Like I mentioned in my most recent clothing budget post, I snagged this AWESOME velvet fedora at the iconic local men’s clothing store, Mr. Mac’s. When I got the hat home, I realized that it exactly matched my self-made obi-style belt made out of vintage ties. And that my new raspberry gingham shirt fit the color story coming together in my head… 🙂
I will most likely rewear this combo in the fall, but it’s been a very cold and rainy spring thus far. And it was a VERY comfortable outfit to wear, with my burgundy brogues.
This velvet (or velveteen?) fedora really does catch the light, doesn’t it? And yes, it was pouring down rain when we took these photos. (That explains the random spots all over the button-front shirt!) I also got quite a few compliments and questions about my tie belt during the day — it is a statement piece, isn’t it? 🙂
