vintage-tee-trend

The Vintage tee trend has become the new way of expressing your taste through badass merchandise.

Heard of Marilyn Manson? Nope. Know a member of Metallica? Nada! Doesn’t matter. Infamous graphics from bands like Metallica, Kiss, Iron Maiden, Guns n’ Roses and even Tupac are blowing up in this new vintage tee trend.

The t-shirts are reminiscent of the counter culture that was associated with that particular brand. Lets look at the different ways celebs are putting their spin on the vintage tee trend.

1. Oversized/Baggy

This works when you’re in your 20’s and/or you wake up with an IDGAFOS attitude.
This is a street style look so feel the need to layer under your baggy band shirt.
If you’d rather put a piece on top, pick a just-as-distressed denim jacket to match with super skinny rock n roll jeans.

Here is how the style Gods of the moment are rocking the baggy band t-shirt look.

2. True to Size

If you’re not in your 20’s chances are you actually did listen to Iron Maiden, Metallica, Queen, Guns N’ Roses, The Who, Tupac, this automatically entitles you to own his trend, again.

*Remember, Dad’s– Kanye is a dad too.

3. Python Show Style

For those who work hard, and play hard… who wants tickets?
Expert Tip: Roll your sleeves to give your boxy old band shirt more tailored look through the arms.

The vintage tee trend is a great way of showing off your taste in nostalgic merchandise. But buying these ain’t cheap. Some vintage tees are going for over $300 USD on eBay.

So, unless you carefully stored your t-shirts from the 80’s… JOAT dropped a collection of vintage inspired tees just for you. These ones are made with stretchy super soft fabric that  (sorry to say it) might be better than the real thing.

john-varvatos-feature

John Varvatos is a brand we look to for edgy menswear influenced by rock ‘n’ roll.
His pieces are a perfect balance of modern tailoring and that 90’s grunge/vintage style.
Think graphic tees, leather jackets, relaxed t-shirts and cool blazers.

The brand isn’t designed with an age in mind but rather a particular vibe. It’s for the guys
who are rebellious and like to push boundaries. The guy who walks with a sense of
authority but still manages to maintain a laidback attitude. If you’re that guy, you’re
a JV guy.

A couple of our favourite pieces from this season include a leather jacket that has fabric sleeves,
their Bowery denim which comes in a range of colours, and the “This Ain’t A Disco”
tee that really epitomizes the culture of the brand. Scroll down to take a look at some of
the John Varvatos pieces we got in- available in store and online.

5-ways-to-wear-a-blazer2

A great blazer is one of the most reliable and versatile pieces in any guy’s wardrobe. The classic way to wear a blazer is similar to a suit jacket — with a dress shirt and tie — but slightly less formal (the jacket isn’t a matching set with the suit pants). The differences between a blazer, sport coat, and suit jacket can be subtle, but they’re important to know.

Think you’ve got the classic blazer look covered? Great. Let’s step up your style to the next level, and explore 5 new looks to make the most of your awesome blazers that have been trapped in the confines of nine to five.

BLAZER LOOK #1

double breasted navy blazer look
Tiger of Sweden Navy Double Breasted Peak Lapel Blazer: $599, Stenstroms Slimline Basic Dress Shirt: $195, Nudie Jeans Grim Tim Organic Dry: $179, Gotstyle Double Monkstrap Wingtip Shoe: $225

A double breasted blazer with dark denim is a modern power look any guy can pull off. The double breasted blazer is bold, so pair it with a solid colour dress shirt and let the blazer do the talking. Always keep the inside button and upper outside button fastened when standing. The only time you shouldn’t do up a button is if your blazer has multiple rows of buttons on the centre. If that’s the case, the same rule as with single breasted blazers applies — leave the bottom button undone.

Make sure that when wearing jeans with dress shoes the jeans are well tapered at the bottom, like on our model above. This will add height and slim down your look. If the front cuff of your jeans covers either of the monkstraps, it’s a sign the cuffs are too wide.

