Decked Out: Don Draper

Don Draper might be a fictional character, but he’s been influencing men’s style decisions for the better part of a decade. We can’t always live like he does with his three martini lunches, old-fashioned dinners and constant smoking, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look the part. Besides the suit and crisp pocket square, all you need are a few good accessories and a stiff drink. Put all the pieces together and you end up with a setup that looks something like this. 1. Mad Men Old fashion - LINK 2. Randolph Engineering Aviators - $179 3. Cole Haan Black 'Clayton' Plain Toe Derby - $126+ 4. The Tie Bar Navy Wool Skinny Tie - $15 5. Vintage Cufflinks - $16+ 6. J. Crew Ludlow Suit - $650 7. Classic Lucky Strike Cigarettes - Wiki 8. Jaeger-LeCoultre Grand Reverso ... continue reading

Decked Out: David Bowie

David Bowie is, well, David fucking Bowie. The man has been a major figure for almost twice as long as most of us here have even been alive. And while we’re not going to get into the whole cycle of music influencing fashion influencing music thing, it’s definitely worth mentioning that Bowie is just as important to style as he is music. The Ziggy Stardust days are over, but there are plenty of other style cues you can take from ... ... continue reading

Decked Out: Workout Gear

Thanksgiving has come and gone. Another Black Friday is in the books. You’re back home by now and dreading going back to the office if you haven’t already. Now that the tryptophan coma is finally starting to wear off though, it’s time to think about how you’re going to fit into the same clothes in less than a month for the next round of holidays. Unfortunately, that means exercise. With this collection of gear, you’re all set for pick up ... ... continue reading

Decked Out: James Bond

When it comes to Bond, James Bond, we like to think of ourselves as purists. Even though Connery's Bond will always have a place in our heart--somewhere near the first high school love--we're kind of really into this new Daniel Craig Bond. In honor of Skyfall's release we put together a Decked Out that will get you ... continue reading

Decked Out: Camping in Style

Going off grid for a weekend and venturing into the wilderness means living a little more sustainably–it does not mean you get a free pass on looking like a civilized human being. Start with a quality pair of jeans and a trucker jacket from Levi’s, add a few creature comforts (buy more than one pair of socks!) and you’ve got everything you need, but the beer, for a weekend away from the bright city lights. ... continue reading

Decked Out: Ron Swanson

There’s no way that we (or any man other than Swanson himself) could fully address the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness with any amount of Decked Out posts. Hell, it wouldn’t even be possible to emulate half of the things if we shaved our heads, unfriended all the people we went to high school with on Facebook and switched to a completely protein based diet. But seeing as how Parks and Recreation comes back for a fifth season this week, we’re ... ... continue reading

Decked Out: Boardwalk Empire

Ah, Atlantic City. Vegas’ less attractive kid sister. Now home to some solid spots to blow your savings like the Borgata and Revel, the Jersey city has a past awesomely devoid of Snooki. For a quality history lesson, just tune into the return of Boardwalk Empire this weekend. If you’ve got the urge to steal a bit of Jimmy’s look, we’ve got your hook up. ... continue reading

Decked Out: Bike the Drive

We want to ride our bikes to work every day, but that just doesn’t happen during the summer because of the heat. Leisurely jaunts to the beach or the bar are fine because refreshment is on the horizon immediately after the ride. Work, on the other hand, is just 8-10 hours of uncomfortably sweaty man bits. Now that it’s a little more bearable outside, try switching gears to something a little more eco-friendly and bike the drive. It doesn’t matter ... ... continue reading

Decked Out: Mile High

The most stressful part of any trip is when the realization that you have to go back to work Monday sets in. Next to that, it's packing. Packing sucks. You're on an airplane, maybe a mile above the ground you work on, and you should be focusing on things like: finally getting into that exclusive club, working on a ... continue reading

Decked Out: Bruce Wayne

The reviews are in and, spoiler alert, most people (94-96% actually, including critics) think The Dark Knight is awesome. Christian Bale's gravelly voice might fit perfectly when paired with a nipple-less suit of armor, but Batman's alter-ego Bruce Wayne is also an important character in the grand scheme of things. ... continue reading

Decked Out: Walter White

Unless you've been on some sort of meth binge, you're probably well aware that Breaking Bad is back this weekend. Needless to say, we're pumped. If you’re a fan that happens to want to add a bit of Walter White’s suburban-teacher-turned-meth-artist style to your wardrobe, here are some pieces to consider: 1. Elbow ... continue reading

Decked Out: Day at the Beach

It's hot outside. Like, really hot outside. Hotter than a Terry Richardson shoot at the beach. Ok, maybe it's about that hot. You have two options: sit in the a/c all day and get hit in the face with a brick wall of humidity when you run out of beer, or cool off the old fashioned way with water. You're going to be ... continue reading

Decked Out: 4th of July

Fourth of July is on a Wednesday this year. We're not going to try to convince you that that doesn't suck (it does), but there's a diamond in the rough. Some of your friends will party the weekend before and some of them will party the weekend after. That means you get two weekends and a school night to barbecue, go ... continue reading

Decked Out: Father’s Day

Mother's Day came and went, but it's time to get Decked Out again for the other half of the group that had sex to bring you into this world (don't think about it). Father's Day is all about sitting back, relaxing and making sure your dad doesn't have to do anything but have a cold beer within arm's reach. This is ... continue reading

Decked Out: Road Trip

It’s finally nice enough outside to warrant using some of those “sick” days you racked up at work on something other than playing hooky. Schedule some time off, send out a mass text, jump in a car (rented or borrowed) and hit the road. To where? Who knows. That’s up to you. Personally, we just need to get away ... continue reading
