Read 'em and weep, ladies! There ARE indeed well-dressed men on the Penn State campus, you just need to take a closer look– although this particular gentleman wasn't too hard to spot. With his attention-grabbing pants and searsucker blazer, this week's Fashionisto looks like he walked straight out of a Lacoste catalogue. When asked about the color of his trousers, this Fashionista demonstrated his extensive knowledge of the color wheel by nonchalantly replying, "a lighter shade of nantucket red". If you haven't quite yet been swept off your feet, read on to the Q&A.. I'm sure he'll have you sold on this look.
Name: Tom Fitzpatrick
Major: Energy Business and Finance
CollegeFashionista: What is your favorite part of your outfit today?
Tom Fitzpatrick: My favorite part of my outfit today was definitely my searsucker sport coat. Wearing anything searsucker is the closest thing to a chick magnet. You couldn't see in the picture, but 12 girls were waiting to talk to me.
CF: How would you describe your everyday style?
TF: My everyday style is to look good. I have a motto "Wake up fresh, go to bed fresh."
CF: What is your favorite clothing brand to wear around campus?
TF: My favorite clothing brand is probably Vineyard Vines.
How To: This week's Fashionisto inspired me to think prep– I instantly logged onto the Vineyard Vines site and found these casual Rhubarb pants. If you're looking for something a little more subdued, they also come in a "blue heron" color that is a fantastic alternative to khaki.
