Danté Wright


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

Hyo Jun-Ahn


I found Hyo at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Market in Downtown San Francisco. He was waiting in line for his drink and I asked him if I could take a picture of him for T&P. There was definitely a language barrier issue and at first I didn’t think he knew what I … Continue reading

David


Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the Red, White and Blue. This is David. He knows how to put together an outfit. Look at those gorgeous leather boots! Everything on this man looks clean. The dark denim. The navy blue blazer paired with the red, white and blue patterned dress shirt. The brown leather belt. Very … Continue reading

Steven St. Claire


Steven St. Claire – Accordionist & Balladeer We discovered Steven St. Claire (what an adorable name!) playing his accordion near the Powell cable car turnaround. There he was looking like someone back in time, all dressed up, accordion in his arms, playing his heart out. Such a trig and polished picture. The whole setup. A … Continue reading

Dylan


Dylan, I love your modern-day Fred Astaire look. When I first saw you, I thought “Ballroom Attire”. You nail it with a slim black suit, white dress shirt, black bowtie and black leather wingtips. Like those classy looking men that you see in tuxedos and slicked back hair in old glam photos. So Debonaire! Your … Continue reading

Antonio Velez


I love how Antonio pairs a cobalt blue tie with a muted olive-brown suit. The contrast is striking and the suit pops, as opposed to choosing a neutral tie. It’s unexpected, and it completely works. The really cool thing about Antonio’s look is the texture of his tie. I’m not sure if the photograph does … Continue reading

James


This here is James. James works for Ted Baker (a British designer label, for those of you who might not know), so it’s already a requirement that he know a little something about fashion, no? He told me that the inspiration behind his getup were the child labor workers of the 1920’s. I totally see … Continue reading

Gabriel Angelo


Finding Gabriel Angelo during my latest T&P scouting, was like finding a gold nugget while panning for gold. Just look at him! I found this young T&P man outside of the Westfield Shopping Center on Market in downtown San Francisco. There he was playing his trumpet, in a blue gingham button-up, swiss dot bowtie, suspenders, … Continue reading

Austin


These pictures pretty much prove that Austin is the ultimate Trig & Polished spokesman. First off, that black trim blazer is awesome. I love that he picked out a basic menswear piece, but found one with unique styling. Also, he’s rockin’ the bowtie. I really love that bowties are back in rotation. And I love … Continue reading

Sergio


Now that the Bay area is starting to feel the heat (it feels like this was the first hot day in a long time), I’m finding it a bit more challenging to find trig and polished gentleman. I guess I can’t blame them. Let’s face it, the more layers a man wears, the more he … Continue reading
