Last week has some ridiculously sunny days (contrasting with the blizzard that blew and scratched my face off today) and allowed me to take a few shots with an old friend.
This jacket is something I picked up from the Urban Outfitters Renewal section. I love the vintage fits and general messiness of the clothing, though saying that, one vest I did buy has doubled in size since purchase and I can’t quite pull off the ‘here are my pecs’ look.
Camo has become a very popular look, and while I have seen camouflage been adopted into tailoring as well (with both good and bad results) I have instead decided to opt for a crumple tie-dye style workman jacket, which has a similar look due to the green tones. I find this jacket ever so slightly big on the shoulders and wouldn’t mind tailoring it down, but when buttoned it pulls in allowing a snug fit.
I’ve paired it with a white shirt and one of my new favourite accessories, collar tips. These chained collar tips are sold by Topman and instantly add detail and attract attention to any plain shirt. Try to go for a nice looking metal, it’s easy to choose something that can look very cheap and most likely over time it’ll scratch and fade, looking tacky.
The white shirt balances the louder jacket and would best be combined with a darker bottom half. I decided to roll my sleeves over the shirt cuffs, as generally I think these jackets look better rolled up, but again that is personal preference and personal style.
Hoping for a sunnier day tomorrow as I should be attending an event or two, but screw it - I like to layer anyway.
