Mens Ready Made Outfit: Casual Chic in a Lined Hoodie

Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

It’s a simple enough fashion formula - the casual classic jeans, tee, and a hoodie.  But don’t let the simplicity downplay the style of this outfit.  We’ve constructed the perfect outfit to take you from running errands to grabbing a latte at the local coffee shop to hanging out with your buddies at night.  Here’s why it works:

Balance: The bright blue striped tee and the splash of orange on the sneakers provide a counterbalance for the muted neutrals in the rest of the outfit.

Stripes, stripes, stripes.  The stripes of the tee are front and center, but they’re echoed in the pinstripe of the belt and the colorblocking on the Diesel sneakers.

Surprise: The key to turning a good outfit into a great one is adding the element of suprise.  Sometimes its done by adding a bright splash of color, sometimes its done by adding a standout accessory, and sometimes its done by an eyecatching pattern.  Here, the element of suprise is a bit less flashy: a tiny skull pattern on the lined hoodie.

Guys, what’s your casual go-to outfit? Share your style with us in the comments!

APC Madras Narrow Shirt

APC Madras Narrow Shirt


This piece, the result of a Summer collaboration between Jessica Ogden and APC, was in so high demand that A.P.C. restocked its supply when Fall 09 came out. You don’t often see that happen, especially with more upscale designers (it helps kept exclusivity, if nothing else). The color scheme and slouchy fit definitely make this a summer piece, but waiting until next summer to really wear it a lot will be worth it. (Yes, it’s expensive, but the cost per wear you can get out of it can make it reasonably affordable.) Also, I bought this one for myself – and what is a better endorsement than that?

$110  at APC.
