It was a Haircut Day for Rob

Men's Fashion,

A Man’s Perspective on Styling

Quote of the Day: “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” Anonymous

Here’s another segment in our men’s fashion posts!! The first one that I twisted Rob’s arm to pose for was concentrating on his shoes, here. Today, we just concentrate on his great haircut that was done right before the photos–ha ha!! No but, this is a normal outfit that Rob would put together when we are out and about.

Rob’s Outfit: Let me start by talking about the coat. It came about due to the fact that Rob is always lamenting about how many cool coats I have, and there really aren’t many great selections for the guys! And by cool, Rob means not black & boring! Granted, he does have quite a few jackets & coats, they just are all solid colored. So when we happened to see this one online from BooHoo for only $35, we grabbed it up!

I did end up ordering a new zipper for the coat. The one that came with it only zipped up one way, whereas this one is a separating zipper that works from both the top & bottom. It does make it so much easier for sitting and moving around!

Men's Fashion,

Rob usually wears a colored t-shirt under his shirts. When we were first together, he always wore the white undershirts. But I thought that the white ones really made him look old manish. So we’ve been accumulating colored tees ever sine. Sometimes he matches the t-shirt to the outer shirt, but many times he goes for a contrasting color! You can see, how he went with a green colored one under his denim shirt this day!

Men's Fashion,

The jeans are a light blue pair that we picked up the first time we visited Seattle. He loves them as much as I do!! One reason is because they have spandex in them, and thus are super comfortable. But secondly, they add a little flair to his look! They aren’t just a normal blue denim, but more of a sky blue color!!

Men's Fashion,

And, of course, the shoes! We just picked these up right before Christmas at DSW. They are basically the same pair that Nancy has (and wore, here). Nancy is always saying how comfortable they are, so I figured these would be fabulous for Rob too! I love how they look like an oxford, but the bottom portion is more like a sneaker!

Jeans: Andrew Morato (similar here or here)~~Shirt: Gap (similar here)~~Coat: BooHoo (similar here in a bigger plaid, or here in a smaller print–both limited sizes or here where it’s more subtle )~~Shoes: Cole Haan (similar here as a sneaker or here as the Zerogrand but a different version)~~Belt: (similar here)

What do you all think? Is this something your men would wear or not?

Here’s some other colors for jeans for the men!! Any takers?

  • What a great idea to wear coloured shirts underneath. I have to find the right moment to suggest this to Ron. It makes an outfit so much more interesting.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We came up with idea because he was wearing the white tees under his shirt and it just looked so old mannish.
      And sometimes I have to laugh at his color combinations—but hey–it’s better than the white ones!!

      • I submitted the idea to Ron this afternoon. At first he was interested. Then I made the mistake of saying you thought white T shirts look old mannish… Mistake, mistake. He was offended and didn’t want to have anything to do with coloured shirts anymore. I can be so stupid at times.

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Yes, but maybe he’ll sleep on it and rethink it later??
          It’s funny how one word can make someone defensive, eh?

  • Amber Temerity

    Oooh I love those light blue jeans!! Great style here 😀

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Amber!! They are one of Rob’s favorite pairs–I think because they aren’t too bright, yet they aren’t the normal “denim”!!

  • Austin Hodgens

    I like Rob’s sense of style. As a Modern Philosopher, I only wear togas, but after reading this post, I realize I can bring a little pop to my wardrobe by adding color to my togas. Who says they have to only be white? Thank you for opening my eyes to this! 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I didn’t realize that togas were the fashion choice for the modern philosophers, Austin! I thought I always saw these individuals in khakis and t-shirts? 🙂
      But I bet we could dye your toga ( I did a post about it here: That would make a statement, right?

  • I really like the coat – it’s a little bit different!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks—Rob loves it, although it’s not super warm. But it’ll be great for those transition months!!

  • Anthony Lozzi

    I LOVE that coat. I like dusters – maybe I watched too many western’s with my grandpa – but coats like this really make me think like that.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We looked long and hard for a fun coat for Rob. So he’ll be happy to hear that another guy appreciates it!!
      Happy Friday, Anthony!

  • Gary Mathews

    Hmm this reminds me I need to go get some new jeans! Did I win the yet unannounced Touch of Style Nordstrom gift card for being the lucky blog commenter? I did? Awesome. I’ll send you my contact information pronto!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Bummer, Gary!! You didn’t win this time (Amy was the happy recipient)!! But stay tuned because I plan to do it again!!
      You really have such a great sense of humor—thanks for giving me reason to smile this morning!!
      And I can help you shop online for those jeans if you want? I’ve emailed links to people before giving them tons of options—it’s totally fun for me! So if you’re really serious—just email me with your size, budget, what you like, and I’m all over it!!

  • Mimi

    Seriously smart and looks comfortable too! My chap wears this sort of stuff too. The shoes really make the outfit.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s so nice to hear Mimi! I love it when the men look as stylish as the women!!

