General Knot | Fall ’13
As I’ve said before, one of the great ironies of my life is living in Florida and my favorite season being autumn. Having spent my youth in Tennessee, I am always drawn to the fall foliage, the crisp autumn air and more than anything else, the rich tones and textures that come with autumnal attire. And while I’ve learned to go light on the layering here in a tropical climate, I’ve grown in my ability to shift from summertime shades to fall fabrics and hues in moderate yet meaningful ways. One of those is with the use of accessories, which can signify seasonal change while remaining breathable, keeping a man well ventilated.
And while global warming continues to heat things up for all of us, make good use of items like your pocket square and/or neckwear to herald the changing of the seasons. I can think of none better than the latest from General Knot.
From their founder, Andrew, “Our palette for this early Fall 13 group is warmer and more earthy than the clear, bright pop colors of summer. Tan, camel and olive set the tone while hints of old rose, goldenrod and deep French blue make for interesting accents. This collection is both jean friendly and dress appropriate. Patterns range from menswear inspired suiting checks to vegetable dye paisleys, micro dots and exploded florals. We like the mix of scale in the prints and see micro to large scale patterns as a trend going forward into the fall season.”
