Never prone to bold statement with their style choices, Simon & Garfunkel outfit themselves with clean-cut, classic looks. So follow their lead by heading over to your father or grandfather's closet to pick out your new favorites: windbreaker, black turtleneck, wool trousers, short chinos, and worn-in boots.

If Paul Simon (right) is more your style, you can find a wool topcoat like his at Jos. A. Bank.


J.Crew makes a perfectly tailored, lightweight cotton pant, or for a little texture, try them in corduroy.


Top off the outfit with a pair of vintage-inspired, lace-up boots like these from Urban Outfitters.
