Outfit of the Week: July 12, 2013

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Oct 17 2016

Congrats, Brady, the title of proud SG Outfit of the Week winner is yours!

You’ll get to experience what it’s like to buy jeans without the hassle, with a new pair from ZipFit Denim. Be sure to send in a picture of you in your new steez for the next #OOTW!

 

Here’s what Brady had to say about his look:

This week I went out to my favorite winery with my fiance and did some wine tasting, got a favorite bottle of locally grown Chambourcin, and enjoyed it in the vineyard. The Indiana summers are hot and sticky, and this year is no different. This day was in the high 80’s with some heavy humidity.

It’s nearly impossible to stay cool in this weather, so dressing minimally is key. I am wearing a color blocked MBxUniqlo polo with some tailored khakis (Gap Tailored Collection) and my Bass Weejuns. Gotta keep the pants cropped to let the breeze hit your ankles. Little things make all the difference when the weathers hot, no undershirt, no socks, no belt, and something to wipe your brow. I like to keep a bandanna/handkerchief in my back pocket so just a little is peeking out. It adds a touch of color and is extremely useful. Kinda like a pocket square for your pants, except there’s utility as well.

Im also wearing a TAG heritage collection timepiece and my Rx Sunglasses from Warby Parker. Prescription sunglasses are usually very expensive and not always the most stylish, so Warby Parker is DEFINITELY the way to go!

Gabi’s Take

It’s hard to go wrong with a bright and simple rugby stripe in a classic color combo and a pair of perfect-fitting khakis. And those loafers look equal parts classy and comfy. Brady could have gone untucked, but I’m glad he went with tucked. It’s more figure flattering AND makes him look like he spent time getting ready, which is always a good thing. A great example of when a little extra effort goes a long way. And that back pocket hanky, #swoon.

Megan’s Take

As usual, it’s the thought that counts, and I love how much thought Brady put into his outfit. Even the aspects I’m not crazy abaout (no belt?!), he did on purpose, and I respect that. Also, that Michael Bastian x Uniqlo polo – that one specifically – rocked my world when the collection launched; really, I wanted to see it on every guy I knew, so the fact that Brady snagged one for himself is pretty impressive. And I’ll agree with Gabi on the back pocket bandanna being majorly swoon-worthy. And on top of all that, a vineyard wine tasting date would sound good to pretty much every girl I know. Way to go, Brady.
