Wrapping up my week with the Redbirds!
Keeping it simple today, with a casual men’s pairing I put together with several local accessories. Originally I had put this look together with jeans, boots, and a grey Cardinals tee, but it just looked too basic, like no thought was put into it. So, I took some extra time to rework this outfit to subtly take it up a notch or two, while still keeping it casual. I swapped out the jeans for navy chinos with a rolled cuff, then mixed in a clean cut white Cards tee, and ditched the chukka boots in favor of some loafers. Essentially a visual migration from something a bit more country, to a bit more nautical. I’m also glad I spent the extra day to hunt down some other pieces from the St. Louis area, including a rugged leather wallet, stylish brass key loop, and hand-stitched painted leather belt. To paraphrase The Big Lebowski, “They really tie the whole thing together.”
