Savage Style

There comes a time in every guy's life when he has to put away boyish things and become a man. And when that day comes, said boy-man should seek the sartorial know-how of one Will Boehlke, CEO of Dynamic Endeavors and the mastermind behind the fashion blog, A Suitable Wardrobe.

Primarily focused on menswear, Boehlke gives a comprehensive look at not only the building blocks to a man's wardrobe but chronicles his own affinity for bespoke suits, custom-crafted footwear and dandy accouterments such as pocket squares, leisure sport coats, ascots and trimmings that most men have forgotten - or never knew existed.

As seen on the site, Boehlke doesn't just talk the talk. Many posts are based on his own wardrobe, using himself as a canvas for the detailing he encourages men to pay attention to. Since most of his clothing is tailor made, there aren't many labels to speak of, but that may make the looks that much more accessible, provided you have a trusted tailor.

Tan slipons, cream linen trousers, a white cotton shirt, white linen pocket square, mid-blue silk bow tie and blue and white jacket.

Linen checked shirt, accompanied by a cashmere and cotton suit, knit necktie, dotted silk square, and chestnut Edward Green Buckinghams with a suede apron.

Suede cap from Lock & Co., rose cashmere crew neck, gray flannel trousers, and a gray end on end shirt with saddle shoes.

Light gray Brisa trousers and a jacket from Holland & Sherry's 14 ounce linen are worn with a linen cap and shirt, Edward Green spectator slip-ons and necktie from San Francisco's Cable Car Clothiers.

Double-breasted of H Lessers 12 ounce - 360 gram midnight blue barathea jacket, highly polished opera pumps of black calf, maroon silk hose, a silk pocket hank, pleated shirt with turndown collar and a Charvet bow tie.

If nothing else, you should check out the site for not only Boehlke's wardrobe but affinity for shoes. 50 pairs and counting...
