Venice Vibes

Monday morning stroll on the boardwalk after breakfast and coffee in Venice.
Here's what i'm wearing...
I've been favoring black denim lately.  They're so easy to pair, and can be easily transitioned
from day to night.  Here are a few of my current faves:

Shawl collared cardigans for the win! I've been pretty obsessed with this style since the 
GANT preview last September.  Here are some current faves:

The Tie Bar Blogger Box: Blake Scott

Since gifting season is around the corner, I wanted to aid
in the overwhelming hardship of choosing the perfect gift set for your #1 fella.
I am SO excited to finally share with you my collaboration with The Tie Bar for this Holiday season!

I have curated a  Blogger Box  gift set which includes 4 pieces that I have personally
chosen and styled for you today.  
It was important to me to select pieces that were as versatile as they
were stylish, and completely reflective of my personal style.
 Check out the 4 pieces I chose, and how you can get your hands on them!
Classic pieces with a modern twist for the versatile and savvy Gent!

The Blake Scott Blogger Box includes: Tie, Tie Bar, Pocket Square, and socks for only $49.
I chose pieces that you could mix with denim and a blazer, or a full on suited look.
If you've been following me for awhile, you know i'm all for looking
like a million bucks without having to actually spend the million.
This collaboration with The Tie Bar was the perfect opportunity to offer you 
a well curated gift box that truly is a bang for your buck.

I hope you guys enjoy styling the box as much as I did creating it!
Make sure to tag me: @blakescott_ #BlakeScott in your photos 
so I can see how you styled my pieces!  
I'll be sharing some of my favorite looks on my blog AND IG!

Cheers Gents,
Blake Scott

Navy Staples

Keeping it simple in navy staples today.
Here's what i'm wearing...
Apologies for the vibrant blue color, this blazer is actually a true navy.  I've had so much trouble with the Blogger platform when uploading my photos. 
 It somehow always over saturates my colors, and --ugh- never mind that, 
next week is a new story.  We'll be launching our NEW SITE!!!
We're so excited, and hope you are too!
So many cool things in store, gents :)

Lights Out

Black is back, and it's here to stay!
Lately, i've been gravitating towards darker pieces:
shoes, tees, watches, bracelets
for my everyday look.  Some feel black directly translates to edgy, but I don't feel that way.
You can definitely make darker shades dapper by keeping the look simple.
There is a certain old school class that black delivers unlike any other color.
Some of my IG posts don't make it to the blog, so I thought i'd share some of my current
faves- all shopable details included.
Here are some of my recent Instagram posts embracing:
A darker side of dapper!

Caravelle watch, Untuckit shirt, Hudson jeans, Gordon Rush cap toe derby


John Elliott & Co x Gap jacket (sold out, similar below), New Balance sneakers

AN dinner jacket, shirt, and bow tie; Mont Blanc watch
En Noir jacket, Hudson jeans, Kenneth Cole slip ons


Don't forget to follow along on IG for all my latest updates, and current OOTD's!

Cheers,

Corduroy Suiting

Was finally able to wear this corduroy baby while in New York 2 weeks ago.
Prior to this week, LA had seen consecutive weeks of 90+ degrees-
there was no way I could've braved the heat to shoot this.
Being born and raised in Los Angeles, I was never able to experience
real seasons- I finally get it!  The importance of layering has been 
unearthed, and is no longer a thing to do when the temp hits below 60 - err, I mean, 30?
Here's what i'm wearing, and how you can get your hands on it!



After an early breakfast with Ash in the Upper West Side, we headed over to 
Mack Weldon studios to check out their offices, and get a behind the scenes look
at all their goodies. 
 Everywhere in NYC is so picturesque.  It was hard walking
a few blocks without reaching into our packs for the camera.  No matter
how many times we frequent the city, the experiences are always new, and there
are always unfamiliar corners to discover.
Of all the sock color ways and varieties, solids are my current fave.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the polka dots and stripes, but solids have been rocking
my feet for the past few weeks.  It's a nice refreshing look, and feels a little more
mature or grown-up in some way.  The socks pictured above are from Mack Weldon.

Suit: Brooklyn Tailors x GAP (similar hereherehere)
Sweater: Moods of Norway, c/o
Shirt: Twillory, c/o
Socks: Mack Weldon, c/o
Shoes: H by Hudson, c/o
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

We passed through Times Square after MW, in route for a suit fitting.
This cord suit by Brooklyn Tailors x GAP collab got me through 
a full day of meals and meetings.  I paired the brown suit with a Moods of Norway 
cable knit sweater, light accessories, and blue Twillory shirt .

Wearing corduroy is somewhat nostalgic of my youth, but with a cool 
modern take.  It's not something my mom forces me to wear on a special occasion, 
but something tailored and perfected by modern designers: Brooklyn Tailors.

Make sure to hashtag #blakescott if you get a chance to wear your  
favorite cord combo- i'd love to check it out!

Cheers,
Blake Scott
