Had a great Memorial Day weekend and finally got a chance to rest and connect with friends and family. I also decided it was time to start accessorizing for the summer. I'm not a flashy guy but I do think that adding a little wrist candy whether it be a leather bracelet or some silver goes a long way in expressing individual style. I wouldn't mine investing in something a little more high-end that can become my signature piece for a few years.
I must admit that I too have been influenced by the injection of european and british style into modern American menswear these days. I've been subtly incorporating certain pieces and looks into my own personal wardrobe. I can't say I'm all double cuffs, breasts and wide knit ties yet but I can still appreciate quality fabric, tailoring, and attention to detail. I recently picked up this polo shirt on sale by Corneliani CC Collection and it hit all the right notes. I wasn't sure if I could pull off the cutaway collar but after slipping it on I was a little ashamed I hadn't tried it sooner. I guess you can call me pretty late to the party. This beauty will definitely be in rotation this summer.

I've always been inspired by vintage photography because of the way it captures that certain vibe of a time and place. I stumbled upon Anthony Catalano's flickr stream and was completely blown away. I think you could literally make a movie out of the photo's he has taken especially during his teen years growing up on the east coast in the 70's.
