What to Wear

We’re not sure we believe in the concept of “too much of a good thing”—but the harsh struggle known as too many stellar photos to fit into one online editorial is all too real.

Such was the case with our recent New Streetwear project, shot against the washed-out concrete, gleaming glass and open air of Los Angeles—dozens of stylish, sun-dappled captures (by photographer Zoey Grossman) and only so much available space. We can’t abide good work going to waste around here, so keep reading for our favorite outtakes, along with 10 style tips for spring.

We hold some truths to be self-evident. Among them: There are certain items that every man, from punk rocker to real-estate agent, requires in order to successfully and stylishly face the season at hand. “Essentials,” one might call them.

Style Profiles. As part of our twice-a-year Men’s Shop Catalog, we profiled 3 real men of style and substance. Here, self-made lensman Joshua Woods.

Joshua Woods is no stranger to readers of Men’s Shop Daily; he gave us an inside view from the European Men’s Fashion Weeks and popped up in our Street Etiquette at NYFW coverage. The 27-year-old has been getting a lot of attention for his work, and it’s obvious why. Woods possesses a unique point of view that’s evident in his photography—and, we’d say, his personal style (you don’t see nearly enough men sporting a bucket hat these days).

Style Profiles. As part of our twice-a-year Men’s Shop Catalog, we profiled 3 real men of style and substance. Here, photographer and menswear blogger Tim Melideo.

And it’s easy to understand why: Besides being abnormally comfortable (many have elastic at the waist as well as the cuffs), they cut a lean, tapered silhouette that shows off your favorite shoes, without pesky concerns about rolling or hemming your pant leg.

Keep reading to see three ways to wear them: on the weekend, at the office, and for a night out.

While the name of one of our favorite menswear mood boards (How to Talk to Girls at Parties) is admittedly tongue-in-cheek, there’s nonetheless a kernel of truth to it. Intelligence, humor, confidence, karaoke prowess—all key factors in procuring a mate. But we’d only be deceiving you if we said personal appearance doesn’t play a factor as well. (Looking sharp also induces confidence, which leads to karaoke prowess, which…well, really, it’s all related.)

Nordstrom got its start as a shoe store when our founder, John W. Nordstrom, set up shop in Seattle in 1901—and to this day, our shoe department remains the cornerstone of our family-run company’s reputation for quality and service.

Keep reading for a closer look at six small-batch brands that our shoe team felt deserve a larger spotlight. They range from American icons with 100-year histories to a future legend founded by a cobbler’s son. The common thread? All six make impeccable shoes and boots right here in the USA.

As we may have mentioned before, the exclusive clothing brands our very own, in-house design teams create are nothing short of fantastic.

We decided Wallin & Bros. could easily outfit you for a full week at work, so continue reading for five days of office-ready looks featuring our own exclusive brand.
