    Dress Code  

    Photographed in New York, NY

    Noteworthy: layering doesn't always have to start with the lightest layer. Here, a Shetland under a knit rugby jersey works just as well.

    Rig:
    • Ebbets Field flannel cap
    • Randolph Engineering aviators
    • Wallace & Barnes Shetland sweater
    • Boast rugby
    Arc'teryx down jacket
    • vintage Omega Seamaster
    • Ralph Lauren grosgrain D-ring belt
    • Rugby denim
    New Balance 710 hiker boot

    How’s the fit if you don’t plan on wearing it as an undershirt, but more like a normal sweater?

    @Palmer Woodrow—The Wallace & Barnes shetlands run big. I’m wearing a small. Don’t even bother with the original J.Press Shaggy Dog shetlands…even in a small, I’m swimming in one. I have yet to try on a York St. shetland but I imagine the fit would be much slimmer.


    Palmer Woodrow left a comment on 1/26/2014 at 8:22 PM:

    How does the W&B shetland fit compare to J. Press (or York St.)?

    @Laurel—I’m wearing an undershirt…itch-free.


    Laurel left a comment on 1/23/2014 at 12:50 PM:

    Didn’t that itch?

    @TopShelfTags—Rugby is the brand.


    TopShelfTags left a comment on 1/22/2014 at 4:48 PM:

    are Rugby jeans a brand or a style/cut?

    Fred, what exactly are you wearing on your right hand? Can we get a close up/details on the ring?

    Love love those boots!

    Fred, this is the perfect idea of casual layering. Love the idea of mixing up the usual. The denim draws the eye and adds balance. Love the NB hikers. Well done sir!

    I am considering Randolph for my next purchase of sunglasses? Are yours the bayonet temple? I will not be able to try them on before I purchase,  and I am wondering if they are comfortable.

    This is on par, well done.

    High heels are a stylish woman’s best friend! This one pulls them off well, and adds a fun surprise to the outfit. Nice shot!

  • Work Up a Sweat

    Dress Code  

    Photographed in Brooklyn, NY

    Noteworthy: effective layering is about more than just warmth—keep it interesting by mixing up fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns. Fleece pants outside the house are easily worn when cut to sit closer to your body. Ribbed cuffs at the ankles are ideal.

    Rig:
    Ebbets Field Flannels Brooklyn Eagles ball cap
    • Randolph Engineering aviators
    Gloverall mid length duffle coat
    • Boast warm-up jacket
    • Ralph Lauren flannel
    • Ralph Lauren cotton cricket sweater
    • Saturdays NYC fleece pant
    • Vintage Susan Bennis Warren Edwards lizard tassel loafers

    If loafers are for loafing, I wonder what that says about my blucher moccasins.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 5:37 PM:

    @Chenners—It was Glenn O’Brien who said, “Loafers are for loafing. And tasseled loafers are for class-conscious loafers.”


    Chenners left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 5:33 PM:

    Tassel loafers with sweatpants? Didn’t someone once say “form follows function, everything else is just trying too hard”?


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 4:34 PM:

    @Brock—About 40 degrees.


    Brock left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 4:32 PM:

    Looking good! How cold is it up there, though? I’d be sweating like crazy with all those layers, even in 40 degree weather. (If that’s the point, fair enough.)


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 3:39 PM:

    @Roger C. Russell II—This particular coat is their mid length Monty. I picked this up brand new on eBay. I believe the previous owner bought it from England.


    Roger C. Russell II left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 3:33 PM:

    I really like the Gloverall. Is that particular coat their original military version. I know that Montgomery wore one that color. Also, did you get the coat in the United States?


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 3:20 PM:

    @JHB—Why not worn under the flannel? Just because an item has a zipper does not necessarily mean it has to be worn as outerwear. It’s ok to wear your clothes with a little…what’s the word…imagination.


    JHB left a comment on 11/6/2013 at 3:17 PM:

    Why is the warm up jacket worn under the flannel?  The look seems to lack function covering up the zipper on the jacket in such a way.
