I really appreciate raingear making a comeback in #menswear. While you may be shaking your head at your screen, remind yourself that the Cool Teens on the L train (who you’re afraid of) were not wearing anoraks two years ago. I always recommend making a statement with your outerwear and today is no different. Sure you can own a dark raincoat when it actually pours, but pull out a colored or printed jacket to flex. I decided to pair this baby blue joint from Stutterheim with a buisness casual/holiday party look since it is tis the season. (lol I don’t really know what business casual is.) Since you’re still reading (hopefully) I also highly suggest opting for the oversized knits this season to keep you warm while also accunating that you’re getting thicc for winter.

It’s that time of year again to officially start switching up your closet. (Bless your heart if you a space big enough to keep all of your stuff in one place all year round.) Before bringing back all my winter gear, I decided to go through it all to either keep, donate, or edit. I’ve made note of this before, but if you’re on a budget (turn up for fiscal responsibility!) then altering your clothes is much easier than going out and getting new stuff. That being said, I grabbed a pair of scissors and started cropping some sweaters. Drawing inspiration from Yeezy Season, I wanted to go for that unfinished look. I can’t tell you exactly where to cut because it depends on your body type and how bold you want to be. I can tell you ,however, that these look great with longer shirts underneath. Since I’m on the shorter side, I get the illusion of having a torso for once. It may not be for everybody, but might as well try to rock the crop at least once.

And just like that we’re back to my dandy phase. I joked about it a couple weeks ago on Instagram, but I don’t see anything wrong with flexing that peacock muscle. (In moderation, of course.) While I traded my bow ties for bucket hats a long time ago, I still think casual dressing can still be elevated. (I hate the word btw.) I based my look around this amazing cardigan because…cmon. Think Richie Cunningham with the swagger of The Fonz. That being said, I paired the sweater with a patterned shirt to give the look some depth. Also added some mustard chinos because #FallAesthic and these Timberland dress boots that I’ve been wearing almost everyday since they go with almost anything. (Also they have a side zip which makes getting dressed v. easy before 9am.) Lesson of the day: wear what you want, you’ll be aight.


Mastering The Classics

how to wear a shearling coat

When I describe my style, the word “classic” doesn’t tend to come to mind. That being said, when you see a look come through year after year there must be some weight to it, right? I teamed up once again with Timberland to share a timeless Autumn look with y’all. Again, “simple” is not a word I associate with myself, but sometimes that’s all you need for a solid fit. The jacket reminds me of a vintage shearling number you steal from your grandpa’s closet so I decided to pair it with a basic white tee and some worn in denim. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned how having a good pair of go to boots will change your life in every post in the past two months and this one wil be no exception. I mean the color on these can only be described in “100″ and wave emojis.
