  1. Really great pictures, James, as always.
    I’m wondering what the brass figure eight ring in the back pocket is–I didn’t see it listed in the description below the pictures. (My apologies if I overlooked it.)

    HI James,

    Whats the brass key hook and where is it from ?

  3. Rawson says:

    James, where do you buy your laces for the Vans from? I love the LL Bean style but can never seem to find ones that fit Vans well – the ones I find are usually too long. Thanks!

      You can find them most anywhere. Cut em and put a lighter to the ends. Vans actually laced these up with em. I suppose somewhere there looks at a few menswear blogs….

    Love the crotch patch on the 3sixteens

    Just a couple of questions. Do you wear your buttoned shirts buttoned all the way to the neck and do you wear your baseball caps flat-brimmed or with a slight curve?

    Always look forward to the head-to-toes and it’s been a great inspiration to me. I don’t complain about the cold here (in Ontario, Canada) because it’s just another opportunity to be creative with my layering and outerwear…I’ve recently picked up a number of different coats and am getting ample opportunity to rotate them and co-ordinate them with whatever I’m wearing on a certain day.

    The key chain is J Crew item number 61888. You can order it through the J Crew personal shoppers.

    I’ve been looking through a ton of blogs for some inspiration as to how I want to go about doing daily shoots on my new blog (graduateyourgame.com). I really like the way you don’t just stand in front of a camera and point out what you’re wearing. The shots are really cool and I will definitely be incorporating these types of shot in my upcoming posts. Great work Forts.
