Hi guys! My friend Beau is taking over the blog today to discuss men's style. Beau is such a good sport for taking these photos in the freezing cold and snow! Take it away Beau!

"Hey, I'm Beau Riebe, a senior at the University of Iowa about to graduate in Economics! I've ventured all over the country, lived in a handful of places, but will always call Seattle my home. With spring *hopefully* coming around, I have been stocking my wardrobe with warmer spring colors. I shop Jackthreads a lot for essentials because of their low prices, which is something everybody can take advantage of. I think one of the most important pieces of fashion advice I can give other men is to buy something that fits - really fits. Don't let your t-shirt be a bra or your pants sag on the floor. Also, be confident in what you own. If you feel good, you look good, and that's huge! Lastly, don't be afraid to stand out. Trust me, the elephant in the room is not why you look so sharp, it's why everybody else doesn't. Show your swag."


I'm really digging the patterned pocket fabric that peeks out! The unexpected touches in outfits are what others will remember. I also agree with Beau on making sure things fit. I'm lucky enough that my mom is a great tailor (I've been to others and she's the best!), but by investing in a tailor, you'll notice a huge difference in the way you look and feel in your outfits. 

Thanks for reading, see you tomorrow :)
