One of the hardest things (see: #firstworldproblems) about going out and socializing, is for me, deciding what to wear. As a guy, we often have limited options to choose from and have less acceptability in attending a function wearing a glorified t-shirt.
That’s why it’s always fun to take advantage of a guy’s night out every once in a while, but that’s no excuse to look like a slob (especially in a place like New York City). One of the things I actually like most about style here is how everyone manages to have this cool work/sleek/stylish/comfortable wardrobe that seamlessly transitions from days at the office to happy hours to date nights. I guess it’s because we’re often running right from one event to the other. I’m not entirely sure that’s a good thing, but that’s neither here nor there.
I’ve found the perfect style combination for me that usually includes dark jeans, a button up shirt, some chukkas and a nice jacket. Substitute a blazer or cardigan for the jacket and a polo for the button-up shirt and you pretty much have what I wear 90% of the time. Yes, sadly I’m not that inventive. I do try and switch up colors a bit from time to time, however.
If you can’t tell, I’m all about comfort and function. If a shirt hugs just a little too tight I’ll toss/donate it. If my shoes hurt my feet I’ll never wear them. That’s one of the reasons why I’m really glad to have partnered with Rockport shoes for this post. Their Parker Hill Desert Boot comes with ADIPRENE technology which basically means you feel like you’re wearing tennis shoes/sneakers but with the look of a boot. They are just awesome.
So for me, guys night out can consist of drinks, likely some carb-heavy food and maybe a movie. Sometimes that plan devolves into a variety of things, but hey I guess that’s one of the
down upsides of living in the Big Apple with so many options.
That’s a quick look at my guys’ night out style. Check back here on the blog soon with a really special offer from Rockport. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
