When I Saw The Future, The Geeks Were Right

Every guy at some point wants to dress like a true gent. A slick blazer can become a marvel super hero cape, transforming even the reluctant grunge kid into a sophisticated style genius. And in my opinion an air of sophistication is even better when it doesn't drown out an urban or indie background; instead serving to acompony it. Take Paul Smith's PS collection, which injects 80's purple into discoteque style blazers that look so retro they 'twist and turn' the clocks into something modern. Tailored clothing meets geek chic qualities, where colour and texture compenstates for those wanting to dress smart but with an edge. The jackets look like melted silver, the blazers have a fizzing suede desert effect, and shirts are layered under dusty corrogated cardigans that look to have been laced and printed from woodland. This combination of sophistication with earthy tracks is something I'll definately be adopting in London. And in my personal style addition to this post, I'm wearing an army mesh top that's begging to be camoflaged into a swarv' city landscape soon.

  9. I love how the coziness of this sweater is challenged by the more structured cut. And as for Paul Smith, genius. That purple jacket belongs in your wardrobe.

  16. I love the cardigan.

    I'm in love with your style, it's a shame more guys don't adopt it instead of just wearing polo shirts and jeans like they do around here.

  19. perfect purple
    your outfit has the elements of a gentlemanly suit, the cardigan like a blazer, green v-neck as a vest, the pin has the placing of a pocket square, really neat. a suit for the 21st century!
