We Get To Know The Stylish Man Behind @Bchanism 

 

Brian Chan might be a newcomer to Philly by way of San Francisco, but, his sartorial style has been long envied by his large Instagram following for quite some time. Amassing over 65k followers via @bchanism, Chan has become a go to for style inspiration for any aspiring gent.

To welcome Brian to Philly, we gave him a pair of our Westminster snuff suede tassel loafers to see how he would style them into his wardrobe 3 ways.

C&H: What excites you about moving to Philly?

@Bchanism: “For me it was exciting to move to Philly because it would give me a chance to explore a brand new city. I grew up in New Jersey, so there were occasional family trips to Philly, but I never really got to see what this city has to offer. Now as an adult, I get to do just that. Also, being much closer to NYC helps (for brand partnerships).”

Styling This Look

This outfit was inspired by Sabir Peele (@menstylepro)! I went with a very summer look with ripped white denim, a tropical shirt, and a unstructured sport coat. Surprisingly, suede is actually very appropriate for Summer due to it’s soft appearance so the loafers right perfectly!

Summer Corporate


C&H: How would you characterize your style?

@Bchanism: I would definitely say that my style is eclectic and sometimes out of the box, but it stays grounded in traditional menswear “rules”. I try to take my outfits and style to the next level by showing men (and women) how to have fun with dressing up!

Styling This Look

“This outfit was a blend of the two previous outfits. Fall-ish colors (browns, tans, and oranges), but done with Summer fabrics like Raw Silk and Linen. It was the best of both worlds!”

Fall Is Coming

C&H: What style mistakes are you slightly proud that you use to “pull off”?

@Bchanism: I used to “pull off” super loud colors, especially when it came to my trousers and blazers. They were what the industry called “GTH” or “Go-To-Hell” colors (ie. bright red, orange, or yellow pants). Don’t get me wrong, there are definitely people that can pull it off, but in my repertoire now, I can’t pull it off.

Styling This Look

“I went with a true Fall get-up, especially playing on the colors of the season (brown, burgundy, and navy) and then the seasonal fabrics (wools and tweeds). The Snuff suede fit right into that equation.”
