Steal This Look: Fort Collins

STL Fort Collins

Fort Collins, Colorado, is an hour car ride from Denver.

Nicknamed FoCo, the city has a burgeoning art scene and streets that look like movie lots.

Forbes named it one of the 14 best places to visit in 2019.

If you’re planning a trip to Colorado, make a stop in FoCo. I’ll be right behind you.

Overshirt from Flint and Tinder

[1] Overshirt from Flint & Tinder

WHY I LIKE THIS SHIRT: This shirt is warm enough for cool summer nights but light enough to wear unbuttoned over a tee during the day. It’s versatile, which is good because I’m awful at dressing for the weather. I’m the guy with shorts on in 40 degrees and a sweater on an 80-degree afternoon.

WHY I LIKE THESE SHORTS: It might sound old man-like, but I’m becoming a sucker for elastic waistbands, mostly because I’m not exactly a 31 waist but also not a 32. I’m sometimes one or the other. The waistband changes with my eating and exercise habits.

Olukai shoes Nohea Moku

WHY I LIKE THESE SNEAKERS: They’re fun to pronounce. Nokea moku! Just be careful yelling it out. It means handsome. You don’t want to give people the wrong idea. Or maybe you do.

WHY I LIKE THIS BACKPACK: This backpack from Herschel Thompson has a ton of hidden pockets, enough room for all my books, all my pocket notebooks, pens, and laptop and has dual water bottle slots. I’m a thirsty fella.

WHY I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK: It’s smart to learn about a place before you show up. You’ll feel less touristy, even though you’ll look the part.
