This week’s OOTW comes to us from @MrEyeconic on Twitter.
It’s not necessarily the style I responded so strongly to (though I do love a guy who can pull off a bow tie), it’s that he owns the whole look so confidently. He looks so put together, and it’s great how the different pieces coordinate without feeling too matchy-matchy.
Also? Whoever said a sweater vest is nerdy should know better now. Mr Eyeconic obviously does.
And those shoes? Get on every guy I know’s feet. Right now.
Here’s what he had to say about his look:
1. Bowtie (Self Tied) from Ebay
2. Vest from Polo (similar here)
3. Trousers: Levis 511′s
4. Shoes and Watch both from Aldo “The shoes were love at first sight”
My favorite parts are the straight fit chinos, bow-tie and watch. And the shoes that make the look his own. Also the little pop of red from the man on the horse, because red is my favorite color.
Mr. Eyeconic, got anything to add? I’m sure readers would love to know where you got what you’re wearing in the picture above. Let us know in the comments!
Then readers, tell me: Do you rock the bow tie look? What about the sweater vest? If so, how do you keep it cool (and less pocket protector-esque)
