Denise’s post on 11 fashion accessories that make any guy hotter got me thinking about how I’d want the ideal man to dress. Which is not to say that clothes are super duper important when it comes to dating, or that I would bludgeon any guy I date into wearing what I want him to wear, but in the spirit of fantasy, this is how I’d like my dream dude to dress.
I’m trying to think of a term for it: Vintage with a twang? Retro rockabilly? Modern day speakeasy? Well-dressed hipster? Prepster?
The style includes things like tailored vests, ties, button-downs with rolled up sleeves, skinny pants with oxfords or boots, open cardigans, suspenders, fedoras. Hair is usually short, with a little bit of scruff, or sideburns. They don’t have to be ultra skinny, but I think it looks best on guys who are on the leaner side.
It just so happens that most guys who can pull off this look are musicians, like Mumford and Sons (above). In case you can’t tell, I also have a major thing for musicians.
The Avett Brothers rock their vests.
John Paul White (also, a Johnny Depp lookalike) from The Civil Wars.
Does anyone else love it when guys dress like this, or am I an anomaly? Also, if you are a dude who’s reading this and you dress like this, you know how to find me…
