The sign in this photo summarizes many things:
- The chances of dating Cameron. Sorry ladies, he’s already got a lady.
- The journey to find the dress shirt that fits perfectly off the rack.
- Seth’s chance of finding shoes in his size.
- My hopes of finding a Starbucks that will put whatever I want in a Trenta.
While Seth was playing
bridesmaid groomsman this weekend in Glen’s wedding, Cam and I took our high school senior pictures drove around the streets of East Campus on his roommate’s moped.
A lot of laughing, some Blue Steel and/or Magnum, and a little spooning for dear life on the back of a two-wheeled murdercycle.
You know what I love about mopeds? You can wear whatever you want because you already look a little out of place riding the damn thing. Riding a moped is a lot like going to Vegas; you can wear whatever you want and
everybody nobody judges you for it. Right? Probably not.
You get the point though? Probably not.
On Jeff: Confetti white button down ($70 sale in NYC) by rag & bone; indigo striped “Mickey” shorts (sale $30) by Club Monaco; tan circular sunglasses courtesy of Topman; tassel loafers (thrifted, $4) by Allen Edmonds.
Fresh-faced ladies with their fresh backpacks and fresh dreams, majors, aspirations and hopes.
One of the better-fitting pair of chinos I own is the “Davis” Chino by Club Monaco. Slim cut, medium rise, chino-style pockets. I sized down in these and am surprised at how well they hold their fit and feel. I’m definitely stocking up on them when the new fall colors come out. For me, it fits better than J.Crew’s Urban Slim Fit, and I used to swear by those.
The Midwestyle Boys reunited in Missouri again for yet another weekend wedding.
But first, let’s congratulate Seth. After ushering three weddings, Seth was promoted from Usher to
Bridesmaid Groomsman. Well done, Seth! And while Seth was slinging back brews with bros at bachelor parties and watching baseball, Cam and I took a moped for a spin. Booyah.
Yes, that’s a moped.
Yes, those are my scrawny legs.
Yes, we are spooning.
Noteworthy news we’re excited to share with you:
- Seth, Brad and Max were named among the cutest men’s style bloggers in Chicago. (Refinery 29) Why was Jeff missing? Blame the scale. Where was Ryan? Blame it on Yeezy.
- Again, Amy Creyer of Chicago Street Style teamed up with Timberland to throw some boots on some boys in the City. Click through to see the photos! (Chicago Street Style)
- Kat, of That Kind of Woman, stands her ground when Snarky McSnarkerson sends a few questioning vibes our way.
You’re right. Our clothes aren’t real. We actually spend a lot of time rehearsing and practicing our poses with DJ Khalid stroking our egos. I force Seth to rehearse every evening by walking over a flaming pile of tie clips. I also make Cameron not shave for weeks on end and tell him he’s not perfect until he looks like Phillip Crangi.I’m a slave driver, Anonymous. You found out our secret: We’re models pretending to be real people, and we run a tight ship around here where everything is forced, the deadlines are insane, and our editorial calendar is so packed that we’re thinking about quitting our (real) jobs so we can be more authentic for you. These are not the droids you’re looking for.Best,Jeff
