I get a ton of DM’s asking me to explain my personal style. If I’m going to be honest, I sort of dress like an updated or “refined” version of my Dad; which is fucking ironic since I was always so embarrassed of him when I was a kid. Weird how that works but instead of opening up a huge can of daddy issues, I’ll just break down what I’m into.
On any given day you can always catch me wearing at least one article of vintage Harley-Davidson®. I think I do a pretty good job at curating and collecting pieces for my closet from the 70’s-90’s. It can’t just be any HD item because lets face it, some of the designs were pretty shitty but I’m way into their single-stitched tees or collaboration with Tori Richard who makes super rad camp shirts.
As for denim, I really love how Hedi Slimane updated the Saint Laurent silhouette. I have a few pairs but they don’t necessarily hug my body yet give me space like you would wish in any successful relationship. You know? Like, love me but also admire me from afar when I need room to breathe. Acne Studios Ace denim is amongst my favorite but it takes too long for them to break into that comfort feeling that you can only get from someone who has seen you through your darkest and most joyful moments. I recently took my chances on the All Saints Cigarette cut. By far the cheapest on the spectrum of designer denim yet…. probably my most favorite fit. Cost effective and you get exactly (or even better than) what you expected. For anyone like me that loves a good skinny jean but has calves like a fucking ‘roided out body builder, these are the jeans for you. Perfect on the waist and thigh then gives you a little room on the calve and then BOOM back to skinny on the ankle. All Saints, I could kiss you guys right on the lips.
The only shoes that pretty much hit my feet these days are Hedi era Saint Laurent. I’m obsessed with the Skate shoe but can rarely find them in my size since they have long been discontinued. I also love Gucci sneakers and all white Air Force 1’s but feel they’re getting played out. I know, I know, they’re staple pieces.
My accessories are pretty much never changing. I can never leave my place without my Supreme Tunnel shades, Cartier ring and Louis Vuitton Folio iPhone case.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. Lowbrow shit with a highbrow touch. Even when I was super young I always said I wanted to be that guy that looks like a dirtbag but is driving a Ferrari. Something tells me that’s exactly where I’m headed.
