Sam’s style | Argyle + layers

As promised in yesterday’s post, here’s another opportunity to highlight my husband Sam’s cool style. Yesterday, a shoes selfie; today, a regular selfie!

Sam is such a pro at layering. And layering with interesting pieces. I’d also like to think my love of color-coordination has rubbed off on him. I mean, a brown argyle sweater cardigan over a a grey button-front, paired with a grey fedora with a brown ribbon, PLUS cognac-tipped shoes that tie in with the cognac diamonds in the argyle print. That is master-level color-coordination that also doesn’t come off as gimmicky. PRO.

Sam and I both love these shoes, which have a kind of old-school but classic look. I think they’re his current favorite right now. They’re from Payless! My husband’s a vegetarian, so we have to get shoes made out of man-made materials, rather than leather — which is harder than you’d think! But Payless always has at least some options with faux leather.

Details of Sam’s outfit:

  • Overcoat:  Zara, bought years ago in Abu Dhabi
  • Sweater cardigan:  Zara? Also bought in Abu Dhabi
  • Button-front:  ???, old
  • Jeans:  Gap, new
  • Shoes:  Payless, new
  • Fedora:  Goorin Bros., bought in Portland a few years ago

I go back-and-forth on whether or not I should provide outfit details when I highlight my husband’s outfits. Would y’all prefer me to include outfit details or not for Sam’s outfits? Please leave a comment and let me know!

    Yes you should! Sam has great style, and we all have men in our lives that we need to shop for on occasion….husbands, sons, fathers, brothers, friends! Sam looks great, I love his hats! And I want those shoes!

      I know, right?! Sam likes to downplay his style, saying it’s all my influence. I have had some influence — couples can’t be together 20+ years without influencing each other in many ways! — but he has sound sartorial instincts all on his own 🙂

    Looking sharp, Sam. Like the layers & the animal friendly shoes, too! 🙂 Nice to include details, too, Jen.
