Vintage Levi’s Shorts Outfit
I decided to create ‘Your Average Guy‘ as a platform for all things fashion related, but uniquely for men’s everyday fashion items that can be worn easily, yet stylishly. Catwalk exclusive pieces have their place in the world, with all their outlandish designs and blinding colour schemes, but for the average guy, they are something that cannot be worn so carefree. As such, I will be focusing mainly on simple, well fitting, classic fashion items with the occasional sprinkling of panache, when us average guys want to step out of our safe zones! So, without further a do I will be sharing with you my first casual style outfit post.
For my first outfit, you couldn’t get any simpler and casual for the average guy. Fitted Tee, denim shorts, and trainers. Summer may be tailing off, but it’s still warm enough to bare the legs for now.
I’m wearing a pair of vintage Levi’s denim shorts, in a gorgeous medium blue distressed wash. I had spent what seemed to be an insurmountable time throughout the early part of the summer trying to find a great pair of vintage shorts. This task in itself was quite daunting, finding the correct fit along with a wash that had aged perfectly took many failed attempts. Finally I came across this pair at Urban Outfitters under their Urban Renewal section. With a vibrant mid blue, featuring a natural subtle distressing, I’d finally succeeded in completing my goal.
I paired these vintage Levi’s denim shorts with the most universal of tops, a slim fitted t-shirt from ASOS in one of my personal favourite colours of the moment – light grey marl. An otherwise basic white with an all over hint of grey speckles, adding some much needed depth. To finish off the look is a pair of Adidas Hamburg in shock red gum, adding a splash of colour to an otherwise muted outfit. Usually I keep my distance from sports footwear, nevertheless I was drawn to the spectacular colour. Accessory wise, I am wearing my favourite watch – the Omega Aqua Terra Seamaster automatic watch with a blue face, and a pair of Ray-Ban Aviator Sunglasses with Green Flash Lenses. Is this an everyday style you would wear? Please comment below!
What a fabulous blog, much needed Adam, and you look great 🙂
Thanks very much Ali! 🙂
Nice look. 🙂 I think those green glasses are fabulous. 🙂 I like the colour of the shirt too as a great alternative to white.
Thanks! Yeah, the green tint of the sunglasses is really cool 🙂
In fact, even though temperatures will fluctuate through the fall, the right to enjoy a run in the perfect pair of shorts isn’t seasonal
Oh yeah, I wear shorts throughout the year!
