We had these pants for american workwear , but never had a chance to use them. So, I put this together… its moreso for a mild winter day (and falls more inline with the basic: plaid, slim-fit pants, canvas trends).

Utility: The American Workwear Trend

Photobucket

u·til·i·tar·i·an

–adjective

1. pertaining to or consisting in utility.

2. having regard to utility or usefulness rather than beauty, ornamentation, etc.

3. of, pertaining to, or adhering to the doctrine of utilitarianism.

–noun

4. an adherent of utilitarianism.

—Synonyms

2. practical, useful, functional, sensible.

The American Workwear trend is simply about having utilitarian style. Style that is based upon necessity and usefulness rather than it just "looking good". When you're working on the factory line, or on the ranch, or in a steel mill you have to wear clothing that matches the environment, that protects, and makes it much easier to get the work done. Even the old school paper boy had to be mindful to not wear garments that would not get in the way of his job.

Take this trend to another level and make it personal by choosing to base your workwear style on that of a particular industry or job. Perhaps that of a mechanic or maybe that of a hunter or maybe one of the many others we've mentioned over the past few days.

Jeaned Up

Urban Gentleman Kanayo King
(shirt: Ralph Lauren, vest: vintage, jeans: RL, shoes: Converse)

We’ve combined a few trends to get this look: colorized, shades of blue, summer layers, and well, jean. Basically we’ve jeaned up urban gent Kanayo King, threw in some ‘characterized’ classic chucks, classic frames, and beaded accessories to top it all off.

Detailed Notes: These days when you opt for monochromatic or colorized, you can either keep it classic 80s with everything matching exactly or you can update it and add depth by varying the shade of the color you’re wearing… we did the latter. We also mixed jean textures: chambray shirt, hard denim vest, and soft denim jeans– this adds a sort of visual interest to the look and it gives it a bit of stylish ruggedness. (PS: The vest is actually a vintage jean jacket with the sleeves cut off).
