In another thread I posted this picture of Neil Young. "j" identified the boots as Red Wing 877.


The next installment is this photo of James Taylor from his 1971 album "Mud Slide Slim". Chambray work shirt (a bit big, he was a skinny dude), wool pants, and check out the suspenders. Remember he is from North Carolina.



Any others?

I guess my point is many of these '70's choices are much more timeless than anything in the '80s (or anything by Bowie...or Elvis for that matter). Maybe J. Crew will copy JT's suspenders for their Spring '09 collection.
