“If you ever run into me around NYC, you’ll most definitely find me wearing something from one of my favorite vintage shops…
I’ve had this shawl cardigan for years, it’s one of the warmest knits I own.”
“I’m giving my go-to Weejuns a break and wearing these handmade loafers by Ralph Lauren. The difference is amazing…I could wear these every day.
The photo doesn’t really do them justice, the burnished tan color is very rich in person.”

A slim black suit is a wardrobe essential. I find myself wearing this mohair version a lot in LA, often with just a simple t-shirt.
Speaking of t-shirts, here’s one of my secrets: I stretch the hell out of the neckline so it dips lower and drapes imperfectly. I hate tees with tight, high-rise necklines.
Light brown loafers can instantly add a daytime-friendly element to a black suit.
This is how a grown man wears “crocs“.
“Jenilee gifted me these amazing super-thick canvas pants by Taylor Stitch over the summer. I’ve already put them through hell and they’re holding up amazingly.”
“Yes, I am attempting to grow out my mustache for Movember. Yes, this is actually what my mustache looks like after almost 20 days of not shaving. Yes, I realize this is a horrible idea and that I am a man-child.”
Speaking of makeshift 3-piece suits, Towni layers a rustic cardigan under a sharply-cut grey suit.
Some subtle pattern-mixing with some clever touches of burgundy all around.
Towni likes his classic menswear pieces broken-in and a little beat up, like these oxblood loafers that he’s been wearing since we met him.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
