Embrace a Uniform

"I like the idea of a personal uniform," says Richard Haines, the fashion illustrator who sketches stylish guys on the streets of New York for his blog What I Saw Today. "Years ago, on my first trip to Europe, I noticed people would wear the same thing everyday and just changed up little pieces. It's this mentality of having less, but owning quality." And perhaps that's a good a theory to have right now.



We asked designer Steven Alan for his personal uniform: "A classic white tee, a pair of dark Levis and a Steven Alan button-down, of course."
