Hey, gidday mates! I mentioned the other day that I’m spending a chunk of November in Los Angeles to keep things fresh (and to get a breather before the winter chill hits), and my first West Coast stint officially started yesterday, but won’t last long — I’m flying East for a wedding in South Carolina tomorrow, then back to NYC for a DJing job on Saturday before coming back here to LA on Monday next week. It’s all hatnin’.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Just a quickie on Friday morning before the long weekend begins. Full disclosure 1: I’ve posted this outfit at least once, maybe twice on the blog already, but it’s one of my favourites, and this one was shot in beautiful New Zealand, so I’m taking a free pass. Full disclosure 2: I slept in till 11:15am this morning! On a Friday! Very strange for me because I wake up at 7:00am every day of the week, so it must be the jet lag and readjusting to this NYC late summer heat. The morals of the story are: Alongside my leather jacket and my denim jacket, this Baracuta jacket is the best investment piece I’ve picked up in 2015; and… That’s all I’ve got. Everything’s still hazy. Enjoy your weekend, friends!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Happy Friday! As a self-confessed style nerd, I’d be lying if I told you I don’t obsess about the small details in an outfit. Because I do. I really really do. So recently, my number one solution to every sartorial conundrum has been: Tuck it in. No matter what. Boring old jeans and a T-shirt becomes a cool 90s movie star moment. A short sleeve shirt and dress pants becomes a 1950s candy man. And one of my most common outfits of late, a simple pair of khakis with a white T-shirt and denim button-down, becomes Don Draper off-duty; the kind of outfit the ad man would wear mowing the lawns or playing ball with his kids on a hot Saturday. You feel me? The key is to keep the proportions classic — notice my pants are slim but not skinny; the T-shirt is fitted, not sloppy; and the denim shirt is worn open like a lightweight jacket. Too easy.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! What a week it’s been. I flew back in from Europe on Tuesday night, deejayed with Ms. Jenny Albright till 3am the next night/morning, worked the next couple of days, then picked up a car and drove Upstate for a sunny weekend away. I packed this exact outfit so we could shoot it while we were there, but it rained the entire time, so it had to wait till I arrived back into the city yesterday. As you know, I love a white and blue combo outfit, and these PF Flyers are such a solid dark blue that I figured I could get away with wearing this cornflower blue suede jacket with the white jeans (I wouldn’t try it without that dark shoe foundation though, it’d be too much light on light). If you’re not a fan of the white jeans, these shoes will also look great with stonewash denim or khaki pants, and a simple white T-shirt/patterned short sleeve shirt like the one I’m wearing here. Too easy!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! For my first shoot back on American soil, I decided to put together an outfit inspired by one of the archetypal characters in American cinema: The 80s high school geek. As you might imagine, when I was growing up and watching The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles and all those other amazing films, it wasn’t the jock or the rebel or the richie that I related to, it was the kooky kid with the sense of humor who looked about 10 years younger than his classmates and who always seemed to put himself in the wrong place at the right time, resulting in hilarious consequences for all. His favorite style? Attention-grabbing. His favorite shoe color? RED. These Supergas are the ideal companion to my khaki, white and blue ensemble (and will look equally good if you choose to eschew the white jacket in favor of an easier khaki pants/pale blue button-down combo). But who can argue with the results!?Click to Continue!
