Menswear Look of the Week: Out of the Park
After six nail-biting games against the L.A. Dodgers, the Cards made it to the World Series. No surprise there. Now that we’ve stepped up to the big-big-leagues, it’s time for guys to step up in the big-league style realm. Here’s how you show your hometown pride with a gameday style revamp.
Keep your look casual and not kitschy. Instead of wearing the average Cardinals garb (which is totally acceptable by any other standards), try playing up navies and reds in these upscale basics. The V-neck sweater has a cool varsity detail on the neck and the wrists, plus it’ll keep you warm when night falls. Pair it with dark selvedge jeans, like these from Naked & Famous, Gola sneakers that tie in a cool vintage red, and, of course, a raglan Cards cap.
If you’re heading to a day game for the series, throw on these Oliver Peoples sunglasses (in a killer woodsy shade) and call this look complete. The bag is an added bonus here: not necessary, but it could be useful, especially if you’re bringing a few brews to a pre-game tailgate. Mix and match this look according to your own style, and you’ll look like you’re sitting behind home plate even if you’re in the nosebleeds (or watching from the pub down the street.)
