Wardrobe Update: From Sporty to Dapper!

» Posted by on Dec 1, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off on Wardrobe Update: From Sporty to Dapper!



This gent headed down from Toronto to update and refresh his work to weekend wardrobe.  Since we’ve worked together since 2011, it was pretty seamless as we’d already identified his color palette, best styles for his build, and personal style based on his personal brand (though this evolves as he does).  This time he enlisted me to pre-shop for him the day prior to his arrival.  Then, what’s not to love about having an independent Seattle style consultant strategize the shopping day, truth tell and edit the final choices, and coordinate your new wardrobe right on the spot!  How long were we together day of the fitting?  Under 5 hours, which may seem like a lot of time….but not when you love everything, have zero returns, get a digital look book, and check the list by “update wardrobe”!

  •  Had a J Hilburn shirt fitting for this fabulously textured custom shirt and selected new shirt swatches to coordinate with existing trousers. With that, I was able to create and photograph several professional shirt/trouser combinations in anticipation of the shirt arrivals -to include this look with an existing sport coat and pocket square.
  • Shopped Hugo Boss, Facconable, Nordstrom to update his sporty casual look for the weekends.  Among the plethora of options, pictured are soft long sleeve tees with novelty details to pair back to the coolest denim and non-denim options!  We also picked up gorgeous button downs to wear un-tucked or to layer with some new lightweight sweaters for winter!


RAW Denim TIP:  If you do not plan on washing your raw denim regularly, buy one size down as denim stretches.


It was so much fun, you should see all his photos!  ….A versatile collection of his best colors and mix-and-match lifestyle looks to move him effortlessly throughout his calendar!

What’s “effortless” about your wardrobe? Share pics, share stories……..

Happy Menswear Monday, XO
