Just saw this on Buzzfeed. As much as I hate to admit it, I can't shake the feeling that this is always true. Which is a bummer to me, because now that I have to be super careful about getting sunburned or tanned, I really ought to wear hats way more often.
I've alluded to some interesting experiences lately on this blog and I was just encouraged by Antonio Centeno at Real Men Real Style to write it up for the benefit of my (and some of his) subscribers. First of all, if you're interested in listening to my tunes, you can hear a couple at ReverbNation… Continue reading Living authentically without cancer.
I made another neat thrift store find. This time I found three vintage shirts, still in the package, with pins and tags, unopened and unworn. I looked up the styles and brands and I'm pretty confident that they are from the late 1950s or early 1960s.

I still think it's a pity though, because hats are great. I wish it weren't so pretentious (and/or creepy) to wear… Continue reading Ike Killed the Men’s Hat
Since I already shattered anyone's conception of me as manly yesterday by a post about what hats look good (a day after the Super Bowl, which I didn't watch, nor did I particularly even care about), I'm going to post again about period fashion. I've watched a lot of historical films and I think I've… Continue reading More fashion: Regency Era
I think one of the bigger shames of the modern era is that gentlemen's hats are not fashionable anymore. Every movie from the 1920s to probably the 1950s featured men in stylish fedoras and trench coats, but nowadays those things are decidedly either pretentious or creepy (and most probably both). I think Justin Timberlake can… Continue reading I Need A Hat
