Anyone that knows me understands why I appreciate bold, striped pieces. For one, they can add character to any outfit. Think about all those times you wore a solid color outfit, and it looked completely boring. Add a few stripes, and you have transformed your entire look.

Today, I decided to wear one of my favorite striped shirts from ASOS. I picked up this top about two years ago for $7, and it’s been worn bi-weekly ever since. Why? Remember, I love bold stripes, and this shirt is the definition of BOLD. With contrasting striped colors, and cut-off sleeves, this shirt is perfect when paired with the right pair of pants.

For this look, I decided to wear my shirt with a pair of DIY distressed jeans, leather oxford loafers, and a wide brim fedora. From head to toe, this outfit is perfect for one of those later summer afternoons.

How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…harem pants?

Most guys are intimidated by harem pants, but I clearly could care less. Why? I’m not exactly sure. Other than MC Hammer and Kanye, I haven’t noticed too many men wearing harem pants around town. I can only recall a few times in New York, where I have witnessed a group of guys wearing them out. Perhaps, there is a feminine stigma associated with this particular style. Whatever the case may be, these pants are actually comfortable. They’re actually more comfortable than those tight joggers everyone seems to be wearing these.

Tip: Since the leg area is a little snug, going up a size is the best option. Plus, if you plan on throwing these bad boys in the washer, they’re going to shrink anyway.

This brings us back to our original question, how did I wear harem pants?

Today, I decided to wear my harem pants with a graphic tank and pair of leather oxford lace up shoes. Of course, I’m wearing a picture of James Dean on my chest. Everyone knows he’s my style icon.

So where did you get the tank from Bryce Lennon? To make a long story short, I received this tank late last year as a Christmas gift. Since I’m almost infatuated with this iconic figure, it was a perfect fit in my dresser.

What about the footwear? The shoes were picked up from DSW back in 2011. They still look great with other black pieces.

Tip: Remember, it’s summer. So a tank or short sleeve tee is the best option. If you are looking to turn a few heads, try a brightly colored or fancy graphic tee with your harem pants.

Fellas, I hope you can build a little courage and purchase a pair of harem pants. If you already own a pair, share your experiences with us below.

When I’m not slaving at work five days a week, I love to spend time with my closest friends.

This weekend, I had to chance to catch up with my designer friend, Seonne B. Last time we checked up with @msbowtieqing, she was caught stepping out in her 2014 summer apparel.

Today, Seonne and I  decided to dress up for a “Dapper” day in the city. From custom bowties, to leather saddle shoes, we wanted to pay homeage to the late 50s and early 60s.

Seonne, with her tomboy inspired style, decided to wear a solid color oxford button-up, khaki shorts, and leather tassel loafers. Continuing with the “Dapper” theme, I went with a striped button-down, skinny khakis, and leather saddle shoes.

I think our outfits compliment each other very well, don’t you think? Feel free to share your opinions below in our comment section.
