Hey, gidday mates! Last week I visited my old stomping ground, Bond Street, to shoot this Abercrombie & Fitch Fall Preview (check out my previous posts with A&F one and two here). Now that the temps are dropping, I’ve been living in hoodies, and this woolen version is my new favorite layering piece — it’s amazing when I’m watching Netflix on the couch, it’s even better on a chilly Fall evening, but I like it best under a black leather jacket with black jeans (which I posted earlier this week). Special mentions go to Abercrombie’s impressive array of plaid shirts — if you can imagine it, they’ve got it — and their new denim program, which gets better with every new drop. Now all I need is a slice of pumpkin pie and I’ll be good to go for the rest of the season.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I was wearing this blue suit on the street a couple of days ago and I ran into one of my best mates who took one look at me and said, “You look like a member of Obama’s presidential security detail.” I will take it! Sometimes, as a man, you just have to rock a solid bodyguard-worthy look. And you know what bodyguards never do? Go crazy on the details. Observe the blue suit, matching blue tie, and crisp white shirt. Clean and simple, das it das it.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!
I am very much a child of the Nineties, but I was way too young and way too stuck in the incongruously blended skater/rave culture moment going on at the time in Christchurch, New Zealand, to ever really appreciate the numerous style offerings available throughout the decade.Click to Continue!
