THANK YOU

James Andrew Thanksgiving

James Andrew Thanksgiving

We’re just wrapping up the Thanksgiving holiday stateside. It’s a time for festivities with family and friends in the spirit of the early settlers’ harvest feast (and I trust many of us are also remembering the Wampanoag’s indispensable part in the success of that harvest!).

As you know I’m not one to express thanks just once yearly, but make continual gratitude a big part of my daily mindset! Certainly as TUT recently posted, two of the most powerful words for bringing about change are “thank you” —and that sign of gratitude can be particularly efficacious when presented before change even happens, when life still looks much like it did the day before. In fact a sincere “thank you” can help in coping with things we generally label undesirable, such as fear and sadness. It’s a way of recognizing that we can learn from everything—that the bumps in life are a wake up call that can assist our progress toward deeper understanding and even enlightenment.

All that being said, we here at WIJW have had a lot to be grateful for this weekend, and we’ve been having a grand time getting caught up in the spirit of the holiday, cooking for family, friends, and strays alike. It’s hard for me to think of a better gift than to invite people over to share a meal lovingly and of course stylishly prepared! Thank you to all here on WIJW for joining in our celebration of thanks!

Scott McBee has captured me preparing a meal at home for a small group of fabulous friends. I’m sporting a Tom Ford rustic wool silk tweed mouline “priest hat” tweed “Country” jacket, Turnbull and Asser forest green and white mini check shirt with contrast white collar, antique Scottish agate cuff links, Charvet forest green and white retro print silk pocket square, Gucci python belt with double horse head silver buckle, Uniqlo jeans and Gucci black suede “Belgian” style slippers. My fragrance is Creed Royal-Oud

  1. James, old boy,

    That ‘stache really suits you! Keep it! Did you know that Babe Paley had a similarly shaped mirror (in pear wood) at Kiluna Farm?
    I can only imagine how delicious your dinner was! Enjoy!

    James, your attire is chic and relaxed and you always look handsome, mustache, or not!
    I love the philosophy by which you live by! You are very wise, as well as being a fashion and design genius. I have read your words carefully here and have taken them to heart. I found it all profound and you touched on a few things that moved me. I’m sure Thanksgiving with you would be very special, since you have a beautiful perspective on the importance of gratitude everyday. I am thankful that there are people as genuine and inspiring as you in this world, James.

    James, it is us who should be thanking you for the joy you bring us all year long with your fabulous blog. It is evident that you put a lot of time and thought into this endeavor. I can’t wait to open the blog and see what topic it will be each time. A lot of your heart can be read in the accompanying message. The photography is very professional and original. The clothes are spot on for each occasion and you are the perfect model for them. Keep up the great work and thank you for this gem of a blog.

    My Darling Dean,

    I know the mirror well and perhaps was in the back of my mind when I happened upon this super chic version.

    Cheers

    My Dear Mr Cruz,

    I live for this conflation of the metaphysical and the marvelous- the seemingly disparate ideas that often we find the need to separate or label – the fabulous is quite often the getting in touch with our best selves.

    Cheers and Many Thanks for all your tremendous support!

    JA
