So yesterday on my lunch break I threw my hands up to my head and sighed, "Agh, what are these pants?" and grabbed a pair of scissors. No, it wasn't that dramatic, but I did decide that my black jeans needed a change I'd been contemplating for awhile - the anti-cuff! I can't quite remember where I first saw this, but The Sartorialist shot a young guy with hacked-off hems as part of his fall shopping series and I was re-inspired. Et Voila! That guy was wearing the look with crepe-soled black leather boots, but I decided to pair my newly altered jeans with dress oxfords for a look I like to imagine was very "French." C'est possible?
Have you been following Le Sartorialiste's fall shopping series? Or where else are you getting your inspiration? I like that Scott Schuman's giving us lots of ideas and no judgment, good combo. Now get out your scissors!
