Summer Clothes, Day #1

Realized today that I needed to get some more clothes for the summer; haven't picked up anything new since January. I did a little browsing online today because the weather outside is awful, and right now I don't have a car. It's actually been raining or overcast for 10 days straight here in Michigan. Hopefully it goes over quick. It'd be nice to enjoy summer.

Anyway, I made a list of what I needed to get before I started looking. I definitely recommend doing this, because at least for me, once I start to look I just keep going and going and sometimes end up with a bunch of things that don't look good with each other, or that I just don't really like. Here are some of the things I saw online that looked good to me (and at a semi-reasonable price, I need to save up for school):

T-Shirts (Needed 2):
Sorry for the "loading zoom thing". 

Shorts (2):
I know a few people who think Hollister/AE/A&F are stores totally for "skaterz/fake surfers/wannabe's", but honestly they do have some good products. I really love the look of American Eagle's shorts particularly. They don't have gaudy logos all over them, have pretty good fits, and the quality is what I expect for the price for sure.
White shorts are pretty much a necessity for summer, and AE did a fantastic job with their slightly-worn preppy look on the first pair. While I know that cargo shorts have kind of faded out of men's fashion [at least with the "in-crowd" (?)] this pair by American Eagle feels different. Although you can't see it in the picture on the site, there's actually a slightly raised grid pattern on these. That, combined with slim pockets and a heavily worn look can counterbalance a somewhat plain shirt.

That's it for this post. If it clears up tomorrow I'll try to get over to the mall & the Salvation Army.

I love these shoes. These are made by the shoe company Clarks, but instead of being the elf-ish Desert Boots/Chukkas they're less... Hipster. However you have to wear them with pants. Otherwise, they look like scuba fins or duck feet. Definitely recommend these, here's the link (on Zappos):

So worth it.

First post!

Wooooo! No more Tumblr for me. Got a little tired of seeing the same sorts of pictures over and over again.

Anyway, this blog is where I'll post men's fashion that I love. There is a serious shortage of blogs for men's clothing, and a shortage of commentary on it. Hope you enjoy the blog.
