HOW TO: Layer for fall

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.

Out of season & in my price range.

Shopping out of season has it perks. Sure, you can’t buy it now and wear it now. But good things come to those who wait and such, or at least that’s what I chose to follow when I was in Los Angeles last year. I made my annual stop at Opening Ceremony to snatch up all the discarded and left for the dead items that denizens of Los Angeles decided weren’t good for them that winter. I mean, you live in L.A. why would you own anything but bikinis, crop-tops and jellies, right?

Beautiful leather, great color and rather comfortable. It was a style that I wasn’t sure how to wear, but managed to pull them off by placing my pants completely over them and at times, yes at times, I’ll do a slight back tuck so the front part just shows. It’s a look, but hey I’ll give it a try until Seth disapproves. More importantly, I scored these leather jodhpur boots for 75% off, which made cheaper than a pair of selvedge denim. Worth it, man.
