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! 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!
