The Middle Ground: Layering.

As usual, the weather in Central Virginia is bi-polar at best. Cold, warm, rainy, sunny, all in the same day. Which makes layering the only sensible solution to dressing for the day.

My Crosby breathable, waxed jacket by Country Attire, a no-name pashmina scarf, RL flannel herringbone trousers and a pair of  J Fitzpatrick Fauntleroy monkstraps let me venture into the wilds of the city.

At a draughty client’s office the waxed jacket gets removed and I’m left in a silk polo (ancient Jos. A. Banks), and my ultra light down vest by Uniqlo.

Back home, I’ll do away with the vest and stay comfortable and presentable in the silk polo layered over a truely wonderful t-shirt by DSTLD. I can recommend both of their greys. The collars lay flat!

Be prepared this coming spring and learn to layer.

    Hi Chris,

    Those are great looking slacks. That light gray is somewhat unique looking. I love them. I also always look forward to your posts.

    Thanks
    Todd

  2. Dear Chris,
    You look dashing in those slacks and compliment for wearing them at the proper length too! A flaw for most male here in the USA that they don’t wear their slacks at the proper length… It always slims and lengthens a person instead of stumping off. A lesson about Silhouette – Proportion and Fit.
    Smart way for layering the way you do and still looking professional!
    Stay cozy.
    Mariette
