Well it’s Monday people, but not just any Monday, Bandaloop is going to be performing downtown, but wait, there’s more! They’ll be performing…wait for it…on the SIDE of the UBS building about 20 stories up! Yeah, just another Super OZ production! So of course I’m heading down there, me and JC’ (bike) that is! So, I’m going to need something functional. Because I need to be swift to beat the rain and just warm enough to hold off the strong winds. This sounds like a job for…JOGGERS! That’s right, I’ve been sitting on these bad boys since Labor Day, but it’s time to break em’ out!
Where there’s water, there’s my trusty waterproof, Lunargrand Boots! So versatile that one can easily ride a bike through the city…like me, while not sacrificing any Style. $278
Now let’s discuss these super Joggers!
The common mistake that many men make when deciding to rock joggers is they buy cheap. You don’t want a pair off of Karmaloop or something like that, you want to go the high end route like, Express or Banana Republic, like me and I know what you’re thinking, BR isn’t really “High End,” but in comparison okay. LoL generally you’re going to get a better fit and quality of materials & make. So it’s worth the extra cash. Now that Joggers are popular, more quality retailers are getting on board so they shouldn’t be too hard to find.
I’m a fan of the zipped pockets! I think it gives them a more formal look than regular sweats which is exactly what I wanted, because I don’t want to be too laid back, I want a nice balance. I am labeling my Fall/Winter Style, “Rock-Hop Tailored!” The Lower End Joggers generally don’t have pockets. So there’s that. The more expensive Joggers don’t break funny either, they maintain a nice silhouette. Which is what you want. And finally the extra long tassels, I’ve been designing pants like that for years, I’ll show you the sketches! I’ve always been ahead of my time, but just another reason these are perfect. Didn’t think this much went into a pair of Joggers did you? Oh and how could I forget the best part!? They’re SUPER Comfortable! LoL $40 (on sale)
I found the top, as far as balancing the Joggers with your everyday attire, to be a bit tricky. The Wrong top can make you seem lid you got dressed in the dark, which is another reason why you don’t want to rock cheap materials. My favorite vintage button up is perfect for today along with my Merona rain jacket. It’s going to be fun creating this Style! Shirt $Free.99 Jacket $40
