Happy hump day everyone!


…ready for summer…

Temperatures are rising up and its feeling more and more like summer here in sunny So Cal so I think its just about time to start wearing linen.


On me: Perry Ellis linen sport coat, H&M cotton/linen long sleeved shirt, Levi’s linen tie, Swank tie bar, H&M chinos, GH Bass penny loafers with Sperry no show socks.


And here is another shot without the jacket.

Summer is almost here, Happy Tuesday peeps!!!



June gloom has been looming over Southern California the past couple of days, and this morning even provided a drizzle, maybe the skies were upset that the Pacers was blown out in Miami.  Its chilly in the mornings and evenings and its been toasty during the afternoon… so why not bust out the windbreaker, light enough for the hotter part of the day and providing enough cover when it gets cooler.

On me:  wind breaker from Target, Club Room dress shirt, knit tie, swank tie bar, dockers khakis, sperry no show socks, nunn bush kiltie tassel loafers, trashness anchor bracelet

Happy Tuesday everyone!

…blue, blue, blue…


What better time to put in a late post than throwback Thursday… Shot about a month ago, way back before I lost all that hair, at our office rooftop.

On me: Levi’s denim jacket, H&M chambray shirt, Levi’s linen tie, Swank tie bar, floral pocket square, Trashness tibetan bracelet, H&M chinos, GH Bass penny loafers

Happy throwback Thursday everyone!

As TSB Men would say, bring your “A” game…

I totally forgot a client was coming over to visit the office, its good thing that I decided to wear this combo though.

Spring time with hints of summer temps in the afternoon have been the norm here in So Cal lately, so I paired lightweight fabrics with a slightly warmer feel of the wool sport coat, ready for the lower night time temperatures.
