Sorry for the pause in posting but it has been an interesting couple of days (I’ll save THAT story for another post).  But anyway Im here with a new Match Maker for the cosmopolitan Urban Graduate.  A keffiyeh is a nice introduction to wearing a scarf.  But it’s also really trendy, and if you wanna show that you are truly refined and have a fashion sense then you might want to pick up a real scarf.  A keffiyeh is cool for few occasions, but do it too much and you’ll start to look like Piccolo from Dragon Ball.  The good thing about a real scarf is that you can still be casual but if you wanna throw on something “after-five” thats fine too.  So I’ve decided to compile a post of different scarves and some accompanying bottom suggestions.  Your welcome.

The Urban Graduate [in.vest.ment]

There’s no doubt about it, one of the most overlooked fall/winter essentials is the down vest. For some reason, us guys want to continue to act like it doesn’t exist. We figure, hell, what’s the purpose of a middleman?! Either go all the way, or not at all. — How terribly wrong! Urban Grads, the down vest should be invited back into your wardrobe. The trick is, don’t overdo the investment — go for a fitted look, low on bulkiness, and a distinct color/lining combination. Observe.

The Down Vest should hug the shoulders, be close to the body, and have a distance from seam to seam of 4 to 5 inches. Throw a henly underneath or a contrasting oxford for a fashionable dressed down look.

You could also achieve a dressed-up look by adding a fitted button-down and neckwear (although this guys tie is extremely wack…c’mon my grandfather owns that one). Bottom line, invest in functional outerwear — The Down Vest is a 3 season player! Put it in the game.
