Athleisure: Let’s Talk About It

If there's one thing you've probably learned by now, it's that I'm not very big on trends. There's a big difference between being on-trend/in-style and having style. A focus on trends as a form of personal style ensures that you're always chasing the next thing and will undoubtedly amass a collection of clothes that, after one season, will sit in your closet in perpetuity and leave you to ponder, "What was I thinking?" when you do finally get around to cleaning out said closet.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Message In A Bottle: Lacoste L.12.12

To say that I'm thrilled to be home after 37 days on the road would be the understatement of the year. I always have the oddest feeling when I finally do return home, however. And that is that no matter how long I've been away – a day or two, a week, a month – it always feels like I never left. Sure, there are symbols of my long absence, like piles of mail to open, suitcases to unpack, and a bare refrigerator to restock, but I generally feel like I'm picking up right where I left off. It's like that friend you have who you see once every five years but every time you get together it's as though no time has passed at all.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Everyday Classic: Khaki Trench In-Between

In your day to day, what's the first coat you think to grab before heading out the door? Peacoat? Quilted jacket? Leather bomber? Wool topcoat? Something military-inspired? How about a khaki trench coat? Because of it's timeless style and the fact that it pairs so well with a suit, a khaki trench might not be the first coat that jumps to mind. But like all classic menswear pieces, it's got versatility built in. Add a classic touch to an everyday look with a lightweight khaki trench.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Mixing Fall Fabrics: Denim, Tweed, and Flannel

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.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Falling into Autumn with Ted Baker

If one thing is clear, it's that autumn is here on the east coast. Time for heavier fabrics, sweaters, layering, leather dress boots, and all the other seasonal menswear-related things that make it my absolute favorite season. I spent this past weekend with friends in New York City celebrating my birthday and enjoying the first taste of fall air. I also had the opportunity to stop by Ted Baker to check out some of their new fall selection. Here, I've styled three of my favorites – all perfect for stepping up your fall style.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Terrace Dynamics

Readers with musical inclinations will recognize this title as a play on a term used to describe abrupt changes in volume without crescendos or decrescendos in between. I wish I could say there was a deeper meaning as to how it relates to this post, but rather than manufacture one, I'll just tell you that there's not. What I am referring to, however, is something I noticed during my recent trip to LA—namely, the prevalence of the rooftop bar.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Changing Patterns

I wear a lot of blues and browns. And I mean, a lot. Just a quick glance through the Style Guide will confirm that. They're classic foundational colors in menswear and I always feel great in them. However, wearing a similar color palate frequently makes me a little restless. How can you keep it interesting, but still subtle and stylish? One way is to throw a little pattern into the mix.  VIEW MORE ▶︎
