Transitional Tones: Tan Double-Breasted Blazer

Tan: your favorite “transitional” brown.

Man. You wouldn’t know it just by reading the site, but if you’ve been keeping up elsewhere – like the podcast – you know that I’ve been traveling for the past five weeks and I’m actually finally home.

Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be home, but it does always take me a few days to settle in and get my groove back. Which is my way of saying that if we’re a little less topical than usual here today, now you know why.

In addition to planning our editorial calendar for the next month or so – those denim month stories aren’t going to write themselves – I’m using my downtime to take some of my own advice and get my closet ready for spring.

The heavier wools and tweeds are getting repositioned towards the back and the lightweight pieces like my cotton suit and linen blazers are moving to the front.

One of the best parts of this process is re-discovering old pieces, like this lightweight wool double-breasted blazer. You know already know how I feel about browns and I’m not averse to them in the spring. A light tan is a great “transitional brown.”
