Hey, gidday mates! Full disclosure: I haven’t shot anything for the blog for like two and a half weeks, so I’m running low on imagery. What I do have, however, is an archive full of outfit posts, so today, and perhaps for the next couple of days, I’m kicking it vintage with some 2015 favorites. First up, let’s talk oversized coats and how to nail the look.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Like I mentioned on Instagram earlier, Jenny Albright and I deejayed the Shop Style New York Fashion Week Men’s event on Tuesday night and it was a parrrrrty. I was dressed by John Varvatos for the occasion, and I chose my look based on one of my favourite movie characters of all time: Gabriel Byrne in The Usual Suspects. He plays a con-man turned Manhattan restauranteur, and his style is classic 90s formal — a dark suit with a white T-shirt tucked in underneath. You might have noticed from my recent Instagram posts that I’m tucking in nonstop at the moment, even with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. Here are my reasons: It makes your legs look 10 times longer; it makes your waist look smaller and your upper body look bigger; and Johnny Depp was always doing it when he was young, so it must be a good call. Give it a go, I think you’ll be surprised by how good it looks right now.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I went to the J.Crew store on 5th Ave a couple of days ago to check out a panel discussion with some of New York’s leading young designers (Prabal Gurung, Joseph Altuzarra, Tabitha Simmons and the Public School boys included), and while I was there, I spotted a mannequin dressed in a blue blazer, pale blue oxford shirt and white jeans, and was like, ‘That’s my next outfit.’ It’s easy to forget just how good the classic menswear staples look, and how sharp a navy jacket looks paired with an oxford shirt, white jeans and a brown belt. Sometimes you’ve just gotta get back to basics. Check out the shoes too — they’re by To Boot New York, and they’re that perfect mix of suede and sneaker; not quite a chukka but not quite a designer hightop. Killer.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Ironically, I’m writing this post on the day that warmth and happiness have both left the city, leaving us in a frigid pit of fog and rain and despair, but last week when I shot these images the heat was here with full force and it left me no options but to get the legs out. For the record, I am not somebody who enjoys wearing shorts, but sometimes part of being an adult is doing these we don’t like because it’s the right thing to do. So here we are. For the occasion I wore my favourite cut-off grey crewneck sweatshirt with a white T-shirt poking through because every man should feel like Rocky at least once in his life. Amirite or amirite?Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m sitting in the departure lounge at Charles de Gaulle Airport about to catch an IcelandAir flight to Reykjavik, where I’ve got a quick 90 minute layover before I fly onto JFK, and into “one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city,” or not. Turns out the three feet of snow they expected in New York was actually only 10 inches, which, as far as I’m concerned, is the best version of an oversell and under-deliver that I’ve ever encountered.Click to Continue!
