#OOTD: Wear Your Chambray Shirt with Rugged Menswear Essentials This Season

Take it from me, folks — your next #OOTD should feature a classic chambray shirt this season. It’s a four-season menswear staple that we’ve long loved here at The Style Guide (just check out this 2014 piece), and it’s the perfect shirt to break out for fall and winter. Of course, a stylish chambray shirt is more than serviceable in the spring and summer, especially when teamed with classic leather sneakers, but the texture of cotton chambray just feels right when teamed with tough, rugged fall style essentials.  Rest assured, we’ve covered how to wear a chambray shirt before, but this one is amped up forr the season. And seeing as we got a late start to the fall this time around, now is as good a time as any to break out the Taylor Stitch Everyday Chambray Shirt that you see below. It’s a shirt that’s so simply made that every guy looks great wearing it. And I think you’ll find it teams up more than stylishly with accessories like classic dark denim and a tough waxed canvas jacket. That’s not the only reason you’ll love wearing it for the fall and winter — the Everyday Chambray Shirt is a great deal that’ll up any outfit (yes, even a casual weekend ensemble). With all of that being said, I’ll let the rest of this #OOTD do the talking. Thanks for reading!

A finely crafted chambray shirt teamed with durable essentials for perfect layering.

The Chambray Shirt: Taylor Stitch Everyday Chambray Shirt, $118 — Is this Taylor Stitch chambray shirt the best of the best? Maybe? It’s certainly a highly wearable, great-looking shirt for the colder months ahead.

The Jacket: Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket in Field Tan Waxed Canvas — $188— There’s no better jacket to break out for stylish layering than the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket — at least, that’s true when it comes to this particular combo.

The Pants: BANKS Roll Bedford Cord Jean in Dirty Denim, $75 — Textured jeans in a rich, deep color are a nice way to offset the striking blue of the Taylor Stitch chambray shirt seen here — BANKS does it right with this pair of classic denim.

The Boots: Sutro Footwear Alder Boots in Honey, $218 — Sutro Footwear builds its handsome boots with plenty of quality and just a bit of rugged edge — these rich leather captoe boots are a bit dressy and a bit casual, all at once.
The Belt: Sturdy Brothers Everyday Belt in Natural, $80 — When it comes to underappreciated style details, a dependable belt sits near the top of the list. Sturdy Brothers makes one that’s perfect for fall and winter, what with its rich leather.

The Socks: CHUP Vivienda Socks, $35 — You know that we’re fans of stylish socks here on the blog, right? The CHUP Vividena Socks are eye-catching and essential in terms of adding a bit of color to this #menswear ensemble.

The Watch: AVI-8 Flyboy Leather Watch, $269.95 — Need a stylish leather watch that adds a bit of understated style to this classic fall look? The AVI-8 Flyboy is the casual watch to buy now.

The Everyday Carry Essential: Makr Phone/Card Sleeve, $59.98 — Listen, we’ve all been there — right? If you’re like me, prone to dropping your phone, keeping your phone protected with a durable phone case is essential.

There are certainly plenty of ways to wear your new favorite chambray shirt, but this look is a personal favorite for your Style Guide author. Sharp, simple and filled with rugged fall layers, including the tough Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket as seen above. And that combo looks all the better when it stands out against classic Bedford Cord pants
and tan leather boots from Sutro Footwear. Of course, stylish men’s socks are needed to add a bit (or a lot) of visual interest, while the Sturdy Brothers Everyday Belt is a more-than-able accessory. On the watch front, the AVI-8 Flyboy plays off military inspiration in a way that’s subtle and stylish, potentially making it your favorite casual watch. Oh, and if you’re prone to dropping your phone *raises hand* the Makr Phone/Card Sleeve is the everyday carry essential you didn’t know you needed. All set to step out in perfectly casual-yet-sharp style? It’s really as easy as starting with the Taylor Stitch Everyday Chambray Shirt and going from there.
