Spring is here and so is the best fashion list for a manly man’s wardrobe.
Count down begins now:
10 Striped sweater: Why? Think about the casual cool of Gatsby. When it comes to stripes, bolder is better. Don't worry about wearing stripes over a pattern as long as the pattern isn't another stripe, and it's scaled differently, the two will play well together.
9 Henley tee: A bright color like turquois is best. Originally a rowing uniform in England, today's henleys serve as an alternative to a T-shirt or polo. Wear one under a blazer for the perfect mix of polished prep and rugged masculinity.
8 Modern backpack: Gotta update your manly bag every once in a while and starting now manly men upgrade. This is not the bag from your school days. Today's backpacks are updated with new materials and colors and still offer hands-free utility and compartmentalized convenience.
7 Tortoiseshell sunglasses: Not real tortoiseshell just the look-a-like ones. No longer made from the real deal, tortoiseshell sunglasses still exude a cool vintage vibe. Their warm, mottled coloring complements most skin tones.
5 Bold Blazer: Nothing says spring like a boldly colored blazer. For maximum impact, wear it over a pair of white jeans and don't be afraid to pair it with a bold shirt, too. Color big and bold always goes best with calm, cool and quiet other clothing items.
4 Tassel loafers: Trendy? Yes, just get a pair. Why? Because your inner fashion fun and savvy man wants a wake up call.
3 White jeans are dressy, dressy is cool and chicks dig a dressed up manly man. If you've never owned a pair, you'll be surprised at how versatile white jeans are. They add a safari element to khaki and other neutral clothing (think modern-day Hemingway), and provide the perfect backdrop for bright colors.
2 Camo pants: Civilians have long worn this military staple as a rebellious declaration, but today men choose camo pants as more of a bold style statement than anything else. Wear them with everything from henleys to sportcoats.
Drum roll, please.
