WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Seaman Schepps

Seaman Schepps has been dubbed “America’s Court Jeweler” and a look at their list of past and current patrons certainly support this well deserved moniker – Hollywood elite like the iconic Katherine Hepburn, major families such as the Duponts and Rockefellers, the artist Andy Warhol, style empress Coco Chanel, and Windsor royalty are just a few of the many notable names on the Schepps list. Their innovative and diverse use of natural materials like sea shells, sandalwood, walnut, and carved rock crystal mixed with precious stones in pleasing colour combinations, creates an effect that is not only elegant but whimsically beautiful (not to mention fun to wear)! The Seaman Schepps legacy lives on and continues to dazzle and intrigue.

You can often find me at the uber chic Seaman Schepps at 485 Park Avenue @ 58th Street contemplating additions to my much cherished cufflink collection! I’m wearing my fab 80’s glam nappa leather bomber jacket in a turquoise, purple, and black sprayed wash finish (I like taking a casual fun piece like this and mixing in more elegant pieces), a pale purple and white striped cotton shirt with white collar and cuffs both by Gucci, Seaman Schepps cufflinks in precious turquoise and white gold, black silk tie is by Charvet Paris, black and white silk /cotton houndstooth pants by Gucci, purple alligator belt with sterling buckle by Ralph Lauren, Gucci “Playboy” black python loafers and black leather tote.

    James, You look like Bud Cort in “Harold and Maude” here. I do like seeing your handsome face not covered by sunglasses. Seaman Schepps is such a fantastic place, truly authentic. Your natural connoisseurship has attracted you to such a place, where fantasy has been made into tangible objects for everyday enjoyment and enrichment on a personal level. DF Naples

    James, hello from London, just found your blog – as mentioned in Elle Deco – and must commend you on your curiously cool style! Love the deliciously divine jacket too. Btw have you ever thought of wearing a cravat – you might be inspired by my latest ShopCurious blog?

    I love the Seaman Schepps collection! So beautiful. Cufflinks and much, much more. I hope Seaman Schepps will start making more earrings in drop design – perhaps you can offer this as a suggestion?

  5. What a fab 80s flashback! I bet you pulled stares in this, you looker, you. LOVING the bag and when you’re done with it, can you please lob it across the ocean to Australia? x
