Car parks, Trousers & Triangles

Car Park, trousers and triangles what an interesting threesome. (If you read that in a dirty way, get your mind out the gutter. Does that mean mine is in the gutter cause I covered that angle just incase?)

Does anyone else seem to think I take a lot of photographs in car parks? I think I have a problem. I need to find somewhere urban and not a car park.

This was clearly taken before the beast from the east 2.0 came along as I could get away with just a jacket. Absolutely BALTIC outside at the moment. The sea is actually terrifyingly rough. Less BBC Weather, more fashion rambles.

Trousers and trainers are inThis look was a big thing in 2016, it appears to be still alive and kicking, seeing a lot of Hypebeasts/Hypebeas in either trousers or joggers. Not much of a jogger wearer myself so I have fell on the side of trousers. Picked up some from a vintage shop (will drop you some info on this gem soon). Went for a grey check this way I can partner it with either black or white. Or both as I didTo finish this up, I popped some classic Bordeaux kicks on and rolled up the legs and I was set to roam about Birmingham shopping for the day.

So, let us talk about these resolutions.

This started out as a WDYWT and I thought yeah fine I will show you what I wore since I write about my clothing a lot, but afterwards let’s talk. Basically I tossed and turned on writing and posting this one for over a week now. New year, it is a load of utter cr*p. The whole I am going to be healthy, work out more, be a better person?

No, I am sorry, you probably aren’t.

We all end up the same lazy, unhealthy A-holes we were in 2017. Most fitting thing I seen recently is a meme; jokingly pointing out that as an individual you aren’t leaving 2017 problems in 2017, you are probably taking 2010 problems into 2018.

My student debt, still there. My gym membership, still not renewed. Drink less? I haven’t said no to the pub yet this year. Don’t get me wrong I am going to pay that off and work out more. Not because it’s a new year, because I want to make a change and get somewhere in life. So PLEASE let us get rid of this ridiculous notion that we are going to be better people cause it’s changed day. Make the change for yourself, not for 2018. All setting up these ridiculous notions does us later when we take a slight fall is send us spiralling down and leaving us feeling angry and upset. Do something positive for your mental health, be yourself and make the change for you. 

I swear I won’t get heavy on you for a while, but mental health is something we should all be talking about, so this can be my 2 cents and positivity. 


Anyway this will make you laugh, I went out in a leopard print blazer… Bold even for me.

So hey, I thought that I would see the new year in with some wow factor. Whether that be ‘wow that is loud’, ‘wow that is awful’, ‘wow that’s brave’ or just out right ‘did he dress in the dark?’

Snazzy is the name of the game, I know I look like something out of a safari trip! Seriously though New Year in the bars it was full of wild animals. LITERALLY, was like mating season guys on heat for a midnight kiss. If all else fails them at least they could get a 6 inch sub around the corner.

I loved this get up. So the blazer was a go from the start, slim fit and thin making it perfect for layering. The shirt had to be black, the smart hidden buttons made it simple but effective if you ask me. Check out the image below of the skulls for collar buttons, the devil is in the detailNever neglect the little finishing touches. Black leather jacket and black skinny jeans to finish the outfit a staple of mine, the black allows for the leopard print to really wow. To finish this get up Green Rousden Creepers, it had to be alt pair of footwear to finish this gothic yet on trend outfit. with the only colour being in the jacket this left some freedom on colour for footwear, and the yellow on the jacket really complimented the green on the shoes.

What Did You Wear Today?

20170812_134124

 

Hat: Supreme Camp; Brown White Camo, Red bogo

Top: Patagonia LS White

Trousers: All Saints Chino

Footwear: Vans X Thrasher Sk8 Hi

 

Grey Britain today, what more could you expect from September? No more Summer, not quite Autumn. That time of year which feels like limbo. Bright side is, perfect long sleeve weather, any streetwear wardrobe is incomplete without Patagonia, always keep mine stocked with a LS White and LS Black.

For you Supreme Fans, can you believe that this hat is FW16? Longing for time to calm itself down a bit. The cow camo has been a firm favourite in my rotation since. I remember buying this while in a field at Leeds Festival, how I managed to cop while that intoxicated, no idea. Flooded tents, loud music, urine flying in pint cups, and that smell that can only be described as disgusting yet blissful freedom of no responsibility… Festival season 2018 is calling already! 

Vans X Thrasher

IMG_20170819_113002_967

 

Sheeeeee, these beauts are still sitting online at Vans (perplexes me). With the iconic Thrasher flames wrapping around the Sk8 Hi silhouette, these are an old school dream. The subtle release of these created quite a stir, now been out a while, the apparel sold FAST, yet the footwear has sat. For me these were the piece to get, these have become part of regular rotation.

Week one finally arrived.

SO FINALLY, my week one cops arrived. Once again the size of week one was something else. Always a large drop, always too much I want. I copped all I wanted (taking a massive L on the Nas Tee, but we can just ignore my BIG L).

What did I actually cop then?

#shovellingshit #cleanteethgang

SHOVEL

Time to start digging.

SO who is part of the clean teeth gang? Following up last years incense matches, this years free gift of a Toothbrush had all the Hypebeasts talking. Could hear the murmurs in LDN about how fresh Pete’s breath was after getting a new brush.

Did anyone anyone else cop the shovel? I certainly dug myself a hole with the other half after that landed on the door step. How could I resist this though, absolute FIRE.

Michel who?

MICLAGLO

Michelangelo, who else. Anyone remotely into art knows this name, even if you don’t you would recognise his naked David (Cheeky, depending on angle). This year supreme have brought his art to a LS Top, burgundy was fire from the offset and this piece was a must in my collection. The fit is nothing short of perfect, baggy in all the right places and a LS Tee with loose fitting wrist. This piece is 100% my piece of the week.

Made Possible With Your Support. The Venus tee was teased before the season even started, slight change to the bank print on actual drop. Always a sucker for a front and back print, nothing wrong with being the person who takes their jacket off cause the back print is too good to hide.

Pack your bags.

BAGS

Does anyone remember those HEAD Sports Bags? I remember members of my family carrying so much trash around in those, these feel like a throwback to them. The way SUPREME is wrote across the top, all the way down to the material used. This has sat now for 3 weeks in the black why I don’t know. cause Supreme threw a curveball with something different. Keep an eye out for posts to come and you will get to know I look to be different while everything now is mainstream. I’ve seen people say it’s like a bin bag, personally I love these new bags. I did always rock bin bags as a kid at halloween and was always the freshest bin bag monster on the block. #TheFoxHuntersPub #HalloweenChampOf1999 

Did you even start the season if you didn’t get some new headwear?

Mandatory hat. If I’m out of work you will find me with a hat on my head turned backwards and most likely Vans on my feet. Pink Camo? Yeah, sorry no way I was holding back on this LIT piece. The wardrobe will feature the single block colours, but once you’ve built your base it is time to push the boundaries, get some wavy patterns and snazzy garms. This hat combined with Vans Vault X Brain Dead Era LX or Vans X Stussy Chukka Boots in Pink make for more Iconic Duos than Kanye West and Taylor Swift . . . Wait, what? #shovellingsomeshit
