    “Who says you can’t wear workwear on Easter?” was Andrew’s title for his look.

    Gabi’s Take

    Andrew really nailed it with these jeans; they look like they were made for him. I also love the cuff at the bottom that really shows off his shoes. Finally, that jacket is perfect. I want it for myself.

    Megan’s Take

    Here’s the thing: with a slim frame like Andrew’s, I can’t imagine that all the elements of his OOTW went directly from off the rack to on his body. It’s rare that any guys are able to just hit the mall, buy all the pieces of an outfit and have them fit perfectly right then and there. I’m guessing at least one or two items were tailored. Maybe the jeans were shortened an inch or two (yes, you can have your jeans shortened and still want to keep enough length for a cuff), or perhaps the shirt peeking out from under the sweater was taken in on the sides. I’d love to hear from Andrew about the details of his look, and what, if anything, he had done.

      Probably my favorite OOTW posted thus far. Extremely similar to what I wear on a casual weekend. Great fit on the jeans to his frame and dig the hint of color coming from the button down underneath his sweater. Casual while still looking very presentable

      Only negative is the white crewneck shirt under his button down. That almost always looks like some poorly dressed person in an office. A v-neck or or none at all is the only way to go if you’re unbuttoning you collar. My $.02

      Other than that, great getup Andrew!!

        Right? I want to get that jacket in every reader’s closet right this minute!

      Nice work Andrew. Are those Redwings? Well put together.

    • qpl

      where is that jacket from?

    • Kiel

      As an Idahoan, I really appreciate this. I could wear this to church—though it might be slightly too dressed up ;)

    • Kiel

      PS: Anyone notice the one upturned sleeve cuff on his jacket? He’s showing off some kind of red bling. Details y’all.

    • Adam Wyatt

      I agree with Gabi. Where can i get that jacket?! great outfit with all the layers.

    • Alain

      Does that jacket come in other colours? Great outfit btw.

        Looks like a Carhartt, but I can’t be sure. Hopefully Andrew will jump in in the comments and give us the deets soon!

      If I’m not mistaken, the jacket is Pointer Brand. I own the banded collar version and it is definitely a more traditional full-cut so some tailoring might be required for slimmer folks: http://www.pointerbrand.com/index.php/jackets-coats/chore-coats/brown-duck-chore-coat.html

    • Libtard

      good fit on everything. That dark Cherry leather boot is nice

      Pointer Brand makes some really good stuff, made in the USA (Bristol, TN). I have one of their Chore Coats, which is also available in tall sizes by the way. Nothing but good things to say about the company and the products they offer.

      Love this look. He takes what most guys wear on an average weekend and elevates it. *slimmer jeans cuffed perfectly, pop of color under the sweater, perfect fitting jacket.

      Well done!

      Thanks for the love, everyone! I haven’t been online all weekend, this was a pleasant surprise! None of these pieces have been tailored. I am very meticulous about only buying things that fit well. If they’re close, I will have them tailored, like shirts and pants. Best advice, have someone measure you. Guys normally know their neck size, however, have your chest measured and use the sizing guides that brands give you. It’s easy to do and this will ensure you are always looking your best! Cheers!

      Everything looks great on Andrew. However the jacket is my favorite piece here. The fit is simply perfect: http://www.thekacar.com

      Thanks everyone, the jacket is actually a Pointer Chore Coat – here’s a link – http://www.pointerbrand.com/index.php/jackets-coats/chore-coats/brown-duck-chore-coat.html

      Thanks, Matt! I 100% agree with you on the white t peaking out. I usually wear v necks too! Needed to do laundry as I was running low!
