Are you ready for Style Girlfriend’s second-annual No Jeans January challenge? Good. Us too. All month we’re throwing down the gauntlet: 31 days, no jeans, game on. Don’t worry; it’s easy with daily jeans-free outfit inspiration. Want more? We’re rewarding a stylish reader every week who shares a non-denim selfie using the hashtag #NoJeansJanuary with  SG-approved swag.

Lately, it seems everything old is new again. Y’know, like fascism!

Just as It Can’t Happen Here, Sinclair Lewis’s 1935 eerily prescient political novel has been once again climbing the charts in 2017, All the President’s Men, the classic 1976 film about two Washington Post reporters uncovering the Watergate scandal, feels very on-trend right now.

The movie, dubbed, “the most devastating detective story of this century,” certainly brings up some unsettling parallels to our current political climate. What else is devastating? Robert Redford’s smokin’ style. (Ed. note: How’s that for a hairpin turn segue??)

Redford plays WP journo Bob Woodward, who, along with his partner Carl Bernstein (a boyishly handsome Dustin Hoffman), uncovers a break-in at the Democratic Party National headquarters right before the 1972 election.

While both nail the rakish, “Oh, this ol’ thing?” lived-in American sportswear wardrobe vibe later immortalized in The Official Preppy Handbook, it’s Redford whose style star shines brightest in the film. The standout? A three-piece corduroy suit I want to cut open and live inside, like Leo and that bear in The Revenant.
Now grab your notebooks and take some notes, SG cub reporters, because this is a look you won’t want to forget.
