What I Wore Today

I haven't posted lately, mainly because of 50+ pages of papers that had to be written and multiple finals before the end of the semester. But now I'm graduated from college so the blogging can continue.

Today I wore this:

-A nicely fitting modern 6x3 double breasted jacket
-A pair of Wal-Mart bought George trousers (more on this at a later date)
-Botany 500 two-tone shoes
-A vintage 1930s tie
-My one-of-a-kind "Chinatown" cowboy conversion fedora (more on this at a later date)

Here's a detailed shot of the jacket.

Yes, the lapels are quite small and that's not a bad thing. These lapels remind me of the 3 button suit jackets we see from the 1920s and early 1930s with short-gorged lapels that still looked fabulous. And the shape of these peaked lapels have something so stunningly vintage about them.
Another thing about this jacket is that it is a 6x3, meaning there are 6 buttons and 3 can be buttoned. Usually double breasted jackets are 6x2, making 6x3 jackets even more unique.

It's a rarity to find such a finely fitted and uniquely vintage styled modern suit jacket. This is not your run-of-the-mill sack suit.

And that wonderful beautifully shaped brown overcoat I rambled on about in a previous post:

I received many a comment and look while sporting this combination. It think it's a keeper.

The overcoat sleeves are a little short is my only nitpick. Otherwise, you look like a total ladykiller. Well played, sir.

Wow. You look incredible. If only I could get my husband to dress like you...

Where did you get the George Trousers? I can't find reference to them except in ladies sizes.

I bought them at Wal-Mart. I dedicated a post to them on Dec. 27th.

Unfortunately sources for men's George trousers have seemingly dried up. Two months ago I could find a great selection at my local Wal-Mart but not today. They might have moved them to make room for new stock for the season.

George brand is originally from Great Britian, being exported from there to the U.S., Mexico, Canada, Japan and other countries as cheap yet stylish clothing. Wal-Mart and other stores had contracts with George to sell their clothes.

Hi there,
I left a comment a week ago. I just wanted to follow up on this. We would like to use the image of you wearing two tone shoes in a documentary. We really like the image and would credit you accordingly. Looking forward to hearing from you regarding this.
