Hey styleforum, give me more ideas on how to wear my blackwatch blazer. I love it but can't wear it without feeling very #menswear

You don't have to always think about the future, but it is worth considering. Especially with the shit job market right now. It's hard enough to get a job when you do everything "right" nevermind when you take a break to "find yourself"

^just embrace the #menswear aesthetic. it's easy to dable and is an aesthetic that gets more hate than it deserves because of tumblr bloggers jumping on hype-trains but frankly it can look pretty cool with little buy-in.



idk I and a lot of my friends have beenworking meh entry-level corporate jobs and we still manage to lead enjoyable lifestyles. there's nothing that i'm like "oh shit i wish i didn't have my job so i can do X and engage in some 'personal growth' experience." Maybe that's because college for me was like 4 years of summer camp and I got burnt out from it.

just keep it compartmentalized and lead a rich life outside of work. maybe it's because I happen to enjoy activities that slot in nicely with a "yuppie" lifestyle (games, the gym, cooking, etc). and because I have enough days off to go on week-long trips abroad but having money to do the shit i want is really, really nice

Yeah it's just what came to mind in my closet. Just pairing it with darker/grungier stuff will look cool. Sage green Levi's cords rolled/cuffed, your FB boots, cheap flannel would look rad too

Pray tell, what field do you work in, to find that this is indeed the case?

Thanks for all the tips guys, I need to buy some more flannels. They'll probably look a lot better with what I'm going for than oxfords.
