Do all denim.
We’re suckers for some denim on denim action.  We threw together some of our current favorites above and added links to shop below. We didn’t forget our current obsession, Birkenstocks & beanies.

We’ve always been a fan of breaking up a suit. Suit jacket with denim, denim jacket with suit pants.  We were feeling this pink club collar shirt paired back to a great pair of slim denim & tassel loafers.

Mid vortex, it’s almost impossible to think Spring…but for us, it’s a bright light at the end of the tunnel. With sales in full swing & new product hitting racks everyday, we think it’s perfect time to think forward. Topcoats are not going anywhere for 2014 and the ultimate Spring overcoat coat is the Mac (short for Macintosh). Easily worn over a blazer, and great with an easy grey tee…the Mac is a must have. Our top picks:

In honor of our Denim dressing post coming soon, we took to the brownstones of West 47th street sporting all shades of our favorite fabric. Layered with a classic Americana campfire sweater and cashmere fedora, we love this look for city or country.

National Velvet.
We’re big fans of throwback luxe styles on a red carpet. Shawl collars, smoking slippers, slicked back hair. Last night at the 2014 Grammys we saw lots of luxe via the tux. 3 stand out gents (Robin Thicke, Macklemore, LL Cool J) opted for a velvet tux and we give them 2 thumbs up. 

Voting YES for velvet? Look no further than Suit Supply. Slim fits (and prices), sick styling, sleek colors. #GetIt

Obsessed: ‘Chief Trunk’ 
During the golden age of travel, the reigning king of Americana luggage was Oshkosh. Think Titanic sized trunks, hat boxes, cases, etc. Sporting the famous gold and maroon chief stripe, this brand has been brought back to life under a new name, Chief Trunk.  

The gorgeous new collection of gear is derived directly from the archives. The dust has been blown off the brand, and the outcome…new travel obsession. Mark our words, this brand is going to be big in 2014. Get a hold of the chief, ASAP. (www. ChiefTrunk.com)

Now:
It’s in the bag.
Working and playing in New York City, we never know what we’ll be doing from one minute to the next. We keep a good bag of tricks for whatever comes our way. 

Big work meeting at 9am? Check. Drinks with friends after work at 7? Check. What?! A bike is available in Conor’s Soul Cycle class at 8 tonight?! Check.  

Flight Mode.
We caught an early flight out of Manhattan to Pittsburgh for work and had no choice but to be #Snowpocalypse ready. (#EastCoastProblems) Keeping things neutral, we were feeling this flight ready bomber paired back to slim cargos and layered classics. 

As some of these threads are no longer available, similar picks below to shop.
