UK Vogue 1971
Hard to believe Fall is finally here. Hard to believe this image from UK Vogue is from the early '70s. Tweed jacket and vest are Turnbull & Asser -- I like classic mixed with fashion of the time. The large belt & buckle reminds you when this picture was taken, but it's not an anachronism. It looked good then and better now.
That's the great thing about dressing for yourself. While the designer wants you to look like a store window -- Understand, it's his store window. But trust me on this. Even designers don't want to look like their windows. I've met a bunch of 'em and they never wear their own stuff. Not unless they're with their PR agency.
Take a classic piece out of your closet and throw it in with something intelligent from today. Something unique like a Jay Kos tie or green suede Trickers from Grahame Fowler. Like mixing late 18th and mid 20th century furniture in a living room. It's not supposed to go together but it does. Search out today's unique and there's a good chance it becomes the classic your son wears 40 years from now.
