“Tweed and a good Read”

Something I am embracing this year is more reading.  Don’t get me wrong I’m overwhelmed with the amount of information I find online, there is just something nostalgic about paper.  Mind you I don’t want to kill a tree, so recycled paper would be amazing.  Kinda like Vynal Records are making a comeback for a second life if you love old school.

I love that retro look or as the term applies “Geek Chic” is here, it gives me a chance to play with patterns and textures.  Here I have a few items I want to share.  First is how nice is this WD Black suit???  I got this baby online and less than $100, crazy lucky here.  Was just roaming the internet came across this store and Boom I have a blazing brown tweed suit.

 More importantly let’s look at the details here.  I took a wool tie and paired it up with a tweed suit so you can see the textures working.  Secondly look at the different patterns from the watch to the buttons on the suit.  I took a military look to the band of my Timex (which I change out regularly) and the tones just fit together.  For the shoes I went Oxfords over Brogues. I love a smooth leather shoe that is very versatile in nature and these Aldo shoes are perfect with a suit or jeans.

Last but not least try to increase the amount of reading you do for the upcoming year.  I am a firm believer in setting achievable goals for yourself, and reading is something that benefits you be increasing your awareness and horizons.  Wether a book or daily reading of your favorite blog, increase your capacity to learn about new items.  In the mean time, keep it classy.
