According to Chinese astrology I was born under the Year of the Goat, the metal goat to be exact. I don’t know what that means but Google says that makes me wise, business oriented, and good at organization/stability. (2 of 3 ain’t bad, right?) That goes all to say that I’m completely in love with this limited edition flight jacket from Alpha bearing the goat in gold. Speaking of goats and GOATS, the greatest thing in my life right now is underlayering. (I know I have a sad life, but mind your business.) In honor of the new lunar year I challenge ya’ll to play with proportions and try out a tiered look.

Classic movies are a great place to draw outfit inspiration from. When I first picked up this jacket in a random thrift store, I was immediately reminded of James Dean (not Deen) in Rebel Without A Cause. When channeling inspiration from your favorite silver screen characters you want to make sure it doesn’t get costume-y. My personal take on the look involved an oversized sweatshirt, destroyed denim and Timbs because I am not a white man in the 50′s. (Even though a Buzzfeed quiz would probably suggest it.) This look is also a great story on fluctuating weather staples. I don’t wear this red suede jacket enough but it’s one of those pieces I keep in my closet and only pull out when the time is right. (That’s what James Deen said.)
It’s a general consensus that we’re all over winter. With my mind on warmer weather, it’s time to do some shopping for clothes that don’t have to cover my whole body due to fear of frostbite. I don’t know why I have an obsession over exposed ankles, but I won’t question it. If you’re a brave soul feel free pull these off right now with a good contrasting sock. For the more practical, can also wait it out and let those naked ankles thrive in the sun. Check out some of my favorite high waters from East Dane above.
