The Schoolyard Wardrobe, Part III



The Schoolyard Wardrobe, is our mini-guide for back-to-schoolers or back-to-workers (with "dress how you want" jobs). We started with a few tips and trends, gave you some sales, deals, and shoes, now we're wrapping it up with an informal look book of sorts. Basically a pre-fall run-down of what will be cool all-year long (dontcha feel lucky?). Cindy (Miss Urban Gentleman) and I casually put together a few looks to help you gents with your schoolyard wardrobe. Most are easy-to-get (simple) transitional looks that can take you from summer to fall.


8am class? Wake up and toss it on:
striped oxford shirt, seersucker shorts (rolled up), and
leather tassel moccasins (loafers)


short-sleeves button-down, linen trousers,
brown woven-detailed tassel loafers, vintage jean jacket.


Lets take a little time-out from all the designer logo "varsitywear"; take a trip to the campus bookstore, buy a shirt and/or cardigan, and properly represent your college or university.

college tee, navy double-pleated corduroys, vans authentic

(there's a pair of navy cords on sale at macys for 29.99)
In hand: The Filthy Rich Handbook

plaid button-down, paisley suspenders, white pants, loafers


When it comes to wearing a shirt in the spring, summer, and parts of fall, a basic schoolyard rule: "Button it down. Roll it up". Rolling up the sleeves gives you a more casual look.

vintage jean jacket, lightweight tweed trousers, canvas lace-ups

gingham button-up, gray jeans, army fatigue jacket, converse all-stars

While I usually let my back-pocket do all the fatiguing, I decided to amp it up and make my hint much more noticeable. (check part I for more camouflage/army fatigue options)


Subtle changes can be made to all of the above looks and the overall look will still be just as fly. For example: black or dark blue jeans instead of the gray; Navy trousers instead of the linen ones; etc. Be sure to go back and review Parts I and II to properly implement the schoolyard wardrobe.

Simple Summer Style: Red & White

I meant to put this up in time for the 4th, but you can still rep the red and white since July is the unofficial red, white, and blue month.

(shirt: vintage, pants: J.Crew, shoes: Toms, hat: Rag &Bone)
Urban Gent Kanayo King keeps it simple with a red and white gingham button-up (though it may appear pink in the photo), white chinos, and his favorite summer shoes– classic red Toms. And it all comes together with the fedora (brown with a red and white ribbon).
