What I Wore Today: Tailor Game Strong

April 29th, 2015

Rule #1 of Articles of Style: bring your “A Game” every day!

“Tailor Game Strong”

Use the comments section below to tell us who’s style you’re appreciating today.



Alex with his new California hair and goatee is my new style icon. Here he shows us that a double-breasted suit jacket can be worn as a blazer with jeans, even frayed ones. Just make sure the fit of the jacket and jeans is consistent, and you complete the look with some good accessories, as Alex is known for doing.

DJ McDonald


You may remember DJ McDonald from a post we did on tying scarves which resulted in one of my favorite photos we’ve ever published (see: gangster stripe suit in front of Barclays Center). Coincidentally he’s in NYC giving us his version of the db and jeans, complete with the statement-making accessories as well. I have to say, this is a great example of using staple menswear pieces to create a versatile casual look.

You already know I have a thing for pajama shirts. I like the simple shape, and the comfort. Maybe it’s a subconscious Heffner inspiration. Or maybe a Gosling. Either way, this silk pajama shirt and tropical wool trouser is perfect for a warm night out near the ocean.

Rich Freshman


Rich Freshman might just be the coolest menswear cat in LA, seen here with his signature tape measure and streetwear-x-custom-tailoring blend. You know we love a slim linen suit trouser, especially dressed down with some woven leather slip-ons, a scoop neck tee, and a lightweight Spring bomber. This guy really gets it.
