If we’re keeping 100, I probably wear hoodies all year long. (Yes, including in the summer because I have no idea what chill is or a basic understanding of weather.) I’m sure another site will tell you different, but I think a good hooded sweatshirt is a staple in every dude’s wardrobe, even if he’s not into streetwear. One major tip I can share on this topic is that your regular gym hoodie should NEVER be the same as your outfit hoodie. (That’s just nasty.) You really can’t go wrong with a heather gray piece. It’s classic and much like the one I’m wearing in this post, they can even be hella elevated. (I hate that word btw.) Go ‘head and splurge on a nice hoodie for yourself, it not just for hypebeasts and cozy boys anymore.
I’ve been interested in getting a longline bomber jacket for a while now. The only people I’ve ever seen pull it off are the teens on the subway and European ”Instagram models.” (Coincidentally enough both groups always pair them with Yeezy boosts, not sure if there’s a correlation there.) I decided to just go for it and if it didn’t fit at least I’d be able to use it as a sleeping bag. Since I’m on the shorter side, I really wanted to I wanted to exaggerate the oversized silhouette. Screw whatever some of these men’s mags tell you about not wearing baggy clothes if you’re on the small side. Personally, I think it helps disguise the length of your torso. For color, I suggest keeping your tones as neutral as Switzerland claims to be. There’s a lot of proportion play going on here so it’s always best to keep everything simple and clean.

I have several sartorial allegiances. By glancing at the blog you can tell those include: my commitment to wearing hats 95% of the time, dedication to a cozy boy lifestyle and finally my love of monochromatic outfits. As for the last part if I’m not in all black I tend to be in all blue even though I just discovered how wonderful camel looks on my skin tone. (More on the latter in another post.) I’ve mentioned it time and time again, but the key to nailing this look is making sure your hues work with each other and doesn’t look like you tried to go with one tone and you missed the nail on the head. For this specific look, I added to white accents to make it look a little lighter. It also doesn’t hurt that I’m dressed like I belong in a Gentry lookbook.
Think I touched upon it for a hot sec last year, but I need everyone to allow love and light into their lives and get themselves a turtleneck. Besides being a clutch look for a secret agent, it’s also hella practical for the average dude. I’d be lying if I said I new what business casual actually meant since I work in the creative industry, but I think this is pretty close. The silouette lends itself to repace the average button up and is much sleeker than the run-of-the-mill crewneck. I think every guy should own own in black and gray, but if you’re really about this life then pick up a good brown, emerald, navy, or camel.
