Check Out That Jacket + Fall Color Palettes

October 8th, 2011

<< PREV LOOK NEXT LOOK >>

2. Autumn Leaves

I was sketpical about this look at first. The sweater & jeans was the outfit I was wearing throughout the day before we started to shoot, so for efficiency sake I just said f-ck it and threw the jacket on top. It wasn’t until I saw the photo that I noticed the orange gradient in the shades tying everything together. What can I say, sometimes you get lucky – it’s the benefit of having a well curated wardrobe.

Bonus Tip: Browns and oranges work very well together, come in countless shades, and flatter almost any skin type.

Bonus Tip II: Don’t restrict your own wardrobe; a suit jacket is a blazer and a blazer is a suit jacket. (Okay, not technically if you’re a purist, but if the fabric has some texture and pattern to it you’re doing yourself a disservice by not crossing it over).

    You are very right that orange and brown work well together(and they are the traditional colors of Thanksgiving!) because they are related. When you add black or blue to orange, you get brown.

    Your use of patterns is phenomenal…I can’t tell if I like the popped peak lapels or not??? Either you always keep it funky, Dan.

    Cheers!

    SB,

    Every once in a while I’m disappointed with some of your looks – and then you do a post like this where you’re KILLING IT! Keep up the good work and don’t go getting too big for us.

    I love all of the plaid jackets, and the orange pants are so cool! Plus it’s nice to see that white pants can work well in fall too.

    Thanks for all the awesome posts!

    WOW… love the color of the pants on the Autumn Leaves!..

    Great post. Look 3 is favorite. That’s a great grouping of colors. I love windowpane suits/jackets. (I own two: one is subtle on a gray suit, the other is a bit more noticeable on an Italian sports coat.

    Great as always, I like to bring out herringbone in the fall

    The windownpane jackets in looks 2 and 3 are amazing. I love the under-the-collar detail; it really adds some great character to the look and does a wonderful job of tying in some different shades of brown. Your looks continue to inspire me on a daily basis. Thank you for doing what you do.

    P.S. – I’ve been having some trouble finding other blogs that compare to this one for men’s fashion. Any blogs that you try to keep up on that you’d be willing to share?

    Great colors… love the first look

    Did the game go as you predicted? :)

  • Andrew Carlson

    You always wear really awesome window pane blazers and sportcoats. Yours are always bespoke though. Where are some good places where we can find them though? I want one REALLY badly, but can’t seem to find them anywhere.

    • cam

      Brooks Brothers, J Press, Ralph Lauren, Armani, Saks Mens Collection, Michael Kors, Etro, Hickey Freeman, Jos. A Bank, eBay, Thrift Stores, and on and on….you really can’t find one anywhere??? hmmm….

    Look #1 is great. I really don’t think white jeans are for summer only.

  • jim

    What’s the style name of the bass loafers?

  • Every Man’s Closet

    Thank you for wearing white after labor day. Look 3 is hot and I love a popped suit collar with the addition of a gauzey thin scarf casually thrown in the mix. Great post!
