Rugged

  It's a little early for Fall, but storms are brewing this weekend and I was feeling rugged. There's nothing more classically rugged in American sportswear than leather jackets, denim shirts and t-shirts. All you need is a pickup truck and a sturdy pair of boots and you're good to go! Move that idea to the city and you'll be channeling more downtown motorcycle-cool than farm hand. That's what I was going for, at least. Styling tip: As you start to layer more and more, think of your t-shirts as a starting point that the rest of the color pallet should build upon. It's a great way to get a pop of color and offset the starkness of most dark outerwear. This tee brought out the pattern in the shirt and lightened the heaviness of the leather. But lose the graphics, you're not in high school anymore.  What are you looking forward to wearing this Fall? Banana Republic leather jacket (similar) / Uniqlo denim shirt / Gap tee / J-Crew denim / Banana Republic shoes and sunglasses / Giles & Brother cuff / AllSaints necklace
