LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Melding Old And New

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Among the many people currently trying to survive the winter, I spotted this Fashionisto fighting the cold weather in a military-chic ensemble. What drew me to his outfit was the interesting pairing of the retro coat with trendy shoes, along with the rest of his choice in clothing and accessories.

Wearing his father’s Navy Officer peacoat, this Fashionisto makes a confident statement with the coat and its gold buttons. The black color makes it an easy piece to wear with other outfits, making it very versatile and a favorite within this Fashionisto’s wardrobe. The authentic military peacoat gives off an air of authority and masculinity. Underneath, he wears a striped dress shirt with the collar peeping out. This is another easy piece to work with since it can be dressed up or down.

The second key piece in this Fashionisto’s outfit are his shoes. He sports a pair of white Supra Vaiders with red and black accents. The modern, young feel of the shoes juxtaposed with the vintage peacoat is what I loved the most about this outfit. With the main focus on the shoes and coat, this Fashionisto went with a simple pair of khaki pants, keeping the level of maturity of the outfit consistent. With opposite colors for the two main pieces, pants in a color that lies right in the middle helps maintain balance. As for accessories, he only sports a black and rose gold watch, which is bold enough on its own. The elegant watch is an appropriate choice since it’s in a similar color scheme as the peacoat.

Hint: To get the military look in your outfit, try coats that are double breasted. Clothing in darker shades of green look very army-esque as well.
