WIWT (this weekend): My summer is going really well so far. It’s going so well that I barely even get a chance to post WIWTs anymore. My posts usually slow down in the summer and start to ramp back up in the fall/winter but I will try to get some more posts up soon. This is what I wore on laid back date night in Port Jefferson with my wife on Saturday. I love my kelly green chinos. I have had a thing for green lately.

Shirt: RL Rugby (R.I.P)

Pants: Kelly green milano chinos by Brooks Brothers

Loafers: Banana Republic

Watch: Concord Mariner automatic chrono

Brooks Brothers long sleeved button down polo..One of my new favorite shirts..So comfortable and light for the spring weather but the cut is still modern and gives you a well put together look without much effort..The watch is a vintage Timex automatic that is probably 30-40 years old.

I took my vintage BB varsity jacket out for a spin today.

I love sundays. Sunday is by far my favorite day of the week. I keep my Sundays as casual as possible and usually don’t even wear a tucked shirt if I don’t have to. I had a really laid back day and went to do some outlet shopping with my wife. Good times.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!! I know I did. I have been off all week so things have been really laid back and relaxed around here. I went out to do a little shopping with the wife yesterday and this is what I wore. This is one of my favorite sweaters. It is 85% silk and 15% cashmere and hand knit. It is warm but the way that it is knitted allows it to be extremely breathable also. It goes nicely over almost any shirt and I love the way it fits. It was really warm yesterday so I threw this on and I didn’t even need a coat.

WIWT:

-Brooks Brothers shawl collar cardigan
-Polo RL OCBD
-Polo tan cords
-Polo RL tie
-J. Crew socks
-Alden horse bit loafers
-Vintage Omega Seamaster watch

*****for those of you that don’t know, black watch Friday is a black watch appreciation day that I started a couple of years ago. That is why I have on a black watch tie and a black watch shirt at the same time. I would never, under normal circumstances, wear a shirt and tie combo this busy. This is one day where we break the rules and go a little crazy.******

New watch alert: Rolex Submariner date 16610 F series serial

I have always wanted a Rolex Submariner. In my opinion, it is the all around perfect watch. It’s dressy enough to be worn with a sport coat and a tie, yet rugged enough to wear on the weekend with chinos and a rugby. It is classic, timeless and has looked the same since the 50’s. It isn’t going anywhere. If I was told that I had to choose one watch to wear for the rest of time, this would be the watch that I would choose. Some people are into the vintage Submariners, and I like those too but for my first Submariner I wanted something newer. I have been researching Submariners for years and I decided that the 16610 was the Submariner for me—it has the “no holes” case and the solid end links. I have been waiting for the right one to come along for months. When I came across this one that was in mint condition with all boxes, papers, polishing cloth AND the anchor, I had to pull the trigger. I am so glad that I did. I plan on keeping this watch forever. This is a watch that I plan on handing down to my future son one day.
