I found this fairly dated 4x1 blazer at a thrift shop.  At $6, I saw its potential so I decided to purchase it.  I also ended up harvesting some horn buttons off a Polo Ralph Lauren Jacket for $5 at a different store.  My plan was the re-position the jacket to a 4x2 stance.  This would require a new button hole to be cut and the lapels to be repressed.

I then went to visit my tailor at Franco’s Tailoring in Lawrenceville NJ.  I’ve been going to Franco ever since I bought my first suit over 2 years ago and have developed a very strong relationship with him since.  Last we saw each other, I told him that I could shine his shoes so when I came into his shop, he had three pairs of italian made Santoni’s waiting for me.

When he saw the project I had in mind, he refused to charge me for the work.  He was so grateful that I offered to shine his shoes, we worked out a barter arrangement.  He swapped his services for mine.  After a week, I came by, dropped off the freshly shined shoes, and picked up my latest thrifted blazer.  Expect this bad boy to be worn all season long !

Adrian, 21, also displays his current shoe rotation.  Can you believe that this time last year, he didn’t even have 10 pairs in his cycle?!

Adrian, 21 years old, is taking a walk around the city on a Saturday morning.  The shades, rolled up sleeves, and hat just scream summer time.

Adrian, 21 years old, shows that a college student can look dandy without spending a ton of money.  He showcases a nicely fitting overcoat that was thrifted.

Rob, 20, showing that light wash denim is back in demand.  This is a great Spring/summer look.

Serg, 26.  Looking very smart in an awesome shawl cardigan.  Also note the no break trousers that he hemmed himself.
