    So does the Henley go over or under the button down or is it completely separate?

      My guess is henley under the chambray. Pairs nicely with the tan chinos and the grey Vans.

      It goes under, this one is pretty thin.

        Love, love, love all of the getups you do. Any chance we could get a spring/summer beach wedding one? Keep it up! 😀

  • Gmoney-zero

    Dude thanks for posting this stuff and keep it up. Your articles have kept me from shopping like a clod many a time.

      Awesome! :)

    the RW 875 is the perfect casual boot

  • Ken

    I have a henley and chambray already. The “timeless” pair of chinos would be a good addition to most guy’s wardrobes.

  • Christopher Dello Russo

    I really like how you offer some cheaper alternatives for the items in the ensemble. I work on a pretty tight budget and I appreciate any chance to save a buck or two.

    Definitely keep it going with future The Getups :)

  • Amond

    Nice paring, “The Getup” is my favorite continuing post on this website.

    Thanks for doing this! I also appreciate the frugal alternatives.

  • John Jensen

    Shirt stays untucked, yes?

  • Jim

    Boy, check out that timex. Took them longer than I expected to copy wood and faulks design.

      It’s just a basic weekender.

    • Ben

      AFAIK that isnt a standard weekender strap. People throw on leather straps all the time.

  • Kyle

    The Thorogood 804 is a similar boot to those redwings if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative. They are in the $150 range I believe.

      Thanks for that! To be honest, I think I like the look of those even more than the Red Wings.

    Hey Andrew,

    It looks like you are missing your “share” icons. Would like to put this on Pinterest! Always a fan. Thanks

    The issue I have with chambray is that it often looks a bit too much like a jean shirt (like the one above REALLY looks like something my in-laws from southwest missouri would wear). I’d like to find a really nice chambray, but still worry that friends wouldn’t know the difference.

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

      Mine from 20jeans just came and it’s definitely more work shirt than jean shirt.

      I’ve got the Gap chambray as pictured above and it actually doesn’t resemble a denim shirt in person. A very nice shirt both in the fabric and fit.

      Also, sorry for the down rating, my mouse got twitchy when I tried to click on reply.

      • http://www.iamchris.ca/ Chris Jones

        No worries, and thanks for the info! :) Thinking of getting a chambray shirt from Proper Cloth :)

  • Patrick

    That bomber jacket is so out of place. Black is not a very versatile color, and It doesn’t look good with the earthy tones mentioned elsewhere in the article.

    • Someone

      Click through. The jacket is actually navy.

    • Rt1583

      It’s navy.

  • Someone

    No belt?

  • Abomber

    uniqlo is also offering the same chambray shirt at half the cost of the gap shirt. Just ordered and it is a great quality shirt.

  • stevembk

    I still don’t get how people fit into slim fit jeans/chinos.

    Wow just really suit for them who just work and look for fancy but cheaper fashion alternatives! Really nice selection!
