Spring is officially here. In Virginia, we had essentially a week of warm weather. The problem is that it while the high was around 70, the starting temp would be around 45 degrees. The last thing you want to do is go from wearing flannel and boots to madras and boat shoes overnight. By mixing some F/W pieces with S/S pieces, you can have a look that is seasonally appropriate both aesthetically and functionally.

I have been wearing glasses since the 8th grade. I was lucky that my mom had health insurance with a killer vision plan, so I was able to get new frames every two years and not really have to worry about price. Once I graduated, got a job, and a vision plan of my own I realized that prescription glasses are expensive as hell without insurance. Unfortunately, my vision plan isn't quite on the level as my parent's at this point in my career. Enter Warby Parker: the maker of the most stylish and affordable glasses out there.

One of the toughest things in a guy's wardrobe to transition from a college life style to an "I have or want a real job" life style is outerwear. Sure, that Northface made it through a lot but it looks a lot better layered over a hoody with some jeans than it looks over a shirt a tie. Even more stylish coats like anoraks can look a bit odd over a suit or blazer. Enter the trench coat. A good lightweight trench is essential to any working man. A trim fitting single breasted trench will look as good with your trousers and dress shirts as it will with jeans and a t-shirt.

Dapper Demeanor Presents... is a web series that focuses on conversations about style and creativity. The discussion is much broader than clothes, though they do play a part, and speaks to general aesthetics and lifestyle as well as the featured person's approach to what it is that they do. Michael O'Brien is a photographer and friend of mine whose style embodies the simplicity of men's style and how beautiful that simplicity can be (he also takes some damn good pictures). The interview is above and below are some shots that I took of him in his space as well as some of his work.
