Styling a Harrington Jacket Steve McQueen Style

Casual weekend wear for over 40 men: Harrington jacket \ white t-shirt \ grey chinos \ white Converse | Silver Lononder, over 40 menswear blog
This outfit is certainly a simple ensemble - a white t-shirt topped with a Harrington jacket, grey chinos and classic Converse All Stars, it didn't require much in the way of preparation time which is a good thing.

A Harrington jacket and white t-shirt are very 'Steve McQueen style' and the Converse are just as stylish today as they have ever been... a timeless classic it's fair to say. >>

I don't think this outfit is necessarily lacking in colour, all the items I'm wearing work well together. If I introduced a pattern or vibrant colour into the outfit, I think it would spoil the aesthetic of how simple it should be.

  1. I know many guys are afraid of color, and this outfit totally works in those situations!!
    Luckily, my husband has been embracing more colors lately since we got married!! But he'd wear this in a heartbeat!

    1. I know what you mean Jodie!
      Men aren't naturally drawn to colour matching when it comes to putting an outfit together, it's good to hear the hubby is giving it a go!
      I myself don't instinctively do it either... maybe there's hope for us yet.

      Take care

  2. I agree with Jodie although my Hubs is still a little colour shy ;-) This is simple to re-create too, which helps him.

  3. I tend to migrate toward muted colours MT; browns, grays, blues... reds make me a bit nervous (yep) but we'll see how brave I'm willing to get on the inter-web...
    (cue nervous laughter to self)!!

    Have a great week!
