This time of year our weekend wardrobe consists mostly of jeans, long sleeve t-shirts, and a ball cap. While we have a few hats that will always remain in the rotation, we’re always on the lookout for something new to mix in, and this year it looks like the new addition will come from Over Under. Their new corduroy hats are simply fantastic.
As the seersucker and linen get put away for the year, we’re finding ourselves really looking forward to going all in on plaid this Fall. There are a few shirts that we’ve been itching to wear for a few weeks now, and a couple of others that we’ll be adding to the rotation very very soon. One of which is the just released Eastman from Mizzen+Main.
Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and splurge on something. We’d recommend said purchases be few and far between if you’re on a budget, and if you do pull the trigger on something pricey, make sure that it’s something that you can wear regularly for years to come. Our next splurge purchase is going to be the Jameson Matte Alligator Belt from our friends at Martin Dingman.
Lately we’ve been doing our best to expand our horizons to include classic pieces that we’ve never had in our wardrobe for one reason or another. One of the pieces we’ve been on the hunt for is a denim shirt. Seriously. While the fear of a Canadian tuxedo is still very real, we’ve thought for quite some time that a ‘just right’ denim shirt could be a great addition to the lineup. The Latrobe from Hugh & Crye might just be exactly what we’ve been looking for.
Before we know it we’re actually going to have to start wearing socks again. Other than days that required suits, we could probably count on one hand how many times we’ve worn a pair in the last three months on one hand. One pair that we’ll definitely have in the rotation this year comes from J. McLaughlin. How could you not love their Bow Tie socks?
This time of year we find ourselves perusing the L.L. Bean catalog over and over. It just feels like the right thing to do as the leaves begin to change, and temperatures start to fall. If you need a new pair or two of casual pants this season, we’d highly recommend taking a look at their Signature Washed Canvas Cloth pants.
It takes a lot for a simple logo polo to catch our attention these days, but one did just that a few months back. The logo was a golf cart with a surf board on top, and as soon as we saw it we knew we’d have to do some research. Turns out that the logo is from a young brand down in the Carolinas called Bald Head Blues. Take a look at their East Beach Polo.
This weekend we got a small taste of Fall here in Annapolis. Though temperatures will once again be in the 80s this week, we were pleased to see the mercury finally drop below 60 for the first time in what feels like forever. There’s just something about crisp evening air that can’t be beat. If you agree, you’re probably going to want to pick up a Kodiak Pullover from Buffalo Jackson ASAP.
