The Finishing Touches feat. Brandon Murphy
December 10th, 2014
Our friend Brandon Murphy, as previously featured here, is an up-and-coming stylist in NYC with a range of clients from corporate executives to professional athletes.
Most of his clients just want to look as cool as he does, so we asked him to share a few of his personal styling tricks with us.
Brandon knows a thing or two about pairing fabrics together. Notice the variation in the textures here; flannel jacket, oxford shirt, tweed vest, worsted trousers, pebbled boots.
This is also another version of the 3-piece mash-up.

Suited on the Move
A well-dressed gentleman can be tailored for any occasion, even if he’s on the move.
Here Brandon pairs a trim-cut suit with a beefy turtleneck and a pair of sneakers that are perfect for pounding the pavement in NYC.
The finishing touch here is the denim collar peaking out of the turtleneck.

Don’t Forget the Accessories
Here’s a move we don’t see very often: long-sleeve polo layering, which works great under a flannel jacket.
It’s all about the accessories here again; the tweed newsboy, the lace-trimmed pocket square, the braided leather belt… It’s the details that bring a look together.

Thanks, as always, for reading and special thanks to Brandon for the inspiration!
Yours in style,
