Wayfarers - Brick Lane

A quickie oldie from the archives. This was shot nearly a year ago in Brick Lane London, both were wearing wayfarers. It’s a trend I didn’t pick up for a few more month and then Rayban brought out their new old wayfarers and now they are just bloody everywhere. I still like them though, I just wouldn’t splash out for the real thing, why? Because everyone has them!

The French don’t wear much patterns, certainly not much loud colourful patterns, but when they do wear it, they wear it well.

The only pattern I got in my backpack right now is a blue checkered flannel shirt from Uniqlo… hmm… not quite on par with these lovely ladies, but if you have some great pattern tucked in your wardrobe, time to get it out and wear it!

Have you been noticing the surge of red trousers or jeans in London and especially on guys? Well I certainly have and here’s a little collection of them :)

I promise I’ll write more next time but I’ve been feeling a bit worn out lately and need to take it easy, which will come very very soon. So bear with me beautiful boys and girls and I’ll write proper very soon.

Oh, I’m getting a haircut tomorrow, wish me luck!

One of those looks I’d expect to see on The Sartorialist, I couldn’t believe it when I spotted him. It’s a stylishness and self assured air that can only come with maturity and a fantastic look that I would’ve expected to see in Europe. Gentlemen, don’t be afraid of colour!
