Fall baby, fall.

For days when I’m not feeling all neutral and minimal, I’ll always go back to an easy flannel, denim, vest and Red Wing boots look.
Black coffee and cigarettes not included.

*This post contains the use of what we call “the hillbilly hem job,” a term loveably applied to the folding under of excess fabric at the hem of one’s pants. We, in no way, endorse this tactic as a longterm solution to long pantz. Go to a tailor. But, in the short term, what the hell? Plus, this entire photo shoot was unplanned, I was caught by one of the many street style photographers in the middle of Missouri while I was on a lonesome hike through the woods in my double monks, and I needed a quick solution. You’re not still cuffing your pants, are you? Besides, that’s why the ROTM dudes put a lug sole on those monks, guys. For hiking. They want you to do more hiking.

BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING

Have you guys heard of Barena? It’s Italian tailored, casual #menswear. And it’s awesome. Tailored casual is king. Jersey everything. Fleece, everywhere. Your grandpa’s sweatsuit and your blazer can be made of the same thing now. Anyway, I found this double breasted jersey sport coat on Yoox for, like, not very much money. The fit is spot on and it’s unlined, unstructured, and unbelievably comfortable. Notice how it’s layered over an aran knit sweater? That’s for texture. The internet told me fall is about texture.

I don’t care if you hate camouflage, these Baldwin joints are on point. Word is that Hova wears them a ton. If you hate on something Jay-Z rocks all the time, no offense, but who the hell do you think you are? I’ll trust your opinion when your net worth is around $500 million.
Oh, and double monks on a lug sole? Phew, never thought I’d see the day. That is, of course, until the Run of the Mill guys dropped these bombs on us last fall. As a man who’s notoriously obsessed with resoling shoes with soles that have no business being welted to the uppers I’ve chosen for them, these struck a deep, deep chord with me. Couldn’t drop $435 on ‘em, but I found some on StyleForum at a steep discount. And seriously, it’s completely normal for guys to walk around in the forest with double monks! That’s what lug soles are for! Welcome to the 21st century. 
On Cameron: double-breasted jersey blazer by Barena; cotton aran knit sweater by J.Crew; The Ryan pant in camo by Baldwin; scotch grain double monks by Run of the Mill; thrifted scarf.
