Be Your Best Self

Urban Chic: Football Recruiting Trail

Urban Chic: Football Recruiting TrailWhen I designed this set, I had just seen a photo online of Urban Meyer and a colleague posing with a new recruit.  At first glance, I recall thinking how tired they both looked, which is understandable.  I once worked in recruiting in the legal field & certain times of the year, we existed on caffeine and quick bites to eat as we tracked down the best-of-the-best, for weeks at a time.

I’ve shared a fresh perspective on recruiting attire.  I understand that you don’t want to go in wearing a 3-piece suit so I toned it down and kept it business casual and included an optional blazer.  I paired flat-front slacks with several shirt options:  a basic crisp white button down, a white Polo and striped button down dress shirt.  All can be worn alone or with the included knit blazer.  I included a travel grooming set to revive a tired face, mouthwash for all those face-to-face meetings, Ohio State cuff links & pin and a snazzy Chelsea boot.  You’ve gotta admit Coach Meyer would look pretty sharp in this!

The “Urban Chic” inspo boards are are a series of Polyvore inspiration boards I created after seeing a photo of Urban Meyer online.  In the photo, he appeared to be at an event with a trio of  gents, all wearing suits.  Urban’s suit, while obviously a quality suit, made him look much older than his current 53 years.  I tapped my Polyvore app and created my vision of what he could wear in the future, that stayed true to his conservative style, while giving him a more polished look that didn’t age him.  I’ve had fun creating the Urban-inspired boards!  Coach Meyer has a bevy of people surrounding him that focus on the football-related aspect of his life.  I’m here, from afar, and should he ever see this, to add a spark of fashion inspiration across the web.  I don’t set out to create based on any particular theme and prefer to go with the flow as ideas pop into my mind.  It’s all in good fun.
