These items may seem like a strange combination to you. Aren't the chinos dressier?  A cable knit sweater with a denim shirt? All of these pieces, along with the quilted bomber, create a simple outfit full of texture.

These moc toe Red Wings were one of the very first pairs of boots I reviewed. Seven years later, and with the addition of some cheap insoles to soften the hard footbed, they remain as one of my frequent wears. Made of full grain leather with a wedge sole, the style reminiscent of construction yards only looks better the more beat up they get.

Quilted jacket: Amazon, $50

Shawl collar sweater: Gap, 51

Denim shirt: Target, $25

Chinos: Old Navy, $35

Boots: Red Wing, $269

This isn't the first time we've featured this quilted bomber jacket from Amazon and cable knit shawl collar from Gap. The bomber was in our Easy Casual Spring Getup, and the sweater again proves its casual versatility in my fall weekend to Montauk Getup.

    I’ve never cared much for bombers, but I like this outfit and the jacket is the only piece I’m missing. So I put that bomber on my Amazon wishlist after reading this.

    And I like the new format!

    • Andrew

      Awesome! Thank you!

  • Ross

    Home..freakin..Run! One of my favorite Getups in a long while. (And it’s hard to find one you don’t like.) great job Andrew! You said it perfectly in the article. It’s simple but provides a lot of textures with a little rustic feel to it. Definitely cool casual! Just wish I could find the right fitting chinos that look great at the ankle with my red wing moc boots but fit tailored enough on my skinny butt!

    • Andrew

      Thanks so much Ross! That means a lot!

      So you have trouble finding chinos that are slim in enough in the ankle taper and in the butt?

      • Ross

        Kind of. Like some of the tapered ankles of the slim fit tend to be too narrow to fit well over the boot but they are to baggy in the seat and thigh. Same is true with off the rack jeans. The only jeans I can wear are fidelity slim jimmy in Revolution Rinse but I still need them slightly altered. As a reference, Target’s Goodfellow and Co. Slim Straight jeans are the best fit I’ve found off the rack but they don’t have that same slim straight fit available in their chinos. Do you have any advice or suggestions so I can save money not going to the tailors? Or is that the only way I’ll find the right fit of chinos? Also how did you find the Old Navy chinos fit? Do you happen to know the ankle opening measurements?

  • Zac Silk

    I really like this getup, having already bought the chinos, denim shirt and shawl collar cardigan from other getups I think puts me in a pretty good position.

    Like Ross I’m definitely going to try that bomber, even more so as it ships to the U.K.

    Just on sizing which size did you go for Andrew?

    • Ross

      The reviews suggest sizing up from your normal size zac! Let me know how it works out!

      • Zac Silk

        Thanks for the tip Ross! I normally take a small in Alpha Industries bombers, so I’ll look into a medium for this one and report back to you.

      • Zac Silk

        Hey Ross, belated response, but the bomber’s on its way to me, i’ll let you know when it gets here. Might be a while with international shipping.

  • Chris Taylor

    I’m a sucker for a good cardigan. I like the texture on that one. I’m thinking the camel color to pair it up with denim.

    • Ross

      I thought about doing the same Chris! Great idea!

  • Thomas

    Just got that cardigan – your pictures convinced me. Looks like a nicer color in your pictures then on GAPS site. edit: AND its on sale + extra discount, so a good time to snatch this item I would say

  • Nick Burka

    hey there- digging the look. I noticed on amazon that the jacket seems to run small. how would you recommend making the call on what size to go for?

    • Ross

      Nick, I would definitely size up one size. If you normally wear a large I would suggest ordering an XL

  • Chris Fitzsimmons

    Killer getup, love the texture on that cardigan. Paired with the classic Red Wing Moc toes and brown chinos, I am going to have to steal this look. 🙂
