Braving the Cool SoCal Weather In Style

Every time a person from southern California pays a visit to an East Coast state or even our chilly neighbor to the north, San Francisco; I often hear the same comment, Guys just dress better over there or something to that extent.  It’s because these areas actually have snow.  To these “better” dressed men, donning on a simple pea coat is just second nature.  We as residents of SoCal think it novel and admire the GQ look.  However, when I see a SoCal resident attempting to emulate the look of a Princeton undergrad during winter finals they just look out of place to me.  It’s like that lyric Miley Cyrus sings in Party in the USA, “…Cause all I see are stilettos, I guess I didn’t get the memo…”  Has someone told this fool that it doesn’t snow here?  Guys, I get it.  You want to have that baldwin look, but unless you’re planning on snowboarding today, I really don’t think you need to be wearing a parka at the mall.  You just look ridiculous. It’s only roughly about 60 degrees.  A simple wool coat/sweater with an umbrella will work fine to brave the SoCal rain.  I’ve picked out some suitable looks that aren’t too ostentatious for my fellow sunny residents.
