Before Winter really sets in, while it’s still unseasonably warm I thought I’d get one last floral look. And since this tie is a totally awesome deep burgundy, it doubles as a perfect autumn color scheme before the winter really sets in (I mean shit, it was like 55 last night).
I think the silk and rich colors play well against the muted earth tones of the tweed. It gives the look a lot of textural depth and a great organic feel. Paired with some burgundy shoes and green cast gray flannels (and gingham because… hey… maximalist), I think this is a great way to say goodbye to fall.
Tonight I will be attending a moderately fancy (and ostensibly autumn themed) party, so I will be wearing a suit.
This makes I believe 3 times this year I will have worn a suit (fancy dinner and job fair being the other 2).
Which is why anytime I read a blog that says “start by buying 2 suits and wearing them every day” I know I should be reading a different blog.
Brushed copper clubmasters.
Hidden lining/wool belt.
I’m proud of this one boy-o’s.
So that indian summer from yesterday? Gone.
High of 65, low of 55. A bit warm for tweed, perfect for my new burgundy corduroy jacket.
Got it in mid-may, just getting to break it out now. Such is the life of thrift store clothes. Always buying out of season because, hey, $4 burgundy corduroy jacket. And I may not follow trends, but seeing as how #menswear is gradually accepting the idea of actually wearing colors, I bet burgundy is big this fall. So I’ma try and get a jump on it.
Paired with navy flannel trousers, wool tie, silk bolt (faked pocket square) in an autumnal theme. Burgundy captoes finish it off (look, I’d wear wingtips every day if I didn’t have some strange compulsion to change things up.)
If you haven’t already assumed, fall is my favorite time to dress for mostly because it’s the one time of year my outlandish color scheme is acceptable. Oh, and corduroy. Lots and lots of corduroy.
Details in the next post.
