In the past week and a half I’ve post five different outfit on Instagram, while not writing too many posts. I did, however, get a few questions on what some of the clothes I was wearing were and where to buy them. So I thought it might be a good idea to run through those pictures and provide that requested information.
I’m still struggling with the finding the best way to give the details on things I post. Maybe a blog post on every picture? Perhaps posting everything on my ShopStyle store? Could I tweet out the details after each post? I want to keep it as simple and easy as possible. If you have any suggestions on how you would like to shop, please let me know in the comments below.
The weather around here has been pretty insane for the past month or so. It ranged from a freak nor’easter with around eight inches of snow to day in the seventies and eighties, almost back to back. What’s great about this is that my Instagram post provide a nice cross-section of spring weather clothes.
I love the collar on this shirt. It sits higher than some of my other shirts, and brings a European charm to an outfit like this. Off-white denim is a great way to stay comfortable while adding a slight sophistication.
A “Mac” is a must-have piece of clothing for any guy’s wardrobe. Generally more casual than a double-breasted trench coat, a Mackintosh is perfect for staying dry and informal. Another necessity for wet weather is a pair of solid, rain-defending shoes.
Denim is a must for me when it’s cool out. I mean, to be honest, denim is a must for me all year, but especially on cooler days. On those days when my core temperature drop any time I’m not in direct sunlight, jeans keep the chills away until the next cloud passes.
Shirt: Lacoste // Belt: Brooks Brothers (no longer available)
I love these linen-cotton chinos! I picked them up on a whim during a J. Crew sale, and I regret nothing. They’re comfortable, the fit is right, they breathe. I’ll be wearing these all summer long.
I’ve had this jacket altered several times now, and it looks like I might have to let it out again. But a classic blue blazer is one of the most important pieces of clothing an guy can own. I would suggest that it is second in its importance after only a charcoal suit.
