• Work Up a Sweat

    Dress Code

    Noteworthy: effective layering is about more than just warmth—keep it interesting by mixing up fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns. Fleece pants outside the house are easily worn when cut to sit closer to your body. Ribbed cuffs at the ankles are ideal.

    If loafers are for loafing, I wonder what that says about my blucher moccasins.

    @Chenners—It was Glenn O’Brien who said, “Loafers are for loafing. And tasseled loafers are for class-conscious loafers.”

    Tassel loafers with sweatpants? Didn’t someone once say “form follows function, everything else is just trying too hard”?

    @Brock—About 40 degrees.

    Looking good! How cold is it up there, though? I’d be sweating like crazy with all those layers, even in 40 degree weather. (If that’s the point, fair enough.)

    @Roger C. Russell II—This particular coat is their mid length Monty. I picked this up brand new on eBay. I believe the previous owner bought it from England.

    I really like the Gloverall. Is that particular coat their original military version. I know that Montgomery wore one that color. Also, did you get the coat in the United States?

    @JHB—Why not worn under the flannel? Just because an item has a zipper does not necessarily mean it has to be worn as outerwear. It’s ok to wear your clothes with a little…what’s the word…imagination.

    Why is the warm up jacket worn under the flannel?  The look seems to lack function covering up the zipper on the jacket in such a way.
