Supply #2 - the Kennedy

Challenge: who can see where this outfit is taken from without looking at the photo beneath?

I always tell my customers that trends are like a circle. Especially within menswear. As you might have noticed I have given in and taken the sneaker trend under my wing. I quite recently looked again at this photo on my computer and noticed that Kennedy used a very similar type back in 1962, when the photo was taken. This style is quite remarkable, and even now - 50 years later - he would be a style icon.

I saw this photo a long time ago and I looked at it with admiration and I still do. This is the reason why I chose to make the look today. Everything changes through life and so does your style, but this is something I believe is quite timeless, maybe except with some khaki trousers instead of white. 

Again I was forced to use Mr Porter as a main source. 
I never shop online, therefore I don't know a lot of websites that includes the right type of menswear at a fair price. After all, my blog is about clothing in this exact price range. Though I  eventually will find some more "appropriate" sites.
