Is it okay to swear? Cause January is finally done after what felt like 3 months and 74 days not 31. I feel like it should be New Year all over again cause that was one damn long month. No doubt the rest of the year will fly by in a blink of an eye and we will be sat heads in hands working out where 11 months of life went. Also why the hangovers are still getting worse. Maybe 2019 is the year I give up drink? Who Knows. Moving into February, a month for love, romance and Supreme season is back upon us. All this combined and I’m going to be one broke ass fella.
January saw me hit a sensible streak of not spending, that was hard. I did break this
at the end of the month, I so nearly made it by hitting the sales accidentally (of course) and purchasing some new black skinny jeans, some trousers and a pair of Vans (I did say that the Sk8 Hi’s in the Checkerboard Pack had my name on). So admittedly one thing was in the sales, so I’m not quite the bargain hunter but more the shopper with a lack of self-control/marketer and retail assistants dream customer.
Looking back over my Instagram, I thought I would share with you my favourite products for the month.
drum roll please, is my jazzy as anything Patta Crew necks. As you can tell I didn’t vary on the colour scheme much. I wore the bullet tee to the pub, took my hoodie off to a series of gasps and a “what the very f*!k are you wearing”. I won’t tell you my reply, safe to say the conversation that night was full of insults and beer. I absolutely love the patterns on these, paired with a simple pair of boots, and dark blue denim will really finish the outfit.
Vans X WTAPS, Anaconda print in blue. From back in 2016 these have made a strong comeback to my regular rotation, simple and smart design. From a distance they look like a normal pair but once you get a bit closer you can see the detail, sometimes all you need is a bit of subtlety. Same can’t be said for the Blood and Semen pair from Supreme in FW17. Goth up your garms
(I am still that emo/goth kid at heart #blackparadeforever) fill your outfit of black and add these on the bottom. They definitely fit the emo aesthetic as this artwork was created by Andres Serrano is recognisable in popular culture as it is also featured on a Metallica album art work.
I described this on Insta as a hard hat, it is padded and thick so pretty much sits like a one. Sadly I am half bald. Hence the hat regularity – it hides a multiple of sins as I will be as bald as Ross Kemp
without the monstrously large balls in a couple of years. Also I like wearing a hat.
Came across the key-ring while organising some draws, completely forgot I had this, no idea where Supreme got the inspiration for this piece or why I decided that a pregnant body with a fetus and bogo inside would be a solid purchase. Yet here I am showing you and not regretting it…
So show some love, give me a follow on Insta (@leader_scope) and see what is in the rotation for February.
