STEVEN ALAN SPRING 2011 LOOKS

My favorite looks from Steven Alan’s Spring 2011 Lookbook. I’ll just go ahead and assume that Cam would pick the same looks as his favorite, too. Steven Alan’s shirting is always spot on with a tailored fit. I haven’t tried his shorts, but I’m sure it’s spot on as well.

Mid-thigh shorts, bucks and sharp button-downs. Throw in a fedora and a bow-tie? Yes, please. You’re speaking my language, Mr. Alan. Short shorts and bright colors. 

Friday Find: Jack Spade Under $150 bags

I’ve had the number dialed into my phone before, seconds away from calling to order this bag:

jack spade bag in navy/green was $225, now $97.50
jack spade bag in red/purple was $195, now $136.50

Why you need a bag like this: You’re not in college anymore. I’ve always liked tote bags and hated carrying a messenger bag/crossbody. I never liked TimBuk2 bags when it comes to the commuting supplies. I’m sure they are totally worth it, but not my style. My Filson Tote can be a little drab with the colors and I like a pop every once in awhile, plus these would look dope in spring & summer.
And if you’re not ready for some color, then grab one of these:

jack spade bag in brown/black was $195, now $136.50

3 Jack Spade tote bags for under $150 bucks a pop? Deal.

Jacob - its funny cuz I now carry this as an addition to my tried and tru timbuk2.

Bailey Phillips - How cool is that bag! Those would look dope in spring and summer. I love the colors and the simplicity of the design.

professor6pack - I bought the (not on sale/often out of stock) yellow version a few weeks ago. The rubber dip coated base matches the rubber dip coating on all of my Grandfather’s tools, which are now my tools. Awesomeness.

jordan - they are selling these bags for $99 on Gilt today if you haven’t picked one up yet

FAVORITE: rifle tie bar

Hands down, er, guns down. This is one of my most prized tie bars/men’s accessories.

rifle tie bar found $6 at timeless treasures antique mall

It’s noticed every time I wear it. So dope.

Pete - Wow, awesome rifle tie bars! Reminds me of Band of Brothers (they’ve been on cable lately) – neat! Need to add some of these to our tie bar line up:

Jeff - Baby Snakes – thank you! It’s quite the find. I’ve been lucky enough to find a pair of scissors, golf club, rifle and shovel. Try Etsy!

Beeen – Wear it man! I get feedback all the time. It’s just enough quirkiness to add to an outfit.

beeen - I have one of these, it was my grandfather’s. BUT, I’ve yet to actually wear it…

Baby Snakes - ive worked at a vintage store for three years and have yet to come across a tie bar this cool. well done, sir!
