The Stylist Manifesto: First Day Of Class

If you’ve been following my Instagram lately (@stylstmanifesto) or my blog (despite my sporadic writing schedule), you’ll notice I tend to mix eras. Often this is done by seamlessly blending modern pieces with those of a vintage aesthetic. This ensemble was n exception. The driver’s cap is reminiscent of 1950′s California as are the tie and cardigan. The faint striping of said sweater contrasts the subtle striping of the tie and the almost indistinguishable black ticking of the jacket. For a bit of complication, a multi-check patterned button down peeks from beneath the cardigan and is interrupted by the aforementioned vintage tie. Then I selected Japanese tailored denim by gap with a classic Brando/Dean cuff. Finally, as two complimentary garnishes, I chose the super limited (released 2012 and sold out everywhere) Clot X G-shock Translucent Red watch.  As the blue and red palettes are always complimentary, the choice was obvious. :)
