Expanding my casual side is definitely something I’ve been trying to do lately. If you follow me on Instagram or watch me closely on Male Fashion Advice, you’ll see that it’s been happening slowly but surely. As we get right into the beginning of “real summer”, there’s probably going to be a lot more of these posts since it’s the best way to try new ways to dress down.
Even though we love going sartorial on the blog, we still have a passion for casual style. It’s been 80F for a full two weeks in Southern California and I’ve found myself ditching my ties for open collars and my sportcoats for rolled up shirt sleeves. We’ve talked about sartorial casual, but its always fun to take it down a notch further and wear tee shirts with trousers! It’s a topic we’ve explored 3 times in the past, but this one has a slight nautical twist. The look is perfect for hot days when even a button up is too much.
One big question I get asked often is “do you even wear t-shirts”. Usually the question implies two things: that I am incapable of dressing down and that a t-shirt is reserved for being ultra-casual or lazy. This post is designed to tell you that this isn’t the case. A t-shirt isn’t just for “bum days” or athletic wear; this important piece of clothing can be dressed down or dressed up at will and will always help you look fantastic. Today, we will talk about how a t-shirt supposed to fit and show you eight different ways you can get the most out of it.
