’90s Throwback Guess Original Tee

Guess logo tee

Growing up in the 90s, I recall logo tees and designer jeans being the “in thing”. That trend has been making it’s comeback for the last few years. I see the old logo tees my older brother was rocking in the ’90s all over the place. From Tommy Hilfiger to Guess, you can’t escape it! And after making my most recent purchase, I’ll admit that I don’t want this trend to ever end!

As I was walking at my local mall, I saw this black Guess oversized logo tee that I needed in my life. When I tried it on, I fell in love. The look and fit was perfect!

This past weekend, I had to take my new shirt for a ride, and I had no regrets about making this purchase. I paired my oversized tee with a new pair of Zara torn skinny jeans, my favorite Chucks and my tan suede cap.

If you’re into oversized tee like me, I recommend adding this throwback into your collection. As a ’90s kid, I’m loving this trend, and you can expect to see me rocking it throughout the season.

Now, let me find the perfect pair of acid jeans!

Denim and Ties

Growing up I was use to seeing people either dressed formal or casual and nothing in between. Today it’s nothing new to see a man wear a button up with denim, but I want to talk about how to make that look even better.

Gone are the days of classic fit dress shirts, classic fit jeans, and chunky dress shoes. If you have these items I suggest donating or throwing them away. Switch the classic fit dress shirt for a slim fit shirt, relaxed denim for slim or skinny jeans, chunky shoes for loafers, and add a skinny tie. Take a look at how the denim and tie concept looks on me below.

Let’s face it, the slim fit dress shirt gives you a clean look that compliments the body. When I worked at DKNY, lots of young customers came in for slim fit dress shirts. I asked a customer once, “what do you personally like about slim fit dress shirts?” He replied by saying that it made his entire outfit look sleek and refined. Next time you are at your favorite retailer, ask an associate to help you pick out a shirt size and colors. My favorite stores to visit for dress shirts are DKNY, Express, and Calvin Klein.

Now in order to have the denim and tie look you need the tie. A slim fit dress shirt is complimented by a slimmer tie, a 2″ or 2 1/2″ tie are perfect sizes for this look. My favorite website to buy ties is The Tie Bar¬†they carry silk, wool, linen, knitted, solid, or printed ties starting at $15. The type of tie you want is all up to you, my only suggestion is to pick one that will balance out with your shirt.

Now for the denim! I know not all guys are comfortable with skinny jeans, so another option are slim jeans. A slimmer jean, like a slim dress shirt give you a cleaner look. Classic or relaxed denim have a fit that are exaggerated and tend to drag on the floor. Today’s retailers either have a small section for these two types of jeans or have stopped selling them completely. Brands have different perceptions of fits, pick a day to head to the mall and try on denim at different retailers.

All that’s left are the shoes, as a shoe lover this is my favorite part. You have a variety of options when it comes to shoes, but stay away from the chunky shoes. That type of shoe won’t work for a slimmer look and let’s be honest they are hideous. Great shoes to pick are derby shoes or loafers, for my look I went with a black snake skin loafer. Loafers are a perfect example of a shoe that can dressed up or down. I recommend picking a dress loafer instead of a casual loafer, your jean will already give you the casual look. My favorite website to shoe shop are Stacy Adams, Steve Madden, and Cole Haan.
