Two words: Cargo. Pants.

But I liked it too.

Rained here two nights in a row and then, two days in a row, the wind blew the rain away. Walking home from the market earlier today with my hair, like the answer, blowing in the wind, which made me realize that I need a haircut.  

Haspel coat, Land's End yellow OCBD shirt, Leatherrman belt, frayed Orvis twill trousers, white socks, Bass saddle shoes, and a Barnes & Noble tote bag with the original M. and E. Detmold cover art from Kipling's "The Jungle Book" on it.  (I would have preferred the cover art from KIpling's "The Drums Of The Fore And Aft" but that wasn't available.)  

For those who might be wondering, in Los Angeles you have to take your own bag to the market or pay ten cents for a paper bag.  Plastic bags are illegal.


As you can see the cover of "The Drums Of The Fore And Aft" is much better than the cover of "The Jungle Book".  (It's also a better story.)

Sunny and pretty chilly today (don't know what the hell happens to my computer lately that all the pictures look like crap):

@FrankCowperwood, you show a great variety in your fits and yet they all seem comfortable and natural - and not at all costumey. At least to me. biggrin.gif

It's been really inspirational on a lot of levels, but especially so as I've turned a corner on expanding out some of the proportions in my stuff. Maybe some of it is the inevitable pendulum away from slim-fit, and there's the coming to terms with what you can and can't pull off given your own shape and size, but it helps a lot to see such examples.

Anyway, just a quick thanks for posting here. cheers.gif

Thank you! Those are very kind words. There's a lot of great inspiration around here and I'm happy to be part of it.

For the sake of conversation, the jacket was too streetwear and denim for me. I think it fits Iso's vibe, and looks like a standout piece, but I prefer the more subdued look. Maybe if it was swaped out with an M43. Just my personal preference, though.

Going to be a gorgeous day. Sport coat is made of this thick, plush cotton twill. It's almost like moleskin except for the heavy twill line. Really nice.

Who is the maker of the green rain coat?

@fairlynerdy like the whole assemble. Seems like you are growing out that jacket on your shoulders. I don't complaint, I like to wear my stuff in the tighter end as well... I have grown quite a bit myself and can't change a whole wardrobe over night.... gym people problems I guess :P

 

It is weird because the closer we get to spring the colder the weather is getting... we've had an extremely unusual winter (no cold) and now is getting colder and colder at night and early morning and then very mild temperatures during the day (the result,  a lot of fog in the early mornings and cold as hell, at least for what we are used to here). I put on my loafers this morning and well... I think I am going back to boots again hahaha:
