It was one of the first cold, rainy days of the season. In my head, I scolded myself for picking the worst time to look for Fashionistos. It is then that I spotted this Fashionisto. His style is structured in a striking fashion but the combinations seem so foreign. I felt as if I was suddenly on campus at a college in the UK. The UK is often ahead of the time creating unique twists to classic styles. I found a great blog that represents this exactly and shows the personality of UK menswear. It's called Individualism. I was interested in the diverse colors and fabrics that were making a wild combination but worked as one effortlessly. Green and brown can usually be unappealing together, but clearly this Fashionisto isn’t afraid to break it. These risks and quirky individual aspects of the pieces but overall classic style reminded me of a menswear designer that has had be drooling – Loden Dager. Dager manages to hit all the interesting aspects of what is happening in menswear for fall and winter 2012. The main point is to take the risks and play up on trends and combinations you can think of. The best outfits just come to you and they don’t always make sense.
I loved that this Fashionisto was wearing a silk scarf as well. It is officially scarf season and this is nothing to get downplayed! Scarves are one of the most dynamic pieces you can wear. Most men I see around campus are wearing common scarves with no real print or interesting fabric to it. Take a step forward like this Fashionisto and do an interesting printed and textured scarf. It can be the cherry on top of an overall look. I also notice that some struggle to tie their scarves correctly. Kinowear: How to Tie a Scarf — Nine Tying Techniques is your guide.
