This week's profile is Leo Mulvihill Jr. of Fishtown, Philadelphia. Philly fashion guru Sabir Peele tells us why Leo is this week's That Guy.
What I like about this look?
Leo’s pattern blazer made this outfit stand out. He shows us that a well-tailored sport coat and moleskin trousers can be a great option for the non-suit wearer.
Where could this outfit be worn?
This look would be a great alternative to your traditional suit that you would wear to your office. Even though the blazer is patterned, the details and color and subtle enough that you don’t appear to be going for the "peacock" effect with your outfit. The overall color palette of this looks is very consistent with the fall and winter season, so this look will go over well at any holiday party.
Where could you buy this particular look?
Pick up a pair of great shell cordovan shoes from brand like Allen Edmonds, Johnston & Murphy or Ralph Lauren. Cordovan leather is extremely durable and you will get a good wear out of it for many years. He went with a moleskin trouser for this look instead of your traditional wools or cotton. Brands like Ralph Lauren, Gap and Orvis carry moleskin trouser at reasonable prices and they vary from traditional to modern fits. Plaid blazers have made a huge come back in the past few years with brands like Zara, J.Peterman and Orvis adding them to their collections.
He was smart by opting for a blazer with a relax shoulder, which is something that all guys should take into account when selecting a blazer. A relaxed shoulder contours to the shape of your shoulders. If you want to dress down this look, add a pair of dark rinse, selvedge jeans while keeping the cordovan shoes the same. If you decided to go with a pattern sport coat be sure to go with deep, rich colors that will transform well from the office to a night out.
