Maybe it’s the weather. Maybe it’s the economy. Or maybe it’s just style mavericks like Alexa Chung or Ralph Lauren employees that make us crave some classic, utilitarian (read: warm and cozy) masculinity in our wardrobe. Boyfriend blazers are worn over button-up shirts buttoned up to the collar and tucked into slouchy khakis or distressed jeans. Brogues, sized for the girls, can be paired with skinny jeans or dresses as a more forward-version of ballet flats. Army jackets thrown over a ruffled dress or a tweed suit add instant cool.
The look is easy to steal from– just imagine the wardrobe of the best dressed guy you know. A good place to start is the Jack Georges Chelsea Collection Classic Briefbag. Crafted in Italy with individually hand stained vegetable tanned leather, this beauty will last you through a season of the boyfriend trend and a lifetime’s worth of work carry-alls. When you retire, you can gift it to your daughter. Because quality never goes out of style.
