Black Coffee

Just as essential as a black coffee rush in the morning is the need to look stylish at work without a decaffeinated air of practicality. But luckily menswear isn't tied up to a suit and tie life anymore, and I've found ways to make office wear more of an adventure. Fitted t-shirts with matrix coding graphic prints look like slick sci-fi tapestry under a rolled up blazer or peacoat, and mesh can subtly net its way into unpredictable terrain when layered carefully. And jodhpurs can gallop their way to become a pole position way of wearing skinny trousers with an ice white twist. My christmas craving however comes in the form of a holdall bag. I've seen so many that leave me jaw dropped, and I just love the idea of the man handbag bulking its way onto the highstreet. There's sticky cave style ones that look neverending inside, and even sport inspired bags that have an urban slick sense to them. I've included a personal favourite of mine below; a titan but earthly looking suitcase holdall from Louis Vuitton. Commuting has never been trendier.
