• Fall/Winter ‘11 Essentials

    Top Drawer | Style | Prep Essentials  

    I like New York. In the fall, I love New York. The perfect tweed jacket, wool scarves, that beloved pair of faded jeans, shaggy shetland sweaters, and the classic peacoat migrate out of the tiny closets of New Yorkers down to the streets of Manhattan. It’s inspired. This week, Men of Habit will show you how to fold these fall essentials into your look with relative ease. Chris Callis and I worked with Phineas Cole, Billy Reid, J. Press, Gant Rugger, Schott, Allen Edmonds, and others to put together five looks that hopefully inspire you well into the new year.

    Gorgeous patch pockets on the jacket in the sixth picture ... especially with the lavender chinos. Heavenly.

    @Big Jon search for sebago penny loafers on ebay and single it out from low to high. I found a pair for 20.00 free shipping new and I just recently looked yesterday and there are still deals out there on ebay like that. Hope that helps some.

    @Ryan—The goose down vest is by Penfield and can be purchased on their website currently.

    Can someone tell me what brand that down vest is and where I can get one…Very classy!

    Wonderful shots and styling indeed. I love that greenish/blueish blazer it looks like cashmere or wool - paired with the purpleish pants. I would love to get that as a gift for my husband but which store is it from. My guess is J. Press? Beautiful material!

    Great work FEC! May I ask who makes the black watch peacoat? Thanks!

    @Chens - Not necessarily

    Just to play devil’s advocate, the soles look new when I zoom on the photo.

    I’ve seen a legit patina on a pair of Boyer’s shoes, but they were 25 years old.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 10/11/2011 at 11:08 AM:

    @Chens—Ah of course, let me clarify.  Chris and I pulled the shoes from our own wardrobes.


    Chens left a comment on 10/11/2011 at 9:11 AM:

    The shoes wouldn’t have a patina if they’re new, since a patina by definition is something acquired through aging.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 10/11/2011 at 12:03 AM:

    Big Jon—The penny loafers are Allen Edmonds.  Edmonds are a great option if you aren’t willing to spend the cash for Aldens.  Also, you can buy used on eBay.

    @Jon—The denim is by Stone Island.

    Love the first look with the striped sweater and plaid jacket. Hot!


    Big Jon left a comment on 10/10/2011 at 11:08 PM:

    I’m definately inspired. My favorite is the one with the navy and burgendy sweater. Is that gentleman wearying penny loafers and if so what brand are they? I’m trying to find a pair that won’t break the bank.

    Who makes the jeans in the first photo?


    J left a comment on 10/10/2011 at 8:32 PM:

    All around great looks with one exception…

    The checked jacket over striped sweater isn’t working for me… I guess you have to know the rules to break them, but it still seems a bit garish

    Can you do one for the ladies?

    Love the look of tweed and puffer vests in the fall! This post makes for wonderful inspiration!

    I’m loving the black watch coat.  Actually, all of these looks are great.  The striped sweater looks very comfortable.  The only ‘bump’ for me, personally, is that I wouldn’t wear the purple-ish pants in the top photo. Everything else is a win-win for sure.

    Wonderful.  Welcome back Fall, I’ve missed you.  Great work Fred!  Cheers, -Scott

    @AEV—Those saddles are Allen Edmonds, yes.  They are a beautiful shoe…nice patina to them.

    Those saddle shoes in the first pick are amazing. Allen Edmonds? Really nice pic Fred…
