• In the Red

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: brightly colored duffel coat and reversible scarf. When you travel as much as I do, the reversible scarf becomes more and more appealing. I have found very few outfits this red tartan/grey herringbone combination doesn't work with.

    Rig:
    • Gloverall duffel coat
    • Ralph Lauren reversible herringbone/tartan wool scarf
    oxford cloth button down
    • Gant Nordic ski sweater
    • Ralph Lauren sterling silver engine turn buckle and leather strap
    • Rugby raw selvedge denim
    marled socks
    Bass Weejuns

    F.E. You were at the head of the line when they were handing out a good full head of hair!  Seems you are not parting it in this photo.  My vote, dump the part, go with the full Gekko look.  It works for you as does the red coat.

    The burnishing on those loafers is awesome—I’m assuming those are a different pair than the ones you linked to. Where can I find those brown Weejuns? Great looking shoes.

    FEC should come to Missouri and photograph me

    Just spitballing here, but that’d actually be a pretty dope series of photos - “The Odd Couple.” You know - something like a campaign along the lines of “Meet the Hilfigers,” but with you and KJP, or even FEC himself. Seeing somebody who’s a bit more buttoned-up juxtaposed with somebody a bit more “braceleted-up” - each, however, still sharing the same basic foundation of style. I’d enjoy it! You’re all so photogenic too ;)

    @Brad - Fair enough. Somewhat to my surprise, our correspondence thus far has uncovered a fair amount of agreement and a number of commonalities. While colored bracelets will never be my thing, I’ve always admired KJP’s enterprising spirit, marketing savvy, and success.

    @AEV - I was just thinking how fun and interesting it would be to listen to a conversation between the two of you. (I hope that doesn’t sound as pathetic as it reads.) And, please take this in the spirit in which it’s intended, I’ve imagined the encounter would play out a bit like an episode of the “The Odd Couple.”

    @Brad - I have not met KJP, though we’ve corresponded and I’m hopeful we’ll meet in person some time soon. Why?

    Has AEV ever met KJP?

    I need to get a good quality leather band for my old seiko 5, what are some stores/ sites that you might recommend?

    Looks like the last Dress Code post featuring someone other than FEC was December 12th…

    Are those the 75th edition Weejuns? They look different then the ones the link brings up.

    This is a cool picture. What are you listening to or is it just a prop?

    The style blogger has nearly an identical jacket, scroll down to 1/19: http://sbdaily.thestyleblogger.com/

    This is a fantastic photo. The red of the coat is brilliant against that wall. You look cold, though. Being from Boston, I’d love to see what you would do when, like we often do, hats become necessary accessories.

    Great outfit, especially the coat and scarf.


    TJH left a comment on 1/22/2012 at 7:39 PM:

    Oh and it looks much colder in this one, stay warm!

    One of my favourite posts you’ve ever done. The scarf and the coat go together perfectly and everything is just spot on.

    What do you usually use in your hair?

    One of my top five favorite posts of yours—ironically it is in company with your other photo in NYC with the red Gloverall. Love the camp socks from JCrew this season, the brand has stepped up their game immensely.

    Very nice as usual.  Everything looks great together.  NYC was very cold the day that picture was taken.  May I ask why you chose penny loafers over something else that may have kept you’re feet warmer?

    Never considered it, but I might give the loafers + camp socks a go tomorrow…
