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 where your head’s at, but as far as I’m concerned, there’s something very cool about wearing a head-to-toe one-colour look in the warm weather. My favourite of all time is probably white-out (white T-shirt, white jeans and white high top Chuck Taylors), but blue is definitely the easiest colour to do it with because there are so many complementary shades to play with, like stonewash denim with indigo with sky blue with navy… This combo here is kind of interesting because the darkest colour that grounds the whole shebang is usually found on your pants or jacket, but here I’m wearing it in the deep indigo T-shirt, and that acts as a solid base for the pants and cardigan which might look a little flimsy together without that dark anchor. Y’dig? Anyway, give it a go, I promise you’ll like it. Das it das it.Click to Continue!
Used internally on Maybelline NY to NZ and externally on Isaac Likes Blog (re Maybelline) Black and navy; gold and silver; pink and orange; spots and stripes; we know, we know, they’re fashion’s great taboos – wear them together and the whole world might collapse. But hold on a second, what happens if you throw all caution to the wind and break the rules? If it’s good enough for Miuccia Prada, it should be good enough for you. The world’s top designers have been creating scandalous clothing that puts decades of old wives’ tales to rest; every which way youClick to Continue!
One of the things that’s been most interesting for me throughout the Little Brother design process has been working with colour. As a general rule, guys stick to the tried and true: Navy blue, charcoal, black, white, khaki etc. But as evidenced by the sheer amount of men walking the streets of New York in loud shorts right now, that rule goes out the window the moment temperatures explode. (At time of writing, it’s 32 degrees outside.) When we were selecting fabrics for our shorts programme, I couldn’t believe the variety on offer. “These are crazy,” I said. “No NewClick to Continue!
Photo: StreetFSN Mr Brad Goreski was the star attraction on day one of Milan’s menswear shows, though his presence was very nearly eclipsed by that of his suit. It was current season fluro orange Jil Sander and it caused no small amount of excitement among the streetstyle-blogging masses. Everywhere he went, a trigger-happy crowd followed, and when the lights went down before each show, he stayed perfectly visible in the murk. At Burberry Prorsum he told me: “There are no limits. I decided I’d start off looking like a glow-worm and maybe I’ll tone it down a little bit laterClick to Continue!
