LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Family Heirlooms

Let's Hear it for the Boys

These past few weeks I have been finding some edgy dudes roaming around James Madison University’s campus. So this week I was on the hunt for a Fashionisto with a more classic and preppy style! Luckily I spotted this handsome fellow braving the snow on a Sunday afternoon!

His sweater and vest combo is equally as warm as it is fashionable. This Fashionisto tells me his number one rule to winter is comfort over style, but I have to say he does a fantastic job at both!

If your sweater is a solid, make the shirt underneath a patterned one. Mix it up! Don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors too. If you’re into a classic American look, check out Kiel James Patrick’s line. He almost single-handedly revitalized the timeless American style and always has me checking his latest posts on Instagram.

Now for the details. This Fashionisto’s watch really caught my eye, but what stood out the most was his ring. Turns out this gem is a family heirloom!  It’s been passed down in his family for three generations now and he hopes to keep the tradition going even longer! Last but certainly not least are his L.L.Bean boots. I also have a pair and they have saved my life during this polar vortex!

Hint: Throw on your favorite sweater and layer a vest over it! Also check out Kiel James Patrick on Instagram and Twitter, you’re sure to crave the KJP lifestyle. Head on over to J. Crew and check out their colorful sweaters which are perfect for creating a classic layered American look!
