Way Off the Reservation





Sometimes it's good to dress against type. I tried to Yankify this mostly Anglophile presentation with a baseball bat.

Say what you want about Charles Tyrwhitt shirts — they are a very inexpensive way to get some British flair going. Not the sort of thing I'd want all the time, or even some of the time, but for occasional laughs...

(The skinny: Thrifted Burberry DB blazer, twin vents and cheesy buttons with a winged horse. CT shirt and links. Berle flannels, pleated. AE Stanford shoes, eBay. Ben Silver tie, thrifted. Lands End socks and a pocket square from who knows where. Citizen Eco-Drive watch with the ubiquitous striped strap from Central Watch.)

Off to Boston for the weekend. I won't wear anything like this to the gathering of the New England Press Association. It would go right past dandification into sheer obnoxiousness.

CT shirts feel like brillo pads but this combination sings.

Excellent. The Anglophile in me likes this. A lot. I don't know why it wouldn't wear well in Boston; it would wear very well in Tokyo, even without the Yankee baseball bat. Cheers.

The baseball bat made me laugh out loud. Great stuff.

Great post. Excellent outfit for house patrol. I thought the baseball bat was for hunting hippies and lizard people...
