Houston Astros Style – Day 2!

What, no cowboy boots?

No, I apologize, no cowboy boots here. While I do hope to learn more about the varying styles in each city, and incorporate some of that into these fan pairings, I have my limits. That being said, however, almost every piece in this outfit is from a store or designer in Houston, while still reflecting some (stylish) Astros pride.

The shirt is, pretty clearly, a Pendleton flannel, but it so perfectly wove in the Astros colors without looking cartoony, so I started with that. Also, it’s sold by a local Houston store, which was a bonus. The away-grey pants I added in impressed me the more I read about them. Made by a Texas manufacturer, these puppies are water/stain/wrinkle-resistant, and have stretch to them, so really, you can wear them to the office all day then take them to the ballpark with no fear of ruining them. The Houston-based store selling them also had the hat I chose, which lead me to discover an entirely new-to-me brand of incredible vintage hats and jerseys. That wooshing sound you just heard was my bank account rapidly emptying itself.

To wrap it all up with some leather pieces, I added in a keychain made by a Houston based company, Manready Mercantile,  who had a lot of nice man-grooming items as well. Then, a pair of custom shoes made by the local leather wizard, Maida’s, who’s been in existence since 1901. Lastly, I discovered that MLB actually makes leather wallets lined with game-used uniforms, and, I confess, I feel like that’s a tasteful, and fan-pleasing, use of them. Well done, there.

Is there anything else you’d have added/subtracted to this outfit? I’ll have a more relaxed men’s paring with a t-shirt on Friday, so stay tuned!
