Late Summer, 2011

It appears Blogger has implemented a picture viewer (kind of like Facebook) when you click on the pictures. Drag and drop the photo to your address bar to see it upclose.

July 4th celebrations
You may not be able to tell here, but this outfit is subtly patriotic. The polo is a dark red/burgundy shade, the seersucker shorts are blue and white, and my Volunteer Traditions belt sums it all together. Originally was going to wear an OCBD, but it was an extremely humid afternoon where I watched the events and fireworks.

J Crew seersucker shorts
Volunteer Traditions belt (made by Leatherman Ltd.)
Sperry boat shoes
Seiko 5 watch

Casual Outing
Brooks Brothers OCBD
Land's End shorts
Allen Edmonds Winthrop driving loafers
Belted Cow belt

The belt reads like a movie film strip as the lacrosse player takes a shot. Takes me back to my playing days.

Beach Vacation
Yet another Fun Shirt...for something I don't wear often, I obviously have a problem. Usually an OCBD should be tucked in, but I was going for a relaxed vibe with this as I walked down the boardwalk. Colors add to the festivity.

School Convocation

Decided to go all out this year with my most trad attire to-date; everything I am wearing is a culmination of trad lore. Yeah, I just e-gasmed.

The details


1) ** denotes a joke
2) Noticed I've been collecting a lot of Brooks Brothers. This too, is a product of my trad-daddy obsession.


  1. I dig that lax belt...where did you get it?

  2. I picked up the belt from a general gifts store/site based in Portland, ME called A&L Home, but the belt is made by another Maine company called The Belted Cow Co.

  3. Great site. As a college student trying to build a legit wardrobe, this was a great find. Saw your guide initially on AskAndy & separately came across the blog a few days later & will follower from now on.

  4. Very sharp combinations. Like the green motif belt with seersucker.
