First of all, don’t mind the same J Brand jeans two post in a row… told you they were a staple! (I did laundry I swear) Second of all, these photos were taken on 11/11, the month and day, not the time – however I am considering them to be lucky all the same. Lastly, I know it’s been a hot spell since my last post, travels have kept me away, but I’ll be sure to fill you in on the posts to come.
For now let’s just say the past 10 days I have been in NYC, Wisconsin, Florida, and finally back home to Virginia. So the short of it – I’m going to bed immediately after this post is written, even though it’s currently 7:15PM.
What it is (in my best gangster voice): The coat is called Ada by Marc New York, so immediately I thought it would be fabulous. The leather detailing on the sleeves sold me in a heartbeat. Sadly, it collects lint like CRAZY. Had this discussion with a couple material experts, and my conclusion is that the quality of wool fabrics have taken a steep plunge for the worse. Love the cut Marc, but please include lint rollers with the next design?
Tailored menswear is taking over the casual market. To me it says, I’m chic but still laid back enough to have an IPA at that pub with all the license plates on the wall (as long as there’s a pool table) The watch and oxfords were the final touches. Working for a shoe company, I have some pretty high standards for kickers, and these babies have all the right features. Easy to slide on with the elastic lacing, comfortable, rubber sole for easy walking, and a 2″ chunky heel. The patent blue on black is a rich modern touch.
