When it comes to your wardrobe try to find the right balance of trendy and classic. It’s good to know what is popular and wear some of it, but it’s also good to know what’s classic and will never go out of style and make that your foundation while adding in the current trends.
One example for me on this right now is skinny jeans. The thing I like about skinny jeans is the tailored nature of them. One of the best things I ever learned about how to dress is never wear something that isn’t tailored. You don’t need a bunch of extra material pooling at the ankles of your pants or extra inches around your waist. Your shirts should not be tight, but they don’t need to be flapping in the wind either. Now, there are varying levels of skinny jeans. You need to find the right company for you. For me American Eagle Skinny are just right. Also Levi 511’s are pretty close too. There is a difference between skinny jeans and jeggings. No dude should ever wear tights. Period.
Certain clothing companies do a good job of walking the line of trendy and classic. I don’t really do a lot of shopping for clothes. I keep it simple and I don’t have a huge clothing budget whatsoever. I probably spend about an average of $200-300 a year on clothes. I try to have the basic staples and just get creative on how I pair them. When I do shop I hit up the sale racks of Gap and J. Crew, mostly for the classic stuff. Then I watch for the trendy stuff at places like Pacsun, American Eagle (the rare stuff that doesn’t have their logo embroidered prominently on the item), T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, backcountry.com.
Okay. There you go. Be trendy. Stay classy boys.
Being a dad to three boys is a rush, kind of like hang gliding in between mountains. My sons are 8, 6 and 3 years old and I want to actively train them how to be men. I have decided to start a project this year that will help me in that goal. I want to use Instagram to post a video a day with a tip on living life as a man. They are meant to be conversation starters.
I want to use this blog as a way to add more detail to the topic. Feel free to join in on the project. Watch along, post your thoughts, help me add to this project. Hopefully it will be something my sons can look back on as a bit of a guide to living in this world as a man.
The videos will post to Instagram and to Facebook.
We spent a couple days up north for Independence Day Weekend. I am thankful for my country and for those who fought, sacrificed and gave their lives so we could enjoy independence and freedom.
He could do this all day.
