Happy almost holiday season! I hope everyone is able to take some time away from work, school or whatever you do, to enjoy time with your family and friends. It's been a heck of a 2016 and I'm really looking forward to 2017! I just want to say thank you again for all of your support along the way. It is with your support that makes this journey worth it (all 86,000+ followers on IG)!
I'm sharing with you a holiday mix of a lot of different colors, textures and patterns. My friend and I went to Michigan Avenue for this post. I was actually meeting with a master tailor from Senszio to work on two custom suits. I'll be sure to share a lot more details with you on this once the suit arrive!
This outfit combines a lot of different elements. It's that 'subtle boldness' that I strive to achieve in most of my outfits.
The staple piece is this amazing cashmere/wool blazer from O.N.S. Clothing. O.N.S. is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. They have very reasonable price points and their quality is exceptional. Not to mention they are vertically integrated to control the entire sourcing through production process.
Under the blazer I've layered a custom waistcoat from Oliver Wicks and a custom shirt from Original Stitch. If you're in the market for a custom dress shirt, I would absolutely head over to Original Stitch. You can design every single aspect of the shirt and it won't break the bank.
The briefcase! What about the briefcase?! This is from a really cool company mywalit. Lots of affordable products ranging from cardholder to briefcases and the leather quality is top notch.
Daniel Wellington has basically taken over the watch world and I'm proud to be rocking their Classic Black and Rose Gold Cuff for this shoot! If you want 15% off be sure to use code "PROFESSIONAL15" at check out.
The tie and pocket square are from The Tie Bar, who continue to be a leader in this space with very affordable and high quality products. They just released dress shirts as well that I post frequently on my IG.
The shoes. Ahhhhh the shoes. These have been an IG favorite since I started posting them. The Allen Edmonds Strandmok with custom black Dainite sole. More to come on these! Perfect for the winter.
The pants are Duckie Brown pants that I had a tailor do A LOT of work on. I wanted a perfect taper and a 2 inch cuff. The socks are from Boardroom Socks, the make a seriously high quality product. The belt is from Anson Belt (lots of combos to mix and match)!
