Back to basics

October 3, 2012

From the earliest beatniks to Andy Warhol and James Bond….nothing worked  a guy’s wardrobe like a basic black turtleneck. As things cool down we start thinking about layering pieces that can keep us comfortable from a simple crisp chill in the air to full throttle COLD.  Layered under a suit, paired with a pair of dress slacks or topping off your most favored pair of jeans this stylish workhorse is always a great choice…chic, modern and even with jeans, never under dressed. While the luxury of a cashmere turtleneck is hard to beat, I find it too hot to wear indoors most days. My choice is always fine gauge Merino wool. It’s refined polished appearance and weight will keep you looking simplequietmodern until the warmest days next spring. Keep your pairings tonal…in black, dark charcoal and darkest navy, and you can’t miss being the best turned-out guy in the room.

    OMG! There is that handsome man we were all in love with back at French’s all too many years ago! I hope you’re well.
