Wrapping up our week with Dan Trepanier of The Style Blogger is a more casual look. Though khakis are standard issue prep fare, everyone from Brooks Brothers to J.Crew are partnering up with Levi’s lately—and for good reason. Jeans are a time-tested way to introduce casual versatility into your wardrobe, especially on weekends. Just remember to keep your legs straight and your break short. What you do with the rest of your weekend is your business.
“Dan’s style is instantly recognizable as American while avoiding the more predictable preppy combinations.” —Nick Sullivan, Esquire fashion director

Noteworthy (Trepanier): This vintage leather piece is inspired by a traditional trench coat, a prep staple, which works great with a plaid shirt, wool tie, and collar pin.
Noteworthy (Castleberry): A shorter trench coat rendered in leather in lieu of traditional wool gabardine or cotton (a cue from Jackie O.), navy suede desert boot.
