If I were rich I’d buy this Jack Spade Stuff

According the the GQ blog about fashion & style, the clothing company Jack Spade has made some killer new stuff…

…introducing men’s suiting for the first time, and they’re not messing around. The collection of traditionally-inspired pieces (think hopsack, herringbone, flannel, and camel hair) will be constructed entirely in the Massachusetts factory of venerable made-in-the-USA tailoring house, Southwick.

GQ also reports that one of the (really smart) things that Jack Spade is doing to build buzz around this new line of clothing is having a gentleman named J.P. Williams, who a the co-founder of design mw.

modle the new stuff.  I had never hear of Mr. Williams before reading this post, but as the picture below (as well as those in the GQ post) will show is that he is the perfect guy to show this stuff off.

Why do I say that Mr. Williams is the perfect guy to show this stuff off?  Because, not only does the clothing look good on Williams, which is something that could be said of many other men; he’s the right age and build.  Putting these clothes on a middle aged slim guy who has found a great deal of success in the design field will make the clothing more appealing to that demographic.  And lets face it… with what Jack Spade charges for their stuff that is really the only demographic that will be able to afford such fine things.

As I was wandering about the web today I found this very nice, and very short, article over at Valet.  I thought that I’d do what I can to pass along the great information that can be found here in regards to layering up clothing, which is something I suspect many people will be doing now that the fall has officially arrived.

while fall is a season of earth tones, the key is to introduce an element of color or texture—a bright, crisp shirt peeking out under a sweater, a pop of sock in a surprising hue, or a bold knit layered under a tweed jacket.
