Fall in Chicago

Experienced my first true Fall experience whilst roaming the streets
of Chicago's Lincoln Park.  Ash and I ventured over from our stay in Downtown
to be greeted by blocks and blocks of classic Autumn foliage.
We'd never experienced anything like it!
Here's what I wore for a meeting and lunch with The Tie Bar, and 
adventures through the city.
I opted for a navy/navy look with warm pops of color that 
ended up matching my scenery- go figure. 
Wearing this unstructured blazer by Vera Largo, cutaway collar shirt 
by Twillory (see below for discount), The Tie Bar tie and tie clip.
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Jacket: Vera Largo
Shirt: Twillory (Discount code: WINDYCITY for 25% off)
Pants: Kenneth Cole
Tie: The Tie Bar
Watch: Miansai

My Herschel backpack carried all of my necessities throughout the day:
back up chargers, iPad, extra socks, water, MOD, and some gloves for the evening.
Once we leave our place in the morning, we seldom ever make it back
until later in the night.  I like to make sure I have everything I need
for a full day of activities.
The pack was ideal for this outfit because of the kick ass chambray material,
and comfortably padded straps.

The gents over at Twillory were kind enough to offer you guys 25% off your
order using the discount code: WINDYCITY.
Shop away, and be sure to let me know which ones you buy!

Members Only

Hey everyone!    
Today's post was taken in LA before leaving on my 3 week trip to New York,
Chicago, and finally Milwaukee where I am currently writing you.
Apologies for the delay in posting, I took some personal time to explore each city
and to shoot some great content for you guys.
I've also been working on my new site which I can't wait to introduce!
Anyway, here's what i'm wearing, and where you can buy directly!
These red Lacoste sneaks have been perfect for those off duty days when i'm 
running errands around the city, or lounging with my family.  You can wear them with 
denim and a patterned shirt, or with an on-trend jacket and some chinos
like I did today.
The vibrancy in the shoe adds the perfect pop of color to your OOTD, so 
make sure you keep the rest of your palette a bit subdued.

Sunglasses: zeroUV
Jacket: Members Only
Bag: Will Leather Goods
Pants: Moods of Norway
Shoes: Lacoste (similar herehere)
Bracelets: Thread Etiquette (similar)
Watch: Timex

I have been collecting a range of jackets, and this bomber by Members Only
fits perfectly with my collection.  The lightweight nylon fabric and knit-ribbed collar
are some great features that complete this jacket.
The navy shade with red detail is really nice, and it adds some
 character to the piece.

Roaming East Village


I got so many requests regarding this OOTD on IG , that I decided
to post it ASAP!  Here's what I wore whilst roaming the East Village...
New Balance sneaks and Mack Weldon solid socks.
 Thread Etiquette bracelets & Fossil Defender watch
Grayers sweater and Dockers alpha khakis

I decided to not organize my day and just spend it walking around 
the East Village in NY.
It was great to not have an end time, nor a place and time 
to be.  I went with NB's because of their comfort and versatility.
The camos were a change up from the every day denim,
which I complemented with this deep navy houndstooth sweater. 
I figured I'd dress for a day of "who knows what"? 

Style comes with versatility. 
Dress for you, but also dress for anything the day may bring you.

Cheers,

Blake Scott

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.
Overcoat: Gap x GQ: Brooklyn Tailors, c/o
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.
Thanks to all my buddies and New Yorkers for always making me feel at home.
