THE PERFECT DENIM, #SIMON MILLER

464403_mrp_cu_xl For years I have bought countless pairs of denim in search of the perfect denim with no success.I don’t understand why nobody ever says finding the right pair is such a hustle. It’s just about how they fit, if you are a denim person you know what I mean. How soft or rigid the cotton is, how distressed, how it was dyed, the quality, and I won’t even dive into the “lived in” feel that can’t be casually ignored if you love your denim. Till date I have never seen a natural lived in feel on denim that these light wash denim pants from simon miller. These denim pants are beautifully, if the price tag wasn’t that steep I would have picked up three pairs, just enough to keep rocking them into the ground( please don’t bury me in these) . I can’t vouch for the fit of these pants but as far as the wash and fade go, this baby here has half the job done. With fabric sourced from Italy and manufacturing done in Los Angeles , these pants have the best of both worlds, elegant structure and a rugged finish.

MORNING BLUES

IMG_0597 Picking out a suit, shirt and a tie is like figuring out sitting positions for a wedding; you don’t put uncle chatter box with auntie chatterbox, that’s just a recipe for destruction. The trick is to find the right mix of contrast, and trust me it doesn’t come easy, there are no coded steps to achieving the ability of keeping it simple without a sweat but a few pointers definitely make it a tad bit smoother . Personally, I copied looks off the internet till I found my own stride, mistakes led to discoveries and then, soon after, my mentors were giving me the thumbs up (that is what 30 likes on style forum mean).

CUT OFF JACKETS & HORSE BIT LOAFERS

IMG_8598

Slowly I am finding my step in the casual wear section. For years I have struggled to really settle in with my casual wardrobe, it’s been quite a hassle especially from the kind of the street wear background that i got sucked in at an early age. Lately i find comfort mixing the edge i inherited from street wear into my sartorial wardrobe, personally i think the balance defines me perfectly.

#THETiESTORY, LORO PIANA

loro pianal 4 solid navy blue ties and I am still out here catching the blues. I know you asking yourself, “does he really need to keep buying the same thing over and over again?”. The trick with navy ties is that they always come in a different hue of blue, and if you happen to be one who cares about matching your blue right down to the hue then you understand my obsession with these beauties. Personally I hate pairing navy ties and navy suits with different hues, in my opinion it mars the cohesion of the ensemble, so I try as much as possible to pick up ties that work well with the blues in my wardrobe.
