaters paired w all kinds of stuff.

      Seriously tho guys, your looks are getting way too close to call these days.

      How about changing stuff up. You guys should channel each other. Dan should do an Alex style impersonation and vice versa. And Town and Wes. That should be fun to see now and then.

      • http://www.tsbmen.com Westley Dimagiba

        you know April fools isn’t too far away for that style impersonation suggestion…

  • Benjamin


  • Nico

    Sansho, Wes, then Dan, Alex, and Towni.

  • CV

    Dan killed it.

    Shoes are exceptional.

  • JJMD

    Sansho, Towni, then everybody else.

    Wes was close, but those layers are making him all mid-section.

  • TMS


  • Caroline Hockmeyer


  • Suzanne

    Towni is cute, but Sansho is the man.

  • Nikki

    WOW! Sansho Scott looks awesome! Love all his layers.

  • http://shoscott.com Sansho

    I’m going with Dan.

  • Adyna

    Wes :)

  • Adam

    Alex today, boys.

  • Kyle

    Everyone killin it as usual, but my vote goes to Wes today

  • Orlando Lee

    Tie between Towni and Dan

  • MEL


  • Patrick

    Dan’s is my favorite today.

  • Sergio

    Sansho…so hott right now.

    Towni today.

  • DG

    Sansho with the camera for sure…!

  • John

    I’m wearing black with grey today, so it feels right to go with Dan.

  • Michael

    Sansho – definitely!

  • AnnMarie

    Shoscott for sho’!

  • Ellie

    Sancho Scott…yowwsers! Totally wins in my book!

  • Danilo


  • Peter

    Sansho. Hands down.

  • Alex D

    Sancho takes the guest win here, Towni wins it for the regulars. That peacoat is pretty amazing.

  • Ray

    Towni again – that peacoat is a gem! Dan is a close 2nd – is that top from the Gap? Then its Sansho, Alex, and Wes.

  • JS

    Big fan of the monochromatic color scheme. My vote goes to Dan. Sansho a close second – is the jacket Jack Spade x Barbour?

    • http://shoscott.com Sansho

      Sure is. Pretty dynamite piece. Peep the club collar.

      • JS

        Club collar is the best feature … much preferred over Barbour’s original point collars.

        Where did you find the Navy Wool shirt/jacket?

  • Brooks

    Alex, who has had a really polished couple of outfits lately. Everyone else ties for second–this is easily the best one y’all have had yet.

  • Alex

    Dan, but Wes is a close second!

  • Luigi Cuneo

    you are looking a dynamite…
    We love you as a dapper.
    my vote to you

  • The Other TO

    Towni! Though the whole crew KILLED today. Jesus.

  • M-O

    Alex, Towni then Dan.

    Ya’ll killing it really. Keep at it!

  • http://greenspree.ca Andy Collier

    Scott, looks effortless!

  • Ian

    Damn, Towni is a champ every time! Great looks from Dan and Sansho too.

  • Kolja

    I vote for Alex, great suit. But the others do well too…

  • Anonymous

    Towni, Dan, Alex, Sansho Scott, Wes. That’s all for today, regards from Romania!!!

  • Simon

    Give my vote to Alex! Dan takes second! I do love that peacoat Towni!!!

    Towni’s peacoat wins.

  • cam

    the best the team has looked collectively. 4-way tie today

  • Kiel

    Everyone looks really great. I am super intrigued by this Sansho fellow. What’s that under his outer coat? It looks like some kind of wool shirt-jacket? I really like it.

    • http://shoscott.com Sansho

      It is a Navy Wool Work shirt. A Shwacket, if you will.(shirt + sweater + jacket)

  • Bob


    PS Towni, I want your peacoat.

  • Mojo


  • Sam

    Alex for the perfect business casual layering!
