    Dr. Andre Churchwell

    Ever wonder what the best-dressed doctor in America wears to the office? Wether he’s performing open heart surgery or lecturing to medical students at Vanderbilt University, Dr. André Churchwell shows up impeccably dressed in classic menswear.

    This Spring weight double-breasted pinstripe suit is cut by his favorite tailor; the legendary Len Logsdail.

    As you may have noticed, I’ve been wearing this linen glenplaid suit as much as possible lately. Partly because it’s so versatile and airy, and partly because I want to give all of our samples a true test before launching our tailoring collection later this year. Stay tuned for more on that :)

    Ethan Wong, aka “The Teenage Gentleman“, schooling us one more time in the art of Vintage menswear. This time its a look straight out of the 1930s, down to the spearpoint collar, full leg trousers, and spectator shoes.

    • James May

      Rich for the win.

      What are we even discussing here? No offense to everyone else, but I’m pretty sure Dr. Churchwell would win every style competition he’d enter.

      I said it before and I’ll say it again, if Laurence Fellows were alive he’d take a picture of him, illustrate him and put him on Apparel Arts’ front cover.

      Marvelous use of colors, exceptional fit, pure class. Please Dr. Churchwell, feel free to visit us on this website any time you’d like!

      • Papi Moscow

        Agreed. Dr. Churchwell wins by a landslide. It is a little puzzling what we’re debating.

      • Andre Churchwell

        Thank you for your kind remarks. Dress should be a form of personal expression and being a little older, I have had a lot of practice!…Andre’

    • JoeFromTexas

      The good doctor out there killin folks. Wins hands down on a day where everyone looks on point.

    • Jeff P.

      *scrolling through the pictures*

      “Oh…Dan got a shot of Rich without his hand over his…oh wait, nevermind.”

      Haha! Rich wins, love the colors

    • NicCagesHair

      Rich, 100%. Eye popping colours, subtle pattern combinations, and great fit.

      Dan would be close but that DB Glenplaid jacket is overkill for me…but you gotta add dashes of advertisement for your upcoming products in somewhere.

    • Don Draper

      Rich, Dan and Ethan are my favourites.

      Rich’s style is exactly my style, a lot of tailored colourful pieces mixed with a casual accent like his white Zara sneakers. Simply awesome and it really stands out from the crowd.

      Dan again combines casual with tailored in a most awesome and relaxed way. That Gucci coat is beautiful and the Glenplaid blazer is a winner for sure in any outfit. The boots really finish the look and work surprisingly well with the white jeans by Helmut Lang.

      Ethan takes us back to the gold ol’ times and it is always great to see his 1930’s outfits. Takes you back to a time where every man was impeccably well dressed and seeing it in a modern setting really makes you wonder what went wrong. Its so sad that right now menswear is the most beautiful and versatile it has ever been, but most people simply opt for tshirts and sweatpants for convenience, not to mention the steady decline of office dressing.

    • Dave Coakley

      I love Rich Freshman’s jacket colour. It is really warm and vibrant and a lovely fit.

      For me though (if someone has to “win”) it is definitely Dr. Andre Churchwell’s pinstripe suit. I absolutely LOVE the slight break at the bottom of the trousers. This is just a personal thing but I do not like this current trend of highly cut trousers, sometimes well over the ankle. Just my opinion.

    • Vape

      If I had to pick one, I would give it to Dan. But honestly, they all look they are trying too hard to be noticed. Much bigger fan of fashion that is clean, crisp and subtle.

    • Ali Naaseh

      Dan wins for the simple reason that once again, he’s the only one that looks like a normal person

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

        I’ll take a back-handed compliment, although I’m not sure “normal” is “winning”…

        • Loscv29

          I’m sure he means “practical”. Some of these outfits can seem ornate to some. Looks like the commenter prefers your more subtle approach, as do I. Nothing wrong there. I don’t think it was back handed as much as it was suggesting the other guys seem costume-y to him.

      • Shawn

        The Doc looks pretty normal to me! In fact, I think he straight up wins!

      • Don Draper

        Why would anyone in his right mind want to look like a normal person? Have you seen what a “normal person” looks like nowadays?

    • G. Bruce Boyer

      Forget that Dr. Churchwell is a friend: his style is incomparable.

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

        Thanks Bruce! You guys are both OGs

    • Jon

      Is that a Hydra pin on Ethan Wong’s lapel? This guy is even coordinating his Marvel universe accessories to the appropriate era. respect, brother.

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

        Yes, it is.

      • http://www.streetxsprezza.wordpress.com Ethan W.

        Hail Hydra, my friend!

        • Andrew Buck

          how do you get the spearpoint collars? I like the look a lot and would love to know how you were able to get that effect at natty shirts because I don’t see it offered

          • http://www.streetxsprezza.wordpress.com Ethan W.

            When I purchase from Natty, I often disclose it in the notes AND the special instructions part when creating a shirt. It usually goes like “Notes: 3.5 inch spearpoint collar”

            They also request that you email them at their contact email stating your order number and that you want a spearpoint shirt along with the desired length.

            Spearpoint shirts are something we don’t have anymore and I want to bring them back!

    • Daniel

      The Doctor walks away with this one, IMO, and his smile is the cherry on top. Not a fan of Dan’s jeans-and-boots combo… it strikes me as somewhat feminine.

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

      You’re 100% right! Good catch. PG got the vision.

    • Miguel

      I like Dan’s look but I’m going with Dr. Churchwell, just something classy about him.

    • tommyjohn_45

      My vote goes to the Freshman.. Great looks all around though.

    • Caboom

      Dan locks down top spot for me! Rich a close second.

    • TO

      This is really a 2-on-2 of team old school vs. team new school. But then “the Dr.” cocks it back and jams so hard that the game gets called and everyone goes home.

    • AdamE

      Close between Dr. Churchwell, Rich and Dan, but I’ll give the win this week to Dan.

    • Sapprentice

      That straw fedora just finishes Dr. Churchwell’s look excellently. I also want to reach out to Ethan, whose passion for vintage menswear I respect. Yet, it’s not what I’m into these days. Dan, that Gucci coat looks awesome!

      It’s a close call between Dan and Dr. Churchwell, but my vote this week goes to the doc.

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

        Agreed. One can only hope to be as smooth as the Dandy Doc.

    • facelessghost

      I like this recent trend of featuring past guests in the WIWT posts. Keep it up.
