Everyone is always preaching about Alden wingtips, which is fine, but I'm really feeling for British takes on the classic shoe. While I cannot discern whether these are Grenson's, Tricker's or something else, I do know they are some English shit kickers - badass, chunky, country leather sole, and never out of style. My only question: where da selvedge at?
An Italian in London no doubt. The color of the pants, the lapels on the jacket and that scarf tell you everything you need to know. If this guy lost those Intro. to Chemistry goggles he'd be perfect, I mean, perfectto!
I don't wear hats because of guys like this. I never stood a chance.
Rucksacks are making a Travolta sized comeback these days. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. Canvas? Game. Leather? Set. Actual functionality? Match.
These dudes are on some dandy overload type steeze and both are killing it. The guy on the right in particular is sending a serious message and it's coming in loud and clear. Plaid suits are not for the sartorial novice and unless you are a fashion week guest I'd recommend leaving this one to the professionals - admire from afar and walk away. Just. Walk. Away.
The Thom Browne size jacket either looks great or terrible every time I see it in the wild. This guy falls under the former of the two because he's mixed in normal sized garments to offset the shrunken proportions of his blazer. It's not so much about some fancy juxtaposition as it is about not looking like a clown. Also, the first thing I noticed here is his two tone shirt - I really love those. No Gekko.
Speaking of Gekko, look at this suit! I haven't seen lapels like that. and on a single breasted jacket no less, in like 20 years. Kudos to this guy for telling all the skinny, notch lapels of the world to shove it. If you are wondering why this fuzzy dice suit seems so current, well, the answer lies in the low button stance.
