    Dan, I’m glad you’ve finally decided to stop letting Towni win all of these. You’ve been absolutely dominating over the last few months. Not even close.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      haha gotta build confidence in the young protégés

  • Wm

    Thanks for this one. I just bought a charcoal suit like this, and wasn’t sure I could wear brown shoes with it. Sharp.

  • James Cuneo

    Dapper Alex!!! Looking lovely!!! Keep it up!!!

    Towni and Dan are in dead heat. 29.81 to 29.81. Will Dan’s omnipresent hat be enough to overcome the seductive wiles of Towni’s prehensile hair?

    • John Crossley

      Haha +2 for the use of prehensile.

  • Khalid

    Everyone’s looking good today!

    It would be interesting to learn how Dan’s Angel suit differs from his MAB suits. Are they both based on the same measurements? Button stance seems the same. Is it just less padding and wider lapels (and possibly narrower sleeves) that result in the different effect? Whatever the reasons, it’s a refreshing alternative.

    Most other days, John would have my vote for the look (minus the glasses, but that’s a personal choice) but damn, Dan, that suit is incredible. Does the dye rub off onto the shirt?

  • Drew

    Wes, loving the fit man! May I ask, what chinos are you wearing?

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

      thanks Drew, the chinos are from Uniqlo.

    Loving John’s look, where is the blazer from?

  • Rich

    Dan – bossy suit.

    The thing I took from Angel’s most recent feature on the site was that he keeps it simple with shirts. White, light blue and light pink. I think there’s a lot to be said for a well-fitting shirt with a nice roll in the collar. It lays the foundation for the rest of the outfit, and a plain shirt gives you more scope to do different stuff with the rest of the outfit. That’s a roundabout way of saying I think Angel would have appreciate the simple white shirt under your new suit – looks great!


  • Ian K

    Went with Dan. Killer Hat! John we are like that all over. Bugger all sun here!!!

  • cam

    dan, you would’ve got my vote if you wore your RL denim shirt haha…went with john today

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      haha. I’ll have to try that – think it might actually look cool since the denims are so different.

  • Brian

    Love what Towni’s wearing as usual (pocket square is a nice touch), though I do notice he sometimes doesn’t seem to “fill out” his suits.

    Dude, you’d look killer with an extra 10 pounds on your frame — ever consider putting down the fishing pole for 3 months and picking up some iron?

    I know, I know, easier said than done, but I think you’d be surprised at how fast you’d grow, and how it would affect your look in a good way.

    My opinion of course. Still love your style.

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      Oh man, I wish! I’ve been meaning to start hitting the weights more seriously with Wes, but fishing takes priority! Unless anyone here wants to train me…

      • M.

        Wes lifts? No wonder why that shirt looks way too small, thus my vote going for Dan today. :P

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

          eat clen and tren hard bro.

          • Brian

            Hahaha Wes, you don’t need clen and tren, you need steak and deadlifts!

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

              lol just wanted to see if u know ur inside gym jokes… I hope u don’t curl in the squat rack

        • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

          Wes is going full steam ahead on the gain train.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        Damnnn…calling you out.

        • Brian

          Oh sheesh no, Towni’s already a baller. Just want him to see him reach legendary status. I mean, he’s already got the hair, the style, and the swagger…..all I got are muscles and Zubaz pants.

          • J Saltzman

            Wow, I had to comment cuz these gym posts are epic. Everyone’s been making all kiiinds of style gains

  • http://undefined TimL

    voted for Dan cause he looking like he’s with the rat pack…. still lovin the hat.
    Alex might have beat you out today if he had on some nice dress shoes. :(

    Alex, keep growing that hair out… looks good.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Love the Rat Pack.
      Alex is rocking some nice black wingtips…photo not really doing ’em justice.

      • TO

        It’s too bad because if they had he would have gotten my vote today.

        • http://undefined TimL

          Ok too bad… they look look round toed work shoes in the pic.

  • John B

    Either Dan or John. I’ll probably vote for John because he deserves to win more.

    Maybe it’s the picture, but the suit doesn’t really look like denim! Either way, it looks great!

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Deserves it more eh? True denim, it’s just brand new – I’m hoping it breaks in like selvedge jeans…

      • John B

        Hmm I meant he deserves to win most often! I should have worded it better I guess!

  • Jess

    You guys all made my heart skip a beat today. Such gentlemen.

    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      That’s dangerous. You’re a sweetheart.

  • LouCaves

    My second Alex vote for WIWT in a row.

  • Charlotte

    John as always!

  • Meg

    John all the way!!
