J. Lindeberg S/S2013 (outtake)
I knew I wanted to do something different to highlight JL’s amazing line of summer suits but I lack budget or time to leave New York, so I hacked it a bit. I decided to shoot everything from above, tweaking the perspective enough to make it more interesting. This meant Mitch carrying a 10 foot ladder around lower Manhattan and us sneaking in shots between the traffic.

I always wanted Vulpin ties to be fun. Menswear has a tendency to take itself too seriously and this is my reaction to that. Ties are screen printed with vinyl in Brooklyn and handmade in New York City. $60 over here.
Today: J. Lindeberg unconstructed wool sportcoat and shirt, Burberry Tie, Unis pants, Cole Haan spectator wingtips, Moscot specs.
Got this varsity jacket at Sweet Lorain in Cleveland, but like most vintage pieces for men the tailoring was way off. I went to a guy on the Lower East Side who does leather and had him take 4.5 inches out of the sleeves and 2.5 inches out of the body. The result, a well tailored 40 year old varsity jacket for under $100 all in.

I was lucky enough to be asked by Lucky Magazine to shoot the newest installment of their Web Pose-Off. This time asking some of the loveliest ladies of the web to mimic their favorite #menswear bloggers. Make sure you head over to Lucky to read John’s amazing captions and a big thanks to Jesse for putting this together and Megan, Holly, Rachel and Marissa for generally being great. Also thanks to all the photographers who inspired this, it was fun to recreate your work.
“New Yorkers have always needed something to fetishize over, and I’m just happy that presently, my store is one of those things”
Long considered one of the best menswear designers and shops in the country shopping at Sid Mashburn is something best done slowly and deliberately. I spent a few hours earlier this week drinking beer, buying clothes and listening to Sid tell stories and crack jokes. Even if you can’t shop in store, you can get your souther fix online here.
