    Towni all the way, and bonus points for channelling Michael Douglas in ‘Romancing the Stone’.

      Haha spot on!

  • Jeremy Hundreds

    John always dresses fratty.

  • Jordan

    Dan is just making other style bloggers look stupid. Whole team fresh. Dan wanted to Tell you that you really made me look at clothes in a diff way. Thanks bro

    John gets my vote today, very casual and comfortable but still looks dressy. Although those espadrilles Towni and Dan are wearing are just sooo sick.

  • Misha G.

    Almost voted for John but the “Almost Duckface” (or is it me?) got me voting for Wes.

    • John Crossley

      Haha that’s called blue steel. Not on purpose I think I was saying something I walked off set and Alex got this shot.

  • Jon

    John and Wes are very similar this time, but I voted for John because he’s rockin’ those green Boat shoes!

  • Harvey

    All look great but voted for Wes. Only because I got the EXACT same polo from the MB X Uniqlo collection. Good taste brotha!

  • http://www.thingsaboutkyle.wordpress.com Kyle Leon Norville

    Voted for Alex with no hesitation.

  • Joe

    @ Alex – Which gas station? I think I’m shopping at the wrong gas stations – I never find anything so nice.

  • Ian K

    Had to go for Towni. Can never have to much linen!

  • MS

    Wes just cooling. I see you, baby!

  • Kiel

    Yeah definitely John. I love Alex’s gas station shirt though.

    What kind of polo is that John?

    • John Crossley

      Thanks man!
      The polo is from Uniqlo. I stocked up them in every color.

      • Kiel

        Thanks for the tip. You like a pretty tall guy, do you find they’re long enough? It looks like it.

  • TO

    John. He hit that simple outfit sweet spot spot on today!

  • Luke

    Went with Wes today, but hats off to John as well (especially for those shoes, nice touch).

  • Vaz

    John smokes all of the other gents today IMHO because we essentially wore the same things today only in different colors. LOL. That green boat shoes sealed it.

  • John B

    I’m going with Wes.

    Dan, isn’t that shirt a bit long?

  • cam

    im usually not a fan of laceups with shorts but wes pulled that ish off today

    • Ali

      I was about to leave the same comment!
      The only reason I voted for John instead of Wes is because I don’t like the look of lace-ups with shorts.

      Then again, I don’t like green shoes with blue clothes…

    Putting my first vote for John in today! Solid summer outfit, can’t go wrong with blues, and those killer green boat shoes give the perfect pop of color. Good look.

    Please tell me about that belt.


  • Bob

    John, superb fit. Where’s the shirt from? Is that pique cotton?

    Nice shoes, Wes.

    • John Crossley

      The polo is from Uniqlo. It’s their Dry Fit 50/50 blend. Great fit and super affordable. They sell out quick though.
