Looking Good in Layers

Club Monaco manager Sean Frazier creates dapper, preppy appeal with Northwest-ready layering pieces.

WHY WE LOVE THE LOOK:
When in doubt, put on another layer. That is style dogma according to Frazier, who layers (multiple) timeless, classic men’s silhouettes at a time to suit life in all-over-the-map Northwest temps.

“I’m drawn to anything I see that has the potential to go over, under, around or with other pieces, like long, elegant scarves or a cotton blazer worn as a jacket,” the Capitol Hill resident says. The result is gentlemanly with an added ounce of the debonair, pulling in hip-again pocket squares and ’60s-esque eye bobs. Or, the long and lanky style blogger often rolls up his favorite skinny jeans above the ankle to show off a pair of mod striped socks.

THE ENSEMBLE:
Gray and navy cotton striped T-shirt, by and from AllSaints Spitalfields; gray cable-knit button-up sweater, navy cotton blazer and tan wool/cashmere scarf, all by and from Club Monaco; The Hill-side black polka-dot pocket square, thehill-side.com; Hazelwood dark skinny jeans, Blackbird; striped black and white socks, J.Crew; vintage Allen Edmonds lace-up Oxford shoes, a Brooklyn find; brown tortoiseshell eye bobs, Blackbird.
