Blake in Brooks Brothers Part 2: Fall Sportwear
It's Fall and there's enough of a chill in the air to put on a sweater, but not so much that I'll bother with socks. With classic blue and orange tones, this outfit is a staple of my fall rotation-at least until snow hits the ground.
This outfit highlights staple pieces in my wardrobe. When getting dressed I hardly ever think of what’s physically comfortable (I’m all about the look), but I do prioritize well fitting clothes. To this end, I can always depend on a blue oxford and pair of chinos to keep me looking effortless and classic. From what I’ve seen on the market, for the price Brooks Brothers makes the best OCBDs* and permanent pressed chinos out there. The tennis sweater is an ode to my collegiate days; can you blame me for not wanting to hang it up? Finally, my JP Crickets University slippers are a crowd favorite (they’re available in about a dozen universities).
*The OCBD shown here is Brooks’ earlier version, which I prefer, priced now at $79. The newer OCBDs retail for $140.
