Layering it up
Here’s Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz, who is layering it up with a basic white tee inside a melange Henley. Looks interesting how he’s using this piece to show off his muscle power. Also he’s styled it up with a pair of formal trousers with that statement high investment belt. For all those men who want to show brawn with brain, go for this style statement.
Think of an everyday activity, hopefully a fun one. Gaming. A bunch of guys sipping some ale, munching on crisps, you know the usual. Now if Nathan Drake who is a treasure hunter, fortune seeker, deep-sea salvage expert, action-pro, and a professional thief, the protagonist from the Unchartered video game series wears it, what stops you?
