    @andrewsnavely:disqus, How about a pic of the whole getup, or something similar on someone at the end of each of these? Just a thought. Easier to visualize it in real life. Either way, “The Getup” has changed my style choices on numerous occasions, so thanks!

      If you buy all of the items for him, I’m sure he would comply!

    Another great get up. Only thing I’m not on board with is socks + boat shoes.

    Great Getup, but is sweater season over yet? It’s mid-May. Not sure I want to buy something that I’ll wear once and then store away until September.

      It’s 56 degrees in New York right now, some folks haven’t hit summer yet. 🙂

        I’m in Boston, I know what you mean! I’m tired of this weather. Maybe I just don’t want to be reminded of the cold :-).

        Wow, it’s 81 at 10 at night here in Tampa.

  • Johdus

    I often like most pairings on the Get Up.
    But socks and boat shoes? (shudder)

    • Andrew

      Obviously not if you’re wearing shorts, but absolutely ok (if you’re not against it already). They become more aligned with loafers in that way.

        I think boat shoes are too aspirational a style to be dressed up as loafers. They’re meant to convey the image of a “boat person;” socks directly contradict this message by conveying that you’re just wearing them because they’re leather slip-ons. It would be like taking a Rolex Explorer II, which says you’re an “adventure person,” and putting it on a thin lizard skin strap to “dress it up.” It doesn’t work because it defeats the message of the piece. It’s easier to dress down a simple dress watch on a NATO or to wear loafers sockless with shorts than it is to dress up a utilitarian item with a specific purpose, IMO.

        But I’m just trying to justify why I don’t like the look. Maybe it’s just a taste thing.

    Nice outfit, I love the way the sweater looks. Hey Andrew, can you make a getup to wear on a girlfriend’s or wife’s birthday?

  • TJ

    I like the look of that watch. It would be a nice casual alternative to my timex weekender.
