Hey, gidday mates! My Sunday morning routine is much like yours: Roll out of bed, into the shower and down to the coffee shop on my block; where I sit and hang for as long as possible before attempting to do anything at all. Today was no exception. Except I took a couple of new pieces out for a spin, both by Balenciaga from MATCHESFASHION.COM. The first, is this black T-shirt — plain, except for a tiny little print reading “balenciaga” on the left breast.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! On Tuesday morning somebody told me Chance The Rapper was performing in Queens that night, so I bought tickets and had one of the most fun nights I’ve had in a long time because Chance The Rapper IS FECKING AMAZING LIVE. If you get a chance to see Chance take that chance. I wore this jacket and pair of pants by Cottweiler, and these sneakers by Veja from MATCHESFASHION.COM. You might notice that this is way more high tech than anything I’d usually wear, but this old dog is attempting to learn new tricks.Click to Continue!
We got hit by a late-coming heatwave these past few days, so I’ve been getting back into my favorite pineapple shirt that I picked up a couple of months ago from Mr Porter. Like I said a couple of weeks ago, tone on tone dressing is definitely the easiest way to go for summer. Especially when there’s so much else to think about right now, like the New Zealand election not going the way so many of us hoped it would, and the hurricanes happening in the Caribbean, and the President tweeting crazy ish, LeBron and Michael Rapaport fighting back, and Stevie Wonder being the hero of the weekend for taking a knee at the Global Citizen Festival (which I was lucky enough to go see). Let’s see what happens tomorrow.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Since summer started I’ve been on a mission to overhaul my entire wardrobe from small sweaters and medium T-shirts to all large and x-large everything. You could say that New York had its way with me and I quit fighting. So with that in mind, these are a few of my latest acquisitions: The oversized Coach Apollo sweater; Kotn sweatpants (an item of clothing I vowed I’d never wear outside the house); Hanes x Supreme T-shirt; these new Nike Pocketknife sneakers I picked up from Dover Street Market a couple of weeks ago; and my brand new Moscot Zevs. All in all this is my attempt at off-duty-BBall-chic. It’s a work in progress.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m sitting in my bedroom surrounded by medicine because this morning I woke up with such an extreme sore throat that I went straight to the doctor and they were like, MATE you have the strep. It’s less fun than it sounds, trust me. But anyway, in this post I’m wearing a bomber and a cape from Dior Homme’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection, featuring artwork by the Brooklyn-based painter Dan Witz — the paintings are from a series called Mosh Pit and feature young men thrashing around in a dark room. I will now go die a slow and painful death in my own dark room. Wish me luck.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! This summer has been all about consistency — having a routine and sticking to it (gym, therapy, ping pong, attempting to eat sugar free, rinse and repeat). And unbeknownst to me, that consistency has leaked into my wardrobe. Over the past few months I’ve worn white on white on white at least half the days of the week, and when I’m not, it’s been blue on blue or green on green, and now that it’s getting a bit chillier, I’ve started with the black on black. Going head to toe tone on tone is the easiest way in the world to dress; according to the experts over at GQ it makes you look taller, AND it’s like the casual answer to the summer suits we were all wearing a couple of years ago. I’m gonna try to carry this through to fall and winter.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I don’t know about you, but I go through these phases of buying multiples of certain basic pieces and wearing a variation on the same outfit, days/weeks/months in a row. Right now that includes canvas pants, white T-shirts and suede sneakers (all of which can we acquired for well under $100). That said, I love me a big ticket item, and my latest acquisition is from Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga. His take on the black denim jacket has elongated shoulders and a cropped, tapered waist, which affords the wearer something of an inverted V superhero silhouette. Who needs the gym??? No doubt it’ll be on a constant rotation in the upcoming months, alongside this Loewe T-shirt (which looked just as good on Jenny as it did on me).Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m currently lying on my bed fighting off waves of exhaustion after two huge days watching Lorde, Wu Tang, Flume, Chance The Rapper, and a bunch of others perform at Governors Ball this weekend. So many memories. On the first night the line for the ferry was so long that I ended up walking across the RFK Bridge to the 120-something’th Street with like 5000 teenagers who were blasting Chance and DJ Khaled and Lil Uzi Vert from their iPhones. Almost made me feel young again. ALMOST. I shot these photos with my mate Jeremy Mitchell lastClick to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Long time no talk. My life has felt pretty hectic over the past few months, and my motivation to blog has dropped as a result. Sometimes when things are so up and down the last thing you feel like is writing about yourself on the internet. I’m sure you can relate. Or maybe you can’t, I dunno. Basically I’ve had a few huge life shifts which I don’t really wanna talk about and then a ton of travel in quick succession — Coachella, New Zealand for my Nana’s funeral, Anguilla to DJ a wedding — and then this past weekend Jenny and I deejayed 21 hours worth of parties in two days. Some would say I’m blessed to be stressed.Click to Continue!
Comme des Garcons has been one of my favorite brands for as long as I’ve loved fashion. Probably the thing I love most about Comme is that there is literally something for anybody, no matter how freaky or conservative your style might be, and no matter how deep your pockets are. When I was younger and broke I’d save up my dollars and dip my toe in the Comme water with the fragrances (Comme 2 is an all-time favorite), leather pouch wallets, and everything Comme des Garcons Play; but as I’ve grown older I’m more and more obsessed with Comme’s takes on really simple pieces, like the blue worker jacket I’m wearing in this photo — it’s a classic Carhartt or Dickies style, but cut in the most beautiful indigo blue textured cotton. There are also all these little details that I love, like the over-dyed garment tags on the inside and the slubby cotton that you’d only see if you looked at it up close.Click to Continue!
