Come at me bro!

Now a message from the Brothority.

I’m bombarded with this all day long now that winter has arrived to San Diego.  Guys in hoodies emblazoned with  Volcom or RVCA. When I see guys like this I think of them playing World of Warcraft, drinking Mountain Dew, and breathing out of their mouth.

The last time they saw a female naked was when they were born.

Now let’s contrast it with this look. It’s still more or less the same but so much better. It still retains that casual look but says you’re a man not to be fucked with . The guys above look like they snuck off from their parents to smoke some brown mexi swag.

The Rake

This is how it’s done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s pay attention to what is done right here.

  1. The shoulders of the jacket are just right
  2. Waist of the jacket doesn’t resemble a lifeless sack
  3.  Showing enough shirt cuff. Ideally you want to see about .5″ of shirt cuff
  4. Slim… not hipster nutter tight pants
  5. Tie width matches the lapel width of the jacket

Everything about this picture conveys bad ass on the level of Chuck Norris.

Now compare to this brostake. This is how most guys wear a suit.

I see a lot of guys making the mistake to button your bottom button on a jacket. This button was designed to never be buttoned… unless you’re JFK.

Why you never button the bottom button from AskAndy

Why do men never button the bottom button of your suit, sports jacket, vest or Cardigan sweater?

King Edward VII, “Bertie”, son of Victoria (1841 – 1910, King 1901 – 1910) was so heavy that he could not get the bottom button fastened on his vest or to be more historically kind, maybe he just forgot. His subjects taking it as a fashion statement followed his lead and today most men’s suits, sports jackets or vests are not designed to button the bottom button.

The tradition of not buttoning the bottom button may have also come from the early waistcoats, which were very long. It may have been out of necessity of being able to walk that the bottom buttons were left undone.

Now you know to never make this brostake again.