It may not be what you’re used to, but trust me, tapered lower legs are the way to avoid the dreaded “dad jean flare” you may not even realize you’ve been rocking. Once you wear one pair of properly tapered jeans and see the difference, you’ll never go back.

BLAZER LOOK #2

black blazer single breasted notch lapel Strellson Black STC Travel Jacket: $598, John Varvatos Grey Eyelet Henley Shirt: $98, Nudie Jeans Grim Tim Organic Dry: $179

Throw your best dark blazer on over a designer tee, jeans, and military style boots to pull off a Justin Theroux inspired rocker look. Some tips to make sure you do it right:

  • Treat this as a casual look. A t-shirt with a blazer is cool. A t-shirt with a blazer when everyone else is wearing a suit? Not so cool.
  • Make sure your jeans are tapered right. Come on man, we already talked about this.
  • Let your boots develop some character.
  • Leave the blazer unbuttoned — with a t-shirt, better to keep it casual.
  • The t-shirt should hit just below your belt.
  • Avoid tight tees. When wearing a t-shirt with a blazer, try not to look too…slick. I like to gently tug on the collar of my shirts before wearing them under a blazer. A bit of a slouchy look is perfect. You’re not wearing this to a black tie event anyways, so it’s cool to grunge up this particular blazer look.

BLAZER LOOK #3

blue blazer athleisure joggers
Van Gils Blue Pindot Blazer: $550, John Varvatos Green Striped Hoodie: $180, Zanerobe Black Sureshot Chino: $125, Sully Wong x Gotstyle Camo Shoes: $125

Here’s where a blazer can be useful as a transitional layering piece. Pair a casual, natural shoulder blazer like this one with a hoodie, joggers, and luxe sneakers for a super comfy outfit that will turn heads. In the right way.

Make sure the hoodie is thin. Not just any hoodie will work — too thick and it won’t layer nicely with a properly tailored blazer. As much as you love your college sweater, save it for the couch and opt for a sleeker fitting piece.

Seize this opportunity to wear your coolest, boldest sneakers (as long as they match what you’re wearing above the ankles). Joggers were made popular by sneakerheads because they show off a guy’s kicks — so go all out! An eye-catching pair like these ones from Sully Wong elevate the look from good to great.

BLAZER LOOK #4

preppy blue blazer look polo swims Gotstyle Navy Wool Notch Lapel Blazer with Metal Buttons: $695, Selected Homme Charcoal Skinny Fit Stretch Chino: $95, Swims Navy Sport Loafer: $100, Taft No-Show Socks: $60 (4-pack)

This preppy spring/summer look works best with a navy blazer. Start with a polo, tucked or untucked (I prefer untucked, but either can work). Roll up your blazer sleeves a bit, even cuff your pants at the ankle if you feel like it. Slim fit chinos are a must, especially when your loafers tie in to the rest of the outfit as well as these ones do.

Pro tip: when going “sockless,” wear no-show socks. The exact same look is achieved, minus the blisters and lingering stink. You’re welcome.

BLAZER LOOK #5

preppy blue blazer look polo swims Without Prejudice Charcoal Flannel Blazer with Elbow Patches: $525, Blue Industry Purple One pocket Crew Neck Knit Sweater: $105, Horst Black Ceratex Herringbone Knit Pants: $128

This is a great transitional layering outfit for fall days when you don’t quiiite need a jacket yet, or the end of winter when you’ve ditched your parka for the season. The different textures (fuzzy flannel on the blazer, herringbone pattern pants) complement well and are way comfier than you’re used to for a look this sharp. The thin crew neck sweater under the blazer gives you some flexibility on whether to button or unbutton.

Last thing — show some cuff. Having that sweater peek out from both the chest and sleeves may not be something everyone notices, but those who do will appreciate the attention to detail.
