Not afraid of making the old new again, Preston rocks a Grandpa cardigan handed down from a friend of his Dad’s. Completing the old school look is this Film major’s gold framed glasses and newsboy cap, a refreshing change from your everyday baseball hat. Taking what started as a simple black t-shirt and red pants and pairing them with some unique nostalgia inspired pieces, our first male Dress Code-r embraces an effortlessly cool look.
No vintage fan in Long Beach has gone without the occasional quest to Buffalo Exchange, which poor Preston got a major rejection from when he tried selling a trash bag full of his old clothes. Take it from us though - it was definitely Buffalo’s loss.

Reppin’ Altamont brand clothing from where he currently works, Jeff looks styled in a cool jacket, a crisp pair of khakis and a baseball cap. The jacket is a fun combination of textures, mixing a cotton denim and sweatshirt material. A favorite part of Jeff’s outfit would have to be his shoes. Cream in color and corduroy material, Jeff’s loafers are the finishing touch to look classic, charismatic, and comfortable.

Spotted outside the library spending some quality time with girlfriend Nicole (roulettedare.tumblr.com), this featured fashionisto had us doing double takes with his confident, dapper look. While most guys on campus take the easy way out throwing on whatever stale sweatshirt and basketball shorts are in nearest reach, Amber and I were instantly impressed by Zameer’s updated take on the classic men’s jacket and tie style.
As an avid shopper of 4th Street, Zameer owes his navy pinstripe blazer to a thrifting adventure. By then layering the blazer with a grey American Apparel cardigan, he keeps warm and incorporates the old with the new. Zameer’s skinny gold tie shines as brightly as his winning smile, and adds a bright pop of color. And lastly we can’t forget the accessories. This cool cat’s perfectly worn leather brogues look right out of his style icon The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ closet. Zameer also takes a plain canvas messenger bag and makes it his own with a plethora of colorful pins and buttons.
Let this week’s fashionisto be a lesson to all you male readers out there: ditch the baggy sweatshirt and you’re sure to turn heads in admiration… maybe even that cute girl in your math class.
