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…

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…

Me | Linen-Wool Herringbone


Mother nature continues to be indecisive about when Spring shall arrive so I took it upon myself to pull out my linen-wool jacket. It may not have been ideal conditions, but the sun was out so at least it looks warm. This jacket has a very interesting texture with the wool-linen mix and the larger scaled herringbone. I again turned…

Me | Cotton Season


A steady bit of warmth seems to have brought some stability to the Spring season (sorry to those who have recently been hit with snow…). With this new found warmth, the casual cottons can make their appearance. Cotton tailoring is one of my favorite aspects of the warmer seasons. The inherently casualness of the fabric, as well as the sturdiness…

Me | Washed Cotton DB Jacket


Last week, I was able to dust off one of my favorite jackets for the day. This SuitSupply Boston fit jacket in Italian cotton is a great interpretation of casual tailoring. With it’s almost denim-like look, it is more versatile than it seems, and it works just as well with a shirt and tie as it does with a t-shirt.…

Me | Spring is in the Air


This past week, the temperatures began to rise. I was able to step out in a Spring appropriate look with lightweight chinos, an oxford shirt, and a denim jacket. By midday the jacket was gone, and it was nice to show a little bit of ankle. The OCBDs from Uniqlo are a great value, and this one in a mint…
