Modern Moves

A classical coat, seasoned with clear contemporary charm. Gliding into the New Year in this motion maven piece. 

Hey Dappers!
For many (myself included), life hits a pending plateau when the holiday hype wraps up. Back on the daily grind. That hustle and bustle behavior begging for coffee, in leu of peppermint lattes (while others still secretly sip it). 
…but let’s be real for a sec, does work ever end? We probably hustled harder to balance the gifting spree, no? Work didn’t end, but the ugly sweater/ tartan trouser parties sure made the workday hours more bearable. 
Anyways, stepping into 2018 simple and savvy this time round…thanks to this topcoat!
One of my goals this year is to be (more) mindful with the outfit choices. Same style, different perspective on fashion. I’m simply done wearing “filler outfits” that don’t feel 100% me. I think having a simple signature style (with a bit of personal flair) will help master my overall aesthetic state of mind…if that makes any sense!
Okay, let’s get to the outfit:)
I’m completely head over heels for this coat because a. the flattering flare fit, b. it flows perfectly with the wind c. the light grey color makes for a great palette cleanse away from the camels, charcoals and blacks. 
Light blue end-on-end shirts are my FOREVER JAM, and thought this light shirt from Slate and Stone complemented the light coat. It’s giving me all the #romanticvibes. Per usual, I tucked the shirt halfway through. The disheveled shirt look gives the outfit a laid back stance as opposed to a turtleneck. 
I’ve had these corduroy pants from J.Crew for yeeeeeeears now and are truly my ride or dies when the cold weather strikes. (I will cry profusely the day I see them rip) In case you’re wondering, they’re the 770 fit, which I highly recommend for any guy with thicker legs wanting a slimmer style.
Happy New Year, friends!
