The Sunday Coffee | Lafayette


  Where: Lafayette Drinking: Americano – Sundays are made for the coffee shop.  Whether its starting the day bright and early or catching up on some rest to start Monday feeling fresh, a Sunday isn’t complete without a trip to the coffee shop.  I’ve become fond of the ritual.  Even if its just a quick stop at the counter and take…

The Peacoat


As much of classic military wears, the peacoat has stuck around for quite some time.  With its Naval roots tracing back to the Dutch, it has become one of those truly “timeless” pieces that has stood tall through the test of time.  Born to fight any and all elements, from rain to wind, it is still looked upon today as…

MTM Contrast Club Collar Shirt


[Photos by Sebastian P.] Part of my admiration for clothing is the nostalgia and functionality that comes with it.  Outside of craftsmanship and attention to detail, the purpose of dress has always been fascinating.  Before “trends” were the anchor of design, everything had a purpose.  Not to say that trends weren’t relevant decades ago, but in today’s world, functionality seems…

Last Look from NYFWM


A little (or a lot) late, but here is my final day look from NYFWM back in February.  With a slight chill in the air, this brown flannel suit was perfect for the temperature.  Stayed with slightly warmer tones, but overall, relatively simple. The suit is MTM from ModernTailor and is one of my favorites.  Wide peak lapel, 3 roll…

Day 2 Look from NYWM


Here is a closer look at what Day 2 of NYFWM looked like.  Another indecisive day in terms of weather, but overall pretty comfortable day.  It was a good day to bring out a three-piece suit with a little bit of old school feel. This three piece suit is a true workhorse.  Its MTM from PointClickTailors, and the double breasted…

Day 1 Look from NYFWM


The first day of NYFWM was a gloomy one.  Mother nature couldn’t decide if it wanted to rain or shine, but nonetheless, a fun day.  My look, unintentionally, matched that of the weather.  Dark, gloomy, lugubrious (word of the day).  Also, heavily Japanese influenced from each piece. The rollneck has found its way into my rotation more-and-more after picking up…
