there’s no telling how many times this photo will get reblogged today from the sartorialist. and why shouldn’t it? it’s a perfect photo. scott titles his post “time to transition, light jackets and long legs.” not only do i love fall weather, but i love how women dress in the fall. let the transition begin.
do yourself a favor this morning and check out unbashedly prep’s new post called black ivy. i’m usually on the fence about most things on u.p. i respect fred’s hustle but some people he captures look like they’re trying too hard. with that said he hits a home run with black ivy. great stlye. great pics. great work.
i’m noticing more and more chatter about fair isle sweaters for f/w 2010. some popped up last year on females e.g. rhianna and victoria beckham but now most of the blogs i’m hip to are mentioning them for men. the sweater above is from j. crew’s website (obviously). i wish i could get behind this trend, but i’m pretty sure i’d look like kevin mccallister from home alone if i attempted to pull it off. 10 engines has a nice little writeup on the history of these sweaters. be weary of your friends who claim they pulled it out of their parents closet who got their sweaters in scotland. bs.
fall trend grade: C+ (not right for me but you might look cool)
a couple of weeks ago i commented that i really liked gant rugger’s baseball jacket for the fall. the only thing preventing me from purchasing it is finding it. i don’t think it’s sold online (i could be wrong) and i’m not planning on going to new york quick enough to snag one before they’re all gone. thanks to sartorially inclined i have found another jacket i like just as much. it’s made by unionmade and i can go ahead and purchase online. problem solved.
