    1. Dan


    Maybe we’ve been spending too much time in Southern California, but goddamnn it’s cold here in NYC!! So cold that I had to break out the full-face ski mask for Fashion Week.

    I forgot to lift it up when I walked into a corner store the other day…things got a little awkward at the cash register.

    “When I photographed my buddy Baxter a couple months ago I totally fell in love with this thrifted leather jacket that he turned into a one-of-a-kind work of art using a paint pen. When I was thinking about what to wear to NYFW I knew I wanted to incorporate it somehow and he was nice enough to let me borrow it. It’s going to be so hard to return it when we get back to LA…”

      Once again Wes kills it!

    • Chad

      Come through wit the Ye mask on. Dan killed it

    • Massimo

      i think Alex is wearing wrong outfit w/ the jacket. imho, leather should be worn w/ jeans, not that grey pants/vest combo…just an uneven look. Plus, one day he is in a country hat, the next he goes punk rock?

    • Daniel

      http://four-pins.com/style/new-york-fashion-week-street-style-part-iv-3/ I recognize that tie-shirt-ski mask combo on slide 24!

    • TO

      Dan. Just too much style today. I also understand the ski mask, the thought of getting one has crossed my mind while getting blasted in the face by extreme winds this winter in Toronto.

      Alex- why is there the Canadian pin on the lapel of Baxter jacket? Is he CDN?

      Wes- awesome scarf man, I love the texture of it!

    • Daniel Moretz

      This post is awesome. Alex needs to start his own blog called “Badass Bespoke” and Dan’s look killed it as well but the ski mask makes me feel like I’m going to see him on the news as part of a Wall Street heist.

    • Toby

      It was down to Wes and Dan for me (sorry Alex, love your style but I couldn’t feel the color palette on this one) and I had to choose Dan because for some reason Wes’ tie irked me. I don’t know, it being slightly loose on a cutaway/spread shirt somehow caught me. But loved the coat though!

      • http://www.TSBmen.com/ Dan Trepanier

        I almost made him reshoot this for that damn loose tie knot! I know your reading this Wes – tighten it up!

    • A.M

      Wes looks awesome. So profesional, classy… perfect! His look is my favorite. But Alex is a real rock start. WOW! Alex… you are in the correct way. Very good style man… very good.

      Where is Towni?

    • John B

      Liked all three looks, but I had to vote for Dan. This suit is one of the best.In fact Suited & Booted is one of my favorite posts because of that suit.

    • Akil McLeod

      That suit is amazing Dan…you got my vote

    • drg

      Well plaid, Dan!

    • John

      i miss towni :(

      • http://tsbmen.com/ Alex Crawford

        Me too John, me too…

        • Mike

          Did we ever get an official sign off/reason for him leaving? Will be missed

          • khordkutta

            Wait, what, Townis out, first the Fugess break up now this.

            • Me

              Haha @ “first the Fugees break up”

          • http://tsbmen.com/ Alex Crawford

            Guys I was just kidding! I mean I do miss him, because I moved to LA and he still lives in NY, but he’s still a part of the TSB team.

    • Drew Middleton

      I don’t think Camel and grey look good together…but Wes made it work!!! Great looks all around, minus the ski mask and that tacky leather jacket on Alex

    • Henri

      Dan. That plaid.

    • JoeFromTexas

      Really hard to call between Dan and Wes. I’m giving it to Dan with a narrow victory, because I found the ski mask humorous.

      Not feeling Alex though, which makes me sad since Alex is my hero. Not sure if it’s the too small glasses or bulky mittens or jarring difference between the jacket and 2 out of three piece suit. Maybe I’m wrong, everyone else says I’m wrong. That hat Alex has been wearing on Instagram though, that’s a fly hat.

      • Drew Middleton

        I agree. Alex was off today. The jacket could work with another look, but not that suit. Took away from its class

      • Adam

        If the jacket were a little longer (or the waistcoat a little longer), it might have worked, but it makes Alex look really short and wide because we can see the belt and that splits up the lines.
        I gave my vote to Wes because he’s less likely to get mistakenly shot by the cops in his outfit…

      • http://tsbmen.com/ Alex Crawford

        Aw man your hero?! I feel bad for letting you down! Hopefully I can make up for it next WIWT. Between you and me though, I still love this look.

        • JoeFromTexas

          LOL – you mean you don’t dress for NYFW with the sole purpose of pleasing me?!

        • http://www.TSBmen.com/ Dan Trepanier

    • J Fig

      Alex is on a whole other level with this one! KILLER look man, definitely gets my vote.

      Dan and Wes, always on point as well!

      • http://tsbmen.com/ Alex Crawford

        Thanks man!

    • http://www.whitneynicjames.com Whitney ‘Nic’ James

      SO stylish – you all look great. Enjoy NY!


    • Shawn

      Dan, that suit is out of this world! I know, I’m saying this for every new suit featured on here, but this one, wow! I love the red accent in the checks, especially paired with that tie and shirt! Also love Alex’s leather jacket, badass!

    • Jeff McAllister

      I had to go with Wes’s super crisp, super classic look on this one. But damn dude if Alex’s (borrowed) jacket doesn’t make me want to paint my own.

      • http://www.TSBmen.com/ Dan Trepanier

        For real. I considering doing some clothing art as well. Baxter is a G for genius.

        • http://Keyboardandcompass.com/ Jeff McAllister

          Who modded it best! Now THERE’s a feature I look forward too!

    • Jeanscuffed

      Alex took it easily today. His jacket or not, it adds a style punch to his outfit and glad he went with boots instead of sneakers or dress shoes. Might I instigate by saying look at how Alex is turning his back on you boys saying, “I’m not seeing y’all…”
      Dan did you go with a pre-Valentine’s day theme? Looks amazing man, and Wes killed it with gentlemanly pieces, nice and simple that flowed.

      • Jeanscuffed

        I do have a question for Dan: With the ski mask, did you ever take it off or did you keep it on for the look. I ask because I wear something similiar and when I pull it off it messes up my hair and I figured with the suit you have on that you would have kept it on just incase your hair was messed up.

        • http://www.TSBmen.com/ Dan Trepanier

          Yea, I take it off inside. I use a little more hair product and make sure that when I put it on, my hair is kept in the right position under the mask/hat. When I take it off I just have to use my fingers to un-flatten my hair and it looks presentable.


    • Evghenyj

      Welcome to Kiev, Ukraine!

    • Jeff P.

      I voted for Dan. I’ve been rocking a ski mask for a few weeks now. This Chicago cold ain’t nothin’ to play with.

    • WideEyesTWBlog

      You all look sharp as heck, but I gotta go with Dan. The fabric on that suit is outstanding, and you do a great job bringing out the accents with your shirt and tie choices. Well played all around, though.

      • http://www.TSBmen.com/ Dan Trepanier

        Thx player

    • cam

      im going with dan minus the ski mask…leave that one for kanye…stick with a tuque and scarf

    • VB

      Although, I love the classic looks on Wes and Dan. I am going to steel Alex’s look for my next date!

      • VB
