Fashionisto Friday: Suited Up and Dapper

Based on what I’ve heard from my dad and twin brother, I know suits can be quite expensive. Ranging from $200-$1,000, these business apparel staples can easily break the bank. That’s why I was so impressed when I saw today’s Fashionisto Friday’s find while perusing my Instagram feed. Van, a stylish and dapper Dad, recently posted […]

Where’s my performance clothing?

Actually, it’s “performance professional,” which means that not only does it feel good, but it looks good too. I hadn’t heard of the brand before, so I took a peek around their website.
