Tradie chic

Henrik Vibskov socks, Raf Simons sunglasses, Patrik Ervell shirt, Gucci mens necklace, Australia mens blog

Because, tradie chic.

Let's be honest and admit that tradesmen's workwear can sometimes be our go-to option in terms of sartorial choices. It is not necessarily fashionable or dapper per se but there is a certain edge to the shorts, boots, overall casualness and ruggedness that gives it its own style.

Gold metallic trousers

Because, gold pants. (And too close to the edge).

Gold trousers are celebratory clothing pieces that you only see on the runway or at festivals but it does not mean you can wear them only when it is time to get ostentatious or exotic. That said there is also a very thin line to looking like you have dressed for a costume party and wearing them like they are your daily go-to pants.

Last week we got invited to the Jaguar Drive Day at Sydney Motor Sport Park and had the pleasure of experiencing the F-Type Coupe. Glenn and I were treated to a couple of laps with a professional driver and had I not been wearing a helmet, my hair would have ended up a perfect wind-swept sculpture after the rounds.

Jump-suit

Topman jumpsuit, blue belt, Adidas suede sneakers, Raf Simons sunglasses, white visor, Australia mens blog

Because, morning power walk in a (jump)suit.

High fashion labels have sent male models in jumpsuits down the runway over the years but have never seem to turn them to commercial success. Mention mens jumpsuits and most guys would instantly think of tradesmen (oil change, anyone), sportsmen (skiers, Formula One drivers) or animal onesies.

Birds

Because, the birds.

With easier accessibility to digital printing, more designers and brands are crafting statement looks by using distinct bold prints. A vibrant printed shirt can make you stand out from the crowd for the right reasons but many still prefer the comfort of a check or stripe casual shirt as the thought of teaming a vibrant button-down can come across as complex.
