When you find a “vintage” Taylor Swift shirt at a vintage store you buy it. Especially when it fits perfectly. Ya it’s only from her 2011 tour, so it’s not really vintage, but it has that feel. And, sure, I have my share of vintage metal tees, but nothing says “I’m a complete bad ass; don’t fuck with me” like a Taylor Swift shirt. Kidding aside, I love Taylor Swift. So there.

My wife and I had a well deserved and long awaited date night a couple nights ago. There is a cool cocktail bar in our area that used to actually be a speakeasy. The drinks are great and they limit the amount of people inside. I wish they enforced a dress code, though. Flip flops and v-neck tees? I mean, I know it’s San Diego, but come on! The worst is when a girl gets dressed up and her date wears jeans and flip flops. Real nice.

Shirting with Express

April 6, 2016

Spring is here and wedding season is rapidly approaching. Everyone needs a great fitting clean and crisp white dress shirt in their wardrobe. I love wearing them sockless, without a tie, and pretending I am an Italian celebrity in Capri in the 60s. The Tech Fitted 1MX Shirt from Express is a perfect shirt for the warmer months. It has quick-drying technology so you can dance the night away underneath the stars and not worry about feeling like you’re wearing a washcloth. They are also nice and slim fit so they look tailored right off the rack and have the perfect amount of stretch. I paired the shirt with Express’s new Innovator fit pants,which is their slimmest fit and is great for my chicken legs.

Me on HBO’s Girls

April 4, 2016

HAHAHA! So, last June I decided that I had some free time so I signed up to do some background acting. My first (and only) job was on HBO’s Girls. Well, the episode finally aired last night. I wasn’t sure if I would be seen or not, and while I am peppered throughout the episode, you can definitely see me in one scene. The outfit they wanted me to style and wear was “Hipster Playgoer”. I think I nailed it.
