September 16th

These new wayfarers are cool. I got them with prescription lenses. I have the old ones as well but these are smaller and more to my liking. I like dive watches for any occasion. I'm wearing this Citizen automatic with an orange band I got on Ebay.

September 15th

I got this H&M shirt the other day because I liked the colors and the slim fit. The weather is beautiful and finally cool enough to wear clothes again after a long hot summer of nothing but shorts and T shirts. It will be jacket weather soon and I'm looking forward to it.

Polo Shirt

These polo shirts are nice for spring and summer. I think it's OK to wear a blue one with jeans as long as they are not the same shade of blue. I've always liked to combine brown with dark blue and I like the way these shoes look with the dark blue colored jeans.

Blue Laces

Linen shirt by Ralph Lauren and some blue laces to liven up these Bass canvas oxfords. The green canvas belt has a suede insert. It's made by Legacy which is a brand from Argentina that I discovered years ago. Whenever someone goes there on vacation I ask them to bring me one.

May 6th 2012

I've been looking for these Cole Haan oxfords for a while but couldn't find them anywhere. I finally got lucky on Ebay. The laces were horrible and couldn't be removed so I had to cut them. I found a nice replacement pair of laces also on Ebay. These shoes have something they call Nike Air technology.  Gas is trapped in a capsule somewhere in the heel and that is supposed to make the shoes more comfortable. I personally don't think it makes much of a difference to an already comfortable shoe.

Memories of Winter

Not much of a winter to remember this year. Spring is a couple of days away but it feels like it's been here for months. This is what I wore to go to the city today. A mix of previous looks I've posted. I'm still enjoying these cool suede oxfords that I was able to use all winter. I like matching the red shoelaces to my belt. The sawtooth method of lacing makes them pop a little more. It's a simple detail but it works.

American Apparel makes some great thermal henley shirts. I don't know what they do to the cotton to get it to feel this soft but it's just great to wear. The vest is from H&M and I thought it goes well with the shirt. The Tag watch I bought in the mid 90's. It's a 2000 series chronograph. I like the grey dial and classic look. The jeans are 7 for all mankind. It's a very good brand but rather expensive. Several years ago I couldn't find other brands that fit so I bought these and they have aged nicely. Today H&M, Levis, and others, make jeans that fit just as well and are less than half the price.

Asphalt Jungle

It's hard to believe there has been no winter in NYC this year. The temperature was near 60 all day today. This is just a look to go out to the asphalt jungle of Manhattan tonight. Late dinner and a bar or two. No coat, no jacket :)

Blazer and Vest

I've worn this puffy vest on the inside of my grey tweed blazer but on this one I prefer it on the outside. I think blue goes very well with brown. The warm weather means there is no need for a coat and it's both fun and practical to layer. I'm loving the henley shirts that H&M has come out with. I'm wearing a beige one here that you can see a little of. I know H&M cotton shrinks so I was smart this time and got a larger size. After washing it fits perfectly.

Shades of Grey

It's the first day of February but once again feels like Spring. I'm not feeling very colorful lately and have a lot of grey stuff so I just went with this.
