CLOSET SHOPPING

May 18, 2015

Shopping in your man’s closet is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well, maybe not, but it’s pretty darn close in some of our opinions.

The whole “North” fashion fad has become all the rage lately and we’re all about it. Perfectly plaid flannels, baggy slim ex-boyfriend denim, Ray-Ban sunnies, and our beloved Duluth Pack Scout Pack is all you need to complete this street style worthy ensemble. Let’s give a big round of applause to our men! Without having to look far and wide, we’re able to go right to their side of the closet and pick out an outfit that is head turning worthy (on the verge of snapping necks – that good!).

Before you think, “yeah right!” just wait a tick. You may have the thought, “I’m this size and he is that size – not the same or even close” and we say, “don’t sweat it!” Maybe you don’t have to take every single piece of clothing, hoard it away – (ahem, never give it back, because it’s that comfy), or actually use any of his manly cologned pieces, but rather become inspired, enthused, and ultimately create an outfit or outfits that he can relate to and become your somewhat fashion muse.

Here are a few staples that you can find in the majority of men’s closets whether they are trekking in the woods, reading the paper in the city, or laying on the beach. These are clothing essentials that are most common and packed with quality and brand recognition. So, let’s get to the good stuff, shall we?

Now we are at the core of the body. The majority of men and women have very different body types, structures and fits. What to do, what to do? Take the ideas from the prints and colors from their clothing. Checked patterns are always going to be in style, whether you’re geographically located near the brush or you’re the farthest location from it, it’s always going to be cool. They are flattering, universal, wearable, and classic. Hard to beat that in apparel! Here is a fantastic cape made by our great friends at Faribault Woolen Mills. They combined the neutral colors of navy and olive green (Found in almost every man’s closet) to construct this exquisite piece that will blow you away, plus it’s comfy cozy and comes with a hood! This is absolutely going into my closet this season and staying forever!

Last but not least, it’s time to style up your soles with a pair of shoes that completes your outfit, but stays within the unisex feel. Birkenstock knows what both men and women want and keeps their style, design, colors and authentic appeal the same regardless of who you are.

After all the words and the few images spread on this blog, we hope you are influenced and open to run to your man’s side of the closet and dig through what intrigues his style. Please note, these items may not be in anyone’s closet, but products we recognized are pretty common in dresser drawers and hanging on hangers. There are many pieces that are worthy of being in this post as well, but limit ourselves, so you don’t become too overwhelmed! These elements are what can change up your look and keep things interesting and unpredictable every time you go to put something on.
