Steal Style from Grandpa’s Closet

One of my favorite pieces in any man’s wardrobe is a sport coat.  It’s so versatile, it can be worn in so many different ways, it can be worn with so many different clothes, and it can be dressed up or dressed down for literally any occasion.

The checkered/plaid look is booming.  Match it with the appropriate khakis and boom!  Chances are, Grandpa’s jacket may need some tailoring if you found a keeper.  Not to worry though, stores have brought this look back.  Check out Banana Republic and J. Crew.jon_hamm_plaid_coat

Blazers are always an item that will be in style, or at least socially acceptable.  Go find a solid blue, short blazer, tailor it up and do it right.woe-japanese-blazer-style-sunglasses-650x432

The tan/khaki sport coat kills it with almost any undershirt and any pair of dark pants.  Do it to it Lars.dsc_01691
