Men’s Shopping Guide: What To Wear For Labor Day Weekend
Labor Day Getaway!
Guess what?? It’s another three day weekend and I have absolutely ZERO plans. So instead of feeling like a loser I’m just gonna get drunk and imagine that I’m going away to the Hamptons or somewhere equally “cool” and fancy with an unlimited credit card limit and a hot man to keep me company. Here’s what I’d bring with me. A cute bathing suit (short shorts obvs) so the boyz will holler, a hat (the Asian pompadour and beach winds/ocean water do not mix), some sunnies, a faded pair of “Dad” jeans, comfy sneaks, a few casual shirts, and a canvas tote to throw them all in. And there you have it. Everything to take you from the beach to the bar (and then hopefully someone else’s bed) as I celebrate the end of summer/beginning of New York Fashion Week/start of school, on my imaginary getaway. Here’s hoping that you’re all much better off than me and have actual fun plans (besides reading Closet Freaks). Happy early Labor Day everyone!

Outfit: Men’s Fashion Sweatpants & Sweatshirts
No Sweat!
I’m so happy “fashun sweats” are becoming a thing. I mean casual and comfy doesn’t have to mean sloppy anymore. In fact, sweats are actually considered kinda “elevated” and “luxe” now. *Puts quarter in the PR buzzword jar.* I’m all about a movement where my pajamas can double as actual going out clothes. You’ll never be late for work again! Hungover? Just roll out of bed in your designer jammies, throw on some shades, and pop a breath mint. No one will ever have to know. Whether they’re dropcrotch, tapered leg, or embellished with leather - these aren’t your average Walmart Mom sweats. Check out some of my favorite options below - the lazy teen in you will thank me later.

7 Men’s Shoes To Wear Sockless This Spring
Go Sockless This Spring!
Okay, well not completely sockless because I do recommend peds for uhmm…odor and sweat reasons if the shoe allows it.  But really though. Let those ankles breathe this spring! Why? A) Because who needs sweaty socks during the warmer months. B) It’s a great way to get rid of that ugly sock tan when wearing shorts. C) Less laundry? I mean, I hate matching up socks when it comes to folding time, don’t you? So roll up your chinos and cuff those jeans and let’s dare to show off some “skin.”
