3 Artisanal Outfits and How to Wear Them

Functionality is the basis of many of menswear’s greatest pieces. Khakis, of course, began as lightweight military uniforms, offering a crispness and durability that civilians found irresistible. Similarly, the workwear worn by artisans and artists has crossed over, with denim dungarees, crewneck sweatshirts, and even studio-ready canvas kicks inspiring fashion fans worldwide. Here, for fall, we pay tribute to artisan style with three unique outfits inspired by different kinds of creators.

Street Art 

With hints of skater flare, this outfit’s ready to hit the city streets, either to throw up some wheatpaste postesr or simply to hit up a bar. Here, our rugged Cropped Flex Pant anchor the outfit, providing the perfect base for our soft Village Crew, AdrianDenim Shirt, and Reversible Coach Jacket.

Abstract Expressionist

Chinos, denim, and crewnecks were long the working uniform Abstract Expressionist artists like Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly. And, perhaps because artists like that also happened to go out for a drink more often than not, those Beatnik-esque ensembles work well outside of the studio too, combining collegiate details with paint-splattered elan. Recreate the look, pairing our Rider Chino with our denim Tripp Trucker Jacket and adding our French Terry Malcolm crewneck to form an ensemble that’s ready to go pretty much anywhere.

Gentleman Cowboy 

Out West, Cowboy artists roam the plains, painting portraits and landscapes and casting bronze statues that speak to that region’s history and culture. Of course, as cowboys, they’re outside working too, and their gear reflects that. Capture a hint of that look, rocking our Denim Rivingtons with our Luke Jacket, Quilted Vest, and flannel Fulton Shirt, for an outfit that looks at home on the range or in the city.
