100 Days of Ties: Day 65: Red, white, and blue in remembrance.

The day still lives in infamy...

December 7 is obviously a huge day in American history. In honor of our veterans and those still active in our armed forces, I donned a few hues of the ol’ red, white, and blue. Should have probably went all Made in the USA, too, and not gone with the H&M coat and J Crew tie and pants, but I will leave it up to the Wharf shirt and Tanner Goods belt to pick up that slack. Thank you to all that have and continue to risk their lives for the citizens of this great country.

Life has published an amazing set of photos of the Pearl Harbor attacks. Check them out.

100 Days of Ties: Day 61: The Gentleman Traveler vs. The Morning Commute

City: Denver / Time: 6:54AM / Boots: Red Wing Gentleman Travelers / Peacoat: H&M / Bag: Lands' End Canvas (tip of the hat) / Shirt: Wharf / Tie: Pierrepont Hicks / Cardigan: J.Crew / Denim: Levi's

I don’t care if you are the frigid morning air or icy sidewalks or the fact that I am still ridiculously tired because I stayed up late watching Apprentice reruns when I should have been sleeping. Balderdash!” But in all honesty, I do not rock my Red Wings as much as I should. Today, though? Today just felt right to do so. Ands I’m glad I did. Super comfortable, wickedly durable, and the color is just bar none. Nothing like a shade of light chestnut among shades of blues and grays to make the outfit pop. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t already gotten a plethora of compliments on these ass-kickers… Same people who said something about the panda sweater. I’m just throwing the world for a loop. Now almost a year old, these Gentleman Travelers were WELL worth the price point. I recommend them highly. Also, every item on me I suggest checking out. Wharf and Pierrepont Hicks especially. You already know J. Crew and Levi’s and H&M.

Plus, we’re gonna revisit these boots just in time for the holidays….
