My theme week: The Bearded Sartorialist

for whatever reason, the way i dress is catching everyones eye this whiskerino, so i thought i might as well roll with it and give a guide to my sense of fashion (or lack there of). really i just find cheap stuff and try to make it look fancier than it really is.

so starting today, i bring you what should be in every mans closet, the staple shirt and tie combo. it doesnt matter who you are or what you look like, every guy can pull of this classic look. finding a shirt and matching tie is essential to every mans wardrobe for formal events or things like job interviews, and pairing it with a black trench is a look that will never go out of style.

Grey Button Up Shirt: $12 from Ross
Silk Calvin Klein Tie: $7 from Ross
Vintage Black Trench Coat: $30 from eBay
Black Trousers: $20 from H&M
Black/Brown Reversible Kenneth Cole Belt: $10 from Ross
Vintage Key Tie Clip: $3 from an antique store

I have a pair of pants with a rise that low. They don't fit properly. They fall down. That's why I go for pants like clame.

Have I mentioned that you happen to look freakishly similar to my newspaper editorship great uncle?

Because you do. And it scares me.

miguelito says:
you wear a suit so *well* @ace. i secretly like suits too. i just don't have many and i don't think i look great in them, either. meh.
Posted: Jan 12th, 2010 - 12:08am -
Ace says:
@miguelito to be honest, all of my suits are from thrift stores. i have NEVER paid full price to get a suit. as for you not looking good in them, really you probably just dont have one that fits you right, or you have the wrong color. everyone can pull off a black suit though. everyone. i promise.

miguelito says:
i need some black trousers. but the only two H&M stores around here are whack. 1 is women's only, and the other is in a mall that smells like a barfsplosion
