One of the questions I'm often asked is, "Do you get dressed up all the time?" The answer: no. Absolutely not. There are days when the last thing I want to think about is putting on a button-up, blazer, tie, and a pair of dress shoes. Particularly on the weekends, I just want to catch up on some sleep, roll out of bed, and head to my favorite coffee shop. It's on these days that I'll reach for the casual essentials. VIEW MORE ▶︎

Quick check on the elements of fall style. Color. Sweaters. Layering. Scarves. Patterns. Outerwear. Boots. Do you need to incorporate these elements in order to have great fall style? Not necessarily. I'm on record saying that I find a lot of inspiration from women's fashion. And Bill Cunningham's most recent On the Street video got me thinking: why not catch fall off guard with an outfit of blacks and grays? VIEW MORE ▶︎
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 ▶︎
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. VIEW MORE ▶︎
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. VIEW MORE ▶︎
Can you do it all? I've been thinking about this more and more recently as I've felt as though I've been hanging on by a thread while traveling the past few weeks. Writing a successful blog requires you to be much more than a "blogger." What is a blogger anyway? In my experience, you carry a laundry list of titles. I'm a businessman, a creative director, an author, an editor, a location scout, a stylist, a social media manager, an accountant. Having to manage all of these things, it's no wonder I feel stretched a little thin sometimes. Maybe it's time to start thinking about adding some additional support to the team! VIEW MORE ▶︎
