Adventures in the city
Ah yes, the half gap year, half urban-adventurer look. An interesting one, but it's actually a cut perfectly suited to changeable temps. The utility-style gilet layered over a hoodie scores some big layering points and, let’s be fair, those statement, backpacking-in-Bali-style trews definitely keep things comfortable and lightweight enough to deal with the odd burst of warm springtime sunshine. All in this season's key natural hues as well. We’re big fans.
Killing the two birds of style and practicality with one well-aimed sartorial stone, our man above – snapped during the Parisian menswear shows – has chosen a sturdy waterproof jacket (a spring essential) in a sheer finish. Let’s break it down: he can tick off protection from sudden April showers as well as flexing his colour expertise by showing off the bright-orange bomber jacket underneath. And, if you didn't know by now, in-your-face colour choices are key for summer. That's just the top half of his 'fit. All he needs now are some vintage-wash jeans and chunky trainers, and that's 2019 nailed in one look. A real masterclass.
