    Culture  

    Known for her silk Hermes head scarves and dark, round sunglasses, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis nonchalantly embodies her fashion icon status wearing a prep staple interpreted in leather. Even incognito, Jackie retains her elegance and grace.

    I just purchased my new set of wingtip oxfords from RL.  They were on a decent sale and only my size left so I’m really happy.  Now I need cedar shoe trees.  What’s a good source for that, anyone?

    Anyway I am a female.  I do own bow ties, long ties, brogues, my dads Dobbs hat, and heeled wingtips.  I am in love with menswear.  Recently I started wearing my husbands sweaters and such. So glad I found this site which is all about my fave style.  Now I have a name for it.

    Absolutely classic.  Does it get any better than this?

    @F.E.- you’ve inspired me to throw up some female images on my blog.  Thanks.

    I love this look - it’s one that I rock regularly ... in fact my Twitter page has a silhouette of me with the exact same look, @kalynjohnson. It’s a timeless chic look.  Viva Jackie O!

    That leather trench is to die for.
