Menswear Fix: The October List

If your guy’s wardrobe could use an update, you’re going to love the new monthly feature at GYPO.  A while back, I came to the realization that many of you are helping the guys in your lives with their style decisions.  A common theme was that you were struggling to find resources and wanted something similar to the GYPO Style Challenge, but a capsule wardrobe for men.

Earlier this fall, I created a 14 day capsule wardrobe for men, the Fall 2016 Menswear Bootcamp.  It went over so well that I’ve decided to start offering you with a monthly resource, similar to the Pretty Fix but for the guys.  Since Pretty Fix doesn’t quite work in this case, let’s just simply call it the Menswear Fix.  🙂

Here are the five pieces I recommend for your guy to stay on trend this month.

    Thank you so much for doing this. It is such a help for those of us who do our husband’s clothing shopping. I would love to see a series on choosing denim for men, particularly for men who have “older” bodies and who, while they enjoy looking good, put comfort first and foremost! :O

  • Great post! I stumbled upon this randomly browsing but you’ve got a real good eye for men’s style! Fantastic!!


  • I wish my hubby would let me buy clothes for him! It’s not that he’s a bad dresser, I just love shopping so much I would like to do it for him, too! I think a lot of guys would like this simple look. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
