    Dress Code  

    Photographed in Atlanta, GA

    Noteworthy: though not consistently cool yet in the south, dressing for the weather while hinting at the season with burgundy bow tie and boat shoes (a defining color this fall/winter). Transition from summer to fall with select summer pieces in autumn's color palette.

    Fred, I’m loving the entire look; the fit of the shirt, the muted colors, and especially the signature belt. I also wanted to add that the titles of your posts are always perfectly clever.

    One question: When is it time to put the topsiders away for the season?

    Ah. Yes. This is very well thought out dressing at its best.

    This would be great on a weekend with a pink or blue shirt and some monk straps to shake things up a bit. I will do this come Saturday with my new R u g b y shorts . I have a black shirt with little white flowers on it with varying light blue and red middles (the part of the flower escapes me) what bowtie can I wear with it?

    This is a look I am also seeing around town in Austin, Texas. I think it’s very fun and a good look for our so-called fall weather (aka 85 degrees)

    Your shorts are about 5” too long for the south.  Nice frames though - are they Moscot?

    Just perfect.  Love the outfit.

    Absolutely flawless! Is that the L.L Bean belt? Great Picture!

    Nice Outfit, the watchstrap adds a little contrast colour.

    I also wear my burgundy boat shoes today, but with a dark denim and a navy/burgundy Rugbyshirt.

    Great transition outfit! This time of year always presents a difficult situation for dressing!

    Absolutely love the outfit, especially the boat shoes!

    Cheers.

    I love this! After reading your Tweets about “dressing for the weather, hinting at the season” it’s on my mind every time I get dressed now. And this morning it’s a bit cooler in Georgia!

    Love the burgundy.
