C- Diddy, Air Guitar Champion, bringing it home for the win.
Just because you’re relaxing on the weekend doesn’t mean you need to look like a slob.
This Bro certainly isn’t over dressed but I guarantee you drop him into a afternoon BBQ or dive bar he’ll probably be one of the best dressed there. It looks completely casual but still stylish.
To attain this look simply ditch your jeans and get some chinos. Chino’s now aren’t what you expect from 9-5 cubicle work wear. Some of my favorites are from JCrew and Dockers. They’re cut slim but not hipster scum slim.
J Crew Chino in Urban Slim Fit – $75
If your name isn’t Steve Jobs then ditch your running shoes and find yourself a white canvas shoe. Yea I know it’s winter but I’m in San Diego. I have no idea what that word is. personally prefer a slim and sleek shoe.

There you go. Now you don’t look like that Bro! Remember you can buy all these clothes and wonder why you still look sloppy. Most likely you’re buying clothes too big. These clothes shouldn’t be skin tight but also not baggy.
The fit is spot on for everything here which gives it a great modern prep feel. I like how the herringbone blazer just goes with the jeans.
This is by far my favorite style of jacket. It keeps you incredibly warm and has this great classically rugged look. Plus you can pop your collar on it without looking like a douchebag.
You can find peacoats at a military surplus store for as little as a $100. Currently Banana Republic and JCrew both got a pretty good sale going on right now for them as well. Finding your size online will be difficult but if you go into the store they hopefully will have your size.
If you want to go all out check out Indochino to get one made to measure.