  • So cute that you did a hubby post! Love it. I like too the idea of a colored tee to brighten things up under a sweater and those are some cool shoes! My hubby wears jeans 99.9 % of the time, so the lighter color is perfect for the upcoming season.
    Jess xx

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Jess!!
      He has decided he loves these shoes. He’s a funny guy, because so many of the ones I pick out for him, he’s hesitant at first. And then a couple months later, he’ll decide he loves them!!

  • I kind of love the bright colored undershirt! Almost like the equivalent of a casual pocket square, just a little pop of color and flare.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s a great analogy, Lydia! I like that!!

  • It’s perfect for him! Good job!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Zunera!!

  • I love Rob’s outfit! My hubby is rarely out of jeans and a tshirt, but I’m always trying!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lana!! I am lucky that Rob doesn’t mind putting on different clothing instead of jeans, but it didn’t happen overnight, ha ha!

  • This isn’t about the outfit. This is about my admiration for you Jodie that you got your man involved in the fashion blogging full stop! I have enough of a job coaxing my OH to help with my photos,let alone get involved in a fashion shoot. Tellhim from me well done. And he should have his own blog x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I have to admit that Rob is definitely a good sport about anything I twist his arm about!!
      He may start his own blog at some time, but he’d really like to concentrate on food & wine & restaurants—that’s really a love of his!!
      I’ll tell him, Laurie—thanks!!

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    Your hubby looks great, Jodie! My hubby is long-waisted and short-legged, muscular, stocky legs. Although he wears 32-33 waist (I know!), his pants are ALWAYS too long and bunch at the bottom. We may have to cuff those babies! Love the coat!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I usually have to shorten Rob’s pants too. There are a couple pairs of jeans that he’d rather cuff instead (like these) although I’m not sure how long I’ll put up with that, ha ha!!
      Thanks for the kind words, Terri!

  • Jacqueline Rendine

    Such a great outfit! A very pulled together look!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Jacqueline!!

  • How fantastic I think it is that Rob participates in your blog this way! Often our partners are the people ,,behind the camera,,😂😂 And how good Rob looks! Well done Rob!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much for the positive comment Nancy! I figured we all have to get dressed every day (men included) so why not show them off too!!

  • I’m just wondering what this post has to do with the WeekendCoffeeShare?

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Wow, Dale. I need to say how sorry I am. I’m relatively new to the party, and I’d read a post in front of mine, but never put 2 and 2 together that the entire post was supposed to be about weekend coffee share. I just thought we were sharing our weekend posts. That’ll teach me to read in more detail after I click on the frog button! So I deleted my post from the party. Again, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to crash the party. Thanks so much for letting me know—I feel so stupid.

      • Oh don’t feel stupid! I just wanted to let you know! It was an enjoyable read, though!!

  • Charlotte Miller

    Rob–you make a great model!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t he wonderful? 🙂

  • He looks adorable.
    I love the jeans/ Fits perfectly.

      Thanks Zarrah!!

  • Vettae-Fee Kling

    Looking nice ;-). I adore the light blue Jean. My man has a similar one but I’m thinking of a bright red top and those Timberland shoes. Your post inspired me 😉
    have a nice WE.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That would look fabulous!!
      Thanks so much for the thought and giving your voice!!

  • Amy D. Christensen

    Better watch out, Jodie. Rob is going to be having the women swooning after him! He looks great and your photos are super. Cool post. Way to mix it up. – Amy

    • Jodie Filogomo

      We always laugh that I’m going to have to beat the girls off with a bat, now that he dresses so nicely!! Ha ha!!
      Thanks for giving him such a boost!!

  • Judy Gramith

    Very handsome and casual.
    Spandex in our jeans is one of my favorite advancemen’s in clothing fiber technology.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Spandex in all of our clothing is the best thing ever, I think, Jude!!
      You’re going to have so much fun this weekend—I can’t wait to hear all about it!!

  • Sucha great coat! Love the colors in his outfit!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Stephanie—it’s turned out to be a great buy!!

  • Queen of Rods

    Rob looks very comfortable being featured on the blog 🙂 What a fun coat…looks great on him. My mate lived in CO for many years and also does the t-shirt thing…which doesn’t really fly in CA. I’m a fan of the colored tees when I can’t talk him out of wearing one…

    • Jodie Filogomo

      He really didn’t like the modeling at first…but just today when we took some photos, he was hamming it up!! Might as well have fun, I guess! 🙂
      I wonder why it’s so different in CA—do you think it’s more dressy, or just too warm or too old fashioned?

      • Queen of Rods

        Definitely too warm where we live…but also not good with the shirt styles that are popular here.

  • Janice Harper Jones

    I like the look on Rob. This looks like something my husband would wear.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s so fabulous to hear Janice!! Maybe your husband should be part of the blog too?? 🙂

  • La Veine

    Rob looks great! I love how colorful this outfit is 🙂


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Isn’t it nice to see something other than blah?? I rarely let him wear blah anymore!
