Big Things Coming!

Hey guys!  Josh here.  So excited to make the announcement that my good friend Timothy Sumida has decided to come on with The Metallic Dapper as my designated photographer.  Since moving to Orange County, so much has changed for me and my blog needed a fresh update!  Having a designated photographer is going to be an amazing upgrade for me and I couldn’t be more excited!  So stay tuned for some amazing photos and outfit breakdowns for late winter/early spring within the next few weeks and have an amazing day!  Oh… and here’s a little preview of my favorite wallet!




The best NYE shoes you’ll find.

Let’s be honest, you need a killer shoe for all of your New Years Eve shenanigans so I decided to put together a little list of some of my favz. Break out that velvet jacket you’re “supposed” to save for occasions like tonight and rock it with a killer graphic t-shirt and you’re ready to go! Happy 2015 ya’ll!

It’s all in the details… Neckwear.

I love tied scarves used as a necktie.  I think it mostly has to do with channeling my inner Mr. Bingley.  Menswear was at like a historical all time high during Jane Austen’s time.  So fortunately for me, Berluti threw in a couple of tucked scarves into their FW 2014 lineup.  And let me just say…it screams class.  Or should I say whispers it.  The trend works so well because it inevitably evokes super high society British influence but still somehow tones down a suit to a really urban and approachable vibe.  Try it.  I dare you.

Rock Appeal.

Everybody needs a little bit of rock and roll in their summer line up.  While a leather jacket is the easiest and most accessible option, this editorial from Essential Homme will hopefully get your creative juices pumping.  Think changing up textures and adding some great accessories to polish up your look.
