OUTFIT: Men’s Moto Jacket
I’ve been looking for the perfect leather biker jacket for a while now and I’m really loving the one I finally settled on. Even before I picked this one up, I already imagined what I’d wear it with. I pictured black skinnies, Converses, black sweaters, basically a lot of black. But then last weekend as I was heading out to brunch I just kinda threw it on over my “preppy-ish” outfit because I needed an extra layer for the cold and surprisingly I really liked the look. Like the contrast of the preppy tie and button down with the “edginess” of a moto jacket - kinda like Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl when she turns all badass in her school uniform. Anyway, I think it kinda strikes the perfect balance in the outfit and can’t wait to wear this jacket lots more.
OUTFIT: Men’s Printed Peacoat
I know I’ve been confessing my love for dark colors and solids this fall/winter but there’s still a place in my heart (and closet) for all the crazy prints that I love. Sure shelling out some hard earned money on a patterned pea coat may seem impractical but sometimes a statement jacket is worth it. When I saw this printed coat I knew it had to be mine and to be honest, it’s more versatile than I originally thought. The darker navy and green colors are not super loud so I can wear it with most of my wardrobe without screaming “look at me” but they also makes enough of a statement that will make people take a second look or at least spark some conversation. How do you feel about winter coats? Do you stick to solid neutrals or would you dare to play with pattern?

Outfit: Men’s Moto Jacket
This outfit basically combines three of my favorite things to wear for fall - leather, plaid, and sweats. And rather than going for traditional versions of these staples, I opted for ones that all had a little bit of a twist to them. This leather moto features mixed fabrics with the wool body and leather sleeves which I really liked. For the shirt, a traditional buffalo plaid gets a fresh update with an all-over star print which I thought was really fun. The sweatpants are not just any pair of black sweats. They’re cut super slim and feature nice details like the red silk lining in the pockets and the zippers at the hem. Sometimes mixing some unconventional pieces into your wardrobe is the perfect way to stand apart and showcase your personal style.

Outfit: Men’s Luxury Performance Wear
Tech & Tailored
So this is kind of a different post for me. I don’t normally post workout, ahem, “performance wear,” on the blog but I recently picked up some cool pieces that seemed worthy of a mention. You see since living in New York City it became widely apparent that I can’t just go schlubbing around in crappy gym clothes or sweats. Pajamas for a quick run to the deli have now been replaced by “fashion sweats” and my old college tees for working out have have now been upgraded to high-tech fancy-pants athletic wear.
The outfit by Number:Lab that I’m wearing here is almost too nice to wear to the gym at all. BUT, I’m glad I actually did because it’s as functional as it is stylish for exercising, sweating, and all that exhausting stuff I have to do to punish myself for eating so much pizza. Plus, I can now compete with all the yoga moms in their Lululemon - hay bitches!
The best part about luxury gym gear is that it’s also madddddd comfy and can totally pass as everyday fashunz. If you see me out at the bar in this just know that I probably came from the gym…
Speaking of luxury, I have one quick thing to say about this awesome v-neck. It’s basically handmade by thousands of magic elves to achieve a supersoft feel and a great tailored fit. I mean this shirt actually makes me look like I half-tried at the gym so clearly there’s something miraculous about it. Take a peek at some of the links below for more info and to see how you can purchase some of these items. And because I have the fanciest readers who only live “luxe”, Number:Lab is doing something a little special for you guys:
