Jake Gallagher of Wax Wane fame has been one of my favorite bloggers/ menswear writers for a while. His content is always thought provoking and I feel like I learn something every time I read a piece of his work. But more than anything else, he has become an inspiration to me on how to dress casually.
To be honest, I struggle mightily when it comes to dressing casually. I am much more comfortable in a jacket, shirt, and tie heading to work. It is on the weekends that I have difficulty putting looks together that I 100% like. This is where observing Jake has begun to help me.
Beginning with his In Medias Res shoot with the talented Christopher Fenimore, I began to appreciate his formula: A nice outerwear piece, button down shirt, comfortable broken in chinos or jeans, and loafers. Sounds simple right? Well it is, but do not be fooled. This works especially well because the fit of his clothes and their proportions are perfect for his body. Plus his clothes aren’t wearing him. He is wearing them.
Thanks for the inspiration Jake.
