WIWT - December 5, 2012

I really despise orange and blue as a color combination, but the muted orange of this jacket and the navy blue of the trousers really appeal to me.

Matching differently colored identical patterns in an outfit can be tricky, but I think the orange and navy herringbones of the jacket and pants work perfectly here. The difference in material and scale make that possible. These pants that I snagged from Club Monaco are great, but I still need to get them hemmed. I also just got this silk knit in the mail from Pelliano, and it’s perfect to pair with a plain white shirt. 

Full body shot here.

WIWT- November 12, 2012

It’s a bold thing to say, but this is may favorite blazer that I own. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ve probably seen it once or twice. Everything about it is just perfect, the color, the tweed, the patches, and especially the shoulder. If I could imitate this shoulder in every blazer I buy for the rest of my life, I would. On another note, I’m going to start playing off of this color scheme (Orange, purple, green) a lot more. I really like the way it looked. Photos by the lovely Amy Shusta.

WIWT - This is a vintage Paul Stuart blazer made by Southwick. It is made from some of the most beautiful tweed I have ever seen, an orange/brown and cream herringbone. The blazer features leather buttons (in perfect condition), perfect suede elbow patches, and a nice brown lapel padding. The shoulders fit perfectly, as does the drape on the back (despite what you see being pulled by my bag), and the length is perfect too. The lapels are bit bigger than lapels I normally wear, but they’re perfect for flipping and keeping warm. 

Another thing I wanted to touch on is the pocket square. You can’t clearly see it in the pictures, but it’s that unfinished Marinella silk I snagged from eBay. Green and blue flowers, bordered by paisley. This post is really about my blazer. Sure there are other aspects of the kit, but when I say this is one of the most incredible jackets I have ever seen, I am not exaggerating. I had entirely too much fun shooting today with Amy. This was a great time.

WIWT - Here’s that Paul Stuart herringbone tweed blazer I’ve been talking about. The lapels are pretty big, but they’re perfect for flipping. It’s also warm as hell. Shawl collar sweater and OCBD beneath it.

As promised, here are some pictures of the jacket i snagged today. The lighting/shitty iPhone pictures don’t do the color of the tweed justice, but in real life, it’s a bit more on the orange side. It’s a very unique color. I found this vintage Southwick/Paul Stuart jacket on the racks at a shop that the brotha Big Rube showed me today. It was my first time in, and I scored big. This jacket is amazing. It’s quarter-lined, with leather buttons, suede elbow patches, flap pockets, and a dark brown lapel lining. It’s also in amazing condition. The best part was that I only payed thirteen bucks for it. I’m not a big vintage/thrift shopper, but when you see something like this, it’s impossible to pass up.
