Anthony’s Picks (See my whole collection HERE)
If you know me then my picks should come as no surprise. This spring I’m really looking to incorporate bold bright colors and prints in everything from t-shirts to blazers to shoes. I chose items that had a preppy yet casual feel and also some with a hint of a nautical vibe. 
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
Engineered Garments Baker Jacket | Cole Haan Lunar Grand Wingtip | Cheap Monday Slim Chinos | SUPER Flat Top Sunglasses | Levi’s 513 Sta-Prest Pant | GANT Rugger Chambray Pocket Heavy Rugger Shirt | M151 Cobalt Blazer | GANT Rugger Flower Tee | GANT Rugger Sunglasses | Steven Alan Reverse Seam Shirt | Cole Haan Men’s Air Colton Saddle Oxford | Cardigan Marc Rugby Stripe Sweater
Dustin’s Picks (See my whole collection HERE)
I chose these items because I’m a pretty casual guy most of the time and I like clothes that are quick and easy. I also like solids but I added a few patterned items that I thought would be cool to mix and match for a fun Spring look. 
From Left to Right, Top to Bottom:
Members Only Iconic Racer Jacket | Steven Alan Mason Jar Pattern Shirt | Cole Haan Bergen Wingtip | CLUB MONACO Button-Front Print Short | Ted Baker London ‘Newnord’ Polo | AllSaints Spitalfields Izushi Short Sleeved Shirt | Club Monaco - Maddox Short | Creative Recreation Lacava Shoes | CLUB MONACO Faded Floral Short
Good luck guys AND gals!

Speaking of MANIMAL PRINT…

It was Andrew Charles from Macy’s during a winter clearance last year. We’ll work on a manimal print roundup some time soon so you guys can get your shop on!
