Sid Mashburn’s Top Five Picks for Fall
One of the few exceptions to the “trust no one” rule: Sid Mashburn. At least when it comes to
handpicking what you wear this fall. So we had a chat with him on the matter. He said some stuff. And that
stuff is written below for your body’s convenience.
FOR YOUR TORSO
These Spread-Collar Sport Shirts
Sid Says: “Flannel and plaid together epitomize fall for us—and all of them have quite
a few colors going on. There’s pretty much an option for everyone, depending on your football plans and
team allegiances.” We Say: Slowly. Calmly. Step away from the Matt Ryan jersey. You heard the man. Do it.
FOR YOUR LEGS
These Levi’s 514 Cords
Sid Says: “Again, corduroy is fall. The green is pretty fresh, but toned down a
little for cooler weather. The texture wears in beautifully.” We Say: We see you doing big things in these pants. Napping. Strolling. Post-stroll
FOR YOUR FEET
These Corona Roper Boots
Sid Says: “We’re set to open our Houston shop in early November, so we’ve been
feeling very Western lately. These are a fantastic value, and they’re a subtler take on a classic cowboy
boot.” We Say: Wear these to a cider pressing. Or to Houston in early November.
FOR YOUR V-SHAPED NECK
This Super-Fine Cashmere Sweater
Sid Says: “When you’ve said cashmere, you’ve said it all. Super-fine, super-soft,
super-classic.” We Say: He’s right, you know. No, that’s it. He’s just right.
FOR A LUCKY SOMEONE’S SHOULDERS
This Reversible Wool Wrap Cape
Sid Says: “You can channel Clint Eastwood in The Outlaw Josey Wales if you dare
to wear this yourself. Otherwise, it’s a pretty great gift for your girl... and doubles as a makeshift
picnic blanket for the two of you.” We Say: It doesn’t have to be an either-or situation.
