As Labor Day nears here in the States the days to wear white pants or shorts dwindle. At least for the more stodgy of us. So enjoy it while I can, I figure to myself. We’ve already covered the shorts with a blazer debate so we’re okay with that, right? I felt like the white pinwhale corduroy shorts with bit loafers were a lot so I left things simple on top; a blue linen blazer and light blue oxford. I’ve never purchased anything from Lands End until this summer, and so far I am pretty happy with what I purchased. The medium brown braided belt worn here has been in the regular rotation since I got it. I think Lands End may be underrated, in honesty. Additionally, I particularly like how the blazer has white buttons on it, paired with the linen fabric it makes it much more of a summer jacket. But the pity of this all is that summer is almost over.

Hi Justin, good to see the blog continuing now that you have left New York. I can see how the tailored jacket and shorts and loafers would work – maybe an upscale restaurant in a warm climate but it is a look that I have yet to visit here in Australia. Maybe I don’t frequent enough upscale restaurants in warm climates. Over here I can still feel overdressed rocking the Ralph Lauren Purple Lable Polo with white tailored shorts and JP Tods. Enough said, Regards Geoff.
