Now that we’ve gotten rid of ‘Mom Jeans’ for good, it’s time to focus on the Breezy Papas. To get tips on what’s in for men’s fashion this fall, Breezy Mama turned to Gio and Reginald of Fred Segal on Melrose in Los Angeles. Listen, I’d rather feed my family for a year than get THAT credit card bill, so of course I took their picks and found you the lower cost alternative. So check out the choices and surprise your hubby with the updated looks or pass the link along (pssst… we’ve been told about several Papas seen checking out Breezy Mama). Just don’t let him be caught on date night in ‘Dad Denim.’ This season, Gio shared that for shirts it’s all about plaids, knits, henleys and cashmere. Check out one look incorporating the plaid and knit from H&M in the photo to the left. The shirt is $24.95, sweater is $29.95 and the jeans are $39.95. To find an H&M near you, click here. Speaking of jeans, Gio says the style to purchase depends on your hubby’s body type. “When you find something that fits well, then get them,” he said. “Don’t be afraid to take things to get altered.” Jeans are always the one area that are sometimes worth the splurge. Gio’s hot brands of the season are J. Brand and Jean Shop. What both brands — each over $200 — have in common is the big pockets in the back. Check out the comparable versions from Hurley available from Swell for $45 (click here) or Levi’s from Urban Outfitters for $54 (click here).
