What am I wearing 2.13.12

A couple months ago, I wrote a post about wearing sport coats casually, and I wanted to put everything I said in there into practice today. This brown, all-cotton herringbone jacket by RRL does the trick perfectly, its design and fabric giving off a very casual vibe.

Kept my shoes, belt, and bag in the same color family as the jacket for consistency, and combined those elements with a very versatile white shirt and dark blue selvedge jean.

By the way, if you have the opportunity to get a Filson bag, I highly recommend it. Durable, rugged, stylish, and carries a lifetime warranty. You can see mine gets used quite a bit, as my raw denim has rubbed off on the side of the bag.

I’m a fan of this jacket because of its herringbone design, which is usually found on wools, but in this case, on cotton.

Some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. These suede chukka boots weren’t cheap, but I think they were worth the extra money.

      Thank you sir!

    When you ordered your Aldens, did you order true to size, or have to size down?

    • thesimplerman

      I believe these ones were from J.Crew. I ordered half a size down because the Barrie Last was actually a bit bigger than I had hoped, when I ordered in my original size.

        Thanks for the response. There isn’t an Aldens store in my state and was unsure regarding the sizing. I had been going back and forth between these or the Alden Indy. This post made up my mind :)

    Saying hi from the Philippines.. What do you call that bracelet? And what brand are you wearing here?

      Hey Nomer! The bracelet is a braided leather bracelet. I got mine from a small corner shop in Portland, Oregon, but it wasn’t very high quality. I’m thinking of getting a nicer one soon though.

    Thanks SM. I hope to read/see more of your office attire. You know Philippines can be so hell hot so i’m searching for an inspiration to still dress well and comfortable in an office attire. Thanks and more power!
