Notes For The Young Professional

The 2015 Educational Opportunity Program Staff at Buffalo State College 
Since the inception of this blog in 2012, my intent has always been to provide practical and realistic style advice for young professionals. When I first started my career in higher education, I believed that it was in my best interest to dress well everyday as a sign of respect for myself and to my peers and colleagues. Now as I approach four years in my career, I thought it would be helpful to share some useful hints and tips that could help young professionals advance within their careers. 

Men of Bureau: What They Wore

Mikey and Will from Bureau Made to MeasureCheck out there feature on
Over the past few months I have been spending a lot of time at Bureau. As a result, I have become good friends with all of the guys here. In fact, before coming to the shop I thought the menswear scene here in Buffalo was non-existent. However, my boys Mikey and Will always bring their A-game. Therefore, I thought it was only right to showcase their incredible style.

Upcoming speaking engagement at Brooklyn College on May 12th. See flyer for details
I am proud to announce that I have an upcoming speaking engagement at Brooklyn College on May 12th. This time around I will be discussing style, fashion, and how it can influence your career. Last year, I told myself that I would like to speak to students about the importance presenting themselves as young professionals at all times. Therefore, I am very excited for this opportunity to spread that message. If you are in the New York City area, please feel to stop in and join the discussion. I have some great information to share with everyone in attendance!

Fundamentals of Apparel Construction: The Pajama Shirt

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Here is my 2nd project for my fundamentals of apparel construction course. It took me longer to finish than I expected, but I am very proud of the end result.
A few weeks ago I cut out the pattern for this shirt seen here, and after two full in-class sessions I finally completed the second project for my fundamentals of apparel construction course. Even though I have always loved menswear and fashion in general, making this shirt and these pajama pants have given me a greater appreciation for clothing because now I know the amount of time and energy that goes into creating simple every day garments.
