I can’t even explain why this is such a gentlemen’s picture. Frame it, study it, live it. Practice what you preach boys, maybe one day you’ll become the ultimate gentleman.
For those of you who do life in freezing weather, try staple color combos in a button down/chino fashion. Navy blue is a staple (red maybe if you’re feeling oober festive), and the brown/dark khaki chinos are timeless aka a solid investment. We suggest J Crew button down with Gap Classic Slim Khakis.
For those of you how aren’t blessed enough to live in 40 - 60 degree weather around Christmas time.. I’m sorry. Just left an ice-pocalypse in Dallas (yeah, like 2 inches of pure ice all over the city) so it feel good to be back in normal weather! This time of year is perfect for button downs and shot combinations (weather permited). Gingham is the go to print, and matched with a solid pair of pleated shorts and A/O sperry top-siders, you can’t go wrong. The watch is a Michael Kors so.. lower end cheap (I did say it was casual).
Homecoming season… Let’s remember to stay classy. “Matching” your date’s dress doesn’t mean in every way possible. Girl’s colors will be more vast and multitudinous than men’s colors so when in doubt, return to simplicity: black and white with matching bow tie. To ensure you clothes are fitted be sure to exercise and eat right in preparation for the big day! A nice simple watch, is also a necessary accessory. Sleeve rolled up but it a bit more casual, and because it isn’t prom that’s perfectly okay! Have fun, try slacks or chinos… Whatever floats your boat (or at least makes it most comfortable). A happy boat is a happy homecoming.
Should we get an Instagram?
We recognize that when in doubt, return to antiquity. Nothing better than a 1964 Ford Mustang. The girls will go crazy, and your brother will go green with envy. Horsepower and sex-appeal have never been so close knit. While the newer mustangs seem to be symbolic of a Guido’s paycheck badly spent… the older, more classic versions grow more and more appetizing and stunning. Words cannot convey the essence of luxury exuded by this particular vehicle.
We always make her feel like she’s the most beautiful girl in the world…. always. When she is with you, she will feel like she is on cloud9. While we don’t fall in love often, when we fall, we fall hard. Every broken heart we get, is one less phone number on the phone books. We are quick to pick up a chick, but it takes time for us to make her our lady. Patience is a virtue. Do not rush into anything… make that if you are going to fall you know where you’re landing.
Simple wrist jazz. A gold Michael kors watch ($250) with a nautical styles Nylan watch band ($7) and a silver custom boating band ($20). Add a pair of ray ban wayfarers ($225) and you are undefeat-able.
Literature is key. If becoming a gentleman is your goal let GQ be your guide. Nothing else to say….
What to say, what to say… preppy corporate. Want this look? H&M offers a similar maroon fitted blazer for about $125, pants could be purchased as Gap Fitted Khakis or Banana Republic Chinos for $60, and a nice pair of steve madden or Sebagos from Nordstrom or Saks Fifth for about $110. Button down from Express ($55), tie from Michael Kors ($45), and why not throw in a Ted Baker pocket square ($40). Affordable, composed of a multitude of staples. You just can’t go wrong.
