I took it to Franklin and now it’s perfect for summer cocktail parties, beach weddings, or just when you’re feeling extra tropical. Sometimes I wear stuff like this on a sunny day just because it’s fun. People love it, especially in LA where suits are very seldom seen – especially tailored ones in seasonal fabrics.
Going linen-on-linen is one of my go-to moves out here, when it’s 85 and sunny in March. Spring/Summer fabrics year round.
They’re just so comfortable and work well with the casual nature of the West coast.
Around Christmas I decided to treat myself to a Schott Perfecto that I’ve been eyeing for the longest time. Naturally, I found this one at the high-end vintage boutique I frequent by my apartment, on sale! This is the type of piece that is better Vintage, because it’s stiff as a board brand new and doesn’t have any character.
Some leather motorcycle jackets can come off as too “costumey” at times, but if it fits right and you keep it simple, nothing else matters.
I’m all about the little things and the way these sleeves taper down the arm is just perfect.
Chelsea boots are a staple wardrobe item, in my opinion. After having these, though, I would like to find another pair with a less rounded toe box. #firstworldproblems
“I really love the color combination here and I didn’t want to add or distract from it by adding a pocket square or tie. The only accessory is a single ring, I’m not even wearing a watch.”
“Went with sleek black dub-monks. Again, trying to keep it as simple as possible.”
