Hey, gidday mates! This summer has been all about consistency — having a routine and sticking to it (gym, therapy, ping pong, attempting to eat sugar free, rinse and repeat). And unbeknownst to me, that consistency has leaked into my wardrobe. Over the past few months I’ve worn white on white on white at least half the days of the week, and when I’m not, it’s been blue on blue or green on green, and now that it’s getting a bit chillier, I’ve started with the black on black. Going head to toe tone on tone is the easiest way in the world to dress; according to the experts over at GQ it makes you look taller, AND it’s like the casual answer to the summer suits we were all wearing a couple of years ago. I’m gonna try to carry this through to fall and winter.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m currently lying on my bed fighting off waves of exhaustion after two huge days watching Lorde, Wu Tang, Flume, Chance The Rapper, and a bunch of others perform at Governors Ball this weekend. So many memories. On the first night the line for the ferry was so long that I ended up walking across the RFK Bridge to the 120-something’th Street with like 5000 teenagers who were blasting Chance and DJ Khaled and Lil Uzi Vert from their iPhones. Almost made me feel young again. ALMOST. I shot these photos with my mate Jeremy Mitchell lastClick to Continue!
Comme des Garcons has been one of my favorite brands for as long as I’ve loved fashion. Probably the thing I love most about Comme is that there is literally something for anybody, no matter how freaky or conservative your style might be, and no matter how deep your pockets are. When I was younger and broke I’d save up my dollars and dip my toe in the Comme water with the fragrances (Comme 2 is an all-time favorite), leather pouch wallets, and everything Comme des Garcons Play; but as I’ve grown older I’m more and more obsessed with Comme’s takes on really simple pieces, like the blue worker jacket I’m wearing in this photo — it’s a classic Carhartt or Dickies style, but cut in the most beautiful indigo blue textured cotton. There are also all these little details that I love, like the over-dyed garment tags on the inside and the slubby cotton that you’d only see if you looked at it up close.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Living in New York and never getting out of the city over the weekend is like living in London and never making it over to Continental Europe. It took me five years, but I’m finally getting into the swing of leaving Friday evening and getting back Sunday night. Over the last five weekends, I’ve made four big trips — Upstate twice, Pennsylvania, and Montauk.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’ve been addicted to city living my whole life. The bigger the city, the better time I’m having. But with this whole newfound lifestyle I’m living — getting engaged, putting down roots, redecorating my apartment, getting a dog — all of a sudden I’m loving getting out of the city and into the country at every given opportunity. This past weekend, all my friends congregated in extremely rural Pennsylvania (Amish, Menonites and all) for a mate’s wedding, and I brought along my Nautica city threads to see how nautical style would deal with a clean, green, countryside backdrop. Not a bad juxtaposition if I do say so myself. You can take the old dog out of the city, but you can’t teach him new tricks. Famous last words.Click to Continue!
