    Windowpane three-piece with the double-breasted waistcoat and the contrast pin collar shirt… This young man is really coming into his own.

    Signature soft tailoring for Khaled Nasr today. Nice touch with the subtle retro vibe between the paisley tie and the tartan trousers. Cut to the bone, as always.

    Blues on blues on blues for me today. Silk/linen tweed jacket, cotton poplin shirt, linen/silk herringbone waistcoat, and stretch cotton trouser. Hard to go wrong with shades of blue.

    Waraire Boswell always puts a little funk in his tailored pieces. Check out the shape of these lapels, the subtle pattern of the shirt, the full-cut trousers, and all the different hues of red together.

      Wes for the win

    • Kyle Leon Norville

      I think Khalid’s outfit is amazing. I love the colors and the blending.

    • Charles Edward Fromage

      Dan looks the most natural and comfortable, which goes a long way. The combination of finer textures and heathered fabric makes this a very versatile option too. I’m all for loafers without socks, but this fits.

      Compared to the others today, it just looks like he’s been doing it longer.

      Capital, dear boy.

      Love Dan’s jacket. So nice.

    • Jeanscuffed

      Wes hands down. Dan you come in close second but a that’s a badass 3-piece to follow

    • PeterBCunha

      Dan takes this hands down

    • TO

      Can’t really put one above any of the others today, everybody’s really doing their thing. I’m gonna go with Boswell though, an example of an outfit being “fun”. I love the playfulness of color, texture even though at first I was taken aback a bit!

    • Stuart

      Waraire’s jacket is on point. Haven’t seen something with that much character in a while.

    • julianwrong

      Wes ALL THE WAY

    • Bob

      gosh dang you really don’t miss an opportunity to call Wes a little boy, it’s getting a bit tiresome.

        “young MAN”

    • tommyjohn_45

      Damn damn damn… All four on point today gents! Well done. Wes, pretty sure you’re about to pull out two Desert Eagles in pic #2, Bruce Willis style, and gun down an entire army of thugs. Without gathering so much as a wrinkle on your suit in the process…

      • http://www.tsbmen.com/ Westley Dimagiba

        get some John Woo doves flying behind me and it’ll be perfect.

        • tommyjohn_45

          Alex, let’s make it happen!

    • Joseph

      You know there’s a sweater listed for Dan’s look but no actual sweater.

      That’s a mad subtle April Fool’s joke. My hat’s off to you.

    • http://ledebonnaire.tumblr.com/ Juan Zara

      Wes, did you make the suit yourself? Looks terrific, brother! The double-breasted peak lapel waistcoat is killer!

      Also, Dan, who made the “summer tweed” jacket you’re wearing? Awesome look as well, the matching herringbone on the socks and waistcoat is a great subtle detail.

      • http://www.tsbmen.com/ Westley Dimagiba

        make? I wish.

        However, if you meant did I design it then yes sir… much appreciated!

        • http://ledebonnaire.tumblr.com/ Juan Zara

          Yeah, I actually meant if you had tailored it yourself. For some reason I thought you were apprenticing at MAB like Dan did when starting out.
          It really is a fantastic suit, though, it fits you to a tee!

          • http://www.tsbmen.com/ Westley Dimagiba

            getting there…

      • TO

        Juan- it’s an Angel Bespoke number Dan is wearing

        • http://ledebonnaire.tumblr.com/ Juan Zara

          Thanks TO!

    • Dave Coakley

      Wes has crushed it with that suit. Awesome.

    • cam


    • AdamE

      All looks were great. I’ll give it to Waraire, with Wes a close second, and Dan and Khaled not far behind in a 3rd place tie…

    • Herbert Morrison

      Dun know about Dan & Wes–tie again today!

    • Nick J.

      All of you guys killed it today…

    • facelessghost

      The lesson I take from Waraire’s outfit is how flattering high-rise pants and a low button stance can be on us tall, lean guys. But I see the shape of the lapels and the color of the jacket and all I can think is that he looks like a tulip :-).

    • Miguel

      It’s a tie, all four gentleman look great, I would rock any of the four outfits.

    • Willie JS

      Look at the quality and craftsmanship of Wes’ suit..!
      All the lines match, the fit on point, the stitching, buttons, etc. The only thing I have been noticing with Wes is that the bottom of his suit pants could use a bit more ironing.
      My vote goes for Dan, the blues are killing it and like the saying goes, “The Dan is in the details” (different textures, shades and most importantly the socks completes the look! If you had gone sockless, showing your pale ankles it would have looked wrong due to the layers up top.
      Thanks for the inspiration guys.


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

        hahaha. I like that. Thanks Willie!

    • djsavenger

      Wes is just outstanding.

    • Daniel

      Dan wins it, for all that texture. Wes’ look is strong too, and Boswell’s is unique and has a lot of personality. Again I like the colors Khaled wears, but am not a fan of jackets being so tight that they’re strained when he’s just standing up. It’s excessive, destroys the drape, and can’t be comfortable.
