There are a few blogs that I read that are aimed more towards the sartorial splendors of being a well-dressed man, mainly the Mid-Atlantic/New England version, with a bent towards the classic/prep look. Each of these blogs also touches on different topics, so they're fun to read for that.
My nephew is graduating from prep school next week and my sister had a party on the porch to celebrate. He and his best friend have been through 12 years of school side-by-side, and their mothers have been best friends since their school years, as well.
One of the guests, and a parent of another graduate, caught my eye. He was dressed perfectly for a late spring, late afternoon party on the porch. He was wearing a great blue and white striped shirt, a pair of white linen Bermuda-length shorts and, best of all, a gorgeous pair of white bucks!
I asked if I could take his picture and told him why, and we had a brief conversation about how easy it is to dress a little better than to constantly wear jeans and a t-shirt. He told me about the seersucker suit he'd start wearing this week and how he'd looked for the white bucks before finding them at an end-of-season sale and buying a pair for him and a pair for his son. It was such fun to talk to someone who really understands the art of dressing well.
The roses are from my sister's garden. I love love love the pale pink!
