• Wardrobe X

    Style | Dress Code  

    Since moving to New York a couple of months ago, imagine my disappointment of no longer enjoying the luxury of an in-home photography studio. Photographing layouts of complete outfits requires the kind of real estate typically reserved for a Manhattan bedroom—sans furniture. However, the cramped quarters compel you, and every other New Yorker, to get creative. While these vignettes are not designed to showcase an entire outfit for any given day, they capture the spirit of it through carefully considered details and accessories.

    I liked your Seamaster so much, I picked one up. Understated, amazing, and relatively inexpensive.  Prep with Sean Connery as Bond thrown in.  The LL Bean hamilton is also one my favorites since college.

    +1 on the Hamilton Khaki suggestion. I got one and love mine.

    Well said, PSP.  My thoughts exactly.  You should also check out Seiko dive watches.  They are very affordable, keep decent time, and are indestructible.

    Greeneggsandkus, Try a Hamilton Kacki or Vintage Omega Seamaster, about 100 sold last year at auction for aprox $300.  PSP

    What is a good preepy watch at a modest price?

    Also, hats off to Ralph Lauren and Rugby.  They are one of few retailers that ship to US Servicemen and Women in a combat zone.  They sent new a wallet in Iraq, in about a week.  Really brightened my day.

    Superb watch.  Vintage is truly green. No packaging and lasts a lifetime.

    Beautiful shots, Fred. It looks like you’re getting along fine in NYC. What did you use to make the collage? I like the grid layout.

    thenorthfaceのスローガンのいうように、探求はいつまでも停止しません。私達は人生の終わるまで、きっと私達を継ぎ、また探求し続ける人があるでしょう。人生の本当の意味は何のために生きていますか。後悔しないように生きていきます。私はそう思います。

    Thumbs up for the clothing.

    That must have been quite the awesome apartment warming party this was worn to. Just a guess. The bratwurst were probably delicious as well.

    Have always loved your playlists but I just plain refuse to join Facebook, which Spotify seems to demand.


    Kate left a comment on 6/1/2012 at 8:55 PM:

    Wish the playlist was consistently downloadable…spoitify doesn’t work up here in Canada. I got a zip of April just fine but it doesn’t look like there is one for may.
