Rogers Slim Ballet Flats by Jack Rogers

It is no secret that we are really dreading the thought of retiring our boatshoes for the season.  Well, it dawned on us that the ladies in our lives are going through the same thing with a whole host of warm weather shoes that are slowly being put into hibernation.  If we had to bet, we would say that the most missed for them will be their trusty Navajos from Jack Rogers.  If you find yourself in the same boat,  you should absolutely take a look at the Rogers Slim Ballet Flats ($198).

Overdyed Oxfords by Gitman Vintage

From go to hell pants, to brightly colored bowties, many might consider our style of dress a bit “bold.”  Well, if that is what they want to call it, that is fine with us, things could definitely be far worse.  Of course, this time of year the color palette tends to calm down a bit, but we still work in plenty of bold options whenever we can.  One shirt that is certainly a bit more bold than the traditional pastel colored oxfords that we all love is the Overdyed Oxford ($165) by Gitman Vintage.

Long Sleeve Pique Polo by johnnie-O

The polo section of our closet is one that seems to always be growing.  Whether we are turned on to a new brand, or just attracted to a new color or cut from one of our old favorites, we are never not on the lookout for a new polo.  Now that the weather is turning cold, our attention has been turned to long sleeve polos as of late.  Recently, one of our favorite up and coming brands, johnnie-O, entered into the world of long sleeve polos with their aptly named Long Sleeve Pique Polo ($65).

Classic Retro-X Jacket by Patagonia

For those weekend days when you are planning on keeping things simple with jeans and a t-shirt, but are still going to need something to keep you warm when you head out, a high quality fleece is they way to go.  Sure, there are a ton of options out there, but if we are using a fleece as our only only source of warmth we tend to go with offerings from companies that focus on gear that is made to stand up to harshest of elements.  This weekend, we are sticking with an old favorite, the Classic Retro-X Jacket ($199) by Patagonia.

Wool Bowtie by Lands End Canvas

If you have read our previous bowtie Friday posts, you know that we have a soft spot for bows that are made of some “non-traditional” tie fabrics.  From seersucker and madras in the summer, to wools and tweeds for the cooler months, we are always looking for something just a bit different than the norm.  Luckily for us, a number of our favorite brands have realized just how good a bowtie can look in something other than silk.  Our latest love comes from the gang at Lands End Canvas.  Their Wool Bowtie ($59.50) is destined to be in heavy rotation this year.
