I just have something for black jeans. And geometrics – no matter how much the high-street do them to death – are almost always appealing, particularly in the simple yet highly impactive form employed here.
Individually, the pieces which make up this look are decidedly naff and some nondescript but aggregated together with a sizeable dose of insouciance it just seems…right.
Schoolboy shorts and socks would typically bring humour to an outfit and yet, here, they lend an unmistakable edginess to the gentleman’s appearance. Of course, such a statement could also have been provoked by the top bone structure and considerable height on display.
Move over Thom Browne, it’s not about stunted pants, rather cuffs rolled-up.
It takes balls to add an unexpected touch as above, such confidence is to be commended.
