Outfitted & Equipped: Fall Cider & Donut Picnic Date

This post is brought to you by Levi’s® [1]. Explore the collection at Levi.com [2] What’s this? [3]

A few of my favorite men’s lifestyle blogs have been doing a fun series where they offer a suggested get-up [4] or outfit [5] based on a theme. I really enjoy them and have been wanting to do something similar —  I’m calling ours “Outfitted and Equipped.”

We’ve done a few illustrated guides on what to wear to certain events, which are handy for providing some general guidelines, but I think it’s nice to see concrete examples of outfits, along with what to bring to the shindig as well. Outfitted and Equipped also gives me a chance to show the kind of things I personally wear and enjoy.

But to be clear here — I’m not saying you have to buy these exact things! It’s just a gallery of inspiration for what to get together for different outings. Don’t read too much into it  — it’s just for fun! (Sad I have to make such a caveat, but people always do!)
