I’ve been seeing short sets on the men’s market for awhile now, but trying to find one that wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg or finding one in general in Kentucky was like finding a needle in a hay stack, literally. That is until Kennington reached out to me in regards to their latest collection, in which I found this gorgeous paisley shirt and upon further review discovered they had a matching pair of shorts. With The Kentucky Derby just a few weeks away I knew this would be perfect for this time of year in Kentucky! It’s definitely different, especially for Kentucky, but it’s a fun take on a classic Derby look.

Kennington Ltd., Inc. was established by Stan Tendler in 1957 in Los Angeles, California, in his parent’s garage near La Brea and Beverly Boulevards. It was an unremarkable beginning for a company that would go on to become a West Coast fashion industry force. I love the laid back vibe of their So Cal collection, and I’m sure you will too.

Stylishly Yours,

  • Definitely different for here in KY – I couldn’t pull it off, but I like the look!

    • Thank you! I wore it to a fashion show on Thursday, and I got several of those same comments. It’s fun stepping outside the box sometimes.

  • Robin

    You look very cool!
