Hey, gidday mates! Happy New Year!!! Back to life, back to reality. Early January is always a weird time — everyone’s still in holiday mode but obsessively trying to cling on to their resolutions; after all, 17 days is all that’s required to create a habit (I have no science to back that up, FYI). I guess I’m no exception. I worked out at Equinox in Soho with Moti Ankari on Saturday and I even found myself promising to go at least five times per week in 2016. I rate the likelihood of success at around 33.7%.
In other news, Jenny and I are dressing more and more alike each and every day. It’s gotten to the stage where it’s extremely rare for her not to be stealing at least something of mine, whether that something is socks, a T-shirt, a sweater or a button-down; and her latest acquisition is this green Alex Mill shirt that I never really wore, but which matches perfectly with my favorite blue Alex Mill shirt.
When I was in LA I saw a ton of guys in this Californian/Saint Laurent/Hedi Slimane uniform of leather moto jacket, buffalo plaid shirt, white T-shirt, skinny black jeans, and suede Chelsea boots, and this is our take on it. It’s how we’ve both been dressing pretty often recently, and I like how the check shirt breaks up what would otherwise be simple black on black.
For the record, for anyone who’s ever stressed about pairing brown and black, Jenny proved to me that it could be done. I love how she wears her black jeans with suede boots the color of faded tobacco, it’s my favorite. Give it a go!

Jenny’s wearing (her leather jacket is actually Theory but I couldn’t find it online, so I swapped it out for the Iro one, and her Alex Mill shirt is a few seasons old, so I gave you the red option here):

Alex Mill Check Shirt — $115.50
