McQueen and Dunaway, 1968.
I hope to one day have a tuxedo made for myself and, when I do, it will be a one button, single breasted, peak lapel jacket with a scooped, roll lapel waistcoat, like McQueen’s.
I'm about to graduate high-school and go to college and I really want to upgrade my style from the urban teenager look to a grown, well groomed man typed look. Any suggestions on where to buy the clothing needed for the look at cheap prices?
Although I won’t spit the hyperboles that most do when answering this question and say, “clothes are the last thing that you should worry about in college”, I will say they aren’t nearly as important as you probably think they are at this juncture.
Don’t worry about brands. Here’s what you need. A solid pair of jeans. A solid pair of chinos. A few simple t shirts. A few simple button downs. A nice sweater or two. A suit and tie for formals. Depending on the weather, some type of jacket. A decent pair of knock around shoes. Superman underoos.
Most importantly, you need excitement. You’re about to start the greatest 4, maybe 5, years of your life.
God, I miss college.
Measure your clothing properly.
In Medias Res // Chris Callis, IV.
In Medias Res is a project in which I pay homage to the people who inspire my own sense of style with a work-week long, daily updated photo series.
Chris’ best kit. Rainy days with the ROTM stompers and a true blazer. The guy has some style.
Some of Riccardo Bestetti’s slightly more austere bespoke creations.
Some of the finest hand sewn vamp stitching I’ve ever seen.
A hatchgrain chukka that’s lasted so well it barely loses it’s texture.
A seamless heel counter.
