THE DANDY PROJECT
Being dandy isn’t as ancient or stuffy as you might think it to be. In creator Izzy Tuason’s project, which is his blog, you’ll find lots of talk about menswear with a focus on do-it-yourself projects, up-and-coming designers, combined with Filipino bespoke tailoring, a dash of film, music, and pop culture, and a healthy dose of the thought processes behind that go behind clothing and dressing up. Izzy Tuason is a freelance publicist and graduate of the Master of Science program in advertising at Boston University. He is also a freelance fashion writer and stylist for various print and online publications. Tuason has previously worked in media, advertising, and fashion branding. Off-duty as a marketing professional and blogger, he practices Ashtanga yoga, cooks and enjoys good food, writes poetry, and constantly tweets.
Look 1: “THE RODEO DANDY”
Meltin Pot denim MS006 shirt and Misfits jeans, Number Nine shoes, vintage cuff, native American watch band on Casio watch I wanted to lend an air of dandiness to the rugged double-denim look by slicking my hair back clean, stuffing a pocket square into the shirt pocket, and accessorizing with bold native American jewelry.
Look 2: “THE SEASIDE SWEATER”
Meltin Pot navy sweater , vintage DIY cutoff shorts, aviator sunglasses, Cartier watch and Airedale bracelet, vintage Gucci shoes. This chunky navy Meltin’ Pot sweater reminded me of country clubs and yachts and the seaside. I paired it with my own vintage white cutoff shorts, classic Gucci loafers and a watch from my father.
Look 3: “THE URBAN HUNTSMAN”
Aviator sunglasses, vintage cashmere scarf, Thom Browne cardigan, Meltin Pot olive green MP0011 pants, vintage Florsheim shoes. I loved the fabric and fit on these Meltin’ Pot MP0011 olive green pants, and the color reminded me of an urban huntsman. On a stroll around New York City’s Central Park, I wore it with a plaid cardigan and a thick Scottish cashmere scarf. For more information, click here.
