    Noteworthy: I've been spending the week up in Rhode Island with my good friend Kiel James Patrick. Not only is his factory an interesting blend of Peter Pan, The Goonies, and Moonrise Kingdom, but everyone walks into work each day with these beautiful Nordic sweaters.

    I am not a preppy person, per se. So, it’s interesting I guess that I love your blog! I have really been into the fair isle sweaters this year though, and I got my first pair of Bean boots for Christmas! Yay!

    I happened to be in the Elizabeth McKay store a day or two after this shoot.  I was up in NY for work and stopped by E. McKay to get my wife a Christmas gift.  I saw this post and picked up these Diana Kelly shoes for her too.  She loved both which made me look good.  Its funny how buying women’s clothes can make me “look” better (when I get it right) then anything men’s fashion has to offer…

    Hi Fred, what do you make of the Rugby store closing. I live in the UK and our one only opened about 18 months ago . It really is a shame as they have such great stuff in there!


    George left a comment on 12/13/2012 at 8:53 PM:

    What? No points given for the boots? I would’ve.

  • Softening the Pea Coat

    Style  

    I’ve long preferred the look of women in menswear. It’s down-to-earth and yet still beautiful. While some pieces translate literally, others often require a more feminine touch. The military styling and rugged undertones of the classic pea coat can feel too masculine for women despite often being cut in a cropped silhouette. Simply swapping the traditional metal anchor buttons for knotted leather buttons like my girlfriend did here softens it altogether...even when you are popping that generous collar.

    If you are looking at the buttons, you are missing it.  Beautiful woman.

    I’ve seen a few posts on switching out the plastic buttons for shiny/brass ones. Too flashy or delightfully different?


    Elizabeth V. left a comment on 12/12/2012 at 11:51 AM:

    I love that! Swapping out those buttons is a great idea.

    I have one with a fur collar and it gives it a softer look… I love pea coats! Www.pinkjulepabroad.com
