I’m going with three-pieces of suits today, in a healthy mixture of Summer-ready fabrics: straw, linen/silk, pure hemp, tropical wool hopsack, sockless suede loafers.

Alejandro Rodriguez

Nobody wears distressed menswear like downtown LA designer Alejandro Rodriguez. From the vintage hat, to the torn-up layering tee, to the beat-up denim, to the roughed-up cowboy boots. This is one version of West Coast style that we are really feeling lately.

Remember the bespoke jeans that I had made by Camillo Love? He also made this pair for our Art Director Alex, using an over-dyed indigo denim from Japan. In true Articles of Style fashion, Alex is keeping them casually tailored today.

Our friend Ernie also knows a thing or two about mixing and matching suit separates. Today it’s a double-breasted formal jacket in a tropical wool with a pair of linen-blend glenplaid trousers.

He’s a man of detail, as you can see by the perfectly folded pocket square and just the right amount of tie bar elevation.
