The School Yard Wardrobe

Certain "things" are going a little slower than planned, so though we wanted to wait on posting the "back to school" article, we're going to go ahead and post it now because of high demand.

The School Yard Wardrobe

 

It's back to school for everyone from grade school to graduate school. So we've prepared The Schoolyard Wardrobe for all the Urban Gentlemen that are about to hit the books (and make straight A's.). We'll be combining basic essentials with trends to prepare you for the new school year.

Like we do in school, let's outline the article:

I: Summary
A: Checklist- the contents of an urban gentleman's wardrobe
B: Trends- the latest men fashion trends

II: Clothing, Shoes, Accessories (separate post)
A: Sales and Deals- the best deals from around the internet for men's clothing

III: Example Photos (separate post)
A: Urban Gentleman Kanayo King gives us examples of looks for The School Yard wardrobe

 

The Checklist

 

We'll take this from our Wardrobe Guide. If you haven't already been through it, then take a few minutes to atleast skim it (it's from last year, so it's slightly dated, but should give a general gist on what you need). We have to assume you have the basics, and are simply replacing a few items or adding a lil' girth to the urban gent wardrobe you already have.

The Trends

There will be a full-on trends article later, but for now we'll play with what we know.

The Urban Gentleman has made "a hint of fatigue" very official, ever since we featured it I've seen an increase all around town– whether it's a fatigue bandanna in the back pocket , fatigue shoe-strings, or jacket.

Plaid is just going to be in until we're all just done with it. But I mean, how many more patterns are there– gingham, paisley, stripes… the point is– adding a little more plaid won't hurt you.

Monochromatic hues are still a favorite, and we're going to properly explore that over the next year. There's not alot of it on the streets because most people don't quite know how to do it, so we'll re-tackle that at some point over the next few months.

Not-so-skinny jeans are being happily received by those who thought jeans would just keep getting tighter– nah, we had to nip that in the bud. "Skinny" (or more like slim-fit) is still a yes, but skinny-as-hell is a no (basically bulge should not be seen, lol).

Boots all year round in different types and materials.
Jean jackets and jean on jean.
Era themed– whether it's 50s, 60s, 80s, or 90s.

And you guys can peruse through last year's fall/winter trends and this years spring/summer trends for the rest…

And while looking at these trends remember our motto, "We Collect Fashion, We Create Style". Think about how you can integrate these trends into your own personal style; adapt the trends to your style, don't let the trends change your style.

Next up, we'll have a list of sales and deals from around the internet to purchase clothing, shoes, accessories. For now, you can look through last year's Back to School Wardrobe List.

  1. I agree with the quote that you said "we collect fashion, but we create fashion" I feel that that quote touches bases with alot of men who feel that they need to try and fit in with the ever changing fads within men's fashion. Instead of taking your own fashion sense and incorporating it into the newest trend. We must concentrate on what we can use to enhance our unique swagger.

    great post
