Hey, gidday mates! A few things: 1. New York Fashion Week: Men’s starts today; 2. It is unseasonably warm right now in New York (it’s going to be 16 degrees/61 Fahrenheit on Wednesday); and that means, 3. We can actually wear well-thought-out outfits without having to worry about dying of cold. Hooray! This Tatras goose down puffer jacket is my secret weapon right now. It’s warm but almost completely weightless, and because it’s puffy it compresses, which means I can wear it underneath just about anything — including a tailored suit jacket — eliminating the need for an overcoat. It also makes me look super Italian, which can only mean good things. Si si? Maybe. Hard to say. Happy Fashion Week, New Yorkers! Happy Monday, everybody else!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Allow me to detract from the matter at hand for a moment to say that this has been a crazy ass month. First, I went to Nicaragua. Then I came home and I’ve had a combination of two Australian boys and my parents staying at my apartment. Next, it’s getting hot in NYC which means that everyone is on the street constantly and tempers are flaring; there have been two shootings on my block in the last week. And finally, I’m turning 31 on Wednesday. It’s all happening. I remember GQ writing one time that the key to getting through stressful times (or work meetings when you haven’t slept), is to be the most dressed up guy in the room. I also remember hearing one time that blue makes people feel at ease. This outfit is my response to May. Do with it as you will.Click to Continue!
