Say what you will about John Mayer, the man has something about him that makes him likable. If you doubt me, then explain how he’s managed to get the women he’s been with. Surprisingly, he never struck me as someone who would be into watch collecting, let alone someone who would have such an in-depth knowledge about them. In this video by Hodinkee, John sits down and discusses his watch collection which is impressive to say the least. Naturally, being a world famous musician certainly helps when amassing a collection such as this, but at least it gives the rest of us something to strive for.

As you can probably tell I’ve become quite enamored with this corduroy blazer I thifted last year but never got the chance to wear. Combined with a great vintage Briar Tie and an original pair of Stafford Wingtip Boots I managed to find on clearance, Buffalo Dandy is ready to attack Fall with a budget conscious (yet fabulous) vengeance.

Wow was this year’s Johnny Onion Ride incredible! The weather was perfect, the outfits were fantastic and the revelry was at an all time high! The ride got off to it’s usual lazy timing, as riders visited with one another, compared bikes (as well as a few baller time pieces) and posed for a few photos like the St. Germain Crew as we came to be known in our customary striped shirting. Another great touch was the decorating of the bicycles which including not only hanging onions, but also lovely bouquets, picnic setups and beverage carriers of every make and model.

Johnny-Onion-Ride

This Sunday is the Buffalo Lazy Randonneur Club’s Annual Johnny Onion Ride. Being a well known fact that Buffalo Dandy has an affinity for all things French, this English/French inspired ride is something we look forward to every year. The ride begins at the crack of Noon at Buffalo’s Naval Park and traverses along the waterfront and through the cities bike path before concluding in Delaware Park.

On this day we pay homage to AR JOHNNIGED BRO ROSKO, the pedaling peddlers of Breton’s famous Roscoff onions. Under their adopted moniker of Onion Johnny, these intrepid farmers have peddled their onions throughout Great Britain on bicycles. After crossing the channel by ferry, the Onion Johnny strings his bicycle with a hundred pounds of prized onions to sell to homes and restaurants. 

At the rides conclusion, all of the onions which have been strung to each riders bicycle will be added to the cauldron of delicious french onion soup for everyone to enjoy. As always, it’s important to look your best at these events so I’ve compile a delightfully French outfit to serve as inspiration for what to wear.

FallCords

In case cargo pants aren’t really your thing, the other wardrobe essential this Fall is the slim fitting, 5-pocket corduroy. With a lower rise, more tapered cut and a thinner wale fabric, these aren’t your grandfather’s cords. The 5-pocket design creates a more modern silhouette and with a wide variety of updated color options, you’re sure to find a pair that works for you.

Personally, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair and after an exhausting search, I believe I’ve found them in these 14-Wale Cords from Brooks Brothers ($80). Combining the perfect rise, fit, color and of course price, these have quickly become a favorite of mine and easily one of the most comfortable pair of pants I own. As per usual, we’ve selected some other top choices like The Cordster from Gant ($170), J.Crew ($75) and the always affordable H&M ($30).

Top color choices you should be looking for would be Grey, Burgundy, Navy, Army Green and of course, Brown.

PumpkinJazz

Fall is more-or-less here with all the chilly weather we’ve been having, and that means we’ve finally broken down and began purchasing Pumpkin Ale like it’s our job. There are several favorites here in the Dandy household, but Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale might be at the top of the list. It pairs perfectly with this great U.K imported Jazz In The Thirties album that we picked up last weekend at Antique World in Clarence. Fall nights don’t get much better than this…
