Fall Fashion File: A.P.C.

Posted in fashion by Alastair on September 24, 2010

I recently came across a blog post stating that my profession apparently has a uniform. There’s variation within the profession, as one might expect. However, I was unaware of this so-called uniform. One might say I have my own personal “uniform,” but I also imagine it’s far and away from the “business intelligent” this blogger was referring to.  What is business intelligent? In any case, feeling a little self conscious about my “look” and wanting to update my wardrobe, I started perusing the web looking for something new. Honestly, I could use a little variation. Blues, greys, and blacks, though in many shades they come, only get you so far. I thought these examples from the A.P.C. Mens / Autumn 11 Collection might fulfill the “business intelligent” uniform while also keeping in tune with my own personal “uniform.” The French seem to do it so casually, but yet so intelligently. And the French ready-to-wear company A.P.C. (or ‘Atelier de Production et de Création’) has become one of my favorite brands. Founded in 1988, A.P.C. has become known for  its clean-cut and minimalist nature, as well as simple, chic, and modern design.

    Would you dare to wear argyle on anything other than socks, Alastair?

    Love, love, love the coat in the top picture. Perhaps, now that I think about it, because it reminds me of my own APC winter coat.
