Nothing ever stopped me from wearing all-black in the summer, and from wearing white in the fall, nothing ever will. I love the ranch-owner elegance that pristine white pants evoke, and the rugged charm in having them carelessly scuffed up and soiled. White denim, cut old-style and paired with menswear classics, could be a great staple for early fall.

My friend Sean Hotchkiss, via Tucked Inspired, wears his fall white jeans well with tweeds and chukkas. Let me demonstrate how to wear it my way:
Put on a trim jacket to ward off the nippy air,
contrast-stitch jacket with seersucker lining by Thom Browne
and a short woolen scarf for added warmth.
vintage paisley short scarf, vintage sterling silver and moonstone spaceman pin
Cuff your jeans wide for a quick DIY nod to Thom Browne,
cuffed Levi's 501s and scuffed Florsheim longwings
and turn the volume down on your smile; you own the place.
