How to Style a Buffalo Plaid Shirt | Over 40 Smart Casual Menswear



Question, is there anything more comfortable than styling a buffalo plaid shirt, roll-neck and 7 For All Mankind jeans on a cold January morning? NO... I hear you cry, and you'd be right!

Weirdly, I only found out yesterday that what we call a lumberjack shirt in Blighty, is called a "buffalo plaid shirt" in the US of A... I kinda like that difference. >>

In itself, this ensemble is casual and goes together superbly. The jeans are a well crafted straight leg and texture nicely in the creasing details. The fabric is extremely soft which is no surprise because they are 100 % cotton and have just become my new best friend in the wardrobe, paired with classic brogues, you've got yourself a winning combination, my friend.

I love the look of a roll-neck at the moment and the vibrant plaid shirt gives an all round timeless statement... it goes without saying, every man should have a pair of reliable "never let you down" jeans in their armoury and that goes for the buffalo plaid shirt as well.

Make it so, gents, then your life will be complete!

Do you have jeans that are irreplaceable to you in your collection? Are they vintage, are there more holes than fabric but you can't throw them out, let me know...

  1. Loving the combination of the buffalo plaid with the denim! I like the roll neck also, as I think they look equally chic on men as they do on women.

    Take care,
    Daniella :)

    1. Hi Daniella, thanks for dropping by!
      Roll-necks are certainly "in" for us blokes at the moment and you're quite right to point out that it is a chic item of clothing, that crosses the sexes! The plaid and denim just works as well doesn't it..

      Have a great weekend (I insist)!

  2. I have a pair of high waist jeans that I bought from Asos and I wear them almost every day. I bought a size too small, so I can't buckle the button, but when I put on a long top, no one has to know! O_O
    Loving the lumberjack look you're sporting here! ^_^ I read in a magazine that this year the lumberjack men are in fashion. Praise the lord, finally some manliness and not that metro sexual crap!

    1. Hey Keit, as always, you tell it straight, I love that!
      I have to say, if men's fashion is steering toward a more "mans" man look... I'm all for that. It would be interesting to see what they would make of it on the catwalks of Europe, hahaha!!!

      Like you, I could live in jeans and Asos are so bloody amazing... last time I ordered some I tried on three pairs, couldn't make up my mind so I kept them ALL and I don't think I spent over 30 quid.

      Look at me, I'm rambling on, take care and I'll speak to you again sometime, thanks for dropping by.
