What a great timeless picture of the Kennedy's! They would've fit right in with today's Trad/Preppy style. Just like Shawn Stussy said this looks like a J. Crew ad from their new catalog. Who would've known that 60's trad style would come back around full force like that! Look at Robert Kennedy's grey on grey look so 2010!
I found my Fall jacket @ Bloomingdales.com from my favorite designer Mr. Ralph Lauren of course! This quilted olive Car Coat with suede shoulder trim and suede elbow patches along with a corduroy collar is so perfectly done. Available now @ Bloomingdales.com for $450.
Emily Blunt adorns the cover of ELLE UK's September 2010 Issue in a beautiful lace number. She has two upcoming movie releases "The Adjustment Bureau" co-starring with Matt Damon and "Gulliver's Travels" co-starring with Jack Black. ELLE UK's September Issue releases on August 4th so make sure you go out and get it. Special thanks to Tom Macklin from ELLE UK for the cover image and info!

Here are three new designs from Clarks Originals for their Desert Boots that really caught my attention especially the first pair with the UK flag. The charcoal striped grey wool desert boots are also very attractive. They are all available now @ Clarks.co.uk.
Here are some nice looks from Filippa K Fall/Winter 2010 Lookbook. Nothing groundbreaking but nice and clean looks. Then again who really is creating groundbreaking menswear? A lot of men out there are scared to test the limits of what can or cannot be pulled off so in turn a lot of these designers just go with the flow of menswear's simplistic nature. Don't get me wrong though I do like the simple clean look too without all the big branding logos all over it. I think a perfect piece with no branding allows the quality fabric, design and cut be the forefront of the piece. The logo branding tends to demand most of the attention.

Wow this is ironic, another actor/actress being featured in a fashion ad! This time it's Zoe Saldana from Avatar fame in the new Calvin Klein Envy Collection which consists of 5 different bras. These images came out really well!
This Gant Rugger Navy Sport Coat has a lot of nice details including a contrast stitch on the lapel and beautiful gold Gant crest buttons. Two-button sport coats are pretty rare these days. Every sport coat that I come across it always has three buttons. Although my favorite is the one-button sport coat. Available now @ Blackbirdballard.com for $495.
Well it's no secret that Filson is known for making extremely well-made bags but this Rucksack just really caught my attention. It looks like it is part of Burberry Prorsum's new Fall/Winter collection in dark tan with chocolate brown leather details. It's rucksack cotton canvas is also waterproof as well and it will eventually wear beautifully as it ages. Available now @ BlackBirdBallard.com for $260.
