I have a settled into a style. Black dress shirt (or tshirt) and jeans.

It’s simple, it looks put together, and it takes the confusion out of getting dressed each morning (I’m a morning radio host and when that alarm goes off at 4:05am, I can’t futz in the closet to pick out an outfit).

So each day it’s pretty much the same thing: a Denver Hayes Never Iron Classic Fit shirt from Mark’s (usually black, sometimes grey) and Levi’s 504 or 541 from Mark’s.

I wear that to work. I wear that on weekends (sometimes mixing in a tee instead of a dress shirt).  And, when pressed to emcee a fancy event, I’ll throw on a nice suit jacket, swap the black shirt for a white one (keep the jeans) and I’m good to go.

While the outfit is the same upstairs, I change my look regularly downstairs. While my fashion style is simple and easy to put together, my shoes change up regularly to bring my look up – or down.

Headed to work early in the morning?

But despite all the effort to maintain a wardrobe routine that is simple, I still keep my Dad style close at heart. Every now and again I might, just might, toss on socks and sandals – because it’s comfortable.
