Arlo Weiner: Dressing Like A Man

Arlo Weiner: Dressing Like A Man fashionOne would surely tell a kid to get lost if he started ragging on your style. But Arlo Weiner, the newest and youngest correspondent for GQ certainly knows his shtick. Here are Weiner’s spring tips for men’s fashion…listen up boys, this kid knows a thing or two!

1) Suit Up: “A seersucker suit is great in summer. It’s a way to be fancy without being hot. I just got one from Brooks Brothers. You don’t need a special reason to wear it—in spring and summer I’ll wear it on any occasion.”

2) Get Back to Basics: “Wear black pants and a blue or white button-down with the top button open. You still look good but it lets the air in. That’s what I’m wearing right now. White is a good choice when it’s hot.”

3) Lose the Shorts: “You can wear shorts if you have to but only if it’s really really broiling hot. I only wear shorts if I’m going on vacation to a hot place like Palm Springs.”

4) Protect Your Head: “It’s starting to get hotter out so I needed a cap, but I don’t like wearing baseball caps—they don’t go with anything I wear. My dad found this one for me. I like the shape of it and I have lots of clothes that are black-and-white striped, so it’s a good match. Though I like giraffes more than zebras.”

5) Don’t Fade Away: “Never, ever, ever wear a faded shirt or ripped jeans. It’s sloppy! And it seems like you don’t care.”


Oh, and even though Weiner didn’t have it on his list, please stop sagging your pants. 



Thanks Men’s Rag!
