The Urban Graduate [a.bloke.named.Glen]

with 4 comments



In efforts to be dog wide and not as useless as a chocolate teapot, I’d like to present a post on one of my favorite woolens, glen plaid.  The name hails from the valley of Glenurquhart in Iverness-shire, Scotland.  It’s been around for yokes but it never goes out of season.  A nice glen plaid suit lets you get your grown man on without looking like a dickey dazzler.  If you don’t want to spend a lot of sheckels then you can buy an article of cover with the same woven twill design.  Say for example, a nice pair of trousers or an accessory of some sort.



Don’t forget that my ould mucker Pee Wee Herman (before he showed his arse) made the glen plaid suit his personal uniform for years.  See any similarities?

  4. There was actually a really good article in one of the last 2 GQs, i dont remember which one, about the basics a man should have. It was like a nice grey suit, and a form fitting, knee length top coat, to update a classic overcoat look. Another one i liked was the “university” scarf – a scarf from your school to add a touch of collegiate bad boy to the professional look
