If you’re smart then you’re probably hitting the gym to prep for the summer ahead. If you’re smarter then you’re still coolin’ and relying on that sweater weather body. While I do enjoy a skinny jean moment, I’m 10x more comfortable in an oversized trouser. (Literally slouchy trousers are acceptable sweatpants.) When going oversized you want to make sure that your proportions work. Looking like you’re swimming in your clothes is kind of cool. Looking like you don’t know how to purchase clothes in your size isn’t.

Cheating On Your Jackets

I’m not one to glorify adultery because it’s on of the Ten Commandments or whatever, but too much of one thing gets boring. (Amirite?) While your bombers and denim jackets will always be ride-or-dies there’s nothing wrong experimenting with something new. When it comes to thinking outside the sartorial box I’ve been into repurposing my heavy flannels and throwing them on top of whatever. Very 90s, very “trendy.” (Wait didn’t I do this last week?) Essentially what I’m trying to say here is why not experiment with your layerage slayage before it gets too hot too function.

How To Wear Double Denim

I’m no stranger to the Canadian Tuxedo. Β I’m also no stranger to a distressed denim moment (Exhibit A, B, & C). All that being said I decided to mix both of these trends in this post. If you’re doing double denim look you want to aim for Kanye in FourFiveSecondsΒ and not Justin Timberlake at the 2001 AMAs. To do so, Β you’ll need an outfit buffer to separate the jean on jean material like this simple sweatshirt. As far as accessories, you can’t go wrong with a great pair of boots and a hat. (A beanie can also suffice if you’re in the right climate.) And there you have it, the secret to achieving the perfect urban cowboy look.

Raining Hundreds

I believe it was the great Jon Moy who said wearing white sneakers equates to wealth. I’d like to echo this sentiment and add on that wearing said coked out kicks in the rain sky rockets your sartorial net worth exponentially. Dressing for inclement weather when it’s warm out can be a hassle. I personally don’t own a trench coat because I don’t need to look like Inspector Gadget or a flasher in a movies set in New York during the late 80s/early 90s. If you’re looking to deflect rain drops, a simple jacket like this in a bold color goes a long way.
