Ever had the infamous blanket conundrum? On is too hot, off is too cold. I usually go half on, half off. When it comes to fall, it isn’t cold enough or hot enough outside so I guess the solution is to wear a hoodie with shorts. Make sense?
It isn’t hard to look dapper in menswear pieces that are usually called ‘sloppy’. Materials and details make all the difference.
Muted colors are great for colder weather. Switch black for grey and a lighter blue for navy topwear. Here I am looking for sea creatures, in a lake. I did find some shells, which I promptly made a necklace out of. That’s what wearing shorts makes you do.
A polo shirt is simply the ultimate smart-casual menswear piece. Technical lightweight fabrics keep you feeling and looking cool. Make sure to get a clean one, or one with just a small logo. Keep it low-key, fam. As always, fit is important so make sure that the sleeves end mid-bicep, and never ever pop that collar. Wear it wrong and you could look like a retired golfer, or John Mayer circa ’05.
Aw, hell no.
While I do not know much about golf, I do know that anything with a shearling lining is amazingly comfy and warm, even more so when applied to a laidback piece like a hoodie. It’s a great contrasting visual detail too! This hoodie from Nautica has all that and makes me want to live in it.
Tortoiseshell frames are classic and look good on anyone. These are slightly larger than the normal silhouette, but that keyhole nose bridge does it for me. And I did find shells, see.
