How to do (flashy) menswear


Untitled
Fling on a neon jumper....


Kurt Geiger flats
...and add metallic shoes.  Done!

Coat: Zara (similar on sale).  Shirt: Uniqlo.  Jeans: Very.com (any of these work). Neon jumper: Random (similars here here & do a t-shirt!).   Gloves: Thrifted. Hat: Brixton (try this or this one).   Skinny neck tie: Borrowed from Michael.  Shoes & backpack: Kurt Geiger

Flash aside,  doing the whole mens thing on a consistent basis is starting to make me want to just go the whole hog and just get a bloody suit - something with a shrunken cut and cropped trousers like these pink ones with metallic gold brogues.

Speaking of gold, once I clocked eyes on these pointy low heeled flats from Kurt Geiger I was sold (finally they crossed the pond from England).  Just enough metallic -  a bit like the silver brogues in this post - a bit obsessed now with metallics and denim together.  Give it a go (if you haven't already).    

ps.  Thanks GQ for the photo on your site during fashion week (last pic).

  15. Those shoes are fantastic! I almost didn't click to see more pictures (I have really short hair, and men's wear makes me look too masculine), but I'm glad I did just because of the shoes! Killer!

  16. That neon jumper is fantastic, I like how's its a bit softer than most neon. Still neon, but not so in your face. And metallic + denim = perfection.

  19. I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing
    problems with your blog. It appears like some of the written text
    in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide
    feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen before. Appreciate it

  20. Zoe P - its a Nikon D700. That particular lens was a rental: 70-200 zoom. Normally I favour the 85 fixed 1.4 !!

    Anon @ 12.34pm - I'd like to know that too if it's happening to anyone else. Looks ok on my screen

  21. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I actually went out of my way to try on a pant suit at Express once... I almost bought it because it looked so good haha!

  24. When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I
    recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is
    an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Kudos!

  25. Maggie Adofo - Whattt?? will you go back and get it? I like to take a quick cell shot in the changing room to keep with me to look at to see if I really love how it looked or if it just looks 'eh' over time.

  31. As mentioned, thousands of people have already
    seen life changing results after using Kyle Leon's Muscle Maximizer for just a few weeks, and there is nothing that says that you can't experience the
    same changes as well. These days there are virtually 1000's of guys and females who are seeking to create muscle mass and strip off body body fat in purchase to transform the way their bodies' glimpse and really feel.
    Yes, obviously, it is the most affordable way of buying
    protein since all you want to do is to obtain those egg whites with
    a tray of offspring.
