Fall Looks – Steven Alan

Well, we’ve just come off a weekend where it has legitimately felt like fall… It was in the upper 50s in Chicago, and the South saw some cooler temps (even got into the 40s down in Huntsville, AL!). And it’s also starting to get darker a little earlier each day. So let’s continue with the fall vibes from last week and feature another look I’m digging from another brand: Steven Alan. Based in New York, Steven Alan has been able to cultivate a clean aesthetic with modern twists… and he does it well. Here’s a look I’d be happy to rock (and could, considering I own a lot of these items).


Traditional Weatherwear – Waverly Quilted Coat

New Balance – 696 Deconstructed Sneaker

Fall Looks – Huckberry

So now that Labor Day has come and gone, we’re packing away the seersucker. Some folks are putting away the white jeans (some aren’t). College football arrived in all it’s glory this past weekend, and the NFL is on it’s way in just two days. Pretty soon the leaves will be changing… blah blah blah. Fall is coming.

So here at D.o.P., I’ve decided to highlight my own personal fall style in a series of posts using single brands/online shops for each one. First off is new friend of the blog, Huckberry. For the first time in years, I’m not required to wear tailored clothing to work. I’ve been able to lean on the casual side while on the job, so Huckberry’s aesthetic lines right up with mine as of late. So without further ado, here’s a look I’d rock this fall… all courtesy of Huckberry. What from them will you be wearing this fall?

D.o.P. Travels: Boston

Oh boy, Boston is a great place! My wife and I just spent a much needed long weekend there to celebrate my birthday, and we had a great time. We had fantastic weather (until the last day when it got a lot a little toasty), so we definitely took advantage of the walkable nature of the city… and we saw a lot.

I’ve been to Boston a few times before, but the amount of history in that city gets me every time. The sites so integral to the birth of our nation are pretty much around any corner or just down the street, which is pretty damn cool if you ask me.

Favorites from the trip: Oysters and Sam Adams Colonial Ale at Union Oyster House (it’s touristy, but it’s the longest continuous running restaurant in the country and the only place you can get that beer), Mike’s Pastry in the North End (bring cash), enjoying the shade in Boston Gardens, the spanish latte at Pavement in Back Bay, and the shopping on Newbury and in Copley Square Mall.
