This Old Chap Is Cool
This gentleman was a frequent guest on the Sartorialist, and I featured him in one of my earlier post entitled Herringbone Perfection. There is absolutely nothing that I do not like about this old chap's outfit. He perfectly demonstrates that yellow and pink can look marvelous together, and how one can wear the combination without looking like a lemonade stand. This is truly old school WASP style, and the addition of the umbrella accessory adds the over-the-top appeal you expect from an older WASP type. This picture could also be used in a dissertation about the similarities and differences between WASPs, preppies, and trads (I bet I just opened a can of worms with that statement). Anyway, I also admire the gentleman's beautifully cuffed trousers (2-inches), and impeccable penny loafers. An awesome display!
