It's All Good

This month I'm seeing more and more Spring offerings - well I guess that just natural since most have been stuck in the doldrums of winter and all around yuckie weather.  We're all chomping at the sartorial bit to move into lighter, more comfortable gear either for work or for pleasure.

I keep thinking, the summer sun and a balmy weather lends itself to parties and carefree gatherings all of which should have us dressed to the 9s!

Here's a preview

From Brooks Brothers

From Hackett

From RL (and a favorite by this blogger)

Ethan Desu has my vote for best men's fashion photographer on his continent, or any other !

And for the most smokin' kit in the Continental U. S.

Watch Bands

Thanks to our blog bud JRS over at Red Clay Soul, I was able to snag some great looking watch bands on the cheap at American Eagle Outfitters.  The last time I bought one was last summer at J. Press and I paid $25 for it (from Smart Turnout).  But these were $3.95 each.  I paid $25 for 8 of them (one rang up at $1.95).   I think they're pretty cool.  They add color and contrast to your wrist and whatever shirt and jacket you're wearing.

After a few months of wearing a favorite, I find I need to wash it.  I put the band in a plastic container, add warmish/hot water and a couple of drops of laundry detergent, make a few suds and let it sit for a day, then let it air dry on a towel somewhere.

Would you look at those gas prices!!!  We really need to get back to something reasonable.  This whole Libya things has got the oil and gas biz upside down.

The Indigo Linen Jacket

A few days ago I mentioned I picked up a linen Flusser jacket at Stein Mart.  Mind you this isn't the custom-made job that smacks of hundreds of dinero - it's a nice looking jacket that I paired up with a blue gingham dress shirt, and yellow silk tie.  I've been looking for a nice yellow silk knit, but haven't spied one yet.

Anywhooo - here's the kit.  What you don't see are the military tan Hilfiger dress slacks, Cole Haan kilty tassel moccasins.

Spring is coming soon ---

Really it is.  And some of the offerings and images make me yern for spring parties, cocktails with nice people in the spring air.

Hope you get the feeling too.

These Brooks Brothers for spring have nice soft colors and patterns but there's the pizzaz that makes them appealing:

These Brooks Brother pocket square look pretty cool.  I like the casualness of them.

I like this chino jacket (which I believe is from Ethan Desu) - I saw one the other day on sale, nearly pounced until I noticed it was the wrong size.  That coffee/black knit tie is classy!
