Hat and Vest – vintage, Trousers – Samuelsohn Shirt – Eton, Bowtie – Brooks Brothers, Shoes – Brunello Cucinelli
Robert picked up the vest from a consignment store for $5 I think it is from the 1970's. The hat is from the 1940's.
One of the many pairs of wonderful men's shoes in my husband's collection that are inspired by the funky colours of the 1930's.
Every time I see my husband dressed up like this I think he was meant to live in a different era. He would fit right in on Boardwalk Empire. If you haven't watched this show it is brilliant. Currently in its fifth and final season, the acting is superb and the writing is brilliant but honestly it is a bit like MadMen, I'd watch it strictly for the fashion porn. Such fabulous styling and art direction!
I think it is worth noting that my husband chose this entire outfit on his own. Very French eclectic.
I probably should have worn more vintage here, we look like an odd pair. Oh well…the hat is vintage.
And of course I'm vintage.
Does it look like Robert is going to expire holding me like this? LOL
Your eyes are not deceiving you. I had to pixelate part of that image. The idea of being swept off my feet is 100% romantic but the visuals of the actual feat is 100% X rated hilarity.
And yes…I always have one leg kicking out behind me.
It's my blogger trick twitch.
My husband brought home an edition of Elle for Men tonight. I have yet to look through it but it is a good indication how men's style, grooming and fashion have really come to the forefront of what used to be a market dominated almost entirely by women's fashion magazines.
