Beautiful Coat, Hot Day

When I approached this lady about her wonderful look she told me that she was 75 and that she hoped I would tell young people to dress nicely. Briana and I asked her a few questions about her style inspiration and she answered, “I don’t go by style, I go by what’s comfortable and what looks good on me. Young people ask me where I got my coat and I tell them its 100 yrs old, all my clothes are from the 70s!”

It would be awesome to see today’s youth all dressed up like this, in fact I’ll have to go out and buy a new suit and hat!


I spotted this lady from across the square and knew she would be perfect for the site. Her beautiful hat was laying near her, so I asked if she might put it on for a photo. She let me know that she was from Munich and that her hat was a present from Tiffany’s. She looks so charming with her patterned yellow scarf and lovely outfit.

Reader Submission (Rachel’s Grandpas)

We are very excited to have received our first few reader submitted photos. Rachel Wianecki from Seattle sent us some pictures of her stylish grandpas.

She said that, “Bob(seen above) is way into is seasonal garb (frowns upon those who wear dark colors in the summer time). He has an extensive hat collection (100’s of hats) and at 90 years old still dresses it up everyday to look good for the ladies.

He looks great in his matching shirt and suspenders!

Rachel also let us know that, “Eddie LOVES his pantsuit big time and wears it almost everyday.”

One of the things that is so interesting about advanced style is the consistency and confidence that comes with a developed fashion sense.Many of the people I have talked to have worn the same coat for 25 years or have had their favorite hat “forever”. These pieces hold special memories for their owners and often times look better than contemporary ones.
