Normally when people see me at events, in photos or on Instagram I tend to be dressed up, and as I’m sure you’ve guessed, that isn’t always the case. Often I can be found in a tee and skinny jeans, and colorful hoody, though never in track pants, unless I’m at the gym. I have standards after all. So recently when shopping I stopped in at Bench to add some much needed clothing to my casual collection and maybe even a new bag to go along with it.
Let me clarify casual, casual is not sloppy, it’s not looking like a bum. Point made. Let’s continue!
So I tried on some great jackets, sports shirts, casual pants. I even tried on some track pants, though I didn’t leave with any.
I did end up finding some great jeans, which I was actually surprised about as when I thought about bench, the first thing that comes to mind isn’t jeans. But none the less I tried, and to my surprise, they were the perfect fit, the style was great and the look was also something that could be casual or dressed up. I paired the jeans with the perfect ombré grey top and picked up a maroon duffle bag to go together with my latest casual find. Pair that with some great marble boots from Dr Martens, a simple jacket from H&M and there you have it, the perfect everyday look for really any guy.
Casual to me? Simple, classic, comfortable. Check.
