What is “East Campus” you might ask, dear reader?
East Campus is a tragically beautiful (yet awesome)
slum place to live during your undergraduate years at Mizzou. It’s a big, magical, non-stop party with all your friends. Imagine a place where a thick layer of cigarette butts and shattered beer bottles litters the rundown lawns and crooked sidewalks. A place coated by a thin residue of shame that comes up easily when you scrape at it with a fingernail. A place where the brick-lain streets are bathed in streams of sorority girl tears flowing richly into the Natty Light-filled sewers. East Campus, a prime place for the housing of Who’s Who in Mizzou. We mean this when we say it: It’s the best place ever.
These are your options on East Campus, choose wisely.
Seth and I chose cheaply, as did Cam.
And here is your East Campus midweSTYLE in option, “Likely Unlivable Housing”:
WHY THIS LOOK WORKS: Nautical and military style? Sure. It’s called, the navy.
You can get these shoes at Famous Footwear. Is anyone listening? Famous Footwear, I say.

It’s still cold here in the Midwest, thus you still have some time to put more mileage of your Red Wings and break them in before they’re reluctantly thrown into their seasonal retirement.
Gentlemen, today we’re going to show how to look manly, outdoorsy, Midwestern or whatever you wanna call it and do it with some life.
Then, add a splash of color.
It never hurts, really.
Just not to your mixed drink or bank account balance.
It wouldn’t be a Midwestyle post without a crotch thrust or slight hip swing. We’re fresh out of college and miss the glory days of impromptu dance parties and the daily shenanigans of slumming around on East Campus. Please bear with us.
WHY THIS LOOK WORKS: This is an easy “Midwestern” look. You’ve got your khakis, your jacket and your boots. You’ve got everything to throw this look together. There isn’t really anything “special” about this look. Now, just add some color. We aren’t afraid of that, are we?
CHANGE IT UP: Add a button down with some color to show a little life in the home stretch of this winter season. Come on, you can do it.
thrifted J.CREW XS four-pocket jacket $6.99, J.CREW purple and green button down $12.99, rag & bone m2061555 for $40 in Chicago, Red Wing 8878 boot from Halls for $78, Fossil leather & canvas weekender from the good ol’ Lake of the Ozarks Outlet Mall $60, Timex Camper Watch $18 on amazon.
Overheard one bro at Nordstrom Rack in Chicago today:
“You gotta search through a lot of shit at this place. But every once in a while you can find a $100 Ed Hardy T-shirt for $50, and then you know you’ve got it.”
