The definition of the Lumbersexual style brings with it a load of hipster irony, yet it remains a very practical clothing.
The Lumbersexual style is in fact based on some typical garments of casual clothing, such as flannel shirts or jeans. And the reason why everyone likes these clothes so much is their versatility: they can be worn together, but they also work well with the rest of the wardrobe. They are pieces that always keep coming back.
How to create a Lumbersexual style
The flannel shirt is, without a doubt, a hero not only for men’s clothing, but also for Lumbersexual style. The most classic definition of a winter shirt. It’s an incredibly soft garment and, because it traps the air, it is also very warm and resistant. Reason why lumberjacks and grunge groups are fans of it.
To combine the most famous model of a classic lumberjack shirt in a Lumbersexual style, the best choice is jeans and sneakers. Although the classicists will never approve the combination of jeans with a flannel shirt, it is a combination that works without special efforts.
Jeans and fedora: a great match
In fact, jeans not only offer a more natural silhouette, but are also much more comfortable. Which means that it gives a perfect balance between a feeling of relaxation and an orderly appearance.
At least, to complete a perfect Lumbersexual style, you need a hat. And the fedora, with its soft felt construction, flattened front, teardrop-shaped crown and a wide brim, immediately adds a Lumbersexual charm to a contemporary look.
This hat also works very well with jeans, but better to wear it tilted backwards with a slight angle, James Bay style, in order not to actually look like a cowboy.
