J&M Boots 3
October 9th, 2013
3. Dan – Casual Friday
I’ve been big into separates lately, like this windowpane blazer with the pants from my burgundy suit.
Using solid trousers to pull-out an accent color in a textured blazer is one of the oldest tricks in the menswear book. Usually I’m not so into the “matchy matchy” thing, but I think this works well.
It was a very hot day in NYC when we shot this – hence the deep neckline on the shirt. I have no problem showing a little chest hair in warm weather.
As you can see from the small magnet inside the collar, I’ve been back to using Wurkin Stiffs to keep my collars standing upright. What a great invention…now if only someone could find a way to cover the magnets by sewing them directly into the shirt (so people can’t see them, and you can’t lose them).
Once again, I was surprised at how comfortable these J&M boots are.
The leather lining and padded insole makes for a smooth ride, even through the first wear.
