    Carly looks great here. Any particular reason you seem to keep featuring past guests as of late?

    Noteworthy: dressed for the oddly brisk New York spring (wool blazer, layers) while hinting at the season with pops of color in his socks, cardigan, and tie.

    Noteworthy: navy blue blazer, spring Fair Isle sweater, Weejuns.

    Rebecca is the quintessential example of a very petite (4'10") young woman who rarely finds clothes her size off the rack. She frequents the boys and petite departments with much success. Her real secret though? She has her tailor on "favorites" in her iPhone.

    She absolutely looks like the kind of girl who blew me off in High School/College/office party….same “are you kidding me?” look when I asked for the time.

    @r.S. The pants in the photo are actually from crewcuts. I buy a lot of girls and boys jeans/pants, but women’s joes and j.brand usually run small enough in a 24. And as F.E. mentioned, my tailor and I are quite close, as I often have to get even the children’s pants hemmed.

    I love this shot, you really have a way with portraits I don’t know how you do it!
    Sidenote—I had to do a double take, she looks so much like me and is the same height as me, insane! I am very curious as to where she gets her jeans/pants from!

    Badass pose like she doesn’t take any shit from anyone. Please consider featuring more of her in upcoming posts.

    Not to mention that she’s ridiculously cute. Bryant Park?

    Rebecca…thank you.  I actually prefer your photo.

    Happy to see that’s mostly Brooks Brothers. Also, I get that look quite often…

    @Rebecca - Beautiful smile, but totally bad ass expression in Fred’s shot!


    Rebecca left a comment on 3/28/2013 at 7:54 AM:

    @SPQR - here’s a photo of the outfit with a smile, although not shot by the great F.E.—http://instagram.com/p/XVHN4dmcdq/ . Sans blazer.


    SPQR left a comment on 3/28/2013 at 7:44 AM:

    A smile would have been the perfect complement to this outfit.

    Kick off the comments by using the stationery below to pen your thoughts.

  • American Fashion Menswear

     

    It has been said that almost all of menswear has been mined from the sartorial-rich soil of war and sport. American Fashion Menswear, an Assouline book by Robert E. Bryan, vividly illustrates this claim. It is the latest addition to my coffee table. The book chronicles the past century of men’s style by way of a septenary arrangement: Utility, the Ivy Road, Sportswear, the American Suit, the Dandy, Hollywood, and Music. Bryan aims to prove that American men’s wear is more influential and significant than American women’s wear. “The things the U.S. is known for in fashion are men’s—jeans, Western gear, work wear, great outdoors clothing. Ivy League style is essentially about men, and rock style revolves around men, too,” Bryan notes. Pick up your own copy but ditch the dust jacket—the sartorial-rich turf of football is a much more effective conversation starter.

    Another area where we are pretty good is military uniforms.  FYI Brooks Brothers is once again making Navy uniforms.
