For a long time my style has been bi-polar between broish items like v-neck t-shirts, flip flops, non-selvage jeans, baseball hats and hoodies juxtaposed against trad classics like Brooks Brothers suits, sportcoats and repp ties, Clark's desert boots, khaki's, Allen Edmonds shoes, and madras plaid. This has caused me to question what style I like and to be torn about what style I present to onlookers. However, tonight a revelation came to me and I realized that it is summed up in my name... I am Bro + Trad.... I am Brad.... it's my name and it's who I am! So if you see me in a pair of flip flops, 7 for All Mankind jeans, an OCBD, and a Brooks Brothers sack blazer, don't panic, it's all part of my style. I don't know if it will be StyleForum approved, but we'll see how it goes. I feel so much better now - just had to share.
