    What I like about this look.

    The overall idea of layering a sweater with a button-up dress shirt is something that I like about this particular look. Mixing the dressier top pieces with jeans and boats is a cool concept that can look sartorial with the right execution.

    Where could this outfit  be worn?

    This look is perfect  to wear to class or a relaxed internship.

    Where can you buy this particular look?

    For a wide range of v-neck sweater in wool and cashmere fabrics try brands like; Lands End, H&M, Brunello Cucinelli and J.Crew. A striped, button up shirt is a great option to pair with the sweater look. Brands like Ralph Lauren, Ratio Clothing and Jack Wills have a variety of dress shirts that could work with just about any budget. Lastly, a pair of boat shoes can be that needed twist in your outfit. Sperry Top-siders, Timberland and even H&M have more boat shoes than you could possible handle right now, so pick up a pair.

    Style tip?

    Even though the concept of this outfit is admirable, I have a few suggestions.  To make this look a bit more refined, he will need to address the oversized-fit of both the sweater and dress shirt. A common mistake that a lot of guys make is going with a much larger sweater to wear over their collared shirt because they think it will give the best fit. When putting together a layered look, your sweater and collared shirt should be the same size. For better comfort, opt for a tailored-fit collared shirt. Once those proportions are set, you will see that your outfit will give you a better silhouette and not look bulky. Secondly, the wash and fit of this particular pair of jeans needs to be tweaked. When in doubt, go with a dark rinse jean in a straight or tapered leg. Just those two minor changes to the jeans, will give this look a modern look. Lastly, the boat shoes a great option for a sartorial twist in this look; however, the color of the shoes would complement the look better by going with a navy blue or darker brown.
