Continuing my special menswear week with a more “hipster” / “prohibition” and “steampunk” inspired look. I found this great Klaxon Howl prospector vest in Toronto back in the fall. The shop on Queen West is the bomb! They always have the coolest new and vintage pieces for men. I love the black detailing around the edges. I paired the vest with some mocha colored slacks, a pinstriped tee and brown suede brogues. I decided to add suspenders to the outfit, just as an extra accessory. I haven’t always been a fan of suspenders… I think they reminded me too much of Steve Urkel when I was younger but I feel like they can definitely be sexy if worn right (I kind of like the nerdy chic look. Funny how taste changes ay?!). I got Offner to just leave his hanging at the back, which gives his look more of a laid back feel.
