The look of a button-down shirt, jeans, and some cool shoes is a cool look for guys. I think every guy who wants a cool look should have a good long-sleeve button-down shirt, a good pair of jeans, and some cool shoes or sneakers to top it off. I'm mostly discuss women's fashion, but this is a men's fashion deal here.

The Oxford Shirt.
Here's an example of the kind of shirt I had in mind for this blog entry:
I have a bunch of button-down shirts, mostly short-sleeve. I only have one long-sleeve button-down shirt. You might have seen me wear it in some of my past videos. I have a white button-down long-sleeve shirt of my own. I used to have a white oxford shirt and a blue one. But, I now only have the white oxford. I would probably look for a classy, yet casual oxford shirt. This is all a casual look, but it's casual and classy. That's why I like this look.
Here are more oxford shirts you may be interested in. They include proper and casual button-downs:
^ Van Heusen's wrinkle-free poplin oxford shirt comes in ten different colors and a multitude of sizes. Sizes range from 15 to 18. There are MANY sizes available, so please click on the image above to see all available sizes and colors.

^ This is a long shirt made for clubbing, but may be tempted to try this shirt on for casual wear in addition to the club. This shirt only comes in blue with sizes for Medium and Large sizes.

Now on to the second element of the look- jeans. A good-fitting pair of jeans will add a little more flavor to this look. I'm thinking more along the lines of a pair of loose-fitting or vintage jeans. Maybe find a good pair of bootcut jeans. I would probably go with a pair of medium wash or dark blue jeans. If you can't sport a good pair of loose jeans, then go with a style you're best comfortable with. It all depends on what you're going after.
The right pair of jeans will give your legs a good look to compliment your shoes. Speaking of which...
Depending on your preference, the look is finished off with a sleek pair of sneakers or slip-ons. Here are some examples:
^ I primarily had a good pair of oxford sneakers in mind, and these are about the best possible shoes to come to mind. These Skechers sneakers are a by-the-book definition of sleek and sporty. But what if you want something a little dressy, while not too dressy? Check these out:
^ These shoes are casual in nature and completes this look with a bit more classy edge. This is a good pair of shoes to wear to straddle the line between casual and classy. What if you prefer some slip-on casual shoes? Try these:
^ Another pair of Skechers that's a slip-on casual. Think of these as the lace-less alternative to the previous Skechers sneakers I mentioned.
I think the look of an oxford shirt, a good pair of jeans, and a sleek pair of sneakers or shoes makes for a handsome look for guys. It's both casual and classy. Do you guys have a look like this? You at least now have some inspiration from me.
