Good morning from Sydney, I have just had breakfast & a walk, the weather is just wonderful & I can hear all builders along the street with all their tools. Everything is rather nice, so to say. I’m on the balcony with the first cup of coffee (after the breakfast tea). It’s too hot on the terrace already. I’ve read in one of the newspapers that Australian men is the worst dressed in the world. No wonder at all, I see it everyday & we’ve discussed it several times at home. Maybe it’s partly because people have to wear uniform from early age at school, partly because of the weather that’s nice all year around or because It’s too far from the rest of the world & almost two seasons behind. Or as simple as that they simply have no taste. I don’t know, I just know that it’s very few out there with style or awareness of fashion. Actually, it’s not so much about fashion, to be honest. You can dress very nicely without worrying about trends.
Almost every one seems to wear the shirt outside the pants, whether it’s informal outfit or suit. Ouch, it almost hurts to see that. My darling husband tried to wear his shirt outside his jeans once or twice - it got all of us in the family to protest wildly. No way, thank you! It’s not about expensive clothes or brands either. That’s up to each one really. When the clothes are taking over too much, there’s a risk for the individual to become invisible in their outfit. A good phrase to use might be, Everything in moderation. Clothing should emphasise & strengthen one’s personality. Create little self-esteem & express who you are, without exaggerating. But as always, it is up to each one. What would life be otherwise, huh!
This looks very dressed up but it’s casual with the turtleneck & the cuffs hanging out – not overly done, just stylish, yet informal enough / The Sartorialist,
Look at this beauty, casual, informal – almost a little careless style. A very deliberate style that can’t be copied. It’s just there / Miles Davies, Google,
Simple, elegant & super nice – sometimes it takes no more than that / The Sartorialist,
Pants that sit a bit loose, rolled up with a simple white t-shirt. Suits all really / Errol Flynn, Google,
Khaki / chinos or whatever they are called, simple beige cotton trousers (not too tight) & navy blue shirt with rolled arms. A very pleasing style. Hope he is using socks, however / The Sartorialist,
A classic casual style that works everywhere. The jacket is not required, it works equally well with a nice simple sweater / The pursuit aesthetic,
Just thrown together with his basics & favourites – note the stylish suede shoes with a stripe around it. And the belt. Stylish & cool / The Sartorialist,
A bit dressy, but certainly not excessive. It is always nice with a thin sweater or vest under the jacket. Nice combination & very nice suede shoes. Classic, elegant but still simple / The pursuit aesthetic,
Here, the outfit is more personal with a customized style & taste. However, still simple & nice because of the top part / Sisi shop,
No outfit is complete until the bag is selected. Applies to men also. Mobile phone & wallet are not nice to wear in pockets, it just looks clumsy, awkward & ugly / Ide verkstan,
Take care / Marie
