When accepting style direction, it's important to consider your source's background.
Things like industry experience. Knowledge of fit and tailoring. A resume that doesn't feature the words "Ed" and "Hardy."
Sporting all the right credentials: NYC designer Todd Snyder, now boasting a new online store to help you dress more ruggedly dapper.
Snyder cut his teeth (and his fair share of fabric) with Ralph Lauren and J. Crew before starting his own line – but up 'till now, his British-military-influenced prep essentials were only available piecemeal at spots like Barney’s and Bergdorf.
On the bottom, Snyder’s got both a line of Japanese selvedge denim in washes from "gunmetal" to "whiskey," as well as a full range of trousers from washed selvedge khaki chinos to brawny wool cargo breeches.
The kind of clothes that help you stand out from the background.
