Paperboy Blues

My obsession with the 1920s knows no boundaries. I loved everything about that decade. The culture, the music, and most importantly, the fashion. Suits were not just for weddings, they were the daily uniform. And they weren’t the boring suits that you see today; Broad shoulders, wide lapels, bold colors were the norm. And um, people actually made time to read the paper. Squad goals for real, you guys.

*sheds tear*

Fortunately, there has been a renaissance of the modern gentleman within the past year with the return of the double breasted suit. You probably saw Danny Tanner and Michael Jordan rock these in the 90s, which turned off an entire generation from wearing them. Fortunately, the new wave of DB suits are much more fitted and streamlined.
I picked up this suit from Suit Supply in Chicago a few months back because it reminded me of that classic 20s era. I love the wide lapels, the pinstripes, and the louder hue of blue. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good navy suit just as much as the next guy, but every once in a while – You have to step out of the norm. Plus, when you have a suit as bold as this, you don’t need to do much else. Just a crispy white button up is all you need!

Suspenders are just another throwback to that 20s era. I’ve seen suspenders worn every which way: close to the waist, farther out by your hips. I think it all depends on your preference. For this suit, I liked them closer in just so it shows a bit more through the suit. I really don’t think there’s a hard/fast rule about them.

The watch is from Daniel Wellington. That classic white face with the deep brown strap and the gold trim is just — sigh, so perfect. Easily my most worn watch and it’s super affordable, perfect for you gentlemen just starting your collection.

I got these MJ Thriller socks about 5 years ago, when I was working in London for a few months. They should be torn up by now, but thankfully, they are in perfect condition. Let’s hope they stay that way!

Oh and FYI: I took these photos on my way back home from the office, hence the wrinkles on my pants. This is not a photo shoot, this is real life people!!
