Foreshadowing Fall

I’m sitting in my room in Manila, trip slightly prolonged, looking out into the garden of eternal sunlight, dreaming of the crisp, moody New York City fall.  A trip to my tailor’s nearly cost me a finger, as I held up a piece of velvet chiffon and had my finger caught in a dirty steel ceiling fan #sufferingforfashion.  I’ve been spending the last few weeks mapping out my looks for this season, and this endeavor involves a good deal of accessory planning.  Here are my favorite recent acquisitions, nearly all in my favorite amalgamation of all colors forever and ever: black.

I am an AG jeans convert, and the one thing I find outstanding about their pants is the fabric.  Waxed skinny jeans in the most comfortable, un-leggingy stretch waxed black denim without the waxy residue on your fingers.  These are the Dylans, in black slick.

Nothing parallels the ease of a zip pouch.  It is a satellite of your coat pocket and takes the bulk out of a soft or a fitted silhouette.

There is an unexpected elegance to the shape of the classic Timberland boot.  It draws a slim line from the toe up to the shaft, and the lug soles evoke weekends in Aspen.  In all-black, it is understated and handsome.

Tim Hamilton makes the perfect motorcycle jacket.  Heavy, luxe, minimally detailed, and with black hardware, it adds a touch of toughness to my Fall pajama looks.

Laird London makes exquisite hats.  I have the classic crushable hat, and crush it I will, wearing it out and around town on all my bad hair days until it gets old and rumpled a la my ultimate life peg Yohji-san.
