Impatiently Waiting with The Idle Man

The Idle Man 3

If there’s one thing that I know about myself it’s that I am incredibly impatient. I struggle on the daily with a commute that’s 10 minutes longer than I can handle. Any line at Starbucks more than 2 people deep is just not worth it. And even Amazon Prime two-day shipping is sometimes worthy of an eye roll.

I know, I know. Could I be any more first world privileged? But I’m the product of my instant gratification millennial environment! I fully recognize all of this.

If you’re an LA local I know that you will DEFINITELY relate to a burning impatience for fall weather. Forget the pumpkin spiced everything. I just want to, like, not sweat while I’m getting dressed in the morning. This week has been insufferably hot (we’re talking into the 100s in late October) so I had to escape to the mountains recently just to catch some cooler mornings/evenings.

Call me impatient, but I am DYING to bust out those sweaters and coats that have been sitting idly by – including these new threads from The Idle Man.

This retailer was new to me but I’m so glad I found them. A menswear shop and in-house label catering to the style conscious man, they host brands such as Levi’s, Larsson and Jennings, and Nudie Jeans Co. Alongside the online shop, The Idle Man Manual is a blog dedicated to offering style advice as well as stories and guides about music, grooming and lifestyle.

Check β€˜em out! I love this check wool overcoat in grey and the texture on these ribbed ottoman joggers in navy is fab. All this and more is from their Fall’17 Lookbook.

Hears hoping that I’ll actually have a chance to wear these soooooooon.
