Not sure if it’s old Hollywood, the cowboy influence, or just the constant sunshine but in LA I find myself wearing hats much more often.
The first thing I bought out here was this vintage leather belt and some awesome homemade jewelry from the Sunday flea market on Melrose.
These leather/mesh chunky wingtips are awesome!! They’ve become one of my favorite pairs because they breathe extremely well (air flows right through the mesh) and they’re specifically designed for comfortable walking… They’re also golf shoes.
- Brown felt hat by Stetson (Vintage)

- Washed chambray double-breasted jacket by Club Monaco (Sample)
- Watch by Montblanc Timewalker Automatic
- Handmade crystal beaded necklace from Melrose Flea
- Leather woven belt Vintage
- Light grey cotton chinos by Michael Andrews Bespoke
- “Double Eagle” two tone brown golf shoes by Allen Edmonds

Wes going with the 3-piece blue & black combo.
Don’t sleep on the paisley-on-paisley accessories and those murderous black monks.

“I lost these sunglasses right after shooting this. I’m so bummed, they cost me like $7 on St. Marks.”
Also wearing: an Apollo II pin (a cue from his friend Whit) and his girlfriend’s silver wishbone necklace.
I think we each have at least one pair of the Veblen wingtips by Florsheim.
4. Towni (NYC)
You can take the man out of Connecticut, but you can’t take the Connecticut out of the man.
Towni staying true to his classic menswear roots in a traditional camel hair sport coat, bengal stripe shirt, wool knit tie, grey sharkskin trousers and oxblood loafers.
The best thing about a camel hair sport coat is that it can double as outerwear for most of the season.
Consider it the Fall/Winter equivalent to your khaki cotton jacket.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
