    E35: On Leather Jackets

    E35: On Leather Jackets

    We're talking about leather jackets (especially vintage ones) on this newest episode. They're such a big part of our casual Americana and definitely warranted a full discussion. Spencer and Ethan go a bit into their history, delve deep into the differences and details between certain models, and how each one has a different vibe. If you feel like trying to hunt for you own after listening, then we've done our job.

    E34: On Very Ralph (2019)

    E34: On Very Ralph (2019)

    Spencer and Ethan watch the HBO Documentary "Very Ralph", which is all about, you guessed it, Ralph Lauren. We briefly go over the different lines he has made (as well as our love of RRL) before recapping the documentary and giving our thoughts on the overall film and brand!

    Big thank you to MJ (for editing the podcast) and Matthew for transcribing our notes/quotes.

    E33: On Shoes

    E33: On Shoes

    Happy New Year from Style and Direction!

    We're starting the year off strong with an entire pod on shoes. We actually weren't into shoes until very recently, so it was worth a reflection. Ethan also goes into why he loves loafers as well as his journey from trying out multiple used pairs of Allen Edmonds to a gracious gift of Aldens from a friend that finally got him to understand that shoes are a big/worthwhile investment.

    E32: How We Buy Clothes

    E32: How We Buy Clothes

    As we get out of Black Friday but go full force into Holiday Sales, we thought it was pertinent to talk about how we buy clothes! This new pod ep goes into detail about how we research for clothing, how buying vintage and new differ, and whether keeping a list is important.

    E31: On Neckties

    E31: On Neckties

    Keeping our "rule of cool" going with this newest ep, which is all about neckties! Spencer and Ethan briefly go over the history of the tie (shoutout to King Louis XIV), what their favorite ones are, to how you can pull them off in the modern day without being too dressed up. Don't forget to follow along with the show notes!

    E30: The Rule of Cool

    E30: The Rule of Cool

    What makes something "cool"? Is it possible to apply that to classic menswear? Or is it all just old man clothes?

    Spencer and Ethan attempt to answer these questions and discuss the Rule of Cool, which simply states: that "if something is cool, people will like it; if it's not cool, people won't like it". It's a nebulous topic, but we do our best!

Way chill

Great tips and anecdotes from the world of menswear, but the real selling point is the rapport between the two hosts. Most of the fun is just listening to these two hanging out.
