E71: Apparel Arts and Dressing Like the Esquire Man Style and Direction

    • Education

We're back from the break! In this episode Spencer & Ethan go to their roots and talk about the beautiful menswear illustrations found in Apparel Arts. These slightly cartoon-ish figures contrasted with incredibly detailed clothing were quite formative in developing not only our taste but for learning just how creative vintage tailored style could be. We also discuss the concept of "The Esquire Man", which was pretty much the #menswear dude of the 1930s.
