    Looks like a young Cy Twombly. Props.

    I can’t say I dislike it, since green pants are quite hard to pull-off on a day other than St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve recently had the chance to don a pair while visiting Eastern Europe and I got quite the number of looks and grins :). I personally wear them with a pair of nicely worn desert boots, a dark navy two button blazer and a solid baby blue shirt, no tie, brown belt.

    Shoes are really great and like the belt. Nice.

    Great look.  I love the shirt/tie combo.

    Tie length looks good to me.  I know that down to the belt buckle is “correct”, but I would rather err on being too short than too long.

    He looks refined. Interesting look.

    Fred—That’s a fair answer. For the record: the descriptions were just an interesting way to show a mixing of brands. I’m not trying to emulate an outfit or rush out to buy what’s featured on here, but I can appreciate more than just a photo for inspiration.

    This how I wish I was wearing my green today. It’s a nod to green without being in your face. There is so much tacky green in New York right now. Brilliant Atlanta.

    I actually REALLY like those pants

    The Boss—There are several reasons I don’t disclose what people are wearing on the street anymore.  One of those reasons is because readers were getting too caught up in the designers (leaving snide comments about certain designers being featured too often).
    Secondly, Dress Code isn’t about the designers. It’s about the individual…their style, how they style themselves, etc.  There are a number of clothiers (to the right) where you can pick up all the pieces for a similar look. It’s meant to inspire, not tell you to run out and buy a Brooks Brothers oxford.

    Great look.


    The Boss left a comment on 3/17/2010 at 11:51 AM:

    Fred—Again, why did you decide to remove the descriptions from the Dress Code posts?

    Will—Chinos are by Sid Mashburn.

    Top-drawer look indeed. Green pants can be tricky. But when done right, they are perfect. These are subdued. Brand?

    I think noone was suprised that the long sleeve was a Polo Ralph Lauren. Haha !

    I love the pants. Gives the outfit character.

    Shuman—The long sleeve rugby is Rugby by Ralph Lauren.

    Basics are underrated! Anyone know the source of the shirt?

    Socialite Alice Topping poolside in Palm Beach proves that some WASPs do indulge in the art of the recline (ca. 1959).

    A Privileged Life is one of my all time favorite Assouline books, and this is one of my favorite photographs from that book! White bikini bottoms with a gray cashmere sweater, stunning.

    Hey, it’s 1959. All bathing suits from then looked kinda funny to contemporary eyes. And it wasn’t meant to be a pinup picture, I don’t believe. The picture (except for that, which isn’t that bad) is remarkably contemporary looking, that’s why we forget it was taken in 1959. And has that fabulous vibe.

    The dog’s pose is fantastic!

    I like the pic a lot! I do get the reason behind your post. I love the palm tree scenery in the background and her relaxing demeanor. The little dog is the cherry on top! Keep up the good work my friend!

    For those curious, that’s a bathing suit bottom—but beside the point.  Focu

    I like her style. She looks preppy but not in that trying too hard type of way. Too many hipsters fail in this. Here she’s really mixing textures and pattens that normally would clash but on her they blend together well. I especially love how she centered everything with the black leggings and the chambray shirt. Hot!

    This is—forgive my girliness—super cute. Love the varsity jacket!


    anthony left a comment on 3/13/2010 at 5:49 PM:

    i’ve been on repetitive missions to get my girlfriends (past and present) to dress this way and i’m hoping that i might succeed with the current one.

    awesome look—the varsity customization and color pallet work great. adding chambray to any ensemble is a plus.
