Suede Jacket

Lucky, $349

A steal considering Banana Republic's version is $150 more and our grail-favorite from Todd Snyder is $650 more.

spier & mackay denim dress shirt

Denim Dress Shirt

Spier & Mackay, $55

Not all denim shirts are meant for rodeos. A classic dress shirt cut from denim adds texture and a dash of rugged casual to more preppy or refined outfits. Swap for J.Crew's chambray shirt for a lighter-weight option or more sizes.

columbia belt

Columbia Belt

Amazon, $23

A textured but simple style in a low contrast grey. With over 12,000 reviews and under $25, it's a no brainer. Swap for a canvas military belt for a frugal alt.

Twill Pants

Amazon, $23

Swap out your khakis for some off-white twill pants: They warm-weather-ify any outfit and are just as easy to pull off. Pinky swear.

suede vans era

Suede Sneakers

Vans, $65

Loafers would look great. Some chukkas, for sure. Or, toss in some small beach town energy with a pair of Vans made with a handsome neutral suede.

black MWC watch


MWC at J.Crew, $55

A simple, classic field watch at a reasonable price.

Le Spec, $47

A pair of clear frames aren't simply the “go with anything” option, they contribute a surprising amount of style for something so…transparent.
