By Fashion Girlfriend | Previous Updated: Apr 14 2022

Have you at any time visited a cafe, or go through an article, and later achieved the owner of mentioned-restaurant, or the writer of stated-posting and believed to you, Indeed, okay, it all can make feeling.

That’s how I felt meeting Alan Stuart, the innovative brains driving Pair of Robbers, one of Design and style Girlfriend’s go-to brand names for enjoyment (but not, like, Enjoyable!) men’s socks and fashionable however reliably strong underwear.

Stuart’s unique aesthetic will come via in the site’s off-defeat visuals and at any time-so-marginally quirky clothing patterns.

So obviously, I requested the Portland, Oregon-based inventive director to doc a week in his wardrobe.

Each outfit is chock full of relaxed men’s PNW style, great for WFH inspo.

Check out out his laid-back appears and accompanying colour commentary under.


pants: Carhartt | sneakers: Nike | coat: Schott (equivalent)

Am I the only one that feels undesirable for dresses that haven’t been worn in a extensive time? I have not arrived at for this sweater in years because it hardly ever appears to be wonderful on my shelf, but then I constantly like it on.

The trousers are a classic pair of Carhartts that I just received for $30. I’m on a kick these days to try out and acquire less new things. The sneakers get the job done with nearly everything, whilst sporting them with shorts is a really superior go that I’m not positive I can pull off (unless of course I’m in NYC probably?).

Magically, these Pair of Intruders boot socks and the sweater vibe jointly, and that will make me happier than it probably must (on the inside of, modeling is really serious). 

It is a colder day here in Portland, so I wore this peacoat that I received at Topshop in London lots of years in the past, right before it came to the U.S., so it even now feels like a exceptional discover to me.

It’s survived a lot of closet purges and will endure many more. 


shorts and shirt: Ten Thousand | base layer: Pair of Thieves

I’m not an “athleisure” person and under no circumstances will be, so I haven’t place much considered into my work out equipment in excess of the a long time, but that also resulted in me putting on a bunch of mismatched colors, brands, and stuff obtained for absolutely free following races.

This then led me to my only genuine exercise session wardrobe tenet: just acquire black things.

I do not like a ton of branding and for that explanation have liked things from Ten Thousand, which is the shorts and shirt listed here. 

The base layer bottoms are our quite possess Pair of Intruders SuperFit, which I begged our head of merchandising to make for decades. They get the job done for all the issues: skiing, path-functioning, cycling, SUPing, yoga, excessive pogo-sticking and I really like them (thank you, Mona). 

For socks, I’m generally put on-tests a new products of ours, and these are some magic formula ankle socks coming out in the slide. They are incredible, but that is all I’m authorized to say. 


trousers: Acne | sweater: Mollusk | sneakers: Straye

These Acne breakouts trousers are most likely the most high-priced I possess, but just about every time I don them it divides the cost by the amount of wears. And which is how math allows us as grownups. 

I also like this sweater simply because it can be dressed up or down.

Since these two points together get me a bit far too shut to a country club glance than I’m relaxed with, though, I toss on a hat (I was also functioning late and my hair was fluffy), and some filthy sneakers. These kinds are by Straye, and I dig them since the founder is a mate and they are also not Converse or Vans. 

Izzy can be seen in this article, and usually, carrying a great tri-shade merle fur coat. 


denims: Levi’s | shacket: Madewell (identical) | sneakers: Vans

Alright, perfect spring working day right now, so the white tee is in total impact. There’s a 65% likelihood I spill ramen on it later on, but thankfully we make them and I preserve backups at do the job. 

I just bought these jeans from Levi’s Secondhand program, which I think is a super great way to boost round fashion… very sure these were my denims in the 90s and I just bought them again. 

The shacket (is that really what it is referred to as?) issue is a excellent pounds for the time. 

I was getting difficulty choosing on the shoes, but my friend claims usually go with the extra exciting solution, and she has a good deal of enjoyment, so I went with the pink leather Vans. 

Socks are PoT, of course.

men's onesie

onesie: Amazon | gloves: Hestra

For me, the arrival of spring is charming for a lot of reasons, but just one of those people is definitely hitting the mountain in a onesie.

Do I own all characters of Winnie the Pooh? Yes. Does it embarrass my kids? Sure. Would we all be sad if I skipped a year? Also of course. 

Gloves by Hestra since they are the greatest and a fanny pack simply because fashun. If you are not possessing enjoyment, you’re accomplishing it erroneous.
