    Can’t wear this getup in 85 degree Texas weather. How bout a southern spring getup to go with this one?

    • Lenn

      Just leave the sweater and the jacket and you should be fine.. ;)

      Noah,

      British khaki shorts, the low version of the moc, and a similarly striped polo.If a color, pattern, or texture combination works, it should work in other creations like with hot weather wear. Just apply it to what you have, or where you live.

      • Mike Wheat

        do you have links to share with that?

        • http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew

          Yep, the items should be clickable.

          • Mike Wheat

            thanks, the links werent working on my other computer.

      • Noah

        awesome thanks Andrew

    I’d like to say that Flint & Tinder have been THE most comfortable pair of boxer briefs I have worn. While my comparison base is small I never remember I’m wearing them, and that’s the way it should be; in my opinion. That is with the longer ones, the shorter ones I had issues though they might be alright for someone else. I got one of each to try.

    Love this get up, it would be awesome if you guys did get ups of different regions for the same season.

      Will do!

    I would love to see some getups to deal with sweltering Southern summers. I just moved to Middle Tennessee last year from Seattle and need some help adjusting.

    • http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew

      Sweltering summer!? It’s only April 2nd! ;)

      • http://www.facebook.com/wskimberly Scott Kimberly

        I was thinking prospectively! That being said, as someone coming from Seattle to Middle Tennessee, early April already feels sweltering.

  • Tom

    I like that sweater, but wouldn’t the oxford go better with a v-neck?

    • http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew

      A v neck would look great, the crew neck makes it more casual.

      • Tom

        Waaaay late posting, but it got warm and last night was the first night it was cool enough for me to break out this sweater. I have to admit I was a doubter on the crew neck…but this knocked it out of the park. White collared shirt underneath, sleeves pulled halfway up the forearm and cuffs folded under…got a ton of compliments and I didn’t even go somewhere that was that crowded.

  • Lucas

    Does anyone have that field jacket and know how it is in person? I’ve been looking for a field jacket and this looks like an affordable option.

    • ChrisReetz

      Checked in-store yesterday and couldn’t find it. Heard it fits baggy, but would like to try in person as well.

    • Bill

      Ive had it for 2 years. Unfortunately I bought it at a higher price, but I love it and wear it with a lot of different outfits. Paired with dark denim it makes for a “rougher” look while still being polished. I’m 6’1″ 190lbs and bought a medium. Definitely a good buy for me.

  • ChrisReetz

    Want it. $345 for complete get-up. Taking donations today. Boots, sweater, jacket, watch… all great choices.

    Wow, this is great, and every piece is really affordable. Thanks Andrew! I love the getups. I’m getting married on Saturday and am taking my soon-to-be wife to an inn out in the Oregon wine country, so this is really well timed.

    • http://www.primermagazine.com/ Andrew

      Thank you, and congratulations!

  • Mike

    Skip the cologne for the tasting….trust me.

  • Dave

    I actually ordered that converse jacket a few weeks back but returned it because the fabric is very stiff will not look good on some one who is thin as it makes you look thinner. (Not a great look for a man):)

  • Guest

    just for the record, i bought that target jacket. Standing at 6’1, the jacket felt WAY longer then it should have, coming down to mid-thigh.

      I have this jacket too. I’m 5’11″ (6′ on a good day) and 175 lbs. I think the length works fine. I bought a medium and the sleeves were a little slim but still left room for movement. Bottom pockets are a little bigger than I like, but still a great spring jacket. Solid B on fit and style.

  • Nick

    I love how the getups always incorporate “staple” wardrobe items. Everyone has a pair of brown courds and a white oxford, and it’s totally worth buying the sweater and jacket. Great, as usual.

  • TRVPLORD

    great fit thanks, wore this with brandy colored ralph lauren ranger boots instead and it looked awesome.

  • Chris

    Boots available at JCP for $75.00 plus free shipping. There’s also a $10 off $50 floating around out there.

  • Bob Dobalina

    I’m in Texas and almost all of these seem to be for people living in MN (I used to live there, I know…) Any chance of having a dual getup? Like have this but then right under have something similar but for people living in warm climates?

    • Bob Dobalina

      Sorry, I meant to say I live in Florida, but was reading the comment below while typing :(

    These are cool getups. I want that jacket for me.
