I was at my nephew's soccer game several weekends ago when my brother-in-law asked me, "What do you think about guys wearing rompers, like jumpsuits, but with shorts not pants?" "Hmmm" I responded. He went on, "It was a big thing on Facebook this week and everyone was going in about it, making jokes, figured I'd ask the fashion expert".  So how do I feel about men wearing rompers?

My Top Picks: For the summer, if it's in your budget, I'd suggest the preppy Thom Brown jumpsuit in the middle, but cut the sleeves and pants to make it more airy. The raw edges would look stylish or you could take it to a tailor and have them do it so it's sewn properly. Paired with perforated Common Projects  + the perfect pair of shades — it's an easy win. If you try this definitely let us know. 

I think everything is so relative. When asked this question my initial thought was of men in their work uniforms. My family is in the car business (car dealerships, auto shops, custom shops), so I have seen men in logo embroidered one-piece work jumpsuits since I could open my eyes. And of course, there's nothing wrong with that. My grandfather owns lawn and building management service companies, so again I've seen men in overalls my entire life as well.  My next thought jumped to Europe, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Austria countries like that and I envisioned lederhosen— which is traditional to the culture.  After computing that, I thought about an article I briefly read a couple months ago discussing the new trend of rompers for men… and it just didn't quite sit well in my mind. I imagined men in short semi-snuggly fitting body suits, legs very exposed… it felt a little too feminine. This series of thoughts took about 30 seconds or so, and I was finally able to respond to the question my brother-in-law so fervidly inquired.

Country Artist Sam Hunt

A little chill country music from our boy Sam Hunt

"Got a girl from the Southside, got braids in her hair…"

A white t-shirt becomes an easy wardrobe staple for many small town men. When I think of Sam Hunt's style, I automatically envision a white t-shirt, but not your grandaddy's Fruit of the Loom shirt. Sam usually rocks a variety of more stylish, modern fitting tees. So here's a few of our favorite white t-shirts, perfect for an Urban Gentleman that likes to keep it simple…

A Congressman’s Uniform: Fashion Interview with Ambassador Andrew Young

Last month, I was personally invited to attend The HOPE Global Forum in Atlanta, Georgia. It was quite the business affair, the rooms overflowed with everyone from CEOs of multi-billion dollar corporations to bootstrapping entrepreneurs. There was ample opportunity for connections and nearly all attendees seemed to be in good spirits. It was here that I found myself informally chatting it up with the great Andrew Young. A leader, a trailblazer, a reverend, a congressman, a mayor, and ambassador… Young has lived quite a full life and seems to have no plans of stopping. 

What I thought would only be a small polite conversation, quickly turned into a full-scale reveal of his view on men's style and fashion. By the end of the conversation a crowd of smiling, well-engaged faces had gathered around us. So I figured I’d sum up what I learned first-hand about the style of this historical figure, and share it with The Urban Gentleman family.
