WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Rules Are Meant to be Broken

James Andrew - hot weather attire.

Labor Day weekend is upon us and although the last day of summer is not officially here until the 21st it may feel like the end of the Summer season already – and this can create some confusion when it comes to choosing what to wear.

My feeling on this matter is that one’s attire should be based on weather not a date on the calender – thus if it is ninety degrees, whatever day of the year, you might find me sporting some shorts and, say, some ivory shoes – In fact I wear white and other summer fashions as long as the weather still feels like summer. Perhaps in October, just after Indian summer, I’ll start to make a transition to Fall fashion – then perhaps I’ll begin to retire the linen and obvious summer things and start to wear light weight wools with a shift toward a more autumnal palette.

Fall and Winter will be here soon enough – and yes it has been (and continues to be) an extremely HOT summer, but let’s enjoy it a little while longer and not be so concerned with outdated conventions that simply make no sense!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Holiday weekend!

I’m sporting a silk paisley shirt by Gucci, (if I’m not wearing a jacket this is the kind of shirt I like to wear i.e. one with interesting details, fabric, patterns etc) shorts by Our Legacy 1980-81 in hemp, cotton, and silk, python belt with silver buckle by Gucci and Ivory suede loafers by Tom Ford and my fragrance is Creed Imperial Millesime.

    Great post James. I love the idea of putting my cotton and linen blend dress shirts with my grey flannel suits. Know the rules and then break them!!!
