Greetings from Albuquerque, everyone. It’s hard to believe, but Rob and I have been on the road for an entire month. And today, I’m finally flying home for a brief second before heading to New York to shoot for an upcoming collaboration and then immediately on to Milan for some much needed R&R as well as a few meetings. One of the challenges of traveling so much is making sure we’ve got content in the can, which means we’ll shoot as much as possible before long trips like the one we’ve been on. Today’s look is one that we shot prior to leaving and mixes up a few of my favorite fall fabrics.

If it was practical for me to wear a three-piece suit all the time, I would wear one every damn day. I spend a lot time talking about a three-piece suit’s versatility, but let’s talk a bit about the whole package. Timeless, classic, confident, masculine. A three-piece suit can look put together and nonchalant at the same time. The problem with wearing one on a daily basis is that, unless you’re in a line of work where a three-piece suit is required, it can come off as much too formal for modern life. Dress down a three-piece suit by swapping the jacket for a chunky knit shawl collar cardigan.

A small, though not insignificant, milestone this week as the Ask He Spoke Style series turns 10! Thanks to everyone for your support, positive feedback, and of course, all your questions. I’ve enjoyed producing these videos and they’re just the tip of the iceberg in terms of the new kinds of video series’ and content we’ll be producing in the new year.
This week’s question deals with a place we’ve all likely found ourselves at some point – a style rut. While there are definitely merits to having a uniform of sorts, the same old, same old can sometimes make you feel uninspired. What do you do when you find yourself getting dressed in what amounts to default mode? Watch for a few tips.

Greetings from Texas, everyone. Rob and I have been traveling for nearly a month now and we are looking forward to finally heading home at the end of this week. I know we’re in the midst of fall, but it’s been feeling a lot like winter, even down here in the south. It was 36 degrees a couple days ago when we were in San Antonio! Crazy weather, but at least the transition heading back east won’t be quite as jarring. As it’s started to cool down, it’s time to start thinking about layering a little differently. Here’s a creative approach to layering with multiple sweaters.
