St. Patrick’s Day is no excuse to get sloppy — in fact, the best green gear to wear for St. Patrick’s Day ought to keep you looking sharp as you knock a few back brews (or more than a few … or maybe none at all?) later this week. At any rate, the argument can be made for classic, slightly more subtle green St. Patrick’s Day menswear this season — from classic Oxfords to watches, we’ve got the best green gear for St. Patrick’s Day.
For every day of the year besides St. Patrick’s Day, Taylor Stitch shirting options also work handsomely. Why’s that? Well, the brand makes them with high-quality fabric and a tailored fit, and this classic green Oxford is no exception. Wear it tucked or untucked, team it with light grey chinos and a cream cable-knit sweater, or pair it with a waxed trucker jacket for durable style.
It’s all too easy to go overboard with green — see bright shirts, obnoxious logo T-shirts and the like. But a piece like a classic Oxford never fails, especially when it’s done in a more toned-down shade of Olive, then garment-dyed for easy wearability and vintage-inspired style. Certainly, it’s more than worthy of the top spot on our list of the best green gear to wear for St. Patrick’s Day. Make this your go-to spring bar crawl shirt, even outside of St. Paddy’s Day.
A classic tee for $50? When it’s as well-made and high-quality as the gear made by the inimitable Todd Snyder, it’s worth buying. It’s yet another subtle way to go green on St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s the type of tee you could easily slide under a rugged denim jacket alongside slim chinos for easygoing post-work style.
If you want to go with an even more subtle touch of green for the holiday, then green socks are your best friend. Particularly from an excellent, American-made brand like American Trench (as the name would imply), these socks should stylishly complement dark denim and a navy blazer, or other office-friendly styles. And that slight hint of green is just enough to stand out as you step out after work, too.
The key when picking out the best green gear to wear for St. Patrick’s Day involves using small, refined and subtle touches — those actually help you stand out more stylishly than gaudy colors or logos. So, the Timex + Todd Snyder Military Watch gets a lot of things right, including the versatile, casual olive drab strap and the handsome military-inspired dial. Wear this with your favorite pocket tee and dark denim to the bar.
