    @R.W. Kirk & MK—The socks and scarf are Ralph Lauren.

    Nice scarf! Where did you get it?

    Love the socks, so I suppose that breaking the trousers on the shoe would not show them off. I am generally not a fan of short inseams, but you’ve pulled this look off rather well!

    GREAT look FEC


    MGM left a comment on 1/28/2013 at 6:45 PM:

    FEC—Ha!  Well put, my friend.  Let’s just say that I like both the “unabashedly” preppy look and the more business professional look.  (:

    Where are the socks from? Good wool stockings are hard to find these days.

    Nice bro! Side note: is there a new playlist a brewing?

    @MGM—Nothing is ever enough.


    MGM left a comment on 1/28/2013 at 4:12 PM:

    Very well done, FEC.  This is a solid, professional look.  However, it is not very “unabashedly” preppy.  (:

    Surprisingly reserved. Well done.

    I think Nick Hilton can use a new F . E Castleberry photoshoot to give their site some spice. It looks very dull compared to the F/W ‘10 and ‘11 shoots.

    As always, splendid photo!

    I’ve always been curious as the fashion vs. function element to a lot of the clothing that is detailed here.  For example, a shooting patch on a vest in the middle of NYC.


    Andrew left a comment on 1/23/2013 at 12:49 PM:

    Why is the sock/no sock question such a big deal? It’s clearly an issue of preference. If the look works and the person likes the breeze on their ankles, let it be.


    MGM left a comment on 1/21/2013 at 9:59 PM:

    FEC makes a good point—women do indeed go sockless all the time; still, though, I must admit that my eyes were also immediately directed at the ankles, and I was rather surprised that this fine gentleman did not have on any socks, especially considering all the layers he has on.  I think that the no sock look works extremely well with a polo and a pair of summer white slacks.  But I question whether it is appropriate with this winter look.

    Also, I like the slim vest inside the sportcoat instead of wearing the vest over the sportcoat. Solid look overall.


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 1/21/2013 at 8:12 PM:

    @Michael—He is without socks, however, I imagine he’s warm enough with the layers he has on. And women go sockless all the time in winter, do they not? Is the issue really about warmth?


    Michael left a comment on 1/21/2013 at 8:08 PM:

    Is he going sockless? Even on a mild winter day, I still think socks (at least thin ones) are mandatory for me.

    The top looks great. The blazer/vest combination works well.

    Looking good, Nascone.  I’m more a fan of the traditional, knee-length duffel but that length looks good on you.

    @Nice-T Surprisingly, I think the coat is from American Eagle


    Nice-T left a comment on 1/17/2013 at 10:09 PM:

    Where can I get a coat like that? Doesn’t look like it’s made by Gloverall.


    Corey left a comment on 1/17/2013 at 4:43 PM:

    I really like the crew neck/necktie combination. I wear it often because it gives me a chance to be casual with the sweater but dress it up with the color of a repp tie and oxford shirt.
    I really dig the duffle coat…loks very warm!


    Clyde left a comment on 1/17/2013 at 2:49 PM:

    Love the LL Bean camp mocs.  One does not see them often enough.  A great casual footwear option.

    @MGM—Thank you sir. My scarf is actually Rugby from about three years ago.


    Saturdays left a comment on 1/15/2013 at 11:03 AM:

    Love that shirt, wearing it right now. I hope more and more brands go the tab collar route, or at least give the option amongst their selection.


    MGM left a comment on 1/14/2013 at 3:49 PM:

    Great tie.  My guess would be that it is Polo Ralph Lauren.  Also, I am almost certain the scarf is by Gap.  I have the same scarf in blue/black motif.

    @Lamas, I believe you will find that the venerable pattern of Lady Margaret Hall College at Norham Gardens, University of Oxford, England. A classic!

    what school scarf is that?

    Is that the cat from perfectlyaskew.tumblr.com?

    He looks great! Nothing matches too well, and the wavy blond hair, classic glasses, and striped watch band help complete the ensemble.


    MGM left a comment on 1/11/2013 at 8:38 AM:

    I like the look.  The scarf, university/pea coat, fair isle sweater, and desert boots are items that every person should have in their closet.  The bag is also very cool.
