Or at least, I hope this here blog has been helpful enough. If you still feel like I’ve been slacking (which is entirely possible!), then today’s new #OOTD is here to, well, pick up the slack.¬†¬†We’re talking how to style your new favorite pair of chukka boots.¬†Perhaps though, these rugged chukka boots — and Astorflex, the brand that makes ’em — aren’t new to you at all. In any case, they’re recently restocked, they’re made from sustainable materials in a classic silhouette, and they’re more than ready to pair up with the gear we’ve got in store for you today. The below outfit is one that just … works. From a casual weekend day of coffee and museum-hopping or a productive day at the office, we’ve got building blocks that’ll stand the test of time, from slim navy chinos to a durable spring jacket to a classic Oxford shirt. Oh, and those chukka boots. Let’s dig into the specifics more, shall we? Read on below.



All your outfit needs is a versatile pair of chukka boots to start things off … yes?

The Boots: Astorflex Greenflex Rough Boots in Sand, $155 —¬† You know Astorflex for their commitment to craftsmanship and sustainability — no better brand from which to buy essential chukka boots, ehh?

The Shirt:¬†Taylor Stitch The Jack in Blue Everyday Oxford, $98 –Is there a shirt easier to style than a truly timeless Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt? I’d wager perhaps not.

The Chinos:¬†CIVIC Frank Chinos, $128 — The partner brand of Taylor Stitch has set its focus squarely on sustainable fabric, tried-and-true designs and neutral, easy-to-style colors — you can find all of that in the CIVIC Frank Chinos.

The Socks:¬†Anonymous-ism Silk and Cotton Socks, $15 — You could certainly wear crew socks with this ensemble, but what say we roll up the¬†CIVIC Frank Chinos¬†and pair ’em with these well-made Anonymous-ism socks?
The Belt:¬†Beltology Radius Woven Belt in Olive, $60 — Because the small details count, a textured casual belt is going to add just enough visual interest to this outfit.
The Boxer Briefs:¬†CIVIC Merino Boxers in Heather Grey, $55CIVIC can even do merino boxers quite well — these are a recent offering from a brand that’s got everything taken care of for you.
The Watch:¬†Nezumi Studios Bailene Watch, $500 — The handsome and crisply designed Nezumi Studios Bailene Watch toes the tricky line between dressy and casual — quite nicely, at that.
As we’ve mentioned before, it really doesn’t get better on the footwear front — at least in terms of transitional spring style — than a pair of¬†essential chukka boots¬†that work for situations in the office and on the weekend. Style these durable boots with the right picks, including the highly versatile¬†CIVIC Frank Chinos¬†and that unbeatable¬†Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt, and you’ve got a look that’s hard to top. Seriously, even just those three pieces can take you to brunch, the bar, a business trip … you name it, they’ll do it. The small details are also going to aid you in terms of comfort and performance — take¬†merino boxers¬†from¬†CIVIC, for instance. And on your wrist? The¬†Nezumi Studios Bailene Watch¬†is as sharp a new timepiece as you’re liable to find around these parts. You also really can’t go wrong with Anonymous-ism socks¬†for a bit of spring-friendly style. To top it all off, you best throw on the durable, weather-ready¬†Relwen Sailcloth Tanker¬†— it doesn’t get better than that, it just doesn’t. So, where will this #OOTD take you?
