Tweed Run Wrap-Up

The Ralph Lauren Tweed Run was this past weekend. It was a gorgeous day in NYC; perfect for cycling and perfect for styling. My girlfriend and I decided to check out the event and check out the Rugby Store on University Place. We ran into some Occupy Wallstreet demonstrations and pressed on in style to visit the store neither of us had seen. The store is small in dimension but gigantic in style – nothing less than what you’d expect from Ralph Lauren. Here are some pics….

So we did a little, and I mean, a little shopping. I simply cannot go into a store and not buy something. It’s a problem, like for real. As a matter of fact, today i walked into the J.Crew Men’s Shop and bought a bow tie. Do I need a bow tie? Not partiularly. But I bet i need it when it’s in my closet. Anywho, I picked up a simple tan/brown striped button down, on sale might I add, and bought my girlfriend a lovely wool dress. She was really excited about the dress – because she looked so damn good in it – and excited about the store in general. Here’s a peak at the goods. Stay Clean.

Polo Rugby Tweed Run

Fitness and Fashion? Sign me up! But dont actually sign me up because i dont own a bicycle. Inspired by the British cycling event, this year the Polo Rugby Tweed Run will take place October 15 in New York. The proper attire for such an event is tweed jackets, tweed vests, newsboy and driving caps, and herringbone belts and ties. Bikers will begin in Manhattan, break for a spot of tea and crumpets, and end with a proper do in Brooklyn. That’s British slang by the way. I won’t be around for the biking but you can bet I’ll be around for the partying. The tweed run is sure to bring out a tapestry of style and has inspired these selections for your consideration.
