Supersize Street Style
By Gavin Jewkes, 24 July 2014
An oversized T-shirt, much like a carefully groomed moustache or a pair of Ray-Bans, can turn a run-of-the-mill outfit into something superb. But don’t just take our word for it – we sent our photographers to gather evidence of how the sartorially inclined gentleman on the street wears his and nails it. Check it out.
There's sadness in this man’s eyes. He has his wardrobe locked down – and he's a master at sharpening up a longline tee with the help of simple tailoring – so that can’t be what's getting him down. Perhaps it’s because someone’s stolen his laces…
Why let something as inconsequential as blistering heat stand in the way of you looking rad in your leather jacket? This guy’s layered an oversized BOY London vest underneath, keeping him cool in appearance but still not in actual body temperature. And that’s absolutely fine by us.
You don’t have this man’s hair, so you couldn’t possibly look as good as he does in an oversized T-shirt (or, let’s face it, anything else). But wearing yours with a pair of Nike Air Max, like him, is a strong idea.
One of our oversized styles is called 'skater’. Yes, he took it literally. No, you don’t need to accessorise with a skateboard.
Hold up. Who’s this silver fox rocking a longline denim shirt with complete, unadulterated flair? Dad?
