Date Night with Alex Grant: Sixteen Candles

Welcome to N’East Style’s second “Date Night with Alex Grant“. James at Secret Forts requested that we do Sixteen Candles and of course both Skip and I jumped on the opportunity to recreate Jake Ryan’s and Samantha Baker’s wardrobes. I think we can all agree that it’s one of the best films of all time . . . and Mad Max of course (more on Max later). Skip has put together a great look that perfectly emulates Jake Ryan’s modest charm with classic madras, khakis and boat shoes. I have always loved Jake’s look.  Both confident and humble. Nothing too flashy. Works every time. The guy really knew how to dress to make the girls swoon.

Check back in tomorrow for Samantha Baker’s look.
