This Sunday was the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Buffalo, and while the day is usually reserved for getting drunk in a green shirt, others use it to showcase their Dandiest outfits to pay homage to their heritage. Click the jump below to view some of my favorite looks from the Parade and one hungover French Bulldog.

Nick from Great Lakes Prep was so kind to interview me for his blog from across the lake. In the article I talk about things like why I started Buffalo Dandy, what inspires me, and some tips for those looking to start a blog. Thanks again Nick and GLP, I was greatly honored for the opportunity and had a blast doing it.

While you’re there, be sure to check out the rest of Nick’s blog for some great articles as well as a great idea he had called the Brand Bracket, where readers vote on their favorite preppy brands.

Not just holiday specific, the green belt is pretty much a declaration that Spring has arrived. Yet another accessory that can be an understated pop of color, I’ve been noticing green belts popping up more and more in stores. For maximum impact, I like matching mine with a darker shade of denim, or even navy chinos. I’ve select a few options that are both available in stores as well as online.


Target Merona Men’s Belt $15


Lands End Elastic Cord Braid Belt $50


Kiel James Patrick Croffix Sailing Belt $88

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, it’s never too late to acquire some green accessories to complete your outfit. This green leather hook bracelet from Miansai is a bit more understated than say those shamrock sunglasses you bought for $10 last year, but at least you’ll be able to wear it year-round. Thanks for the link, Cole.

Where can I find a nice, on the cheapish side, pair of chukkas? I really like the vintage look of these boots and how they look nicer with the more wear they get.

-Emmett

Thanks for writing Emmett. Chukkas (or Dessert Boots) are tricky. It seems like you can find them just about everywhere these days, but you have to be careful because you really only get what you pay for. Target has a cheap pair for only $40, but I saw them in the store and also read a review online that said they are really cheaply constructed and fall apart easy, thus negating the whole “nicer with more wear” thing. For my money, Clarks have always been the gold standard. DSW has a nice pair for $70, and everywhere else seems to charge $100 or more for similar pairs. They require some breaking in, but they should last quite a while. Red Wing also makes some really nice ones, but they will cost a bit more, ranging anywhere from $160-$240+. Hope this helps. Thanks for ready, and stay Dandy.

The weather can’t seem to make up it’s mind today but I’m heading out regardless to brave the elements with my with my new Seersucker Bow Tie from The Tie Bar and Lands’ End Vest I purchased the other day for the ridiculous clearance price of $15.

I decided to add a little splash of color to the wingtips with these awesome laces from hook + ALBERT. Such a simple idea for something so small and often overlooked. Available in a variety of colors, these are a must have accessory for any Dandy.

$14.00

I’m not sure if it’s because of our recent trip to see Les Mis or the changing seasons that has me wanting a lighter weight scarf, but this Antique Printed Flag Scarf from John Varvatos is pretty bad ass. This Modal and Silk scarf has just the right mix of ‘Merica loving enthusiasm and “yeah, I’ve been through some stuff” distressing. The only thing that isn’t bad ass is the steep price tag. I want it, just not sure I want it that bad.

$228
