My Favorite Things

In everyone’s closet, there’s the items you say “What was I thinking?”. Then there’s the items you can’t wait to wear again. Versatility, fit, and an overall cool factor turns that ho-hum purchase into a go-to for years to come.

Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer


Classic brand in a classic silhouette, the wayfarer provides the form that fits a lot of people well combined with the ability to fold the shades in half and pocket it. I’m also a sucker for tortoiseshell.

J. Crew Caramel Chinos



Everyone needs a good pair of chinos in their repertoire. Time after time, I go back to these Urban Slim chinos from J. Crew in melted caramel. Don’t get me wrong, I have quite a few hues in this style, but there’s something about the way this particular shade of khaki pairs so well with navy.

Miansai Anchor Bracelet


From sailor stripe to boat shoes, I love nearly everything nautical themed. Miansai anchor bracelets have an iconic look and pair nicely with a metal watch too. And while I find most men’s jewelry a bit too feminine, the corded rope will never be confused with something from Tiffany’s.

Cole Haan Lunargrands



Take something classic and put a modern twist on it. That’s a basis for many items in my closet. Likewise, Lunargrands take a classic suede wingtip and throw a Nike sneaker on the bottom of them. The combo meshes street and office style, a marriage I can definitely support.

J. Crew Ludlow Shirt in gingham



Released within the past year, J. Crew created a shirt built around its popular Ludlow suit. The result is a trim, high quality shirt that comes in several collar option. I love the spread, as the short collar doesn’t overpower me. With the amount of pattern mixing I do, gingham has become something like a solid white for me. Ubiquitous but still a standout, this is my favorite shirt.
