Class act; Mr. Ostrom

Meet Christian Ostrom. He is a buddy of mine from California. Before I met him I had heard rumors of his closet…then we become roommates…then the rumors became a reality. This boy knows how to shop. But more importantly, he wears what he purchases-WELL!. I know plenty of people that may have good taste, may even purchase those token items, but they just sit in their closet, waiting for the ‘right’ time. What good does that do?

Christian was headed to a friends wedding and instead of opting for the safe black suit (oh-so-boring) he rocked this unexpected 3 piece ensemble. A little bit prep. A little bit of spring. And a whole-lotta class.

sunglasses: Ray Ban 4140

bow tie: Brooks Brothers

jacket: Polo Ralph Lauren

pants: Levi 511 Trousers

vest: Rocklin Sartorial

shirt: Brilliant Colours by Velour

shoes: Cole Haan

socks: Polo Ralph Lauren

belt: Polo Ralph Lauren

I hope that you follow Mr. Ostrom’s advice and dress like a champ for no good reason expect that you owe it to yourself!

As you will catch me saying over and over, you only have one life, you best live it dressed well.

The Blue Line

Denim started out as the working man’s uniform and quickly has become the all American fashion staple. Dress it up, dress it down, denim has transcended all forms of clothing and invaded our closets with its infectious shades of indigo.

I love wearing denim on denim on denim on denim. Who ever says that you can’t is a big fat liar. Mixing and matching different shades, textures and weights of denim help break up a Texas Tuxedo.

Styling note: Stand next to complimentary colors. Don’t have a sweet graffiti train car? Hang out at an Orange Julius.

Lauren freshens up her denim assault with a colorful scarf and Mexican beads. Her ripped jeans are paired with smart platform wedges.
