Like Son, Like Father

It is with no small amount of pride that I tell you that The Boy has himself some real personal style, and he loves his sports jacket:
Navy hopsack blazer with two button cuffs and patch pockets by Nordstrom, $4.99, holiday plaid shirt by Ralph Lauren, $1.99, old navy jeans and duck boots. Finished with a monogrammed Christmas pin, and an elf hat, both made with love by Mama. The entire outfit was of his own choosing, for the last day of pre-school before Christmas break. One sharp dude.

Many hours later, as I dress for work myself, I am reminded of what a great look The Boy has put together, and I find myself inspired:

Old flannel blazer, with my new turtleneck sweater, Lands' End cords in "cinnamon", and Bean Boots. The combination of rubber shoes and a blazer ought to be considered a classic, at least in Massachusetts in December.
That's one thick turtleneck, via What Price Glory?. I bit, couldn't really help it. A pinch scratchy, but I like it. Sure is warm, anyhow.

Cotton socks in "mango" seal the deal.

I can't believe how big your little guy has gotten! He looks great decked out like that.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!

You have a handsome little boy on your hands there, and with all of the style information he's absorbing in the home-lookout world!
Props on the turtleneck and the blazer, it looks great.

Good stuff. I was proud my pre-schooler chose to wear a tie when Mommy told him they were going to the movies last week. Merry Christmas, and thanks for a great blog!
