Hey, gidday mates! I shot this one on the East River on Tuesday morning right before I had to run to the airport to catch my flight to Los Angeles. If the denim-on-denim combo looks familiar, it’s because I have probably blogged this outfit about seventeen thousand times, and that would be because it’s my go-to whenever I’m stressed and I need something easy and familiar that works for all occasions (within reason): Meetings, check. Travel, check. Weddings, ehhhh hard to say. Denim on denim can also handle some big colour, like these Supergas, which have been getting a lot of play this summer with neutrals like my white jeans and khakis. The moral of the story is: 1. Get a uniform! It helps when you’re feeling the heat; and 2. Don’t be afraid to introduce colour into your wardrobe! It’s more fun that way!!!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Happy Friday. You might have noticed my outfits have been running the full gamut from suit and tie to jeans and leather jackets recently, with this one here being on the particularly casual end of the scale. There’s no doubt that I feel strongest when I’m wearing a great jacket, button-down and tie; but New York gets crazy hot in the summertime, and sometimes it just makes more sense to kick it casual when you’re running around the city like a headless chicken. Plus, I’m obsessed with 90s style, and what’s more 90s than stonewash denim on denim with a pair of Vans Authentics? It’s like clean grunge… or an old school CK Jeans commercial. To try this one at home, keep in mind that the denims should be similar/complimentary but not identical, and remember that light wash denim and black sneakers are a perfect colour combo. Das it das it!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Just a quickie to show off what I wore on day one of the Milan men’s shows — aka my best attempt at channelling James Dean. Like I said yesterday, Ermenegildo Zegna is quite literally on the opposite side of the city from my hotel and I’m always the last to arrive; these photos were taken by Melodie Jeng as I was running into the show at the 11th hour. Speaking of Ermenegildo Zegna, check out my opinion of the collection, here!Click to Continue!
When in doubt, go classic. It’s something I remind myself constantly when I’m choosing clothing, and there aren’t too many menswear pieces as classic or iconic as the Baracuta G9. Just FYI, the Baracuta G9 might not have been the actual jacket that James Dean wore in Rebel Without A Cause (the jury’s still out), but it’s a close enough replica to fool the average humanoid. Anyway, now that it’s getting hot here in New York, this is about the heaviest layer I’ll be able to wear for the next few months, so I figure why not go all out with the colour? I’ve been keeping it super simple with a plain white T-shirt, blue jeans and black leather lace-ups (literally just like James Dean in the movie), and it makes a great change from my usual all-blue-everything wardrobe. Easy.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates. Happy Monday. I must admit that when I wore this outfit in Nicaragua last week a certain best friend of mine (Jenny Albright) told me to go back to my room and change, because, “I don’t even know you anymore,” but sometimes you’ve just gotta stick to your guns because you feel like dressing like an 80s rich kid who’s mismanaged his trust fund and been sent away to a jungle hut by his parents to think about his actions. If that’s what you’re going for, a front-tucked linen popover with a pair of stonewash jeans is just the ticket. Amirite or amirite?Click to Continue!
