    Noteworthy: Gant oxford cloth pullover (my favorite shirt for this summer, best paired with shorts), ripped locker loop (formally employed as a signal to the ladies that you were "taken") and grosgrain watchband.

    I really would like you to make me a pair of chinos with that signature paint “splash” technique you use… also I would love to intern with you if you would consider…?

    @Brandon—That is the same shirt.  I think you will certainly enjoy it.

    Hey Fred,

    Have been looking around for a shirt like this for a while now.  Ran upon this on the Gant UK site:

    http://www.gantuk.com/shop/mens/shirts/r1_solod_oxfrod_pullover/blue/?page=0

    This looks lighter than your shirt, but i’m sure this is just because of lighting.  Could you confirm?

    @Rebecca Jenkins—As it was from last season, you could possibly find it on eBay.

    How can I order this or where can I find it to order??

    I love this look and would love to get my hands on a shirt like this!  Unfortunately, I live in the Nashville area and there are no nearby Gant locations.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

    love the shot man! It was a pleasure meeting you!

    @MPM—I tried on several pieces from the collection and am convinced that many pieces run a size small. I usually am a medium but purchased a large in this pullover. It’s cut a little more generous because it has to be pulled over your head.

    Really nice!

    I adore that watch! I will most defintaly have to pick up a gold, white face watch that is similar in the next couple weeks to give my silver,black face a break for the summer. Not sure I am a fan of pull overs myself, but you pull it off!

    The spectacles are brilliant!

    Mr. Castleberry, I must say that my favorite thing about this shot is the fact that you’re eating at Kincaid’s.  Most definitely the best burger in the DFW and surrounding areas.  Those spectacle frames aren’t bad either.


    MPM left a comment on 6/6/2010 at 8:23 PM:

    Fred, can you describe the fit of the pullover? I’m looking to order one but am not sure of the sizing.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 6/6/2010 at 1:17 PM:

    @RWF—When I do use product (which seems sporadic at best) it’s either American Crew molding clay or Bed Head (for men) Matte separation workable wax.

    We used to rip the locker loops on each other’s oxfords back in prep school. It was single-sex, and of course it turned into a flag football of sorts in the hallways (the locker loops being the ‘flags’).


    RWF left a comment on 6/5/2010 at 8:14 PM:

    Any idea what hair product he has in :)? I feel like hair is the least talked about subject in the whole fashion/preppy world.

    BTW, congrats on the Details June/July mention!

    Great shot. I’ve noticed an eating trend. What’s that about?


    Genevieve left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 10:02 PM:

    I must say, the hair is absolute perfection as well!


    Christian Bourasseau left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 8:59 PM:

    Just Brilliant!

    Love this shot! One of my favorites of yours.

    @George—My glasses are Eye Bobs readers that I had prescription lenses put into.

    Love his shirt…but what I really want is a burger from Kincaid’s!


    George left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 3:41 PM:

    This is a terrific look!  May I ask about your glasses?  I’ve been looking for a pair of school boy horn-rimmed glasses for the longest time.


    josh mccullock left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 3:41 PM:

    lookin tough Fred! I’ll be needing that pullover, thanks!


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 2:55 PM:

    @The Boss—The Gant pullover retails for $115.  If you are thinking about picking one up, do so quickly as they are a limited run.

    @T.J.—That watch face is a no frills Timex ($15 from Wal-Mart).  I also like this Timex gold watch face (http://www.timex.com/dp/B00021CE10?ie=UTF8&timexBrand=core) Smart Turnout does make some nice grosgrain straps but also check out Central Watch (http://www.centralwatch.com/home.php?cPath=48_54_160&products_id=138) for a nice price point as well.


    The Boss left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 2:01 PM:

    Fred—What do the Gant popovers retail for?


    The Boss left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 2:00 PM:

    @T.J.—Whatever you do, do not waste your money on the J. Crew joint. Amazon is your best bet—at a fraction of the cost.


    T.J. left a comment on 6/4/2010 at 1:30 PM:

    What kind of watch face is that? I’ve been looking for one to pair with different straps but am not in love with the J. Crew/ Smart Turnout watch faces. Any suggestions on where to buy?

    What a shirt. Bring on the summer.

    @RWF—The locker loop (not shown) is the loop on the back of a shirt employed for use in hanging your shirt in a gym locker. Gant is one of the companies known for first incorporating locker loops into their shirting.  Historically, by your girlfriend ripping the locker loop, it signaled to the other ladies that you were “taken”.  More of a tongue-in-cheek nod to the past.

    what’s a ripped locker loop?
