Let's Hear it for the Boys

Today’s Fashionisto took a couple classic pieces and put his own spin on them, resulting in a cool and unique ensemble that’s all his own. Through starting his own business by becoming a DIY expert, he’s got a closet of original pieces custom-made for a unique urban, tailored style.

First and foremost, my favorite part of his look for a range reasons would be this color-block white and gray tank top. The length is a cool, modern take on the regular tank top, and the neutral color blocking keeps things looking sharp and minimal—one of my favorite styles. He paired it with a great pair of black fitted jeans that are the perfect fit, which is key when it comes to denim.

Upon meeting him I immediately wondered where he got his shirt, as I’m all for experimenting with different lengths and shapes, and I was excited to see that there might be some new styles emerging in men’s fashion. It turns out he actually made it himself and has been working on an entire collection of similar ideas for his clothing line, Aith, Reserved for the Talented. He custom makes shirts that vary from solid, patterned to sheer and doesn’t stop there, as he also plays on new lengths and silhouettes. Not only is this a great DIY idea, but it’s also also a very innovative addition to men’s casual fashion and is perfect for his target college-age range.

Moving on to accessories, he’s sporting a sea foam green baseball cap with a grass and duck pattern you can’t beat. Try one like this from Urban Outfitters; it’s perfect for summer and can take a simple ensemble to a new level. Incorporated are some gold accents in a simple chain necklace and textured watch. He enhanced the color scheme a bit in the perfect way with some maroon Vans, complementing the browns in his hat.

This Fashionisto serves as an inspiration to not only experiment with different silhouettes and embrace evolving fashion, but also to support local designers or make the move and start that DIY project. Your individuality won’t go unnoticed!

Hint: Get a similar look by layering a regular tank top you already have over a longer one like this black one from Farfetch.
