Daily Outfit 3/5/17

What is happening friends!

Another busy weekend for me with volleyball and birthdays keeping me occupied. A quick outfit post from the other day. Here I am wearing black skinny jeans from asos, a beige knit, Levi denim jacket (favourite), knitted scarf and Adidas x_plr in blue. Accessories include ring, watch and sunglasses. 

I find this outfit to be a comfortable yet stylish for walking the streets, catching up with friends or just having a relaxing day. This outfit is perfect for those colder days, however the layering helps to accomodate for the warmer weather as well.

Take me back to Paris


What is happening my friends.

So the weather here in Southern Australia is getting quite cold (for Australia anyway). So I have been look through my photos of the time I went to Paris last year, where it was warm, beautiful and just plain amazing as always. This photo was taken in front of the Notre-dame cathedral. I’m wearing just a plain white ASOS singlet with denim shorts and white converse, which are cut out. It was a simple look for the summer weather that is stylish in a simple way when accessorised properly and with a light button up shirt to go over, to stop you getting burnt and to also add some layering to the outfit. Stylish yet practical.

Outfit aside, Paris, France is one of my favourite places in the world and I would do anything to be back their right now. If you haven’t been to Paris I suggest you put it on your list asap.

Every man needs a good suit! 


What is happening my friends!

Adam here.

Now a massive part of my life that I want to start incorporating into this blog is my fashion or just men’s fashion in general. It plays a huge part in my life, in a sense that what I wear can dictate my confidence, my persona and they way I feel. I want to pass on some of my tips, styling tricks and habits that I do to be ready to walk out into the world a styled man.

This first post is about suits. The first suit I was given was one my mum and dad had bought me for my school formal. It was light grey, blue suit from the local shopping mall and was many sizes too large for me. However, even so, I was over the moon. It was a massive moment and almost like a right of passage that I had passed through getting that suit. I thought I was James Bond and felt like I looked every part as good. It change my thoughts on men’s fashion and how items of clothing can make you feel great about yourself. The next suit i bought was the first one I purchased myself and was for my then girlfriends formal that year. It was an all black suit and was still a little big on me due to salespeople having no idea, but again it gave me the feeling of looking like a million bucks and I loved every moment of it. I wore it too a costume party dressed as James Bond (who would have guessed) and received tonnes of compliments, sky rocketing my confidence and the way I saw suit having an affect on people and myself.

Now track forward 5 years into the future to last year, where I had a wedding coming up and I wanted to purchase a well made suit. A suit that fitted perfectly and was made of the finest materials. I searched high and low till I came across a suit, so perfect, so elegant I had to have it. However the price tag said different. I wheeled and dealed with the shop owner and after many many hours trying on suits I somehow left that shop with three suits (one black, one grey and my pride and joy, a navy blue one) and a very empty pocket. I didn’t like the fact I had spent so much money on these suits though, as I wasn’t going to wear them every day unfortunately.

In the end, when I put that navy suit on that day of the wedding, it all made sense. It felt amazing on me and I looked even better. Every doubt I had about buying three suits was justified in the moment by how good i looked and felt.

From then on I have tried my best to continue to grow my fashion arsenal, especially in my suits.  Every man deserves to have a good suit in their wardrobe. It is an essential and will really make a man feel like a man.

In the words of barney Stinson ‘Suits are full of joy. They’re the sartorial equivalent of a baby’s smile’. I never fully understood this quote properly until I had a proper suit which then made me agree with it 100%

So if I have to urge you men to have one decent item of menswear in your closest let it be a suit. You will thank me later.
