What’s in Our Closets

Our team decided to give our readers a rare look into our personal selves. We are at heart purveyors of #Menswear, but in all honesty, we believe there is intrinsic value in every piece of clothing we own. These are not just things to us. With that being said, the idea came to us one day to literally share with you, the readers, what we prize most. Beyond the latest and trend piece, beyond the cool and more towards what is important. Everyone of us chimed in and shared just a little bit of ourselves, through, well, our clothes.

Oscar Wilde’s Lord Goring professed himself to be “the only person of the smallest importance in London at present who wears a buttonhole.” Unfortunately wearers today may share Goring’s description as buttonholes have become something many only wear to weddings. A naked lapel to me, is not an option. So, color  your life with the sturdy buttonholes of Boutonnière London, they are one of my favorites.

Ryan Neveen – “Sperry x Band of Outsiders Chukka Boot”

My go to Fall Shoe is my Sperry x Band of Outsiders Chukka Boot. Very versatile and can be worn with just about everything, dressing up or dressing down. Designed in a red and blue suede colorway, they brighten up the darker fall attire that I usually wear during the season. And seriously, they look bad ass.

Neil Watson  – Red Florentine leather bracelet

Given to me by a shop owner in Florence, He told me that it was “Multo Elegante” and that I HAD to have it. In Italian of course. I wear it everyday as a reminder of kindness in the world. And of course my time in Italy, now my second home.

Chris Dam- Vintage 1950’s Naval Pea Coat

 

    “I sized down to a true 36R and it fits like a glove. It’s super comfortable, warm, and broken in. I found it at a flea market outside of Cincinnati and instantly fell in love with it. It’s one of those coats that I’ll hopefully pass down to my son one day.”

Corey Knight – His perfect Navy Sportcoat

” I always have a hard time finding clothes that fit without breaking the bank however while waiting for my wife I stopped at thrift store to pass the time. I came across a navy blazer with no tags and surprisingly it fit, well it fit after my tailor got a hold of it. It has become my go to jacket. The Versatility of a navy blazer is second to none in a man’s wardrobe.  “
