men's fashion. yup, that's the blog subject on this morning



i have to tell you men in denim shirts are everywhere.

and i am helpless to resist any of them. any-a-one.

the first night i was in chicago, my girlfriend amanda and i headed out to a bar (remind me to tell you that story later on--it's not a bad one) and i spent the night with my eye on a guy from france in a light, blue, denim, long-sleeved thing of wonder.

heaven was he in that shirt!

and then i returned to new york and voi-la! they are everywhere--men in denim shirts are everywhere!

is it just me or did this happen overnight?

and the thing is, i've yet to see a bad-looking guy try to pull one off.

{okay, okay, there was that one man, but it was a short-sleeved denim shirt and we were in midtown, and well, it just did not work, so i'm gonna chalk that one up to, the half-sleeve missing}.

and then there's the matter of the new haircut going round. shaved on the sides, full on top. very old-school, military. or something.

lord help me, sometimes i just adore being young, single, and unafraid to gawk.

and gawk i do.

French guys are masters at wearing button-downs in a really relaxed way with the sleeves scrunched up. So hot. Thank you, American men, for finally taking note!

Katie said...

jennyjones said...

Kayla said...

Sounds perfectly dreamy. Can you send some of those hot yankee men to this southern girl?

yes, that hair cut always does it for me. Can we say classy yet manly? ahh so sexy!

Anait said...

I have a weakness for French Guys.....wearing anything! ;) But now I might just have to drag the bf to try on a denim shirt....

Alex said...

That hair. That hair. THAT HAIR.

Sonja said...

Stylish boys were once a very rare breed, but I believe you are correct...it seems this species is indeed reappearing.
Lucky us. :o)

tu y yo said...

Oh man, I'm totally in love with that haircut too. Military is such a good way to describe it!

wildchild said...

ha no shame in gawking at all. there are some gorgeous men out there. and that haircut! my boyfriend's in the air force and has the real military thing going on and i just swoon. swoooooon.

Kristyn Ellen said...

LOVE that man's hair. Can you imagine if he were wearing a denim shirt too? Haha.. too much?

Jessa said...

Hell, I'm married and I gawk with the rest of them! I have to say, the men around here aren't as gorgeous as the ones you're describing (and that picture? DROOL.) but when I see one, hoooo Lordy.

ha, so funny, I was just thinking the other day how much I love this new haircut trend- shaved on the sides, full on top- pair that w/ some great glasses and it's all over!

There is nothing wrong with gawking at people- I do, too!!! I am not a denim person, but I like one denim jacket I have. I like the Paris sweater in the photo, but I wear 98% Polo Ralph Lauren. That is my favorite brand, and it seems to be all i buy!

Devin said...

Hahaha! this was hilarious! I've noticed that a ton in Chicago recently! especially on campus! Though, I am not a single lady, so I can't say too much about these men... :)

My boyfriend actually got a similar haircut to what you described, and at first he wasn't overly confident with it.. but I dig it! It's very clean but still playful.

I cut my husband's hair like that a little bit ago. The reception from his male workmates was, "It's longer in some parts than others." True that, guy. Well spotted. Women may be easier to impress. His mom loved it.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i'm sort of loving that hair too. a lot.

Nicajoice said...

Haha... My handsome Korean teacher had that haircut some months back and I thought it was ridiculous... but on second thought, it's actually charming, just quite strange at first. :D love your blog! I'm a new follower ^^

Kayleigh King said...

That's one smokin' haircut!

Taylor said...

I just wish I lived somewhere where men dressed in something other than jeans in a T-shirt and those don't even fit them properly. It's so sad. I need to move.

dull boy said...

he is smoking, so that makes him a knob in my book!

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

My husbands hair is like that, I love it! I have never seen men in denim shirts before, I will have to keep an eye out. And the comment above mine is hilarious!

Brea Marie said...

My boyfriend has the hair and the endless denim shirts! haha. I haven't gawked in a while...perhaps I need to get some ladies together and go gawking ;)

super cute post! its true about the shirts though!

Paula said...

Nothing better than getting in some good man watching! :)

I haven't yet seen any of this denim business! Perhaps because I'm in Florida... maybe more towards... January. :-/

Have fun gawking! I'm interested to see if the denim shirts make it to the FLA.

anna said...

those european men just know how to dress.... that's the reality of it!

Stephanie said...

Then you have to come to Sweden. What you describe is practically the Stockholm man's uniform... I adore this haircut as well. And suspenders, sigh.

sarah nicole said...

It's happening in SLC and we love it here too. <3

xo,

Sarah

Kate said...

I haven't seen any here. But then again I live in the middle of a cornfield where all the guys are either "gangster" or "country."
