Why isn’t there a link to buy cash?
This seems like a massive oversight.
*insert snarky political comment here*
If you are going out for a concert and drinks, why not wear a suit?
Depends on the concert. You’d be a little out of place for most modern music.
Unless it’s to see the philharmonic orchestra I feel a suit would be over doing it a little. This is something that would work well for checking out the local music scene on a friday night.
Wow, the first getup where I actually own everything mentioned (or a very similar version). Woot
Same here. Love to see more like this in the future.
The fit of those pants seems great, but I am not a fan of the jean-like stitching. Can anyone suggest an alternative pant with a similar fit that might be more suitable for wearing around the work place?
Try the Levis 514′s twill pants.
For a bar scene with rock/ country this is fine. May I recommend future get ups with emphasis on other music styles i.e. jazz, blues, orchestra etc. It could be topics especially once the Summer festival season starts.
Don’t forget your Droid!
Love the “Budget Friendly Alternative” feature. Can purchase the cheaper (but still very stylish) version and look forward to getting the original version. That should be included in every getup.
Andrew, any way we can get a mid-winter vacation Get Up??? For if we’re traveling somewhere warm like say…. Miami?!!?!
What color are the pants? I can’t tell if they are steelhead (dark Gray) or more a dark brown.

Often needing a light, easily packed/carried jacket I find that an old olive drab Army jacket (well, a BDU shirt technically, but it’s a heavy weight that layers well) serves the purpose excellently. It adds color while still being a fairly dark, neutral shade. If things get too hot you can always roll the sleeves up easily without hurting the look. It also pairs well with jeans so you have greater options in choosing pants. Unlike denim jackets they’re actually sized like dress shirts as well so you can get a much better fit. All this and you can find it in any surplus store and a lot of vintage/used shops for about $20.
