Casual Weekend

I needed to get away, so The Boss and I headed out to San Francisco.  It was nice weather for The City, but still chilly.  I was loving my new Fair Isle scarf, so I pulled the outfit together around it.  Usually I like to pop color over the drab tones of winter, but the brown on brown worked.  The key is to use textures.  You want to avoid flat browns.

This guy was asking me if I was the guy from "City of Gentlemen."  I replied, "Well yes, I am."


Like I said earlier, the best way to break up dull 
tones is to mix in textures.  
Mixed a heavy wool coat with leather elbow 
patches with fine cord pants.


To tie the rugged look together, I chose a weathered chukka boot.

One of my go to items for a Gentlemen is the coat jacket wallet, 
also known as a long wallet.  Nothing is worse than a giant 
bulge in your pant pocket.  I did break the browns with a plaid
shirt and floral pocket square.
