Jeff Lahens, men’s style curator at DressCode Boston
The man who styled the evening’s male models could have walked the runway himself. He wore a Reiss two-button suit and coral scarf with pieces from his own closet, including a Misura shirt of his own design, Allen Edmonds boots, and his favorite vintage glasses.
Jeff has a true appreciation for the classics: “I always admired the way my dad and my uncles dressed.”
His style in a handful of words? Personal, functional, effortless, uplifting, trend-proof, and dress-code-appropriate.
This designer and stylist’s list of spring staples includes reliable V-neck tees, pastel linen scarves, layering pieces like cardigans, and Tretorn shoes.
There is something about vintage fashion that sets off some chemical imbalance in my brain. This was no different when I was introduced to Psychiatrist Dr. Lightfoot’s series of vintage outerwear and accessories.
This amazing wool coat known now as The 70’s Coat, was purchased in Harvard Square for $120 in 1977. Details: 100% wool, notch lapel, double breasted with 6 leather buttons, shoulder epaulets, slash pockets, and back vent closure with 5 horn buttons.
Custom leather jacket, also known as The Shaft Jacket was purchased for $175 at Lee Imports on Newbury Street in 1978. Check out the doctor’s $30 vintage handmade carryall. He’s a bad mother…shut your mouth!
In conclusion we learned: Dr Lightfoot picked some cool names for his special clothes; $100 was a lot of dough back in the 70’s; and to maximize your wardrobe ROI you should invest in quality timeless fashion. Thank you Dr. Lightfoot.
