Old Man: Fall

This is one of my favorite posts on any clothing forum, anywhere. Made by wnh, who isn't around much anymore. Anyways, check it out and get psyched for fall.

Young Man: Knit Ties

I love knit ties, but only have one: a navy wool knit tie that sees a lot of action. I would like some new ones, but most seem pricey, especially the J Press ones. But I found some sweet ones at The Tie Bar. Here are my favorites.

(the best part is the $15 price tag)

Check them out.

Old Man: Beefrolls

I have very little opinion in the debate between beefroll pennies and full-strap pennies. Lots of guys have opinions. I don't really care. I only have two pairs of pennies and both are full strap. But I would wear these in a heartbeat.

(if they weren't $250)

Old Man: Rainy Sunday Style

Supposed to rain all day today in Clemson. I don't mind if that means it will start to cool down here finally. Anyways, here was the outfit for today.

BB blazer, Bass shirt, RRL pants, Chippewa boots, Hanauer bow (four different old men complimented me on this today; not sure what that means), and that ever popular raincoat.

Bow close-up.

In other news, see this post for one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read on any forum (and I've read plenty of forums in my time). See this post of mine for a very long-winded post that only marginally deals with this issue. Also see some of my posts in that thread.

Young Man: Updated Traditional 3

About a year ago I did some posts on updated traditional styles. Here's another go.

Corbin jacket, BB shirt, LE knit tie, Epaulet rivet chinos, Florsheim longwings.

Probably too updated for some. Maybe not enough for others. I like it though.

Old Man: Selling

This afternoon I had the distinct pleasure of selling (or trying to sell) handmade bowties from The Cordial Churchman at the Indie Craft Parade in Greenville, South Carolina. Ellie and Andy Stager (the masterminds behind TCC) are really great people and my wife and I were finally able to meet them. We had a great time. My wife and I manned the booth for a few hours while the Stagers were out and about. And even though I didn't sell anything, they were gracious enough to give me a free bowtie. I picked the Calvin wool in a batwing shape (my favorite bow shape). Here are some pictures of the event.

Manning the booth in a Brooks shirt and blazer, Levi's white jeans (breaking the rules, I know), AE loafers, and the aforementioned TCC bow.

Andy and I both showed up in Brooks blazers.

We also met up with Cardinals5, a regular poster on AAAT and The Curriculum.

And here is a close-up of the new bow:

A great time was had by all. Check out The Cordial Churchman if you're on the lookout for a handmade bowtie, necktie, or patch scarf.
