This morning was a little colder than I anticipated and I almost had the urge to pull out the gloves and scarves. But, I restrained myself. I decided that heavier and thicker garments would suffice. And it did…for another one of my pink and green combinations.
Starting from the bottom, I went with my brown chucka dress boots from Banana Republic. These are probably my favorite pair of dress shoes, other than my saddle shoes. I bought these shoes from the Banana store in South Park Mall maybe four years ago for $30 (on sale). So, you can say that I have gotten my money’s worth out of them, although I have replaced the sole three or four times. I can be caught wearing these boots in the summer…I love them that much! I just wish Banana will make another brown leather (instead of the brown suede that they continue to make) chucka boot, so I can finally discard these. The pink and brown striped socks are Ralph Lauren Polo Rugby.
Today’s trouser are yesterday’s “Vintage Dope” feature. These are the vintage brown and green herringbone plaid trousers that I purchased from Hong Kong Vintage Clothing. And as I previously state, very comfortable! My wife and I did a great job on repairing that hole.
The pink french cuff, white spread collar dress shirt is from Brooks Brothers.
Pink cufflinks are made by Nautica.
Green paisley bow tie by Ralph Lauren.
Brown Cardigan is from Fossil. Yes, the company that make watches and accessories. They also make clothes…and sometimes they do a great job. The cardigan is very thick and very well insulated. In other words, it’s hot…but perfect for this weather. Trust me, I will waste no time removing it once inside.
