“Military look is one of the classic men’s fashions,” as my Fashionisto for the week told me about this ensemble — I couldn’t agree more. Denim is one the basics that everyone has. It is also a piece of clothing that can be styled in many ways and comes in many washes. From denim jackets, shirts, pants and bags, denim is the unifying force in personal fashion. It is not only just for the working class, but it’s also the uniform of life.

I met this Fashionisto before I was a Style Guru for CollegeFashionista. He has a casual taste that I love and when I saw him again in one of the major landmarks in our country, I didn’t hold back and asked him to be featured. The key to his look is his denim jacket. The vintage spirit of the jacket exudes a powerful strength. The jacket acts as a standout key and he emphasizes it more by pairing it with grey denim pants. The button-down plaid makes it more casual and he finishes it off with brown laced boots. The overall look is commuter friendly. This kind of look is good for the students who are always on-the-go!

For guys who are fashion-risque, Dsquared² has an embellished version of the denim jacket. Also, Levi’s designed a collection that is aligned for guys who are always on-the-go: The Commuter Series. It’s a denim collection that caters for the commuter lifestyle. Topman also offers several denim jackets. Just don't forget to pick the denim pieces that are proportionate and fit your body well.

Hint: We love our boots but they needs a day off! Let running shoes be your alternative. To get on to this trend, you can depend on New Balance’s plethora of classic running shoes.
