WIWT: March Madness

March 19th, 2013

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

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



“First day back in the office, have to keep it sharp.”



“Don’t know why everyone’s tied-up today, just trying to keep it casual. Sansho knows what I’m talking about…”



“Thirty six degrees and snow on the ground today. Had to go with tough boots and a layered-up leather jacket. ”



“Got that long sloppy tie.”



“Breaking out a classic trench for yet another rainy day in NYC”

Sansho Scott


My homie Sansho came by again today. Keeping it classic Americana, as usual.

    I feel you Towni! Go Yanks!

    We gotta get John a #WIWT, and today’s the perfect time. Love the colors, John, and kinda jealous of that trench. I always find it hard to do something with that color, so i’m glad you’re making it work. What kind of trench is that?

    • John Crossley

      Thank you Lindsay. The trench is Burberry in a stone color. I really like the traditional color and length on this coat. I think it really makes it stand out.
      Thanks for reading.

  • Tjay

    Dan +1
    but John? +2

  • Kien

    Everyone was strong but I’m going with Sansho with the functional casual layering.

      Name of the game.

  • Gary-A

    Good lookin’ Wes!

  • Vio

    You should mention some weather info at the beginning of every WIWT post. Suede is cool; suede on a rainy day with snow on the ground is not!

  • Simon

    John for the win! Alex and Wes follow in a close second, but everyone looks great today!

  • RJ


  • Professor Black

    Am I right in saying that is a uniqlo cardigan, Alex?

  • Professor Black

    What an entry! You guys really brought the A game today. I like the grey leather and red combo, Dan FTW.

    Hi TSBmen Crew,

    +1 to Wes. Good job dude.

  • Rob A


  • Scott


  • Kyle Leon Norville

    John. That trench coat is amazing.

  • Domino

    Hard to fade my main man Wes here….sharper than a razor (as usual)! But, I gotta go Crossley here. If he was more killin’ it anymore….he’d be layin’ in the back seat of a white Ford Bronco….cruisin’ down an L.A. freeway with Al Collins at the wheel. Free Crossley!!!

  • Josh

    John is first and then Dan

  • http://undefined Jack


  • http://undefined Ray

  • Fidel


  • Corey K

    John! Classic

  • Nick

    Either, John or Sancho!

  • Ian

    Alex!, sweater/tie combi is excellent! Loving the footwear. Where are they from?

  • http://storniman.tumblr.com Alex G

    Wes and despite the long tie, Alex

  • CaptnCarlos


  • Brooks

    John, f’sho. I dig the trench.

  • Jaclyn

    Love John’s look today!

  • Zora

    I love John’s trench! He wins this one

  • Corin C

    Dan today nice layering!

  • Miguel

    Wes, his look is better overall.

  • Sam


  • DanC

    Wes followed closely by Dan and Towni.. Close one guys!

  • Kyle

    John today!

  • Richard

    John followed by Dan

  • John

    Dan. Love the leather jacket layering!
    Since there’s snow (taking Dan’s word for it!), why aren’t everyone wearing boots/something waterproof? To be honest, that’s why I didn’t vote for John!

  • Michael

    John #1, then Wes #2

  • Charlotte

    John! Looks like he came straight out of the 1950’s. classic sophistication and elegance.

  • Alec

    Wes is the winner today! From the office to an opening! Giving me prep school fever!

  • D


  • http://www.prepgang.com Lorenzo R. Mitil


  • Dex


  • Samuel

    I will go with John great outfit mix of nice stuff : trench, pink shirt, brown shoes!!

  • http://undefined VB


    On any other day I would have said Wes BUT because its wet suede shoes don’t make sense.

  • Ben

    Townsend is that an ebbets flannel cap? Either way you win!

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      Yup, great spot!

  • http://WideEyesTightWallets.tumblr.com WideEyesTightWallets

    This is a really tough one! Everyone is nailing their look (even though Towni is way dressed down, he’s looking real good doing it)! I’d have to vote John this time though, something about a chambray tie and a pink(ish) shirt gets me every time. Well done guys.

  • Kiel

    WES. It’s the haircut man.

    I love Townsends sneakers though. He’s got second place for, though I’m not into the high-contrast stripes on that sweater.

  • Ian

    1. Dan (that toggle coat just KILLS it!)
    2. Wes
    3. John

  • Andrew

    Love Dan’s layering of the leather jacket and red toggle overcoat. Class act with some edge.

  • JS

    Sansho – details like the old school yanks hat and Comme des Garcons pin tipped the scale.

    • http://shoscott.com Sansho

      Thanks JS — The pin is actually from a new brand called “212” run by a good friend and former colleague at PEGLEG NYC. Some really cool collaborations with local nyc taste makers – twoonetwo.us Over and Out.

  • Anthony

    John! Love the look!

  • Ali Naaseh

    John: the trench is killer. Love it.
    Wes: perfectly put together. Sharp, but not too dressy.

    Dan: no matter how well you dress, the beard just throws it off. It had since last fall. Hopefully when the weather warms up, it’ll change.

  • Michal


  • http://undefined Cullen

    John, most definitely. Great mix of colors, nice fit, and the trench tops the look off.

  • http://undefined Mathieu Lavoie

    Superb color palette going on John, very refreshing! You got my vote!

  • Joseph

    Definitely Wes, I’m also kind of curious where Dan got that tie, it’s cool looking.

  • Jerome

    This is a tough one, but I’ve got to go with Towni.

  • Bogdan Grigoroaea

    Dan is a f*cking god today. I think Zeus is going to kill you for stealing his look!

  • Colbert

    Wes brought his A-game today

  • Bob

    Towni. Love the casual look.

  • virid


  • Bob

    Wes crushed it.

  • Sam

    Gotta go with John. Great trench coat – where’s it from? I also love the textured flannel-ish tie.

    • John Crossley

      Thanks man,
      The trench is Burberry and the chambray tie is from a local NYC tie maker that I got at a pop up flee.

      • http://WideEyesTightWallets.tumblr.com WideEyesTightWallets

        Nice, I’ve been a big fan of Chambray ties since I got my first one a few months ago. Hefty and crisp in a way my other ties aren’t.

  • Scott


  • Chris

    Dan all the way today.

  • http://undefined John Mack

    Wes by default.
    Would have gave it to Dan but all I can think is that the Bearded wolf has eaten little red riding hood and is now wearing her coat!

    Love this feature by the way.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Hahaha…hole in your theory: the coat doesn’t have a hood

      • Cody

        Haha, and he sticks the landing!

  • mojo


  • Alex


  • Tod C

    Alex today – really pulled together well with a more casual look. Honourable mention to John

  • Andrew
