    I love the idea of this look for going on a date because he doesn't look like he's trying too hard, but he still looks really stylish. I used the Tyler in Raw Selvage because I love that it's a little bit slimmer. It's perfect with a coat because it's a little less bulky. I really like the heather grey and dark accent at the neck and that it's double breasted. It's such a cool look that you don't see every day.

    I love this for your holiday work party because you'll definitely be the best-dressed guy in the room. We used this maroon jacket, which I love because burgundy was such a strong color for fall. I used the Kane in Grey Melange - it's such a soft pant, almost like a cashmere or twill. We threw on the red plaid scarf because it's the holidays - you need a little plaid.

    This is the perfect outfit for those post- Thanksgiving drinks at a bar with friends. He looks cool and relaxed. I used the Kane in Crafted Tartan because I like the subtle use of plaid - it feels very holiday, but very minimal. We throw a cool jacket over it and boot for a masculine look.
