    That post from effortless gent is almost exactly what I wore out last night. Almost the exact same brands too. I feel so justified!


    It really depends on what you are doing "out." Sometimes it can be difficult if it is cold outside but a condensed dance type atmosphere inside. It can also be hard if you are frequenting many different bars. Sometimes I feel stupid for wearing a blazer because I just end up holding it and looking awkward. Other times it really works.

    I don't usually like untucked shirts, but untucked looks good coming out from under a denim jacket or other dark lightweight jacket

    I agree with AedanM. As a younger guy, I tend to wear polos and sport shirts to bars. It just seems more age/scene appropriate.

    Ah, Bardstown Road. Now that is a bar scene. Anything above a t-shirt or below a suit will work fine there and these gentleman have offered some fine examples. Most importantly, don't drink anything from Tennessee and pace yourself if you aren't used to a 4:30am last call.

    I would say go with an untucked shirt for a college age bar (if the shirt isn't really long). Having a casual shirt tucked into jeans looks a little stiff, in my opinion.

    Things guys for all the tips. I have a lot of plaids. Even a lot of great vintage ones. I don't have a desk job so most of my wardrobe is a more rugged street look. So I have everything you guys suggested thanks!

    I agree with everyone else. Assuming you're going somewhere that people your age tend to frequent, I would suggest to keep it casual. Dark jeans, brown shoes and a casual button up.

    khakis, brown casual boots, OCBD, and jean jacket would work too

    Wear anything you can wipe vomit off of easily.

    If you're going the sport coat route, make it corduroy or something similarly rugged, and keep the jeans with it.

    Those patterns are solid choices. Agreed on the whole "no tie" thing and denim pants. If you don't own (or don't like) flannel, work shirts are an option. Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time finding an example of a heavier one online since most places have rolled out their spring selections.


    Also, it looks like it's still cold where you are and most bars don't have coat checks so you'll have to hold onto whatever you walk in with. The less you bring in, the less you have to keep track of because it's highly likely that the place will be too hot to leave it on. If you can brave the cold while making it across the parking lot, it could save you the hassle once you get inside. Of course, some bars are busier than others, and how hot it gets will depend on how packed it is and how much people are moving around.


    And I guess the other question is... What pieces do you already have and how much do you have available to spend to fill in the gaps?

    Keep it extremely simple: dark jeans, OCBD ("vintagey cool" indicates plaid to me, which I'm sure there will be plenty of as there always is) and some sort of casual jacket (military or even a SC) if the weather merits it. And probably some casual boots like Dessert Boots.

    When I say top two, I mean in the image I shared. And when I say that, I mean wear both shirts at the same time. ;-)


    The bottom pattern is a little too preppy for what you're describing. Certainly the tie is WAY too preppy. =P

    For manly...I would go with the top two flannel shirts with dark denim, roll up the sleeves like BenR says, shoes he suggests, and have a blast.

    I live in Louisville, Kentucky. Which just had a great right up in GQ as the Manliest town in America. I plan on hitting Bardstown road which is a Vintagey cool kids home owned type area if you catch my drift.
