In fashion, “growth and maturity” can be reflected in formal attire, casual clothing, and even street wear.  Designers and consumers (such as myself) have outgrown the uber-trendy attire in search of something more classic and subdued.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s always fun to get playful with clothing by throwing on some loud kicks, a fitted, and an “exclusive t-shirt”.  But at the end of it all, I fall back to what I like to call the “urban preppie”.  Did you notice how you can throw on an old button down, cashmere sweater, fitted jeans, and tailored jacket and still look “in-style” with the current trends?  The difference nowadays are the tailored fits and updated designs/colorways used in these lines.  My personal favorite is Ralph Laurens, Purple Label line.  They have great tailored clothing, fits and fabrics that will last a lifetime.  Other notable designers have created their own looks such as, HomeRoom.  Below are a few of my favorite styles but be sure to check out their website for more clothing.

Homeroom Clothing Holiday 2009 Collection | American Rejects
Showcasing a period of growth and maturity, HomeRoom Clothing presents their Holiday 2009 Collection, entitled ‘American Rejects’. “Taking inspiration from hard working American men of the 1930s through the 1950s. This line reflects the values and the blue collar work-ethic of those times. It’s the telling of man who starts his day at the break of dawn, labors until dusk, and comes home to his family, only to repeat another arduous routine the very next day. This collection is the archetype of these traditional facets of life, which are mirrored within Americana and the ideology to achieve status-quo. American Rejects embodies the overturn of classics with the intention of manifesting progressive change in style.” From technically designed jackets and premium cashmere sweaters, to well-tailored oxfords and jeans, the collection exemplifies simple, nostalgic Americana.
