We work with some pretty sharp dressers, and it’s always a treat to see what they will wear each day. We’re highlighting a few of the stories behind their looks.

Beanie, Quality Mending: “This is a replica of a U.S. Navy sailors’ watch cap from World War II. I’m into vintage military stuff, and I’ve always wanted an original World War II watch cap, but they go for way too much on eBay.
Denim button-down, RRLL: “It has a sailor collar, and the buttons have an anchor on them. The shirt was modeled after a denim jacket that Navy men used to wear. What’s most intriguing to me about the pieces back then is they were not made for fashion, they were made to serve a purpose. The pieces have a lot of history, and I really shop for items that are timeless: ‘am I going to wear this two years from now, or is going to look stupid?’”
Vintage varsity jacket, King O’Shea: “I did a lot of research before I bought this: it’s from early 1950s from a company out of Chicago, King O’Shea. I have no idea what the jacket is for or what the initial stands for, but it’s my favorite, and it will probably be with me forever. I was eyeing the jacket for a year and a half from Quality Mending, and I bought it on sale for 50% off.”
