the return of leather pants! they have obviously taken a backseat to my love of grey denim right now. current/elliott makes some of my favorite leathers. their new prospect cute is really cool. it has moto stitching and hidden ankle zippers that updates their classic style that they release each season. what also makes them one of my favorites is the leather they use. it’s not a washed out skin, but actually smooth and supple
if it is a look that feels as though it’ll look like a vogue paris editorial with someone lounging on a couch with sun’s rays shining through the window in a greyish sepia filter, i am probably a fan of it. casual ease is just something that you can’t mess with. this sweater by rag & bone is just another added to the list of heavy knit sweaters. you can pretty much wear them with anything. but california heat kind o ruins its glory
so grey jeans and tan suede shoes seem to be a favorite combo of mine, i guess. but i am also liking striped button downs at the moment. still looking for one in a flannel material in dingier shades of blue, but this one by thakoon works for the look i was going for, a beachy-ish look and left unbuttoned. the boots take it out of that territory
i have an addiction to grey denim without a doubt. citizens of humanity is making some sick ones right now with a ton of depth to them. cannot express how grey is a wash that needs depth to it or it’ll feel ehh. these by citizens are all but ehh and they are ripped so een better for me
stripes seem to be my thing right now. I can’t seem to stop staring at them. mixing stripes is something i just recently got into. brings a little circus to the look but when you choose stripes witht he perfect width and colors that compliment, you really can’t go wrong. since stripes on stripes is a lot, kept everything else staples. went for my favorite solid black jeans by citizens of humanity (seriously these are all i have been living in if not my grey r13 jeans), fitted cap and vans. all pieces that will tone down what will feel like a lot
one thing that i admire about the join chapter lookbooks, is that they aren’t taken in the sense of an average lookbook. there is an editorial feel to them that makes the clothes feel more interesting and keeps me intrigued to see more. it also makes me want to listen to sohn all day, which just makes me even more of a die hard fan of the brand. check out some of images below and check out the rest on their site here.
i am a fan of the mom jeans and probably the only guy that is. 3×1 did an awesome job with this pair here and here. they have a wash that almost feels like an authentic pair of vintage 501s that i am just obsessed with right now. when worn on the slouchier side, cropped, hanging on the hips and paired with some birks or loafers, i could not be more happy seeing them on a lady. the slight kirsten dunst vibe when pairing them with a slouchy silk shirt also helps put them in my favor
faded black denim are my addiction right now. i literally cannot stop talking about them with my sisters. then add distressing to the mix, i just go crazy. amazing what makes me happy. went with casual ease with this look here as faded black leans towards that realm (as you may have known with my other posts), but new jeans this time. visited mother denim a week back and they have some good stuff coming, including some more faded black and my favorites the frayed hem styles. they will sure be making an appearance on here
mixed prints in slimane style styling with one of my favorite jeans because of the ankle zips and the wash. seriously ankle zips and slip-ons are a match made in heaven. plus these slip ons are insane. nothing beats the ones made by the originals and vans just killed it with these. then a cap to finish it all off
i’ve been a fan of the animal printed blazer since riccardo tisci sent down an ombre version back at the ’07 givenchy couture. there is something about it that adds some edge to a chicer edge to a look that studs just don’t do. when i saw this one by joe’s jeans, i knew exactly what look i wanted to go for. something more on the sporty side and pairing it with a hoodie, sneakers and some worn jeans. i mean…what else are you going to expect from me?
