I had the pleasure of featuring Boston best men’s shops in The Man Issue of The Improper Bostonian.
The looks were inspired by Classic British Gentlemen. The styles range from Smart Casual to Elegant Formal. 
My objectives were to show by assembling affordable and high-end pieces that style is not a price tag or a label, and to create the most effortlessly stylish and inspiring looks.
