Few guys really wear suits with ease, Patrick’s one of them. Style for days. Check the unique Sid Mashburn double-sided belt and vintage YSL raw silk tie that works perfectly with the rest of his look. Well done, very well done.
These days I’m wearing boots more often than dress shoes or sneakers. Not just with jeans or chinos, either. No, I prefer to wear these hiking boots with heavier wool suits in the winter. They’re taking a good beating and will get a polish soon, but to me they look better with a few nicks and scuffs than they do all cleaned up.
Late nights and good windows. December is full of ’em. Heavier colors seem to be dominating the scene, with some of the best displays coming from classics like Bergdorf Goodman and Ralph Lauren.

The archives of Ralph Lauren are certainly dense. While I’ve spent plenty of time combing through them, it’s fair to say I’ve only scratched the surface. Of all the various RL looks that have passed by my eyes over the years, there’s one that has stuck with me above all the rest. Specifically, it was a Ralph Lauren Purple Label look from the Fall/Winter 2006 collection. I remember a few RL designers mentioning how much Ralph loved this collection personally, and looking at the full runway show it’s easy to see why. It was a more directional collection than we’ve seen in recent years, which leaves me wishing they would venture out a bit more–especially with Purple Label.
I’ve been wearing Boast as long as I’ve been playing squash. I’ve been playing squash as long as I can remember. Glad to see they’re expanding.
West African prints and tailored clothing. Wale did it. Love seeing personal details that are totally original, and he certainly nails that here. Don’t miss those barchetta patch pockets, either. Bringing together inspiration from Neapolitan tailoring with Nigerian heritage. Too cool.
