j.crew fall '16.

j.crew released a handful of it's looks for fall '16 at fashion week. these blends of throwback styles and modern day fits are pretty killer. The ideas are fresh and relevant without being too trendy. This line is looking like the collection that brings j.crew back into popularity for men's fashion.

While you can't purchase these pieces yet, they should be launching in August, which gives you plenty of time to start planning your attack.

travel with style.

this video by casey nesitat features the ludlow traveler suit by j.crew and is absolutely brilliant.

The Ludlow suit features:

  • Tailored, modern cut with a trim silhouette.
  • Narrow lapel.
  • Cotton.
  • Two-button closure.
  • Nonfunctional buttons at cuffs.
  • Pickstitching along collar, lapel and pockets.
  • Double vent.
  • Bemberg lining.
  • Slim fit.
  • Sits below waist, slimmer through hip and thigh, with a narrower leg.
  • Cut slightly shorter to ensure a clean break at the shoe.
  • Cotton.
  • Zip fly.
  • On-seam and back welt pockets.

The suit is made of cotton, and while I would never ever recommend buying a serious suit made of cotton, this isn't made to be a formal/serious business suit. as i mentioned in the title, it's a traveling suit. That doesn't mean you can't wear it for anything else, don't treat this as a professional suit, and don't have this as your first/only suit.

that being said, it's still a pretty cool idea--a lightweight, comfortable suit you can wear traveling without worrying too much about wrinkles, or maintenance. plus, apparently it's great for all travel activities: snowboarding, motorcycle riding, boating, surfing, scoring babes, flying, skateboarding on planes, standing in junkyards, and pretty much anything else.

is there something to that top button?

i was recently asked the other day why i button my shirt all the way up.

it was an unexpected quesiton that i have never been asked and it caught me off guard. 

i had just met her and we were talking about how she hates handshakes, that’s why she hugged me. and then she pauses for a moment, looks at me with a serious, should-i-ask-this-question-look, and then goes for it. 

“Can I ask you something?” 

Which, at first, made me wonder what the heck is she going to ask me? I’m almost certain I’d never met her before, let alone seen her, so I know I hadn't said something stupid to offend her or hit on her (but not really). What does she want to ask me?

So I said, “Shoot.” 

She then looks (from what I could tell) up and down my body (probably just my shirt) and asks, “why do you button your top botton? i’ve seen a couple people do it and i don’t get it.” 

I was not expecting this question. it kind of didn’t seem like a real question – like she was messing with me or something. I think i even reached up to see if the top button on my shirt was even buttoned (it was, it always is, I’m not even sure as to why i checked because i knew it was). 

My well thought out response to her initial question was, “what?” 

To which she replied, “is it some kind of, like, secret thing i just don’t know about or have some meaning? Like only certain people do it or something?” 

This made me laugh a little because then i knew she was being serious. She wasn't messing with me and genuinely wanted to know. 

I shook my head and told her, “No. It’s just a style thing.”  

She then asked if it was a RVCA shirt because apparently they have one that looks just like the one I was wearing. Once I told her it was a J.Crew shirt she then dubbed me J.Crew and called me that for the rest of the night.

This made me think about button ups and people buttoning them all the way up. I started to think about all my buddies that wear button ups regularly and all of them button the top button too. This was normal practice to me, almost second nature to just button it all the way up. 

When I think back, I honestly can’t remember a time when I didn’t button the top button. It was only a couple years ago that I moved button ups into the regular rotation, but even then it was all the way to the top.

My curiosity got the best of me so I turned to the one place I knew would have answers (no, not google) – Tumblr. I searched ‘button up’ and found a healthy mix of gentlemen with their top buttons buttoned and plenty of Pitti worthy gentlemen without their shirts buttoned all the way up.

It all comes down to style – how do you want to look? How do you want your shirt to feel? How come this top button is choking me? Every man has his own look and style. That’s what makes this whole 'fashion' thing interesting and unique. The style that everyone brings to the table.

j.crew 2014 fall/winter collection.

who would i be if i didn't post j.crew's 2014 f/w collection?

they just dropped their latest at nyfw for men and women and i have to say i'm about it.

i grabbed a few of my favorite looks to share with you guys, but there are a few more out there and i support you doing a quick google search to see the rest of the men's collection. 

i'm a huge fan of that olive coat with a fur hood look. that guy crushes it with the denim jacket underneath the coat and the boots. probably my favorite look in the collection.

any of you have a favorite? let me know. and let me know if i didn't post your favorite look i'm down for shares.

fall is for flannel.

fall is among us and that means jacket season is right around the corner. we’re still in that awkward end of summer/beginning of fall stage where it’s still hot as hell during the day and drops off drastically when the sun sets. keep those down feather jackets in the closet for now though, we don’t need those yet. light layers and light outerwear are kings right now and flannel shirts are sitting on top of the throne. 

it's time to tap into your flannel reserves or pick some new ones up. if you've got a beard great, but if you don’t it’s time to grow it out and get your paul bunyan on. be careful though, you don’t want to look like an actual lumber jack or maybe you do. i don’t know, or really care, and that whole outdoor, camping, poler lifestyle thing is pretty trendy right now so who knows? maybe that’s the exact look you’re going for. we support you no matter what over here at dripcult. but what i do know is that a well fitted flannel can help you avoid these immediate lumber jack associations. it’ll show people that you took the time to find clothing that fits because you care about how you look and not about taking an axe to trees. 

i took to the interwebs to see this fall’s flannel offerings form various companies and was quite pleased with my findings. check out some of my picks below. 

have any favorites or know of other places the cult should check out? drop us a line and let us know so we can share it.

Cheat Sheet for ties and pocket squares.

I came across this guide to tie and pocket square styles based on specific events/occasions, put out by J.Crew. I think they did a pretty good job with it, adding images to help visualize the presentation rather than simply describing it. Although there will always be events that don't fall under one of these basic categories, this is still a great reference to help point you in the right direction for using ties and pocket squares in varying degrees of formality.
