Top: Vivienne Westwood

Pants: ICONS – “Objects of Devotion” Resurrected in Los Angeles – my top five favorite pants!

I also love this mechanic jumpsuit by the same designer.

Shoes: Dr. Martens – “Jadon” 8 Eye Boot

I’ve always loved and worn Dr. Martens but these with the platform sole are wicked!

Handbag: Phillip Lim

This top, pant, and shoes have been my ‘go to’ pieces this fall. You all probably know I’m a feign for denim shirts, jackets, and jumpers so when I tried this on at the Vivienne Westwood store on Melrose Ave. I had to have it – lol! The tailoring on this denim shirt is super feminine and the I like that they chose to do it in dark blue denim. This shirt can also be worn open as a jacket which made me love it eeeeven more because versatility is key! The pant worn in this post is a deconstructed, remixed, tailored vintage military pant that I purchased from Barney’s but you could easily make these yourself. Get a pair of military pants from the army surplus or second hand store and tailor these yourself or take them to your neighborhood tailor. The great thing about these pants is that they are baggy in the leg with a fitted high-waist, so you get both sexy feminine and tomboy all in one pant. I wear this pant paired with tees, tanks, and denim shirts in the fall with boots (as shown in this post) and in the summer with sandals (see below).

Suit: Banana Republic

For Aakomon’s small waist and broad shoulders this double breasted, peak lapel navy blue linen suit is PERFECTION!

Frames: Oliver Peoples

Dress Shirt: Trashness

Shoe: Aldo “Velinia” men’s dress shoe

This rich mahogany brown leather slipper dress shoe is divine when paired with this navy suit.  This style shoe is so versatile he had to have it in black too! So, shop away fellas because this beautiful shoe wont break the bank. It’s great with a suit (as shown here), a shirt & slacks, and/or worn casually with jeans.

Neck tie: Bloomingdales

I love menswear… Especially when a man wears it as well as this! All of the small details really pull this look together and make it stylish, modern, cool, and oh so sexy. Paying attention to choose the perfect tones of navy blue for each element of this look makes all the difference and is important when pulling off a monochromatic look. Most importantly the fit of this suit makes it look more expensive than it’s actual cost. Proper tailoring in men’s suiting, and menswear in general, is the difference between looking like a GQ magazine cover and an ad for K&G Men’s Clothing Store (nothing against K&G… but you know what I mean).
