RE: Pea Coat

Pea CoatThere was a lot of interest surrounding the last Pea Coat post, and this shot from the Sartorialist emphasizes another important but usually forgotten point, and that is fit. This picture demonstrates exactly what to go for and that is a nice well fit look. Sizing down one is the best way to achieve this, since most men wear the wrong sizes anyway. Again, check out your local army/navy store they are sure to have a wide vartiey of sizes.

j crew spsu 10_0003J. Crew Spring/Summer 2010 is shaping up to be another great season for J.Crew with even more collaborations. One of the newest J. Crew collaborations being with Hill-Side who was featured a while back on Red Eagle Tribe. To my understanding though, these will be sold exclusively online and through the J.Crew Liquour Store located in New York. J.Crew will also be adding a full line of work wear chambray shirts, in a variety of colors , including a red chambray(above)  that I am putting on my list.

Elquist will be launching his new and highly anticipated collection in the early months of 2010, that is sure to be timeless, functional and bold.

Elquist is also putting together a new bi-monthly online magazine, SIR Magazine, which is a new magazine for the mondern gentlemen that is sure to be a smash. To add even more to this kids plate he also runs by far one of the freshest blogs that I go to merging history and clothing. Take a closer look at J Elquist here.

Wool Glen Plaid Tie

Wool Glen Plaid Tie

With winter brings wool… and wool ties.  Obviously wool ties can not bring you warmth but there is something about their texture and colors that just blend well with the fall. The textures and colors of winter wools bring to mind how the English wear tweed suits as camouflage for hunting during the winter.  Here we have a Grey Wool Glen Plaid that I finished up pretty recently, and goes great with a white oxford.

JCrew/Belstaff

J.Crew seems to keep adding to their growing number of Belstaff items by the day. The other day, the jacket that truly caught my eye was the Belstaff S. Icon Racing Jacket. It seems to be a play by play replica of the exact jacket that Steve Mcqueen use to race in back in the day. Notice in the two pictures they both have a slanted left chest pocket and the American Flag over the left pocket. This is one heck of a jacket. Extremely durable and waterproof, this jacket is strong enough for the roughest offroad experience.  Check it out here.

Rugby Tweed Tie

Ties-NewburyFall and winter always seem to bring me a need for tweed. Rugby has a great line of tweed pants, jackets and ties this winter. My personal favorite from all of Ruby’s tweed items is this tweed tie. It seems to be made from a houndstooth tweed with red tacers. This tie is super casual and probably belongs at the foothills of the English Countryside.

Shawls

Another Mcqueen favorite that is seeing a  re-emergence this winter is the shawl cardigan. This winter every major label seems to have some sort of shawl cardigan throwback. This classic sweater is noted with a rolled neck line, is being reworked with a slimmer, more modern look than the old square cardigans. Check out the shawl cardigan below here.

J. Crew Belstaff Bomber

J. Crew Belstaff Bomber

Not only do I love a great leather bomber jacket, but a beautiful Betsy in a great bomber jacket is just picture perfect! Belstaff, who I mentioned earlier in the Benjamin Button post, has a select few items now avaliable at J. Crew for both men and women. The price tag is a little heavy Bestys’ but the look is great, so check your local vintage store for more price friendly option. Check the J. Crew Bomber out here.

Winter Caps

Beams Plus Winter Cap

Another essential for these upcoming winter months is a warm winter cap. This cable winter cap by Beams Plus looks warm enough to keep an Artic Sailor’s head warm during the winter, which is always a plus. I am lucky enough to have a sister who knits and makes amazing warm winter caps, and that is where I will be acquiring my winter cap. So be on the lookout for that winter cap when it comes my way.

It seems anywhere you go today, you can see the reemergence of the famous ray ban wayfarer on everyone’s face. I like the shape of the wayfarer, but the use of the ray bans have been a bit over saturated. Persol, famous for outfitting Steve Mcqueen, have their own twist to the classic wayfarer in a few classic color ways. The Persol 2869s has a great classic shape that you will not find everyone else wearing. These pictures shown here are the 2869s in the Light Havana colorway. Check the rest of the colorways out here.

8324_831125136450_4905845_51074919_1389631_nSo last Friday night BLVD Magazine held their Fashion Night Out. The event was held at Georgia Traditions, and it was a great showing. Styles and clothes were featured from local Athens stores, and somehow one of my ties made it into the show! Chris Grimmet rocked this fresh out with boots, white jeans, blue dress shirt, green trench coat, and the my navy wool tie that was featured previously on this blog. Check it out!

Pendleton Blankets

Posted in Style by redeagletribe on October 2, 2009

PendletonBlanket

It is about time to start gearing up for winter, and everyone needs a good blanket. A blanket is one of those utilitarian objects that can be readily used during the cold winter months. One of the best quality blankets that I have run across is Pendleton Woolen Mills blankets. Made out of a thick pure virgin wool, this blanket will keep you warm in the coldest of camping trips. One of the things that first brought my attention to the Pendleton Blankets were there line of Native American inspired blankets. Maybe its part of my Indian Heritage, but I have always enjoyed Native American arts and designs, especially the old Indian saddle blankets. This type of blankets use to be worn over the back of a Native American horse which displayed usually some sort of artwork. Pendleton also has a line of Native American blankets, which donates proceeds to the American Indian College Fund. Very cool.
