LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Make It A Muscle Shirt

It has finally become perfect summer weather. I always love those nights in New York when the sun is just beginning to set, there is a light breeze and there is no humidity in the air. It’s night like this where I breathe in and wish for the summer never to leave us. It feels as if that time between the sunset and pure darkness could last forever. With that being said the nights are beginning to get a bit chillier which means the pants are coming out for both guys and girls.

The greatest part about this Fashionisto’s outfit is just the pure simplicity of it. I love the color of his pants, a merlot hue that can easily be transformed into a look for autumn as well. His gray suede oxfords add a sense of sophistication and flair to his ensemble along with a simple leather cord around his neck. My favorite part of his look was definitely the not overly macho muscle shirt. There’s usually something that really bothers me about the sleeveless shirt on men that I can’t quite put my finger on, maybe it’s the thinness of the straps or the daring cut of the sleeve, but this Fashionisto’s top really impressed me. A thicker sleeve in off-white doesn’t give it an “I just got off at the gym” kind of feel. It just works, showing off great arms as well as giving off a uber casual, cool vibe.

If you’re looking for a similar style check out this Alexander Wang T in charcoal. For something with a bit more flair try this shirt by Raf Simons. Find a pair of gray oxfords like these Calvin Kleins and slip on a pair of wine colored denim.

Hint: Try out different sleeve widths but don’t go too skinny and stick to plain!
