    It was nice meeting you outside the Rugby store yesterday.  I wish had more time to shoot-the-shit with you.  that duffle bag looks great in person! 
    ps that lady you were with was hella sexy!!


    TS left a comment on 8/11/2010 at 4:43 PM:

    The clothes fit wonderfully.  The bow tie is the cherry on top.  I LOVE IT!


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 11:33 PM:

    @Ryan—The white bucks are by Cole Haan (w/Nike Air) and are extremely comfortable.  I appreciate the red brick sole in addition to the comfort.


    Ryan left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 11:24 PM:

    Spot on sir.  I own the same belt and love the inspiration here (and for the record the off center look is a hit, not miss).  Been searching for white bucks I actually like - liking the look of those.  Brand please.

    I really like that bag. Good job ol’ chum. I like the fact it’s not a ‘Feed Haiti’ bag.


    Joey dee left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 7:41 PM:

    This is exactly the look I had today. Contrast club collar shire skull & bones bowtie John Varvatos Chuck pants with straps, no belt, bag or bucks did rock Cole Haan monk straps, sock less, of course. I believe that jeans are too hot to wear in summer especially in the South, unless white; otherwise khakis or colored chinos. Sir, you do live some life.


    Andy left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 7:31 PM:

    Killer.  Just killer.  I wish I could see a little more detail on the bow tie.

    @Elizabeth—My weekend bag is from Rugby (w/customized letter patch and hand stitched monogram).


    Elizabeth left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 4:12 PM:

    That bag rocks. Where is it from?


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 2:21 PM:

    @B Prescott—Now you’re getting it.


    B Prescott left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 2:03 PM:

    this is nearly identical to lee norwood’s look a few posts back


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 1:45 PM:

    @Max—The “C” stands for Castleberry.


    Al left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 12:32 PM:

    Nice job F.E., that’s a good summer look. The bucks make the photo.


    K. Nights left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 12:11 PM:

    I wish everyone dressed more like this.


    Max left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 10:53 AM:

    What does the C on the bag stand for?


    Brian left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 9:57 AM:

    Very sharp!  Love the shoes and bow tie.


    Christian Bourasseau left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 9:29 AM:

    What a brilliant look! So refreshing. I specially like the bag and the belt. This is a smart look, love it!


    Chris left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 9:28 AM:

    Yap…bow ties look great - especially in this case!
    Also love the belt plus matching watch-strap!


    Laguna Beach Trad left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 7:48 AM:

    Nice. Wonderful shirt, belt, and bag.


    naked left a comment on 8/9/2010 at 6:10 AM:

    Nice ensemble. It’s too bad that one cannot wear bow ties anymore without getting awkward looks (at least where i am living).
    By the way, great forearms!

    it’s a cute look.

    FEC - it’s a little off topic but you recently posted a photo wearing a Jack Robie shirt. I wonder if you could provide a bit more information. A - How did you find out about them? and B - How do you rate the shirt? Thank you for your help.


    Ian Carr left a comment on 8/8/2010 at 2:58 PM:

    I like it.

    This is trendy but it is a nice look.


    trip left a comment on 8/6/2010 at 6:59 AM:

    Are you sure those are beefrolls?  They look more like full-strap loafers.


    Joel left a comment on 8/6/2010 at 6:43 AM:

    Looks like Newbury Street to me! I’m there all the time. Love the outfit, and the site, of course.

    It’s all about the white bucks here, I think.

    BTW, I’m from just up the road from you; Frisco (but currently in Kyoto, Japan).


    The Untidy Pilgrim left a comment on 8/6/2010 at 12:40 AM:

    Perfect.


    Christian Bourasseau left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 9:15 PM:

    Lovely look. Very natural.

    Love. Adore. Perfection. One of my favorite looks yet.

    Beautiful. The girl. The belt. The shoes. The girl.


    Connetiquette left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 3:10 PM:

    I love this entire look


    Elizabeth left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 10:27 AM:

    Hmm. Something about the belt seems off to me, but otherwise, she looks great.


    Thornproof left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 9:44 AM:

    Certainly a preppier photo than this one: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/05/richard-hilfiger-arrested_n_671520.html


    NWR left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 8:53 AM:

    @FEC, or anyone else for that matter, when is it appropriate to wear a washed-oxford-style shirt with a suit? When isn’t it? I prefer the comfort, character, and versatility of washed shirts to stiff, boring “dress” shirts. I’d like to hear your thoughts. Thanks, and keep up the great work!


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 8:25 AM:

    @robdarko—Yes, this is the young lady from April. We found ourselves at this party in The Hamptons that will eventually makes its way up here for everyone to experience.


    robdarko left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 7:59 AM:

    Is this the girl next door from April?  In any event:  This girl is poised and has a great sense of style.

    I had the same D90, well, looked the same. Mine was #971, like a fool I traded in for the Discovery SE.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/5/2010 at 9:30 AM:

    @Andrea—The braces are by Ralph Lauren.


    K left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 11:39 PM:

    I love the outfit. It looks very put together and the look is effortless.


    Connetiquette left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 10:44 PM:

    I’m a sucker for Defenders


    Elizabeth left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 10:08 PM:

    It’s a great outfit


    Laguna Beach Trad left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 8:52 PM:

    Nice photo. I know where this is. She is very cute, and those eyes and that smile are killer. I would certainly not refuse if she asked me for my number or suggested we meet for dinner.


    Andrea left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 6:08 PM:

    Love this look!  The repp braces are fabulous - any idea where she found them?


    bunny left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 3:43 PM:

    cute :) blondes are so pretty in pale yellow. and i like the hot pink detail.


    jack left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 12:33 PM:

    just a wild guess… you can find lots of stylish people at highland park village.


    Christian Bourasseau left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 10:05 AM:

    She looks very good!


    Sloane Raver left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 9:51 AM:

    It’s too bad they wont bring the Defender back to the states, they are the best off-road trucks out there.

    Andy M left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 8:59 AM:

    There’s nothing I don’t like about this picture.  The last two posts are perfectly detailed.  I think the bright suspenders set off the rest of the outfit perfectly.  Also, the D90 is classic.


    robdarko left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 7:50 AM:

    Pink, in any hue, is universal, D.

    Beautiful girl wearing a cute outfit.


    NWR left a comment on 8/4/2010 at 7:34 AM:

    Like the look. Love the Defender.
