Outfit of the Week: March 22, 2013

Give it up for our #OOTW winner, Khoi!

You’ve just earned yourself a month’s platinum subscription to FreshNeck, Khoi. Congrats!

 

Khoi calls this the “the 3C-look: casual, chic and comfort.” And yes, he got major points for naming it.
Here’s what he had to say about his winning look:

This was taken the day I was ready to leave for Vietnam for a 6 week vacation. I just returned and boy did I have the time of my life. It was the best trip ever. Anywho, I wanna breakdown what I’m wearing and why I wore what I did.

I have on an H&M paper straw fedora. I live in Philadelphia and it’s a cold winter. Not particularly fedora rocking weather, but it was warm that day, so I decided to go with it. Plus my destination of Vietnam is tropical climate, so it is kinda appropriate. Of course I’m wearing a smile, lol.

The shirt I’m wearing is a military style button down from Express that has the button and sling for me to roll up my sleeves if it got hot later in the day at the airport. I have layered an Express polo underneath in case I get really warm later on and still want to look fashionable.

The belt is brown leather from Perry Ellis.

For my trousers I went with H&M stretch chinos. The stretch being key here for comfort. Being on a plane for so many hours, comfort is just as important as looking my best I think. The pants are rolled at the bottom because A. they’re too long, and B. so I can show off my snazzy purple and blue polka-dotted socks. I love socks that just pop, it brings color and life to any outfit. And then for the kick game, I was rocking my new Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes. I just loved the earthy feel with the green just providing a little extra flavor, but not standing out too much.

Megan’s Take: I mean, what can I say that Khoi hasn’t already (thanks for the thorough description Khoi!) Here’s what had Khoi topping the rest of the well-dressed guys who submitted their outfits for consideration this week: 1) the tuck. I love that Khoi tucked his shirt in – and to travel, no less! It’s a really easy way to look more pulled together, and 2) the thought! Khoi clearly put thought into his outfit, and at the end of the day, that’s really what us ladies are looking for – a guy who thinks about what he does, from what he wears to how he treats us. Thoughtfulness is key.

Gabi’s Take: Khoi reallllly nailed it with the fit. He was able to layer a polo under his button up without looking bulky. And his colors totally work for spring, but aren’t wrong for a cooler day in March. I also love that Khoi named his outfit; I think I’m going to start doing that!

Here are the details for his outfit, in case you missed in his description:

  • Fedora – H&M (similar)
  • Shirt – Express
  • Polo (underneath) – Express
  • Belt – Perry Ellis
  • Pants – H&M
  • Shoes – Sperry Top-Sider
