Just Peachy

Today, I added a little color to the natural browns and tans that I adore…and the overall look is just peachy:

Brown wingtip dress boots by Banana Republic.

Blue polka dot socks are a Macy’s store brand.

Chocolate corduroy trousers by J.Crew.

Light blue spread collar dress shirt is by Ralph Lauren.

Vintage peach Jos A Bank wide necktie was a thrifting find.  Tie pin is a Belk’s store brand.

Tan herringbone tweed blazer with notch lapels and center vent was a thrifting find.

Silk peach pocket square was a thrifting find.

Final Look!!


Look Book Entry For 10/01/2012

Let’s break down today’s look, starting with the spectator style wingtips from Ralph Lauren. 

 These shoes consist of a canvas / leather combo, as you can probably tell.  I couldn’t tell when I ordered them online.  I was a pleasant surprise, nevertheless.  Very comfortable shoe.  And there are the striped Ralph Lauren socks. 

These are one of those finds were my wife will watch me pick them out in a store and she will say something like, “Please don’t buy those!”  That tells me that they are so ugly that they are dope! (Makes perfect sense to me)

Flat front trousers from Brooks Brothers.  All of the pants I wear are flat front.

The canary yellow spread collar dress shirt is from Ralph Lauren, as well.

Belk’s store brand bow tie. 

Pocket square?  Well, it is today!  This piece is actually one of my wife’s head scarfs (I cannot reiterate it or stress it enough, I just have a lack of concern for rules).  I thought that it was the perfect compliment to my bow tie…and my socks.  Thanks to the wife for the alley-oop!

I found this herringbone tweed blazer with suede elbow patches at a vintage clothing store in Atlanta.  I cannot remember the name of the store, but it’s located in Five Points directly accross the street from Moodz Music.  Notice the thicker lapel on this jacket…true vintage!  The story that I came up with in my head is that this coat used to belong to Al Green and he has performed and conducted interviews in this jacket.  Honestly, I don’t need anyone to verify the validity of that story…because it’s a fact, in my mind.  And that’s all I need.

Finished Look!
