All Tweed Everything.
Not really. I thought it appropriate that I finish this tweed day off with a WIWT. Also I wanted to update you all on where I am right now with some of the things that I have hinted at for the past few months.
The Branding Agency- We have our first client project. A tie company. You will know it when you see it. Crafting a collaboration project specifically for the ADT followers, plus a lot of cool things that I feel will be organic. I wouldn’t push it if I wouldn’t wear it. Real talk.
Trunk Show - We have 2 of the 3 brands we need to make this work. The Gibson has agreed to let us host it. We are shooting for the end of November. Dates and brands will be supplied
The Gibson Meetups - Next Friday is the first Friday of the month, but being that half of us will be in NYC we will be moving it to the following friday. The cool thing is that we keep having more people, so we may have to move it to Thursday because the private rooms at the Gibson can only be reserved for 2 hours on Friday and the weekends. I will put the word out before hand for anyone who wants to attend.
Last but definitely not least the app. I haven’t spoken too much about it, and the only thing that I can guarantee is that this will help you find or enhance your personal style. Other than that, look for people to be using it by Fashion week. Download it.
So i wanted to take this time to do my #followfriday for my immediate team. All of these guys are well on their way to changing the game in their own individual lanes. It’s cool to have a collective like this. ImageGranted, PresentingCorey, Cirq6, CB, Wingtipsandloafers, Manshion, Wellpressedgamer, Addison Wright.
I also want to thank all my blurs who have been going hard and supporting me. All the outside supporters who keep me motivated and give their support behind the scenes from the messages to the reblogs.

I have worked more hours in the past week than ever before in my life. I am facing a deadline for the largest project I’ve ever undertaken so I’ve barely had time to breath, much less write here. Unfortunate, but oh well…
I’d like to pen a short paean to the beautiful car in the photograph above, but I have been working since nine o’clock last night and I barely have enough clarity to finish a sentence, much less a paragraph. All I can say is that the photograph was taken moments before I began working for what ended up as a twenty-five hour design marathon, a new personal record.
Casual isn’t usually my thing, but every once in a while it feels good to loosen the attitude sartorially speaking—especially when it’s hot. Excuse me while I go see if I can find where they’re keeping the rest and relaxation ‘round these parts.
Straps are a fun accessory that I love. It allows me to play with colors and dress outside of my individual comfort zone. Most of the pants that I have are fitted to not really need a belt or straps. My next mission for my tailor is to add buttons to my pants so that my other straps can get more work. Fortunately, if you live in D.C. there is no shortage of thrift shops that sell used straps and buttons. Either way, just have fun with what you put on. If it feels uncomfortable, something is wrong.
Came in the office today and this bow tie was sitting on your boys desk. My Co worker dropped it off right before a sales meeting. He was looking fresh in a vintage Structure khaki Suit. Yes I said structure.
