They are very versatile boots as well. While not a dress boot, they have the ability to move from a casual office setting to the bar with friends easily. I have worn them to work with outfits almost identical to the one above but with chinos rather than jeans. They also look great with flannel trousers in cooler temperatures. For those looking to be a bit bolder sartorially, they would look great accompanying a well tailored tweed suit with a larger cuff (1.5-2 inches) and an oxford or flannel button down for a tailored but at the same time rugged casual suit look. They do run a bit large. I recommend sizing down at least a half size if you plan on wearing them with anything other than very thick wool socks. They come in brown (shown above), black, rust, and new to this season tan. 1000 Mile Boots can be found in Neiman Marcus as well as numerous stores around the country and online. Treat yo self to some fine leather goods and pick up a pair. It’ll be the best day of the year.

I got a nudged a few weeks back by a homie to start using the Sets Feature for svpply. Naturally it made sense. I like it because for a while Svvply was for me a resrouce for the mashups and a place to dump items that I need to purchase or wished I could purchase. With the sets, it has allowed me to organize the confusion of my svpply profile.
I wanted to take this time to introduce you to my sets and explain some others that you should get familiar with.
One of my first sets was inspired by the homie CB’s sets that are featured on svpply. Simple straight and to the point. A classic ADT mashup. The next was A Lunch Meeting with Cliff Huxtable at the Four Seasons. Fans of American Psycho should get a kick out of that one. The last and my favorite is We Pregame Harder Than You Party. That was a motto that I started saying back in college. This set is basically the essentials of my cocktail den.
I also wanted to point out the fact that others such as Marisa are creating sets focused around specific items such as bags in her case, or Josh Woods amazing literature collection. All around dope concept and I hope you start one if you have a svpply account.

Let me start by saying this; it takes a certain kind of person to pull off a double breasted jacket/suit coat of any kind. The type of person that likes to stand out from the pack and wants to be taken seriously. The type of person that knows what they want, and may not know exactly how they are going to achieve that, but knows that it will get done.

I came across this picture of Mr. Fonzworth Bentley recently doing some research for @BldgStonehenge. With fall basically here, well here for those of you that don’t live in south Florida, everyone is gearing up for all the sartorial fun summer’s heat sometimes doesn’t allow.
Mr. Bentley’s outfit here is just done so well. I have recently had some questions on colors and patterns and I thought I would give some advice.
Sport Coat - For the fall jackets are a must! During the summer it’s usually too hot for them. I’m a fan of jackets with patterns to them like the jacket pictured. Not to crazy but enough to get you noticed. Not too sure of the material here but tweed, wool and cashmere are great for this time of year.
The Tie - You see here Fonzworth pulls a color out of the jacket to tie the tie into the outfit. Also peep the fabric play with textures. I think we have been so accustomed to silk ties there so many other fabrics to mix and match, it really adds depth to your outfit.
The Shirt- Now since his tie is so bold and has a pattern to it. Keep the shirt simple as he does. It doesn’t have to be plain but keep it simple.
Pocket Square- I AM AN ADVOCATE FOR MORE POCKET SQUARES. The pocket is there use it. Fonsworth does two things here, he carefully picked what at first glance is a simple pocket square but he brings out the darker chocolate in the pattern of the coat and the what appears to be blue rolled edge is the I don’t give a care color. I say it’s good to know the rules style but its way more fun to break them.

Clothes and the Man by Alan Flusser. 1985 (out of print but copies can be purchased on Amazon).
From Publishers Weekly“A sense of style is acquired,” notes menswear designer Flusser (Making the Man), and “the ultimate aim of this book is to try to educate the reader about the basic principles of fine dressing.” Through his overview of changes in men’s fashions from the 1930s (“the height of elegance”) to the present, and his discussion of the current styles of suits, shirts, shoes and accessories, the author attains his goal. There are tips on fit and color coordination, recommendations for appropriate wear for different occasions, clothing suggestions for other-than-average figures (playing down a full figure, drawing attention away from long legs, giving the illusion of height to a short man) and drawings that illustrate what Flusser decrees to be the right way to knot a tie or fold a handkerchief. A useful guide by an expert in the field.
