Combing these streets for inspiration via the wardrobes of strangers is the name of the game, running into people like Andile Biyana is what I call a home run. As interesting and complex as menswear is, I find womenswear intriguing in terms of boundaries and limitless it is to experimenting. Many will quickly label Andile’s style as “vintage”, as loosely as that label is used it’s really an intricate play on pattern and drape, simplicity conveyed with a strong pinch of confidence. I love Andile’s approach to her wardrobe, and her personality doesn’t stray too far from amazing.
Ever since I scored this three button unconstructed jacket from Tommy Hilfiger, I have been hunting for the perfect light wash denim to complement them for my advanced jay Leno look. Nothing says I am about to have a swell weekend like a pair of light wash denim. These heaven-sent denim pants are from faded glory, I know, that’s the last brand I expected this gift to come from. The weight of these denim pants are really light they feel like one of my tuxedo pants, with that I have had them tailored extra slim for a sharper feel, and I totally love the outcome.
