These pieces have been selected with a trained and savvy eye. They're not super trendy. They're not statement pieces. They wouldn't stand out on a rack to anyone other than an expert. But these elegant and timeless numbers will take you through season after season.
I love the way this Fashionisto plays with shades. The tones are not only versatile, but totally transitional for this time of year. They're masculine and sophisticated, too (not like tall, dark and handsome really needs it, right?). His button-up is reminiscent of the '60s Nehru collared shirt without the tacky vibe, and his oxfords could not be more elegant. His jeans are crisp and well kept, and this is the first man I've seen to ever pull off a Long Champ.
So, next time your parents are on you about saving money so that one day you can invest in something like real estate (blah blah blah), just fan out your man-purse or do a little jig in your still-just-as-classic oxford shoes. “But this is an investment, Dad,” you'll say with conviction. He'll look at you with grief and disappointment, shaking his head and wishing you were more like your more practical and less well-dressed sibling. But you won't care. You've got a rocking modern day Nehru collar, darn it. Who needs them?
