Mr. Raincoat

I have been having such a fantastic time during my weeklong stay in New York.
It's rained these past two days,
so I finally had an excuse to wear my raincoat.
Here's what i'm wearing...
Simple answer for keeping warm and remaining stylish: light layers.
The rich brown hues from my shoes and portfolio case complimented the 
dark navy cords and jacket perfectly.  I though it was a great and subtle accent
especially for the gloomy day.
There are so many reasons this overcoat has quickly become one of my favorites
and suggested must-haves of the season.
It's tailored, functional, and has a modern cut which isn't as easy as 
one may think when searching for the perfect raincoat.
The navy color makes it extremely versatile so you can bring it out season after season.

Cardigan: Armani Exchange (similar)
Shirt: Hugh & Crye, c/o
Tie: Thrifted
Cords: Hudson, c/o
Watch: Daniel Wellington, c/o
Shoes: COACH, c/o

The energy in this city in unparalleled.

Tweed Blazer and Brogues

As per my recent Autumn inspired posts, here's another showing you
how I like to combine textures.
Here's what i'm wearing...
1: thick, wool socks from J.Crew
I await every season for new styles and color ways.
Just having a little fun and experimenting during shooting time :)
Single pant cuff to expose the socks slightly, and give the look a little added character.
Kept my color palette simple: browns, blues, and grey for transition.
Paired my vintage Topman brogues with this Bar III coat from their current Carnaby Collection.
I love combining preppy and classic pieces to create a 
modern look, with a sleek silhouette.
Hmm, guess that's me in a nutshell!
I've had these brogues for about 5 years and they continue to get the job done.
They've aged fantastically, and I can't seem to find another pair with 
this particular color combo and detail.  These guys are one of the first pairs
of brogues I bought when I was discovering myself, and my personal 
style for that matter.  I hold these guys dear.
Jacket: Bar III, c/o
Shirt: Grand Frank
Denim: Duffie
Socks: J.Crew
Brogues: Topman
Bag: Will Leather Goods (similar hereherehere)
Sunglasses: ivory + mason

Mixing colors and textures is one of the best parts of Fall style.
My favorites are browns, tweeds, grays, and wools-
what about you?
What are your favorite combos for the season?

Share with us below, Gents!

Perfect Moto Jacket for Fall

The cooler months are amongst my favorite of the year since I love layering and outerwear.
Every year, I say i'm going to find and invest in the perfect leather jacket, and
seldom do I come across one that has the perfect  fit, color, and style- until now.
This moto jacket is one of those pieces I never new I needed so much until I got it.
Do you guys have any pieces like that in your closet?
Apart from the buttery soft leather, this moto has perfectly quilted sleeves and 
gunmetal hardware- talk about details!

Underneath, I added some simple layers to complete the Autumnal look:
textured vest, wool tie, and gingham shirt.
The combination of the darker hues mixed well the rich color of the jacket.
To dress down your look, throw on your favorite pair of denim and some chukkas
and you're all set!
Jacket: Andrew Marc, ℅
Shirt: Twillory, c/o
Tie: QP Collections, c/o
Watch: Meister, c/o
Shoes: Just A Men Shoe
Bracelets: Thread Etiquette (similar herehere)
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

The moto jacket is definitely a Fall staple in my book.
It can be dressed up or down, and
always adds that extra touch of bad-ass to any look.
Make sure to stay updated
on all my current happenings and outfits on IG.
I'm heading out of town next week and hoping to bump into some of you guys
along the way!

Where are your guys from? Let's talk gents, comment below!

Autumn Boots

The Sunlight was so great, I literally took some shots outside
of my parent home in beautiful Whittier.
Check out my favorite autumn boots and deers












Jacket: Desigual c/o
Shirt:  Zachary Prell c/o
Denim: Armai Exchange c/o
Tie: Weekend Causal c/o
Pocket square: Van Gils c/o
Belt: Forever 21 Men 
Watch: Timex
Bracelets: Thread Etiquette c/o
Boots: Andres Sendra c/o

Whittier is a city about 20 minutes outside 
DTLA.  The city is so beautiful filled with large trees
and radiant skies (its also the city I grew up in).  
I found an impromptu photo-shoot had to
go down!  Wearing a monochromatic look, I paired my favorite 
Autumn boots to add a POP of color, and  truly engage with the
season.  
These boots are everything, they will definitely  been going 
with me on my season long escapades!

Cheers,

Blake Scott
