3. Weekend Stroll

Keep it simple on the weekend and add some small old school touches like a textured jacket (hopsack is like tweed for the spring/summer), vintage braces and saddle shoes.

The best part is, the outfit gets even better when the rain hits.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

Yours in style,

    Great post, and i like the look with the braces a lot; very chill and yet classy. Funny, cos i’m also planning to do a post on umbrellas on my blog in the future. Thanks for the added inspiration.

    I don’t understand how vintage braces are “keeping it simple.” IMO, if you have belt loops, use them.

      Thanks for reading and sharing your opinion Sidd.

        Beltless look creates a fine illusion for your torso providing a slim silhouette for the whole outfit while belt adds a little bulk in to it.

        The vintage braces is another way of “paying attention to the details” & it is much understandable for those who have style of their own.

    We had snow on Friday.

    Love the saddle shoes. I wore them in high school with argyle socks that my mother had knit for my father.

    Great umbrella. My sunglasses have been replaced with an umbrella since relocating to the pacific NW and I can attest to the importance of having an umbrella that doesn’t breakdown after a month of use. I opted for something completely lacking in style – black, collapse-able – but it was a function choice, it fits in my satchel. I’m going with some color when it comes time to replace it.

    Great timely post. I once heard someone say that theres no such thing as “bad weather”. U only think of it as bad if ur not prepared for it.

    Nice post as always Dan. Love the old school touches in #3.

    When you go bespoke shirting, is there a specific collar width measurement or certain range you tend to always come back to? Or perhaps do you have a certain formula you’ve worked out depending on accompanying tie/suit lapel options?

    In Romania is still raining like hell and us much us I like rain..now for the first time, I hate it. Maybe it.s just my mood. The colors of the umbrella fits very well with all the outfits (the business casual rocks). I always had a thing for white umbrellas. Good quote from your basketball coach, true.
