I met Danté Wright through Dario Smith. It turns out the way they met was a case of one awesome dresser recognizing another. When I met Danté, I was so grateful to Dario. Danté was dressed to the nines. I could tell that this man loved fashion. The perfect candidate for Trig & Polished. Originally … Continue reading
Dario Smith is not one to go unnoticed. I spotted him from a block away and luckily for me, he headed in my direction. Knowing how difficult it is to find such stylish men in the East Bay, I had to approach him. I learned that there is a reason Dario knows about menswear, he … Continue reading

Mumford & Sons – Winter Winds Ok,okay. This is it. The clothes and music were just too trig to pass up. Another street T&P man is coming right up. Just got a little distracted. Enjoy!
Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man Ok, this video is even more trig&polished than the first one. It’s saturated with gorgeous menswear. All of my favorite things viewed in one little box. Vests, elbow patches (my favorite!), three piece suits, beautiful musical instruments, pretty melodies and heartfelt lyrics. I die. Btw, these lovely men … Continue reading
Mumford & Sons – The Cave Nothing better than musical men in suits. Even if you don’t like the song, you can at least glean some ideas for your summer wardrobe. Linen and cotton suits. Sunglasses. Hats. British Accents. Musical Instruments. Yes. Please.
