Have you ever wanted to be king of the #menswear blog-o-sphere?
Imagine waking up to a text message from Nick Wooster asking if you want to get brunch. “Nah braj,” you think to yourself. You and Michael Bastian already have plans to hit up Clinton St. Bakery because the pancakes are bomb and having a third risks you having to wait an additional 30 minutes to get seated. Maybe you can schedule him later to get some pork buns at Ippudo.
You get out of bed and throw on your favorite pair of McNairy camo trousers and your worn out Brooks Brothers ESF OCBD to start the day.
All you need now is the perfect pair of shoes.
While looking on ebay for a heavy winter blazer I've come across a lot of options that end up selling for $10 or less. I am hesitant not because they are cheap, but because it is a brand I don't know anything about. If it is my size and that cheap and I know nothing about the brand but like the look, do you think I should just go for it and cross my fingers?
For the guy eBaying tweed: Jesse @ PTO gave me some great tips when I was looking for my first tweed jacket. A good sign of quality is a close-up of the fabric--it should look like it's made of lots of different colors. Also, unless you're going for a deliberately vintage look, avoid dated details, like super-wide 70s lapels or super-low 80s gorges.
