Well, I do have my brother who is two years older than me. Some days he'll dare come down to the kitchen wearing some oddly matched clothing... ahhh gotta love big bros. My mom and I exchange disapproving glances and send him on his way back up the stairs. But, I must say, my brother has a pretty good sense of style. He doesn't wear a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers everyday but rather a more modern "European" look by which I mean he actually looks presentable and not like he is wearing what he wore to bed the night before (like most boys). But, I thought it'd be fun to scavenge through my brother's closet and fish out a manly yet fashionable outfit for a normal day. Here are my findings:
Here we have a burgundy/ red long- sleeve tee, a green, fleece pull-over, light khaki pants, and casual dress shoes. I think the burgundy is a great winter color for anyone and since it's cold outside the pull- over adds color and warmth with perfect balance of masculinity.
Burgundy tee- Old Navy
Khaki Pants- Levi's at Macy's (Levi's are awesome for young men. My bro mostly wears Levi's and they come in tons or cool colors like dark green and a dark purple)
Green pullover- Old Navy
This pullover really works here because it's a lush, manly green and doesn't look super baggy like a sweatshirt would, it's filled with fleece too:)
Brown casual shoes- Macy's men's shoes
Yep, my brother wears a size 11 but these shoes look very good on his large feet. They are perfect for going to Christmas parties and going out to dinner too.
This outfit really combines the manly comfort with the fashions of the modern world--not that I'm an expert male outfitter or anything but still.... The burgundy and red add color, the khakis add class, and the shoes are comfy, sh, and casual. The perfection recipe for any brother.
Boy, oh, boy...
