James Andrew – Palm Beach in Manhattan

Someone recently described my summer style as “Palm Beach in Manhattan,” which I think is rather a sensational way to put it! As most of you all know, I adore Palm Beach, especially the Palm Beach of yesteryear – think: 1960’s/1970’s super-chic jet-setters and the crisp tropical attire that so perfectly exemplified those Halcyon days. Needless to say, I often have those dreamy images in my mind when I’m conjuring up my own summer ensembles – a point that I think I’ve made pretty clear by today’s outfit! Here, I’m channeling more than a bit of that aforementioned Slim Aarons at Lyford Cay style romance as I head off to a luncheon at the Everglades Club…well, in my fantasies at least. You see, for me it’s all about creating a reality. I’ve found that dressing the part can actually get one closer to where one would like to be, and in fact it seems to be working; I’m currently decorating two homes in the Palm Beach area!

Sporting my Palm Beach in Manhattan look today, I’m wearing the palest pink Tom Ford silk suit and white suede loafers, Turnbull and Asser turquoise and white striped cotton shirt with white contrast collar and cuffs, precious turquoise cuff links, turquoise silk pocket square by Charvet Paris, vintage Rolex watch, Gucci python belt and sunglasses, and my fragrance is Creed Original Cologne.

  2. Very chic couleurs des glaces James; they would look just as well in the South of France (from whence I am newly returned).

  3. Juan Moliné says:

    I am charmed with the color cake of this suit!!!!!! I like very much tom ford and you are the most handsome.


  4. James Andrew says:

    My Dear Alexx,

    I do adore pastels as well, this combination of pale pink and turquoise made me feel like I was pink sand with the turquoise sea.

    Cheers and Many Thanks

    Dear Robet O’Byrne,

    I can’t wait to hear ALL about your holiday in the South of France.

    Yes – I think these kinds of classic looks translate well to summering in a wide range of chic destinations around the world from Newport to Nice.

    Look forward to catching up!

    Querido Juan,

    Si estes colores son como un torta de Marie Antoinette, muy delicioso como ti.

    Besos y Abrazzos


  7. George Kaminski says:

    Spectacular look, James. You look really hot ( in a cool way)!

  8. Oonagh says:

    Gorgeous colours. I particularly like the darker turquoise handkerchief, it gives the whole look a little bit of an edge.

  9. James Andrew says:

    Hello George Kaminski and Thank You!

    I will have to wear this gorgeous suit more often!

    All the best!


  10. James Andrew says:

    Dear Oonagh,

    Yes – the mix of turquoise in the pocket square and the cuff links as well as the paler turquoise striped shirt was just such a pleasing palette- so happy to hear you enjoyed it as much as I did!
