• Denim Debate

    Style | Dress Code  

    The week with the gentlemen of Prepidemic continues as I caught up with Dennis and Woody on the northwest corner of campus.

    Photographed in Princeton, NJ (enlarge)

    Noteworthy (Sarkozy & Hines): Though tired of the combination of denim and tailored clothing, I adore my RRL buckle-backs, immensely closer to the fabric’s roots in work-wear. I felt it only more irreverent to play up the contrasts by substituting the traditional charcoal flannels from this Oxford University look with the raw, red-cast indigo.

    I like this black watch duffle because the pattern is bold and beautiful without being obnoxious. Pairing it with holiday-friendly burgundies and reds makes for a season appropriate ensemble, though I wouldn’t advise wearing velvet slippers for a walk longer than one across campus.

    Noteworthy (Castleberry): Contrasting club collar with collar pin, straight leg jeans, Prince Albert slippers.

    This very much looks like a page out of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Paradise Lost, great style.

    @ Straw Boater… I bought a Gloverall black watch duffle from Barney’s last year.

    I wish more men dressed like this in real life.  Black watch plaid makes my heart go pitter-pat.

    Genevieve- Agreed. There is not a good “uncreepy” way to say it, but both of these guys are entirely dreamy :)

    The guy with the bike is like my dream come true. Didn’t mean for that to sound so creepy.

    great stuff FEC…too bad dressing like that isn’t the standard for Princeton and other colleges like it across the east coast

    Awesome combination! This guys know how to dress and those red shoes are looking sharp. The background is perfect, what a great picture.
