Fall Looks: Setting the Bar
[Pictured: "On the Street....Perfect RL, NYC". Courtsey of Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist.]
The best look I have seen this fall comes from a street shot done by the great Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist (who partly inspired this very blog's name). This gentleman is doing exactly what I am recommending this fall (see: two posts ago)...blending both the traditionally refined and the classically rugged. Here we've got wingtips, a spread collar button down, a tweed vest, chinos, and a tie complete with tie bar topped off with a great military fatigue jacket. What a great example of a wonderful, yet average fall outfit taken to the next level with the inclusion of an unexpected element. This outfit says so many things, but all I can say is "wow". This, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect outfit, and THE perfect fall look as far as Sartorially Inclined is concerned. Finding the right balance somewhere in-between is no easy task, but when done right the juxtaposition of refined and rugged brings it all together. Talk about setting the bar high...
