What I Wore Today: Bi-Coastal Tailoring

February 24th, 2015

What I Wore Today” is about real guys in their real clothes. This week I’m tapping two guys that I think always consistently bring their A-game.

“Bi-Coastal Tailoring”

It’s a gloomy “winter” day in downtown LA. I’m taking this opportunity to break out a mustard yellow hemp/wool/cashmere jacket, a forest green donegal tweed waistcoat, a brown gingham shirt, a taupe suit trouser, and a chocolate suede tassel slipper.

I’m all about soft-shouldered seasonal tailoring and I love hand-finished details, like the pic stitching down the outseam of these Angel Bespoke trousers.

Wes always looks sharp and often proves that in menswear less is more.

Today he’s putting his own spin on the color mustard, in the form of a trim wool turtleneck under a mean double-breasted bespoke suit. Extra points for the tortoise buttons and the Italian-made wingtips. Well played, player.

Angel & Faith

In my opinion, Angel Ramos is one of the best-dressed guys in the business. Everybody can take cues from his “sprezzy”, comfortably-tailored style, even his beautiful wife Faith who can sometimes be seen borrowing his signature cashmere overcoats.

To beat the serious cold in NYC Angel uses a fur felt fedora, a genuine alpaca overcoat, a tweed/cashmere windowpane sportcoat, a heavy broadcloth shirt, a pure cashmere tie, a grey flannel trouser, and an insulated leather alpine boot.

In menswear circles Angel is well known for his specific brand of bespoke tailoring, which typically involves a vary tasteful blend of textures and colors.

You won’t see too many coats that have this level of detail, in this lush of a fabric.

It takes a real artisan to work with this stuff. That’s pure alpaca!
