Lovin’ this guy’s updated take on the dandy trend. He took some straight forward basics – shirt, tie, blazer, and trousers – and jazzed them up with unique accessories. I particularly enjoy his vintage items, like the briefcase and what I’ll call the lady brooch. They gave the look a quirky, worn-in feel.

The New Yorker in me is a sucker for monochrome looks. Though they sometimes veer into boresville, an interesting silhouette and/or textures can make them look super high fashion-y.
Sein wears the monochrome look well with a pale grey scoop neck t-shirt and loose, black Y-3 pants. I love the ribbon detail on the collar of the shirt as well as the slight drop crotch on the trousers.

This guy’s shirt caught my eye in Insadong this afternoon. It’s decked out in gold, Old World imagery – carriages, ropes, tassels – and cut like a folded-over rectangle with holes poked out for the head and limbs.
There’s something revolutionary about a man a wearing gaudy silk print shirt, especially paired with drop crotch pants and silver Birkenstocks. It’s a feminine look that brings to mind luxurious Italian housewives and church lady scarves, but the the right kind of man can make it seem completely natural.
