    Love the shorts, shoes, watch and aviators. The rolled shorts are an interesting fashion statement that I could never pull off. The only dislike I have is the shirt—It is a great shirt, but I am fan of polos with shorts. Thanks for the fashion inspiration and I love your website.

    @Joey Dee, for coffee try Octane as well… One in west midtown and another around Emory.  It’ll knock your socks off.

    Fred, this photo is phenomenal.

    Laguna Beach Trad, I live here as well and would love to see more people dressed like Fred on the street!

    Nice. I prefer Persols and solid-coloured boat shoes myself, but the rest of the uniform is spot on. Wish more people around here would wear such clothing. Instead, we get t-shirts, denim, flop-flips, and tattoos.

    Love the look and the shorts from the thrift store; I love the thrift store! Some of the best vintage stuff can be acquired there. I love atlanta especially Virginia highlands, midtown and buckhead. Lots to do. Little five is fun, just down the road and best coffee at sanfrancisco coffee co. Local roasted! This is an interesting look for shorts. Will try on weekend.

    Stuff, one of the free Boston weeklies, recently listed boat shoes among its “Hot 100” this year. They were predicting wildly colored shoes but I haven’t seen a lot of that. I like the two-tones you’ve got here, though.

    I think I’m wearing the same outfit today. My tweaks are my grandfather’s loafers and green, round Ralph Lauren sunglasses.

    The Randolphs are a great touch.  They look sharp…I dig.

    Just hem the shorts if you want them shorter - the roll looks silly (and super girly). And, I’ve never dug the “fasion” boat shoes, with mixed colors, etc. If you must wear boat shoes on land, at least wear ones that were created with function in mind…

    I’m digging the shorter shorts look. @F.E.C., are those shorts rolled up or tailored?

    Love this outfit and particularly those shoes.  Fred, where in Atlanta is this?
