    I’m digging that shirt Wes has on. Who makes it?

  • Wayne


    Best caption of all time.

  • Daniel

    Townsend: He wins when he wants. Seriously, though, great looks from all of you. Thanks!

  • Ryan

    Alex gets my vote by his caption alone…but he’s definitely killing it, so he would get two of my votes easily.

  • Steve

    I think Alex(my first time voting for him)because the sunglasses are so cool.

  • Pat

    Can’t really decide, all of them looks A++++. By the way, Westley has Filipino blood? Another reason to like him even more!

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

      lol thanks man, yeah I’m full Filipino.

      • Pat

        Awesome! I’m actually from Manila! :D

  • Anonymous

    Damn guys. Way too close to call. The past few have been like this for me.

    Alex in a suit ?? He must be tired of not winning this thing … lol.

    • Marcus Forlan

      I did not mean to be “Anonymous” on this quote.

  • Lil Dan

    Dan not even trying..He is just showing his versatility. No effort, looks like he just rolled out of bed. Towni and Wes tryin to hard, probably hella planned out their fits..no hate though, you both look great, nothing wrong with trying to get on Dan’s level. And Alex..finally looking NYC..ol boi was looking wayyyy to rural haha. Good stuff guys. Love the versatility on all of you!

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

      funny enough, I didn’t even like this fit so that’s def a compliment! hah

      • Lil Dan

        Wes, its nothing but love from me on here. Great work!

  • Ibby

    Dan followed by Wes! Good “Down the middle”

  • Alec


    • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

      Then everybody also lost :)

      • josh

        If you ain’t first…

  • Simon

    Always good to see Alex rocking a suit! With a decent tie he probs would’ve got my vote! Towni for the W today though, followed closely by Dan!

  • Marshall Mulherin

    Young Wes on the track…trippy swag mane.
    But for real I had to give it to Wes.
    Y’all have been on point like a dagger these past few days haha

  • John

    Dan. It’s a shame, because everyone killed it though!

  • Parker

    Wes! My boy! Wear in the name of the lord did you get that fresh ass shirt. Also, Cole Haan pennies, right?

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

      thrifted it and cut off the collar bro, my favorite thing to do with old shirts… and yep got the pennies at the vintage store too

      • Parker

        That’s so sick dude, i need to start doing that. We have some great thrift stores here. And my cole haan penny loafers are probably my favorite shoes, I love em. And I apologize for the incredibly incorrect use of “wear”…i’m so ashamed.

  • Daniël

    hardest one from now on ( like a month or 2) literally can’t choose and haven’t done it, and will not do it. you guys definitely brought your A game this time. Great job guys!

  • EL

    Towni! That’s the look. Kudos.

  • TO

    Dan. Here’s why: sans pocket square, rope necklace, with complimentary braided belted and kiltie(!) desert boots. Adds up to sweet in my book.

    Tight race today though.

    • TO

      I forgot the sick henly..

  • J Saltzman

    Going OG with Dan. KILLIN’ it!

  • http://reubeningber.com Reuben

    Where is Alex’s suit from?

    • http://tsbmen.com Alex Crawford

      Michael Andrews Bespoke

  • Brady P

    Gave the vote to Towni, but those kilted lace ups are nasty. How does that even work?

    • Brady P

      I see now, they are actually boots and the laces go over the kilt.. dirty!!

  • http://eightgiants.com josh

    everyone’s in a suit today. love it.

  • http://undefined sam

    dan all the way. that striped henley with belt watch combo damn! i like wes’ loafers tho.

  • Ian K

    Towni then Dan. All very strong looks today.

  • MB

    F*ck you guys, you all killed it.

  • Mistahkelly

    Wes today. Very relaxed and I’m a henley guy

  • LouCaves

    I have to say, scrolling down and seeing Alex made me say, “What the what?”

    1 Vote: Alex

  • Chris Piane

    A glorious comeback for Towni! Such a strong presentation that he has in fact given Mr. Trepanier a run for his money. A las! I can not decide. I need to abstain on this one.

  • Charles

    Toss up between Wes and Dan. Great looks tho. Keep it up.

  • Omar Shaikh عمر شيخ

    Dan, because of those dope shoes

    • Omar Shaikh عمر شيخ

      Btw, where are they from?

    • Kiel


    • David

      Wes, because of Dan’s ridiculous shoes.

      • http://tsbmen.com Dan Trepanier

        You’re trippin!!

  • http://WideEyesTightWallets.tumblr.com WideEyesTightWallets

    Giving it to Wes today. Everyone looks SHARP, but Wes has spring/summer style down to a T. Good to see Alex in a suit, though, haha!

    • http://WideEyesTightWallets.tumblr.com WideEyesTightWallets

      Also, is it just me, or is Towni’s jacket too wide in the shoulders? Something seemed off to me, took a bit to put my finger on it.

  • Phil

    What? How can be Alex the least?! His suit is just as wonderful as glasses or shoes and it totally flatters his body type.

    • popStar

      I second that. Extra points for a creative description too.

  • Bob

    Jeez guys! You are making it tough to vote for one person. Towni and Wes could be in a magazine with those outfits.

  • Erni

    Towni-the perfect juxtaposition between smart casual and dressed up-

  • Anonymous

    Alex’ quote is epic!

  • Michael S

    Wes. Low cut henleys kill it this time of year

  • Aleks

    Is Towni wearing sunglasses with another pair in his breast pocket?

    • http://tsbmen.com Townsend

      I’ve got my eyeglasses in my pocket. Practically blind without them.

      • Aleks

        Well played, Towni for the win! (love the toe caps)
