Denim Debate

The week with the gentlemen of Men of Habit continues as we caught up with Dennis and Woody on the northwest corner of Princeton's campus.

What they love: though tired of the combination of denim and tailored clothing, we adore these RRL buckle-backs, immensely closer to the fabric’s roots in work-wear. We felt it only more irreverent to play up the contrasts by substituting the traditional charcoal flannels from this Oxford University look with the raw, red-cast indigo. This black watch duffle is great because the pattern is bold and beautiful without being obnoxious. Pairing it with holiday-friendly burgundies and reds makes for a season appropriate ensemble, though we wouldn’t advise wearing velvet slippers for a walk longer than one across campus.
