How to Dress Like Jake Ryan From Sixteen Candles

For scores of eighties schoolgirls, Sixteen Candles dreamboat Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) was the gold standard—a jock with a sensitive side. This ideal mixture of masculinity and endearment is also seen in his wardrobe. In perhaps his most memorable look, Jake rocks a Fair Isle knit vest with jeans and distressed work boots. The look is collegiate but not stuffy. The fit is relaxed but not sloppy. No wonder Jake Ryan is now a term used to describe the perfect boyfriend. Check out NEastStyle for more Jake Ryan looks.
