    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.

    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.

    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.

    @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

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    @James: I’d put even money on it, myself: but who can blame them for taking from the best?

    I’ll miss ‘em when they’re gone- the thieving bastards. :)

    Alright Richard!!!! Looking Great as always!!

    @Steve, betcha that scarf is from “Rugby”.....

    @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?


    LDC left a comment on 1/11/2013 at 2:11 PM:

    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.

    @John E.—Iconic, certainly. The view just isn’t as idyllic.


    John E. left a comment on 1/9/2013 at 11:55 AM:

    The rink at Rockefeller Center is perhaps equally iconic. At any rate, I agree, great look!


    MGM left a comment on 1/8/2013 at 7:50 AM:

    Very chic.  You can wear anything you want and still look good just by standing next to someone like this.
