At the Indy 500 with Guess

Tony Trahan Guess Indy 500

The Indy 500. One of the few places where America comes alive, and takes a step back in time for a day, an experience unlike any other. As I alluded to in my previous post with Guess, it is truly a spectacle unlike any other. The day starts early, almost 400,000 people pour in the gates around 6 or 7 o’clock in the morning because how else are you going to get everyone else in? To […]

Indy 500 x Guess

Woo woooooot I’ve been blessed enough to be here in Indianapolis for the 100th running of the Indy 500. It really is quite a treat to be here. I was last here 3 years ago and it was pretty rad as I was in the winners circle post-race with Tony Kanaan, talk about something that is unlike anything else. The Indy 500 is such a spectacle as you’ll never see any event like it. It’s […]

5 Menswear Essentials for Northpark Center

So I got the opportunity to blog For Northpark Center last week, detailing my 5 menswear essentials for every man. These are important to me. I think when building a wardrobe, you want to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY. I selected 5 products from terrific stores all within Northpark Center that I believe are interchangeable and should be staples of any man’s closet. Big thanks to Catharine Flagg at Northpark and her great team for a fun […]

Mixing Patterns.. Big and Small

mixing patterns

One thing I think a lot of men get wrong is how to match shirt and ties, or shirt and suits. A lot of men are scared off of mixing patterns. Like a previous post of mine, here, I think men have a tough time being able to get out of the garden variety solid shirt and solid tie. Many times I see a man with a checked shirt, or a striped shirt, paired with […]

Hotel Review: Napa River Inn

Hotel Review: Napa River Inn Holy Moly me. oh. my. What a cool trip to Napa Valley I had earlier this month, and I had been meaning to get to this ever since the trip. We stayed at the historic Napa River Inn in Napa Valley, and it did not disappoint. Most people don’t know this about Napa, but there’s not this great abundance of luxury or nice hotels in town or around the town. […]

Elevating your style for your partner

I think one aspect that saddens me most about our society and our respect for dressing is our failure to have respect for the event or worse—the person you’re with (thanks mom for the article idea). I am saying this with the typical couple in mind, as I feel a lot of times (almost exclusively nowadays) the woman is out-dressing the man at functions. This is so depressing to me. As the leader of the […]

Suitsupply opens in Dallas, I covered it for FD Magazine

I believe men in Dallas are somewhat stylish — but still don’t quite know how to fully express themselves in their dressing. As of last night, local gents may have found a match to the seemingly endless number of choices found inside the countless women’s boutiques here. Mustard-hued sport coats. Glen-plaid wool suits. Brown linen checked jackets. Sift through the new Suitsupply store in the West Village and these are just a few of the sartorial […]
