For The Boys 2

Shirt:  Kal Rau;  Plaid shirt M4
Jeans:  Blitzed;  Combo Jeans, tone 3
Shoes:  Eg+Redgrave;  El Ganso sneakers, 007 black canvas

Xan always comes through for me.  I told him that I needed another “For the Boys” look (with a heavy load of *hint hint hint*) and he showed up with this ensemble.

The turned up cuffs with the plaid-accented jeans are just so cute and always remind me of the 50’s James Dean look.  Add the plaid in the layered shirt (which is actually all on one layer) and now I have The Lumberjack by Jackyl on auto-repeat in my head.  Who knew a chain saw could be a musical instrument??

Disclaimer:  In the interest of full disclosure…I didn’t see until I was editing the picture that there is a very noticeable seam showing around the waist.  I did not edit it out (which is giving the perfectionist in me twitches).

P.S. – Just a little note that I’m on vacation and away from home until Friday, August 4, 2011.  All posts published during this week have been previously edited and awaiting publication in my Drafts.

One For the Boys

Hoodie:   SEY;   Buttoned Hoodie /A/Black
Jeans:  NSD;  Homme Jeans/Black
Tee:  Muism;   Deep V Tee/Black
Necklace:  Mandala;  Kimera Necklace /Black
Shoes:  GOS;   Desert Boots – Black Leather

When I tp’d Xan over to my place to start our evening with a hug and a kiss, I was super-impressed with the outfit he’d put together.  I had to delay the start of our evening so I could drag him to the rooftop studio and grab a couple quick pics.  And color me shocked – he even accessorized!

In my opinion, a guy can never go wrong with Sey or Mandala (especially when said guy usually doesn’t wear jewelry).  He’s always loved to shop, but now he’s starting to bring out his inner fashionisto.  I’m creating a new category, “For The Boys”, to feature men’s clothing that I want to give a nod to.
