Thick Glasses and Nato Straps

Looks like I did not grow tired and quit after a month! I will try and keep this going with mainly "original" posts, as in my own pictures and stuff, though I can't help but reblog as there is some great stuff out there!

Michael Bastian Three-Button Jacket Michael Bastian keeps surprising us with these pieces that have an old-man cool element to them. The windowpane is one of those patterns we thought was dead forever, and then Michael brings it back and recolors it in this rust and olive, out of a scratchy wool. It works as a piece of outerwear in the early fall, and then when it’s freezing outside you can pair with a shirt and tie and wear it in the office or a turtleneck and jeans on the weekend—it’s incredibly versatile. Because of the way Michael has cut it and fashioned it, it’s something incredibly non-traditional, but still has that traditional appeal.

THE GREAT NAVY TROUSER DEBATE
by David Isle
Although worsted wool navy trousers are a common sight in American offices today, they are like the Windows 8 operating system that their wearers stare at all day: the vestigial result of a product adapted too far away from its original environment. They look too much like what they often are - suit pants whose owner simply left his jacket at home once the dress code changed to business casual. For this reason, it is difficult, although not impossible, to find images of men wearing odd navy trousers in the pages of Apparel Arts magazine, which even today remain a canonical reference for men interested in dressing well.

Great advice….now I need some navy trousers!
