How’d your passion for menswear start?

My passion for menswear started a few years back, but I feel that my passion for dressing well and looking well put-together started at a very young age.

What are your goals as an influencer?

As an influencer my goal is to help others see ways of dressing well, and looking like a million bucks without spending a fortune, which shows very much in my style. I don’t always go for the high end brands but more for the high quality at low price items. My closet is built up mostly out of sales deals and clearance rack offers.

Explain this outfit:

With the summer season well on its way to an end, you might be asking yourself what to do with all your summer clothes. Do you stash them away or take them down to your local Goodwill store? I, for one, like to transition some of my clothes over into fall. Depending on where in the states you live, the weather doesn’t change drastically until maybe mid-October, so you still have a few more good weeks to put those clothes to use. Transitional weather means time for layering, and incorporating lightweight jackets and blazers into the mix. For this look I paired up’s Brown Checkered Skinny Tie, Thatcher Pocket Square, Brown Piped Flower Lapel Pin, & Maroon Tustin Socks with a linen blazer and khakis. Combining fall colors with a light breathable linen blazer allows you to create a look that can transition well throughout the different temperatures of the day.
