    This outfit is awesome, so casual but also worth of a night out when changing from the V neck to the shirt!

    Great style and color scheme. I just can’t get into the cable cardigan thing, though, as much as I love ribbed, solid, or heathered versions.

    PLEEEEEEEASE do one for New York! I’m heading there in a month for Halloween weekend!

      This looks like it would work in NYC too, or anywhere for that matter. Just imagine the title of the Getup changed to NYC and you’re set.

    Great outfit! What’s the fit on the John Ashford flannel like? Thanks Andrew!

    Paying $220 for a nice used pair of Allen Edmonds, yah no prob…. but for sneakers I cant do it. Any alternatives to those New balance shoes?

      This post was sponsored by New Balance, so they recommend the $220 NB, and alternatives can be any shoe you want, as long as it’s NB.

      Seriously though, I’d wear chukka boots.

    Love the outfit minus the cardigan. Save that for your Grandpa and memory of Mr Rogers.

    OK. I ordered some of these flannel shirts in a few colors. The one above feels exceptional, but I feel the color is kind of grungy looking and doesn’t really stand out.. or I could be wrong? Deciding if it’s formal and not grungy enough to keep.

    They are soo soft! Slimmer fitting and longish. Great quality. I got a small which is a larger size of small.

    Thanks for the recommendations as usual.. great picks.

    Great colors has a real SF feel to it…definitely need the sneakers for walking up and down the hills. Those NBs are too pricey I would go with the classic 574 or the Jcrew NB
