I know this is cliche, but it has to be said: Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the prospect of going to the Louisburg Cider Mill in Kansas, drinking chai lattes on an outdoor patio, fire pits glowing with warmth, crunchy leaves underfoot, and so much turkey at Thanksgiving that you either want to cry, die or lie down.
As a reader of this site, I always loved the “uniform” posts, so here’s mine. Disclaimer: It’s pretty much all J.Crew, but hey, it’s my thing at the moment.
Last year, J.Crew came out with a slub-merino elbow patch sweater, which was so popular that they brought it back this year. HURRAH. For those of you who don’t know, slub merino is a type of yarn that is unevenly twisted to create an irregular, bumpy texture. This makes the sweater not only super warm, but kind of chunky and really easy to wear. For that academic vibe, it’s also decked out with brown, suede, elbow patches. Along with this, I’ve been wearing my “Essential” 484 chinos, light-wash chambray shirt, camo socks (never thought I’d say that), gray suede bucks, and my Giles & Brother railroad spike cuff.
