When the weather turns crisp, we suggest holding out on wearing a coat for as long as possible. This is the optimal time for men’s clothing—a shirt under a sweater, with a blazer or puffer vest and, of course, a scarf. Like a tie designed for the elements, it adds some color and texture, especially come winter when you’re bundled up from your knees to your neck. How you knot it is up to you, though this season offers some that don’t tie at all. (ValetMag)
There’s a reason why every man should have an oxford cloth shirt in his closet. Slip the right one on and you’ll instantly look put-together while feeling as though you’re wearing nothing more than your favorite T-shirt. It is the everyman’s shirt. For me, that go-to oxford has always been from the Gap. And with Patrick Robinson at the helm, this classic’s now even better. The fit is dead on: tapered, not tight and not too long, should you want to leave it untucked. The butter soft cotton has been washed for softness, but oxford cloth isn’t a thin fabric by any means—which is why it makes for such a great base for whatever you wear this fall. $44.50, at Gap (Valetmag.com)

Some great stuff.
Really like the layering steez
I could do with out the belt action
I really like the more casual classic pieces.
Making a move away from the bright all over print steez.
Blood, Sweat, & Tears…
Once there done they’re done. Get them while they last!

We’re looking at Fall/Winter stuff already?
Dope none the less.
Chinos are a classic staple, but there’s nothing worse than a pair of droopy, ill-fitting khakis like your dad wears. Okay, there are many worse things. But it’s hard to find the perfect pair that’s slim (yet don’t pinch around the waist), and comfortable (yet don’t end up looking like sweatpants after a few washes). Difficult, yes, but not impossible. Case in point: Rugby’s New University pant. They fit like a pair of A.P.C. New Standards—sturdy, trim and slightly tapered at the ankle. Most importantly, they don’t suffer from a common problem of affordable chinos: the dreaded baggy ass. And speaking of affordability, a pair only costs about 70 bucks. $69.50 at Rugby
Dope stuff. Black, Grey & white palatte is ill.
Just when the enigmatic hip-hop artist had willed himself to pop-icon status, he broke down in the spotlight. Now West says he is done with music and he’s ready to pour all his “superhero” energy into conquering fashion-just as soon as he gets his flower arrangements looking right

Variety is over-rated. In these uncertain economic times, the frugal sartorialist is well-served by a shirt for all seasons. Walker Lamond, the dapper writer behind the popular 1,001 Rules For My Unborn Son, recommends an American classic. His ode to the white cotton oxford shirt:
A little too bulky for my steez.
Dope none the less.
You are reading about me is because…
Homage is ferocious.
I’ve been know to…
Wear the same pair of shorts for an entire summer. (The shorts are ‘ill…they are 90′s striped jean shorts from Guess…)
Not sure who’s pulling these off.
Props to anyone that tries.
I might pop up with the red joints.
I’m a sucker for monochrome. Available now at Oki-ni.
SILLY THING flexing a bit.
This is what a “Line” should look like.
Highlights are the Bow tie steez and the Varsity jacket dressed up a bit
Infinite shades of grey for the winter. wings + horns kills it with this piece
