The Getup: Hoodie, T-Shirt & Jeans

Whaaaat? It’s true. If you put a little thought into it you can look great. It’s the attention to detail that takes you from lazy to sharp.

    you can pick up some nice military duffles from the army surplus store as a substitute. they’re practically free too (compared to the price of that LL Bean)

    it’s still a bit cold here in NYC so with a hoodie i’d throw on a simple bomber style jacket too; http://kangalex.com/post/36286387085/thanksgiving-attire

      Nice. Always been a fan of the east coast leather jacket/hoodie combo. Don’t get much opportunity for it in So Cal.

    A much more polished version of the “hoodie” look. Not a fan of hands in the pockets;it does nothing for a man’s posture. They look meek, not approachable, and lacks confidence. Is it just me?

    Solid selections, Andrew. If you’re looking to step away from boots and go a bit more casual, these Vans OTW winos are a great choice. As it warms up here in LA, I’m moving towards more sneakers and away from boots. http://shop.vans.com/catalog/Vans/en_US/style/oky79p.html?categoryId=66606

      I like those!

    where are the jeans? last time i checked chinos were not classified jeans… although a slim pair of dark denim (levis 514) would do the case for this example

      Gonna have to agree here. T-shirt and Jeans does not mean T-shirt and Chinos!

      • Ree

        This is a crime against fashion!

    Great look. Love your use of color. Has inspired me in my own wardrobe.

    This is a little off topic, but I have a pale yellow cashmere blend sweater that is perfect for spring. I can’t seem to find anything to wear underneath said sweater without it showing thru, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      Go with a solid oxford button up like white, blue or gray, or wear it by itself with a pair of shorts.

      • DanPatrickFlores

        I’d also suggest a pale pink oxford if you’re feeling daring, but you can’t go wrong with a solid white oxford

      Thanks for the suggestions.

    Love Clark’s Original Desert Boot but $90? More like $119.

      It’s kind of annoying, they’re priced differently based in color and size. I used my size and at the time that’s how much they were.

    Andrew, Really enjoy your site. Nice work, dude. Here’s a challenge for you…

    What would you wear with this pair of ropers (link below)? I bought them because they look great and have a lower heel than other boots. I do wear them with jeans – and yes; I’m in Texas. But I’d like to use them in other outfits. Are they a good substitute for desert boots?

    Appreciate your help.

      I’d say you can definitely swap them in any desert boot outfit. Should work great.

    With it being so hot here in south Texas I just changed the chino pants to shorts of the same color, lost the hoodie and wore some comfy grey and blue Sperrys. I got so many compliments on the outfit! Thank you so much for the inspiration
