How to avoid an STI (‘shorts and t-shirt infection’) this summer

Really digging the heavy-up-top-light-below styling that is recurrent throughout this collection. 
On windier (and cooler) summer evenings, a chunky knit is enough to insulate you whilst allowing your - allegedly athletic - calves to remain front and centre.

RAPID REBLOGS
- (‘A series where we talk some more about what we decide to reblog’)

While our North American/East Asian counterparts gear up for chestnuts on an open fire or some such fanfare, we in Australia are literally sweating buckets as summer kicks into high gear. However, that hardly means you have to, or should, compromise on tailored clothing.

Lyo of patrickjohnsontailors is sporting an incredibly versatile (seasonally appropriate) look comprising of high twist wool trousers and a linen jacket. While PJT are very well known for their lively take on the darker brown suit, tobacco cloth is an excellent alternative that gets short shrift in our environs. This is perplexing, considering it is perfect for weather down under this time of year. Light on the black tones that prevail in darker less dusty browns, tobacco flatters many complexions both indoors and out. 

The cloth has an especially sportive appeal, making it doubly well suited to the PJ house style. I’m rather envious actually, the sleeveheads on Lyo’s jackets are my sartorial equivalent of peering over at an adjacent diner’s dinner: “What did he order? It looks very good! I want that!”

My tenure at Four Pins exposed me to the beauty of Gentry NYC’s editorial work. Truly - with the small exception of several noted Japanese publications - I’ve not seen many other examples of styling so directional, progressive, and yet balanced. 

The team there are focused on the versatility in clothing, on blurring the boundaries between workwear, streetwear, and the more radical offerings they possess.

This EG work shirt (now, unsurprisingly, sold out) is a testament to that philosophy. It’s featured prominently in much of their promotional work - a testament to its versatility. With an excellent standing collar and tasteful patchwork details this is going to be good inspiration for the summer. 

Truly a chambray/casual/work shirt without equal.

#Menswear illuminati - bless me with your intergalactic taste levels, where are the must hit spots in the Windy City? 

Only there for 10 days, so curate your suggestions ruthlessly. The only criteria is that they be worth your - and by proxy, my - time.

Menswear Uluru (closest I could think of to an Australian ‘Rushmore’) bar the tie…real quick tho, always a pleasure wearing garments with which I can associate a face, values and human endevour #pjt #christiankimber #thearmoury #vscocam

That’s the thing about being a contributor - you don’t get to choose what goes above your byline.

Having said that, I’m happy this long overdue bit in my local Aussie rag about patrickjohnsontailors was finally published. 

See you boys next month!

Product In Review: Oscar Wylee ‘Jarvis’ eyeglasses

image

Buying eyeglasses is one of the more polarising purchases in the digital age. The days of a single evil corporation dominating the eyewear market are waning, losing ground to independent companies that exploit the power of the internet in order to obtain a competitive financial edge.

While American label Warby Parker immediately springs to mind, other non-vertical eyewear businesses have since emerged around the world. In our neck of the woods, that title falls to Oscar Wylee. An obscurely titled start-up out of Sydney, giving Aussies a taste of acceptably made optics at a reasonable price.

GQ Japan’s 8 modernist looks for Fall 2014 

Styled by Naoki Ikeda 

The outfits 3rd (minus the pocket square detail on the outerwear) and 6th from the left are my favourites. To be honest, anything involving Mackintosh outerwear quickly harnesses my attention. 

Japanese casualwear brand JOURNAL STANDARD makes frequent appearances in this feature, with due exposure given over to their Aqualinc and Trisect sub-labels. Notoriously difficult to find overseas.

For those big into the directional styling of sportswear brands like Club Monaco and Gant Rugger, this stuff is going to be pure crack cocaine. Click through the link for a detailed breakdown of the featured brands and individual outfits. Hopefully, your Kanji game is stronger than mine.
