Legal attire: the confidence of the suit

Tracy Xavier

While researching fashion in the professional world of attorneys, I ran across this article that really expressed our views on the subject. Inside the wardrobe of legal drama Suits

Suits1.jpg

Jolie sources much of the cast’s wardrobe from vintage and department stores in Toronto, where Suits is filmed, and makes trips to New York and Los Angeles, visiting consignment stores for one-off pieces and details like ties, cufflinks, collars or shoes that make the characters feel invested, she says. “It’s harder and harder to find really great pieces but I scour those stores all the time to see what’s different, to see what I’ve missed.”

 

Lawyer fashion evolves to reflect personality and tradition

For the women on Suits, Andreatta says she uses a lot of consignments. “The clothes are recycled, which is wonderful, and they’re insanely good quality. I find Dior, Chanel—and I use a lot of it—but it’s consignment.”

Andreatta suggests scouring vintage stores and online sites to add personality and to find designer pieces at a fraction of the cost. “Never be afraid of tailoring: Don’t be afraid to take it in and cut it up. If a jacket is too long, don’t be afraid to cut 5 inches out of it. Or you could cut a lapel down” to update a look and fit, she says.

Andreatta began her career styling attorneys more than 20 years ago, when she and a friend would take racks of clothes into law firms and talent agencies. She says times have changed—the palette has expanded, allowing lawyers more license to inject fun elements into their wardrobes.

“Women lawyers I meet want to wear the items from Suits,” Andreatta says. “You want to look beautiful but not provocative. Even seven years ago, women were dressing to fit in, to challenge men—and that was their way to compete with their colleagues. Now, it’s stronger and more to their benefit to just be women.”

Female attorneys aren’t the only ones who can find areas of self-expression through fashion. On Suits, Andreatta allows the personality of the male characters to shine through in a variety of ways. She adds romanticism with a decorative pocket square; others are dressed in vintage ties or bespoke, Savile Row-style suits.

How buying vintage and gently used can save you big bucks and up your style game

Tracy Xavier

If you are the type of person that has honed in on your personal style, you should seriously consider stocking your accessories wardrobe with vintage or gently used items. When you shop on line at the big box stores, you are limiting your style options. Their focus is on the new trends only. If you have a good sense of what style you like and look good in, there is no better option for you than vintage as well as gently used. Not only does it lend itself to helping you achieve your personal style but you can save money while doing your part to recycle.

Below are a few examples from our collections from our Men's Etsy store: Modern Renaissance Man and Mr & Mrs Renaissance store.

Fashion Inspiration: Mad Men & Downton Abbey

Tracy Xavier

So there is Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and movies like Casino providing great inspiration for style design. I love the fact that you can just add a few little elements into your look to get the vibe that you are looking for without having to go full tilt costume. That is the fun of accessorizing your outfit. It's Friday, you feel a bit Mad Men. Just toss on a mod scarf with a vintage Mag TAK. Maybe you are heading out on a date and feeling a bit romantic, Go with Downton Abbey with some delicate roses or a cameo.

Be true to your style by recycling fashion with vintage and gently used

Tracy Xavier

 Once you've honed in on what your style is, you can do yourself and the environment a big favor by shopping vintage and gently used clothing and accessories.

Once you've honed in on what your style is, you can do yourself and the environment a big favor by shopping vintage and gently used clothing and accessories.

Vintage is a solution to the eco issues surrounding the apparel industry, while also allowing individuality through creativity. For people who are constantly marketed individuality it is truly ironic the lack of individuality in fashion. Most people who consider themselves “fashion forward” fit themselves into prescribed style. A vintage shopper, however, is able to discover her personality through the clothes she picks throughout the periods of our history without having to fit into the fashion trends today. Apparel that is accessible now is not trendsetting but rather trendy for today and “so yesterday” tomorrow. This is partially because clothing has become disposable but also because fashion has slowed in creativity and instead become a pastiche of past trends.

A true fashionista finds originality in the sea of redundancy. It is a myth that in order to be considered fashion forward, you have to fit yourself into a certain look and style. Fashion is not a dictatorship, be brave and bold with your style and find what flatters you! Every fashionista is also an artist, her body is her canvas, and she paints her emotions and wears them literally on her sleeve.  Her style exudes her direction in life, her dreams, her emotions, and makes a lifestyle statement. By adding vintage to her closet, she is introducing a whole new realm of originality, while also making a statement about her eco-lifestyle.

Sincerely Yours,

What makes shopping with us special? Unique gift presentations for starters.

Tracy Xavier

All three of our stores offer a very unique take on things. We have found a way to combine our love for accessories and our fascination with creative vintage boxes. While we are out on our accessory hunts, we run across the coolest boxes and just can't resist. These wonderful finds let us to put together a very unique shopping opportunity. When you purchase a few items from our stores, we package them all together in a matched up box to create a very special gift presentation for someone or yourself. These little trinket and stash boxes can also be purchased for single pieces as well. Little porcelain boxes for our Mag TAKs, carved wooden boxes for a set of special cufflinks or a neat vintage tin for a silk scarf and "Chick Magnet". Below we have put together some examples to get the ball rolling. Please reach out to us in any of our three stores if you would like for us to put a gift package together for you.
