I pieced together some of my favorite looks from GANT Rugger’s latest 2012 Spring line entitled “Nouveau Prep“. Selectism.com makes an interesting observation in that the name doesn’t see very fitting for such an “American” brand, and that it simply should have been called “New Prep”. I dunno. Maybe it was taken…

That being said I’m rather enjoying those bright green chino’s but apparently so is everyone else because they appear to be sold out online already. Le bummer.

In a for certain “God the Wife is going to kill me” moment, I purchased this vintage Pendleton Overcoat at the AMVETS this evening. I’ve been looking for a longer overcoat for wearing over my sport jackets, and after being inspired by one of my new favorite tumblrs Broke and Bespoke, I thought I’d try my luck at the thrift shops. One of the biggest problems with second hand shops in Buffalo is you can have a difficult time finding anything that isn’t an x-large. At a 40, the coat fit surprisingly well and ever since our recent trip to O’Connell’s, I’ve been slightly obsessed with fur-collar overcoats. Certainly not for everyday use, but a very Dandy coat indeed.

Overall I was pretty happy with my purchase… especially since it was only $10 (which subsequently trumped my fear of the Wife’s wrath). It was snowing ever so slightly when I got home, so I snapped a couple of quick shots in the backyard for show. Click below for some detailed shots.

Beardski Mask

Celebrate Shaun White’s incredible Perfect 100 Score at last nights X Games by investing in one of these equally incredible Beardski Ski Masks. Yes, the bandana facemask look is cool and all, but it’s been done forever. Why not stand out on the hill a little? Made of insulated neoprene, woven thermal fleece and a “stylish” 12″ synthetic beard, this universal one-size-fits-all design securely holds the mask in place and is easy to wear/remove while covering the ears, face and neck from the harshest of elements. Certainly easier than growing the real thing, plus you won’t have to worry about the pain of getting chunks of gnar pow getting stuck in it.

Keeping with the Clue Theme, I made another corduroy bow tie today that I call “The Mr. Green”. I was finally was able to find some adjustable back sliders for the bow ties so that means Buffalo Dandy Bow Ties are one step closer to becoming a reality. Who wants one?

I created a prototype for a new Bow Tie in honor of Burger Bowl called “The Colonel Mustard“. It didn’t quite come out how I had hoped, but I still dug how it worked with this color combo, so I wore it out anyways. For now, just a sneak peek will do…

Did a test shot for Chucky Love this morning at work, so I thought I’d have some fun with it. To quote something I read this morning: “The lens flare was added because lens flares are awesome and if you disagree you are dumb.”

Mmm. Indeed.

I must tip my hat to Buffalo Rising for their exceptional Fashion Manic article this morning entitled Welcome to America. Photographer Cheryl Gorski took these amazing shots down by Buffalo’s famous Grain Elevators showcasing several looks inspired by the turn of the century. Philip Johnson accompanies these photos with a great article discussing the various clothing pieces worn by immigrants during the 17th and 18th century with impressive detail. Very, very well done Buffalo Rising. A great article that is certainly worth a read. Click below for more of my favorite looks from the article.

Another Dandy recommendation by Mr. Courtney in lieu of yesterday’s post are these handsomely rugged Wool Stormy Kromer Caps. Handmade in the U.S. for over 100 years, the original design of these caps remain unchanged since their creation in 1903. When there’s a chill in the air, simply grab the flap from behind the ears and pull down for instant lobial warmth.

$34.99
