Reporting live from Buenos Aires this afternoon. Hope everybody’s week is going well! Having lived in tourist-heavy cities for the better part of my life, I’ve always been extra cautious to not look like one when I travel abroad. As much as I appreciate the camera around the neck with a Yankees hat combo, I try my best to not stick out like the loud American that I know I am.
Enter Frank & Oak. Their timing on this collaboration could not have been more perfect. I was looking for some fall pieces to throw in my suitcase and they just launched their Fall collection. Pretty sure everyone’s favorite season is Fall. Something about the warmer tones, and being able to layer with different fabrics, it’s just a great season for men. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of chinos and these are it! You can tell just by grabbing them out of the box that these aren’t your cheaply made, disposable chinos. These bad boys have some weight to them! The fit is clinically perfect and the color is versatile enough to dress it up or down. I’ve paired them here with a tee from Frank & Oak, a denim jacket and some Adidas Stan Smiths.
That sweater you see me wear in the beginning of the video (which, btw, was shot & edited by my amazingly talented wife, Irene. No chill behind the lens!) is also a Frank & Oak piece. This is one of those investment pieces. It’s simple, elegant but speaks volumes with the right ensemble. I’ve kept it understated with some jet black chinos, Tag Heuer watch, Convey necklace, and quite possibly the best cappuccino I’ve had all week. That’s the beauty of men’s fashion – You never need to do too much to look put together. Just the right pairings of a few key elements.
Bye for now! Next stop, Brazil!
