1. Alex


Alex continues to step up his game, with a kind of a Cuban inspired look today.

Panama hat, black peak-lapel mohair suit, khaki linen shirt, and sharp black/brown monks.


“I inherited this amazing hand made Hawaiian Panama Hat from my step-father a few years ago. I think moving to LA finally gave me the courage to actually wear it.”


“I am madly in love with these black double monks that I was blessed with by Just A Men Shoe. They are amazingly comfortable and look so dope!”

2. Wes


Wes has been on a windowpane kick lately. Keeping it extra tailored, and representing Articles of Style well.

What you know about windowpane on solid in the same color?


“Forgive the bags under my eyes… work hard, party harder.”


“These are my new favorite loafers. I missed borrowing Dan’s so much that I said f-ck it, I’ll just buy my own.

Shout out to Towni, feel better my dude!”

  • Navy birds eye pattern socks Passed down ·
  • Tan burnished loafers by Ralph Lauren

3. Dan


Pulled out the beat-up vintage Levi’s 501s today. I love these things, and there’s something more natural about them on the West coast.

Keeping the upper body tailored in a green silk/cashmere herringbone jacket, brown seersucker waistcoat, and taupe glenplaid shirt.


With the weather in LA, I think I’ll be wearing my Spring/Summer fabrics long into the Fall.


Speaking of items I bought with my Esquire winnings, these Purple Label suede loafers were another one of those “lifetime” purchases.
