    The fit is absolutely perfect. While there is an abundance of accessories, they appear very subtle.  Perfection!

    Try the Tombs & 1789 also the original Clydes on M Street! in the Fall! I’ve enjoyed it since 1970’s!

    That is the correct blog for anybody who wants to seek out out about this topic. You notice so much its virtually arduous to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply great!

    @JAH - I wish I could experience working there. I actually don’t work for a clothing/apparel company whatsoever. Though I think its the direction I would hope to move towards as my career progresses.

    Saturdays, don’t you work at Gant Rugger?

    Those are some really cool shorts. But i would think if it’s that hot to wear those shorts, a sweatshirt wouldn’t be a good choice?

    @AEV - I don’t see how it doesn’t take some confidence to wear her outfit. If she didn’t put effort into the outfit and radiate confidence this would be a completely different look.

    I personally wear my pair around friends and co-workers and everyone gives my compliments, and mentions it takes guts/confidence to wear something like that. There’s no need for a Ralph Lauren or Rugby store to be anywhere near me to wear them. As Fred mentioned, there are several occasions and spots wear they fit in just fine.

    I suggest you grab a pair and try them out yourself, they seem to be on sale at the moment.

    @ Mr. AEV-

    You have convinced me to give The Tombs another chance. Is there a time of the year (season) and day of the week that you would suggest that I revisit this establishment. I cancelled a reservation that a lady made for us at 1789 once and made a reservation at the uber- pretentious Inn at Little Washington instead. I regretted having interfered with her plans after we had a particularly unpleasant dining experience that evening at the Inn, so I will also keep 1789 in mind for the future. Where do you prefer to frequent for a well mixed and reasonably priced gin and tonic in the District?

    I hope that the arrangements with the lady are coming along well as she is clearly betrothed to a gentleman of distinction.

    @Thad - The Tombs, for what it may be worth, has been around since 1962 (making it one of the oldest, continuously operating restaurants in the city). It inspired the setting for “St. Elmo’s Fire” (and was profiled in the Original “Preppy Handbook”). It’s breads and desserts are made fresh daily by the restaurant 1789, a five star establishment next door that is rated one of the area’s very best restaurants. It is well reviewed and recommended by the Washington Post’s dining critic. It oozes authenticity and is a right of passage for Georgetown seniors/faculty/alumni/residents. Simply put, while you may not have enjoyed it, I don’ think it sucks.

    I agree, Martin’s is great…I never said otherwise.

    @Cam—What is effortless to one may be laborious to another. It’s about how you carry yourself.

    And most importantly, remember that this is New York (more fashion), not New England (more function)


    cam left a comment on 6/30/2012 at 1:30 PM:

    @F.E. Castleberry - you conducted an interview with Glenn Ebert in 2011 and he asked you what your definition of prep is, your response “prep is about dressing perfectly without trying to, appearing to do everything well with ease..”. Do you feel that this picture is in that spirit?


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 6/30/2012 at 1:01 PM:

    @Thad—Would you turn that date down?


    Thad left a comment on 6/30/2012 at 12:39 PM:

    Oh, and The Tombs sucks, AEV. (Thanks for recommending it, sir.) Martin’s is a better establishment.

    @AEV

    A date at the Rugby Cafe in Georgetown with Mr. Fred Castleberry.


    AEV left a comment on 6/30/2012 at 11:56 AM:

    @Saturdays—This outfit strikes you as ‘gutsy’? A logoed sweatshirt and critter shorts? I don’t get gutsy.


    Saturdays left a comment on 6/30/2012 at 2:53 AM:

    @AEV - if you have the guts to do it, you can wear that or other outfits similar to hers anywhere.

    It just takes some courage and sense of style.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 6/29/2012 at 8:56 PM:

    @AEV—Perhaps…and other spots and occasions.


    AEV left a comment on 6/29/2012 at 8:27 PM:

    @Fred - Yes, in a Rugby shop, in NYC.

    Bow tie with untucked shirt; sweatshirt with short shorts—-> Contradictions + complexity = CONFIDENCE. And she looks like a young Marilise Flusser which is never a bad thing.

    Adorable. It’s all about those pink shorts, isn’t it? Any other bottom would just change the feel completely.


    DL left a comment on 6/28/2012 at 12:41 PM:

    A pretty nice outfit. Studied and outlandish? Absolutely, but women can pull that off far better than men.


    Angel left a comment on 6/28/2012 at 10:36 AM:

    @Paul, dude I think so. My guess is she is a Employee at the Rugby story.

    Angel’s Point of View

    A beautiful young lady in a bowtie and OCBD is hard to come by and sexy as hell…when done correctly! This is perfect and this is done correctly! I love it! Job well done, F.C.

    Is everything she has on from Rugby? Really?


    Saturdays left a comment on 6/28/2012 at 8:37 AM:

    She is a masterpiece. Great shot Fred!

    I love the color of those shorts. And the belt is a nice touch as well. Great photo.
