After taking care of business and passing boards, I was ready to hop back into blogging at The DDD, and thought of no better way than to bring some friends along. For this post I tapped on the shoulder of good friend and photographer Jasper based out of Baltimore, MD. While hanging out by the harbor we ran into Seth custom suit designer for Christian Schafer Clothier. Between conversation about menswear, photography, and future plans Jasper was able to take some great shots. Enjoy.
One thing I loved about Seth’s style other than the suit detailing (contrasting buttons, suit lining, monogram to name a few) and crazy pocket square, was that although dressed up with a great fit he was comfortable enough to skateboard around the city. His ability to look at home in his suiting is something we can learn from. Wall street…but not really, dressed up…but with personality.
From a distance my outfit seems to be a “safe” semi casual early spring look with gray and navy, however as you get closer you notice a couple of different patterns. Just the other day I was helping a client put together shirt, tie, and jacket combinations for their wardrobe and encouraged them to try a few new things without going overboard. Polka dot, gingham, and stripes? Sometimes it just doesn’t make sense until you see it all together.
Note: If you like the look, but there are too many patterns going on here for you, try and replace the shirt with a solid light blue.
Note: I love to carry a light scarf around this time of year when wearing a suit. Its not only useful for when there is a chill in the air, but can add another color to create depth in your outfit.
I would like to thank Jasper for the amazing photos, keep on the lookout for more collaborations and work from him here, and on my Instagram page. Also thanks to Seth for participating you can check more of him out at his IG page @seththetailor and email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more at The DDD.
