It gets sunny..it almost gets warm, warm enough anyway that you can pretend its warm...or at least delve into the bright colors of the season you wish it was.
This combo of Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece navy blazer ($5.99), vintage Brooks Brothers pink stripes shirt (couple of bucks) and bright green silk knit tie for the Andover Shop ($1.99) tend to be my favorite way to coax the Spring fever out of people.
The "tie tuck" is a ridiculous affectation, but worth a shot now and then. This tie is just long enough to do it.
Charcoal worsted vintage slacks ($4.99) and brown suede Ferragamo loafers ($5.99). I pulled out the lavender socks, and the yellow ones, and the pink ones, but in the end opted for quiet grey. Even I know when to keep it down sometimes. (speaking of grey worsted slacks, a ton of them just went up in the shop, along with neckties, suits and jackets. Check it out, so ends the shameless plug.)
The tweed caps are displaced by cotton khaki for the first time today, though this off white cotton cable knit from Italy ($3.99) is on hand for sundown when the temperature drops, to keep me warm without revoking my insistence that it finally be Spring.
Brighten up, but stay warm. Tennis shirts and madras are on the way.
I got a thing for green ties - that knit one you have if perfect!
Where on earth did you find a Brooks Bros Golden Fleece blazer for $5.99?
Ratcheting up the pink and green a notch, nice.
nice shot of the loafers, you caught some 'bling' from the sun off the bit.
im a new reader and I would love to know where you go to find those clothes at those prices
i think you'd look great in a blue tie
Again with the classic preppy combo, pink and green--but pimped out with the bit loafers. Wonderful!
Stop standing like that. It's very troubling.
I love the green tie; it gives the outfit such a nice fresh feeling.
Really nice blog in general.
