“As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m really starting to get more and more into 70’s style. Unlike Dan, I’m going with tie dye instead of paisley; keeping it 70’s casual.”
“I’m glad I can finally put away the heavy jackets and use my lightweight outwear as we transition in to warmer weather. This jacket was actually given to me by Dan because the sleeves are a touch long, but a slight cuff does the trick.”
“I’m all about the small details and the subtle blue windowpane pattern in the fabric of this jacket is a perfect example of that.”
“I’ve been breaking these chukka boots in ever since I picked them up from the vintage store a few weeks ago. Becket Simonon makes great quality shoes, especially at the their price point. You can never go wrong with Goodyear welted footwear.”
- Navy quilted jacket by Club Monaco
- Grey glenplaid suit jacket by Michael Andrews Bespoke
- Blue striped cotton shirt by Michael Andrews Bespoke
- Indigo denim jeans by J.Crew
- Brown leather “Bailey” chukka boot by Beckett Simonon
You may remmeber our friend Ryan Devens from San Francisco.
“This is just a classic two-piece tweed suit, for the unpredictable weather of SF. The pants are cuffed to give it more of a vintage flare, but they’re still trim to the point that the suit looks a little different than your grandfather’s vintage two-piece with all the moth-holes. The shoulder is natural and the gorge-line is a bit higher, helping to create something new from something old. The pink color of the shirt helps brighten the entire outfit while the suit serves as the base palette in a muted, dark charcoal. I added the tall, slim boots to hint at a German military vibe, which again, helps to give new life and refinement to a conservative piece.”
Thanks for reading.
Yours in style,
