Hey, gidday mates. I hope you like these photos, because I shot them with Bobby Hicks in the freezing rain on Tuesday, was in bed with the flu that same night, and am still in bed as I type. That’s two times that I’ve been seriously sick over the past two weeks, so either I’m having a particularly unlucky run, or my constitution is weakening in my old age. Anyway, you see the turtleneck I’m rocking underneath the plaid shirt? That’s a style move I stole from Leandra Medine over at Man Repeller. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Some of the other colourways you’ll see online are craaaaazy futuristic, but I wanted to go back to basics and make a pair that resembled the Vandals I used to rock on the regular when I was a gangsta (in clothing alone)Click to Continue!
The Friendly Professor. Photos: Melodie Jeng Fun fact: Of my three best male friends here in New York, two are in desperate need of glasses but refuse to wear them because they haven’t been able to find ones that they like enough to rock in public. I go to movies with them and watch as they squint like the dickens in an attempt to see the giant, blown-up screen. I point billboards out and they laugh and say they have no idea what I’m talking about. I sneak up on them and it works every single time. The point I’mClick to Continue!
