There has been this phenomenon recently of impressively dressed boys on the UGA campus. Perhaps some of them are getting inspiration on Pinterest or they are starting to pick up on the fact that girls love well kept boys. Either way, they have really been stepping it up! Rather than looking too intentionally put together, these boys sport clothing that makes them look like refined grungy gents. That rugged man element is there, but at the same time everything fits well, all colors coordinate, and their large beards are trimmed regularly. It seems that they are reconstructing the look of the hackneyed hipster by combining the cardigans they’ve had since high school with their military inspired jackets from last year while they polish off the look with a brand new pair of MacAlister boots. For the first time in a while it seems that the girls are following after the boys' style by stomping into class with Doc Martens and oversized menswear from Surplus stores. So with this said, I've gotta say, gee, I wish I was back in the army!
