A casual “winter” day in Los Angeles.
Vintage southwestern print shirt, old soft henley, maybe the best waxed denim of all time, some sh*t-kicking boots, and a handful of simple accessories.
This is the same hat style that is currently being offered in the Articles of Style March Menswear Giveaway.
For the history buffs: the “open road” felt hat by Stetson was a style that was popularized by presidents Truman, Johnson and Eisenhower.
These midnight brown waxed denim jeans are unbelievable.
You know how some waxed denim only has a “slightly waxed” feel? Not these guys. These are heavily coated for a glossy, oily finish but the cotton is brushed soft on the inside. It’s truly a unique texture that ads an entire dimension to a typical pair of jeans.

2. Nish de Gruiter
Nish has been flying around the country opening shops, and looking crisply tailored, as Suit Supply continues to grow by dominating the $400-600 suit market.
Today he’s keeping it bossy in bold flannel chalkstripes, a crisp spread collar, lush geometric tie, and a beautiful wool/cashmere double-breasted overcoat.
As we spoke about here with our friend Angel, sometimes the back of an overcoat is as important as the front.
And to finish it off… What do you know about double monkstrap chukka boots?!
“When I was in New York for Fashion Week I hit up one of my favorite thrift shops, 10 Ft. Single, and found this fantastic pair of Carhartt overalls. I’ve been planning a trip to my parent’s ranch in Texas with some of my friends for a while now and I knew these overalls would be the perfect attire.”
“At first I thought the only time I would ever wear these bad boys was on the ranch, but they’ve really started to grow on me. You might see me rocking them on a regular basis. What do you think? Am I getting a little too comfortable with my backcountry roots?”
Thanks for reading. Great content coming up!
Yours in style,
