T&P tries out DOTBK Limited Edition Menswear

DSC_0405

Recently I was introduced to the menswear company, DOTBK. Self-described as “an online-born, Brooklyn-based men’s clothing company that crafts unique, limited edition shirts at runs of 100 pieces or less”, we decided to try it out. It came in the mail nicely packaged in a cardboard box with really cool graphics. I got my handsome […]

Jay Chan & Justin Sem

Shauntee zeroed in on Justin’s jungle leaves jacket and that’s how we discovered these two stylish gentlemen. What we liked most about their style is that it stood out from the rest of the crowd on the street that day. Justin definitely honed his style and has a fun, edgy approach to his style. Very […]

Keenan

The trig hunters (Shauntee, Gillian and myself) headed over to the Ferry Building’s Farmers Market this past Saturday to do some style scouting and Keenan was the first stylish man that we found. He stood out from the rest of the crowd in his casual but polished outfit. He incorporated classic pieces such as the Ray-ban Wayfarers […]

T&P Goes Camping: A Men’s Style Guide for The Great Outdoors

This past weekend, I went on a family camping trip to of all places, Napa Valley. Bothe-Napa State Park to be precise. Yes, I felt the earthquake. It woke up everyone at the campsite but after confirming that yes indeed it was an earthquake, we all went right back to sleep. I didn’t even get […]

Sam

We ran into Sam in Hayes Valley. He was visiting our lovely city from Portland and the T&P team liked his city trekking outfit. You put a puff vest, a long-sleeve shirt, pants and sneakers on a man without any style and you’d get a very different outfit. Sam creates a look with those basic […]

 On a gorgeous Saturday morning, we headed to the Ferry Building Farmers Market to do some trig spotting. I told Gillian, “There’s one!” as I spotted those elbow patches peeking through the rear view of the crowd ahead of us. Then I saw the awesome herringbone wool shawl-neck cardigan that the elbow patches were attached […]

Markus Rene

We found Markus Rene, a native of Germany, looking for some cookware at Sur La Table at the Ferry Building’s Farmers Market. Once I got a look at the entire outfit, I knew I had to feature him on Trig & Polished. So we dragged him out of the store for a photo shoot. My […]

The T&P crew headed to the Ferry Building during Fleet Week to scope out some stylish men. Odds were against us as it was a Saturday, it was super hot and everyone was wearing their Saturday uniform of jeans, tennis shoes, tee shirts and caps. Not exactly the runway, if you know what I mean. […]

Chris

We found Chris during one drizzly, grey Saturday in the Mission. I noticed his casual style because of how clean and well put-together it looked. He’s got the proportions down pat. The length of the pants, the way his denim jacket fits over his hoodie…beautiful. Notice where the zipper pull of his hoodie is and […]
