Urban Style featuring Gant, Scotch & Soda, and Etro

     One of the keys to great style is having a diversified portfolio.  It's easy to stay within your comfort zone, but this can pigeon-hole you into a specific style.  You don't have to to buy an entire wardrobe for specific styles such as urban, street, American classic, or hipster, but core items in your wardrobe can be remixed into different styles.

     For example, the Gant plaid shirt below was used previously in a casual American classic style (Casual Weekend).  But in my recent shoot, the Gant shirt was used in an urban style outfit.  Instead of clean lines and heavy materials as above, I paired the shirt with slightly baggy-distressed jeans and boots.

     The emphasis of this urban style was to look a little disheveled.   It has a tough "I don't care" feel to it.

     The small-clean accessories that I typically use were replaced with heavy pieces such as the bulky belt and heavy leather boots.
