The Natty Nittany: John, Hetzel St.

Saturday was, of course, State Patty’s Day. I didn’t expect to see someone worthy of Natty Nittany status, but then I ran into John outside of Sharkies Bar and Thrifty Bottle Shop on Hetzel Street. The fashion photography gods had given me a State Patty’s Day blessing.

Though I did not have my good camera with me, you shouldn’t need too sharp of an image to see why I had to snap Jon’s picture. John did State Patty’s in a big way and I respect him for that.

It’s not only that he’s got the green going on, and that he did it in a way much more fashionable than the typical t-shirt, but that his jacket was actually a decent fit! Too often I see people with blazers two sizes too big for them and poorly tailored suit jackets (or worse– not tailored at all!).

Oh, and a little side note courtesy of John’s female accompaniment. When I told them who I was and asked to take John’s picture, the girl enthusiastically informed that John’s clothes were indeed, “all high end stuff!”

The STATEtorialist:Things I’ve Seen Enough Of

In every post I have ever made, I have made suggestions on what to wear, but not once have I ever suggested what not to wear. I’m a firm believer in the thought that if you’re told (or suggested) what not to do, you’re more likely to stray away from doing it. Hey, you have to fail before you learn to succeed, and I’ve made one or two of these mistakes on what I like to think of as the rough road I’ve taken to finally know what I’m talking about (ha ha). So read up and soak it in, because a lot of these faux pas that I notice all too often usually end up in a disappointing head shake from me, but not a solution to the problem.


These problems, which can be found after the jump, are in no specific order, but you should not do any of them…please.
