Local Urban Gentleman: Jamie Ryan McFarland

I’m super excited to introduce our newest local urban gentleman. His name is Jamie McFarland and he hails from England, United Kingdom! Yesss, finally, the FIRST non-American local gent (round of applause)… I heart it. His style game is sick, and he’s definitely one of my favorites thus far- you’ll know why after you see his pictures. Oh, and did I mention he’s from England, that’s right I did :) Without further adieu…

Presenting, Jamie Ryan McFarland…
someone’s been paying attention, Jamie exhibits the hautest trends
of this year… rolled cardigan, skinny jeans, gold chains,
heart brooch, all seamlessly combined in a subtle way.
My favorite part of this look? the gold chains.
why? well because its the little things that go a long way,
Jamie wears 2 different sized chains- a thin herringbone and medium cuban
He chooses to wear them under his shirt.
This helps to focus and fine-tune the look.
If he had worn them over the shirt it would take away from the
red brooch and the chains would perhaps appear too “blingy”.

simple summer dandy.
the blazer. the shorts. the white boat shoes. the brown braided belt.
everything gets a check mark
in my book.
jamie made these perfect summer jean shorts by cutting a pair
of jeans and rolling the edges- very clever.

1. How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is eclectic, I like taking different styles and merging them together then adding my own touch.

2. How did you become so stylish?
Ever since I was young, I had always went with the fashion, but in the past 3-4 years I have purposely tried to achieve a specific style of my own and one that suits me.

3. What advice would you give someone trying to find their personal style?
Wear what you like, as long as you feel comfortable. Try to make a statement, however keep in mind that some times less is more! – but that doesnt mean less clothes and walk around naked lol!

4. What’s the best clothing advice you ever received?
“Wear clothes that bloody fit!!”

What I like most about Jamie’s style is the versatility. One minute he looks like a polished hipster, the next a traditional dandy, then a trendy urbanite. He even changes the style of his hair…. seriously they’re different in every picture- who does that? I’ll tell you who- cool people, lol. One of my best friends gets his hair a tad different every time he cuts it… he has 3 main looks – caesar, high-top fade, and tapered. (His hair texture is similar to Jamies, but a bit thicker)… Hmmm this inspires me to do some hair articles for you guys…

Levi’s Jeans Jacket, $68, click here.

I think I’d go as far as saying these two items or similar items are essentials in an urban gentleman’s wardrobe these days. I’ve been getting alot of emails about jean jackets, so I searched some online stores and placed a few in The Urban Gent Store, check them out here.

Yet again another Chicagoan with style (the third so far… the midwest and south represent strong- the west coast and northeast are slacking a bit…). Mr.Wolinski is an urban gent currently transitioning styles. Traditionally known for his cool hair and graphic tees, he’s now developing his own style… which consists of slim cuts that pay ode to old-school looks.

Rashon gives us a close-up of his combination skills, very dapper indeed

1. How would you describe your style? Traditional mixed with edgy contemporary.

2. How did you become so stylish? I was in middle school and became frustrated because my parents could not afford the latest brands and styles my cohorts were wearing. So I caught a glimpse of some of my cohorts wearing khakis and polo shirts. Since then, my style has evolved. I am an avid shopper of Goodwill, Thrift Stores, Vintage Stores and the Salvation Army. At least one piece of garment I’m wearing is vintage.

3. What advice would you give someone trying to find their personal style? My advice is the advice I give when I consider outfitting a home. Clip magazine articles of the style you like and the people wearing it…look at them…you clipped them for a reason. Now go buy what you like and put it on. Its personal…Its your style.

4. What’s the best clothing advice you ever received? Try to find what no one else is wearing…
