Feeling Great

Strolling through the Arts District with my partner in crime for a slice of pie,
and some shopping.  Just an FYI: along with the great eateries popping up, there's a lot of 
cool shopping in the area.
Some of our faves are: Alchemy Works, Apolis, and Poketo.
You can find an array of artisanal knick knacks along with the perfect market totes,
and even a Warby Parker pop-up!
Here's what i'm wearing...
My current favorite low top sneaker + bag combo is Greats "Wilson" and 
Herschel's duffel.  I like to mix up casual pieces with dressier items for a nice balance.
The sneaks and bag give the look a sportier vibe, which i'm all about.
Today's trousers are by Kenneth Cole which I had tailored slightly above the ankle.
It's important to have an array of pant styles for different occasions.
Currently, the no-sock look has been my go-to whether i'm wearing trousers, or cuffed denim.
Also wearing an Armani Exchange denim/wool trucker jacket.
You guys know me and my denim :)
This baby is quickly becoming my everyday-er since it's finally been cool enough to wear
sweaters and jackets all day.
Jacket: Armani Exchange
Sweater: Kenneth Cole
Trousers: Kenneth Cole
Shoes: Greats Brand
Bag: Herschel Supply CO.
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

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!
PHOTOGRAPHY: ASHLEY ESTRADA

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, 
Blake Scott
