Menswear Humor Courtesy Of @croquissartoriaux

"A grey suit? Why should we sell grey suits? What about having a look at some funeral parlor?"

"Firstly, he began going on specialized forum on the Internet, reading blogs... Then he changed the way he dressed and met only people like him. Actually, his friends say they don't recognize him. He only eats pasta (all'arrabiata like in Napoli he says), and strikes a pose 5 times a day in the direction of Florence. Experts consider Maurice (who now wants to be called Maurizio) is a very rare case of sartorial online auto radicalization"

"Sure, falling was painful. But believe me, the pain was nothing in comparison with what I felt when the surgeon began cutting my bespoke jacket's sleeve to operate!"

"And it's only when I was in the subway that I realized the scale of the tragedy: i was wearing brown bluchers with a grey suit!! No way I can come back home, I live since this morning in fear of meeting a friend that would make an ironical comment, or worst, meeting a dapper stranger that would see me, say nothing, but of whom silent disapproval would be the most serious affront"

"Me? Getting my hunting license ? Thanks but no... I'm only here to pay off the purchasing of my tweed sport coats!"

"Sure, with this freezing cold, I could just have closed my coat. But you must admit it would have been such a "pitti" to hide to everybody this wonderful riot of colors, fabrics and patterns made by the multiple layering I had to combine thanks to this above mentioned freezing cold !"

"I don’t care whether it’s rainy or it’s windy; since today, I’m legally allowed to wear my spring outfit !"

An Athleisurely Take On The Half Zip Sweater

Here we go again with another pop of color and yes it’s another sweater. I’ll have some more dapper looks coming soon but for now to survive these below zero NYC temperatures I’m living in knitwear. This time I’m trying out a zippered collar. This style could easily be mistaken for your fathers Ralph Lauren sweaters but I promise you they’re not. Zippered neck lines are trending right now and can be found in all the high street shops as well as your pick of designer brands. They certainly aren’t formal and I know many people have the idea that they look great over a shirt and tie but I strongly disapprove of that look. It’s middle aged, basic and lacks originality. Instead wear it have way zipped with a little skin showing. But don’t zip it all the way down. Trust me you don’t want to look like “that guy”. Shop some of my favorites below and thanks as always for stopping by!

Those Buck Mason Essentials

I could just go on about how much I love this striped tee or how I think a striped tee is one of the biggest essentials for the spring and summer but I won’t. I’ll save that for another post. Instead let’s chat about Buck Mason. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are pretty much the perfect brand for the normal dude. By normal I mean the guy that cares about his appearance. He’s aware of the fact that style and fit are incredibly important in todays world but wearing a suit or rocking runway trends just don’t fit in with daily life.

He wears pieces that just make sense. I’m talking about pieces that are wearable and versatile. Jeans. tees, leather jackets and hoodies. We all love them and need them so you might as well have good ones that will last. Buck Mason has you covered with affordable pieces that look cool AF. Shop some of my favorites down below!
