abc's of men's fashion - 56

blazer

Originated in the 1860s as a short jacket with patch pockets worn for cricket and tennis. In recent years,  and the blazer has arguably never been so popular, or so versatile. Gone are the laddish days of the Nineties and Noughties when it was cool not to make an effort. Dressing with elegance is now very much the fashion, something that has resulted in a resurgence in British tailoring, hence the rise of the blazer as a key component in the modern man’s day-to-day wardrobe.

A blazer, particularly a navy one, is the skeleton key that unlocks several looks. It can be dressed up with a natty pocket square and worn with a crisp white shirt, silk striped tie, smart trousers and brogues. Alternatively, it can be worn smart-casually with a button-down chambray shirt, chinos and boat shoes, or dressed down with a plain or Breton-striped T-shirt, indigo jeans and white Jack Purcells. It befits men of all ages and sizes and suits a great many occasions.

Traditionally cut a little shorter than a suit jacket, a blazer is usually worn as a ‘separate’ – ie with non-matching trousers rather than as part of the informal suit Mr Amies mentions. You do see some men wearing a suit jacket separately as a blazer, but it doesn’t look quite right because it’s usually too long.

If ever there was a garment that cracks the tricky smart-casual dress code, the blazer is surely it.

Help our brother out

A close friend of ours, Nick Huynh, was recently hit by a drunk driver while out riding his bike. He is, by far, one of the greatest people we've ever known, and right now he needs our help.

 

 

Nick is selfless, kind, unbelievably humble, and a total badass. 

He is currently in critical condition and will require multiple surgeries on top of those he's already had. We're using www.gofundme.com/helpfornick to raise money to cover as much of the medical expenses as we possibly can.

If you are able, please stop by the site and make a donation, and keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Anything and everything helps. Also, feel free to use the following graphic to spread the word on social media.

d is for double breasted.

courtesy of Mr. Hardy Amies:

Nature has made all men (and perhaps more fortunately, all women) double-breasted; and of course, all jackets follow suit. A double-breasted jacket really means therefore one with double-breasted fastenings. In this form of fastening the placing of the buttons is most important. The line is often emphasised by having the top button on either side placed where no fastening is possible. It follows therefore that the trick is most useful when a really narrow waistline is being sought. 

If double-breasted jackets were on the wane in 1964, then we have seen a veritable drought of the style for the past couple of decades. This is partly down to the sea change that took place after the 1980s, when all things Wall Street, including big shoulders, big trousers and big double-breasted lapels, fell from favour and were replaced with tighter, slimmer more high-buttoning single-breasted styles. This has remained the norm – with variations in button numbers from one to four, but always on a single-breasted jacket – for both suits and separates. However, some brave individualists have been waving the double- breasted banner for some time.

The beauty of the style is that it is very flattering, making a man look more like a superman. The most modern way of wearing it is as a separate jacket – a blazer or sports jacket alternative – with jeans or relaxed trousers in fabrics such as moleskin, corduroy or cavalry twill. You’ll look slim and chic and stand out. What more could a man want.

kanye west vs. sam smith - tell me i'm the only one (carlos serrano mix).

unless you've been actively avoiding music, you should know who both of these artists are. they both are amazing in their own respects and when you bring them together you make magic. their tracks get rinsed regularly and i'm sure you can't stand the sound of "latch" just like everyone else. thankfully, you don't have to with this track. this awesome mix by carlos serrano brings kanye's "can't tell me nothing" to life again with sam smith's "i'm not the only one."

so sit back and relax with this track. enjoy.

gustin grabs.

In a previous article we talked about how Gustin works. Essentially, they make good quality stuff on limited runs of production based on predetermined demand. It's like Kickstarter for menswear. Once an item reaches a certain number of backers, they go into production and as soon as it's finished, those backers receive the product at a better price than a normal retail environment.

That being said, here are some of the current items up for grabs from Gustin.

cone w/ peach selvedge denim

 

navy american chino

 

italian double black selvedge denim

 

Japan slate blue twill shirt

 

moss red flannel shirt

 

USA hickory stripe work shirt

 

waxed dark oak trucker jacket

 

the handmade heavyweight belt

 

indigo selvedge apron

 

brown waxed dopp kit

 

saddle brown brass belt

 

classic belt

coldplay - trouble (treo remix).

the treo boys just dropped a new track and it should be playing through your speakers, headphones, monitors, or whatever you've got right now. 

the tune is an absolute hit. they've taken the mellow feels that coldplay notoriously delivers, paired them with the right amount of drums that bring you up and leave you in the air to the sound of chris martin's voice. they've given us something to vibe out to, dance to and sing along to. the track's got it all. 

plus, i've seen them drop this track a couple times in their set and people lose their shit over it. they build up the crowd, get them hyped and them lay them out with this tune. knock out every time. 

okay, enough words, listen to the damn thing already and don't forget to head over the treo soundcloud to check out more tunes, download this one and show your friends.

abc's of men's fashion - 55

Quality.

"If you use it every day, buy the very best. If you don’t, don’t." The goal here is to have fewer items in your closet that look better and last longer. Think of the items you wear often, whether blue jeans or a navy suit, buy one and be done. A $200 pair of selvedge jeans will outlast four pairs of regular Levi’s and look better in the process. But socks? Socks are socks, man--buy some that look good but don't spend an arm and a leg.

adidas tubular.

adidas finally starts showing up to the game. i think they were tired of sitting on the bench and realized that they were falling behind. so what do they do? they step up with Nic Galway's absolutely banger of a shoe, the adidas tubular. these beauts are a true work of art. they are definitely on the list of this year's must have's for probably everyone. they're heavily influenced by the y-3 qasa, which is another one of favorites, and you can clearly see it by just looking at the shoe. these should come without the heavy price that y-3's usually come with which will also be nice. stay tuned for more updates which will probably be easy, all the blogs are freaking out over these and for good reason. release date keeps jumping around the end of november some time. so stay on it.
