street style: @theguyfrommilkandhoney

I was drawn to Ibrahim’s style initially because of his outfit’s silhouette. The layered, top heavy sherpa denim jacket and shirt contrasts amazingly well with his skinny jeans, which then flow into his bulky DM’s.

The attention to detail is also excellent – a look I often go for is dark jeans and shoes – but Ibrahim has inspired me with the pop of colour in his yellow laces. It was only once I began talking to him that I noticed the captivating, aztec patterned bag and shirt which go together so well, and add huge amounts of texture to his look. This is another aspect I might incorporate into my style.

It’s clear Ibrahim has natural style, and probably threw this outfit together without thinking, but it really made him stand out from the crowd due to the excellently scaled proportions and complementary colours. I’d like to thank him for being my first street style subject of many to come!

Peace.

instantly improve your look with floral

Ah, floral… The print that never goes out of style, and which now firmly holds its place in the menswear category as well as women’s.

For me, every man needs at least one floral shirt in his wardrobe. Contrary to popular belief, it is a versatile piece of clothing. In spring/summer, the shirt reflects the season, and looks awesome buttoned-down on a roasting day. In autumn/winter, it has the capability of bringing a smile to someone’s face in a world (UK) where darkness never seems to subside.

This is one of my newer additions (of many) from ASOS. The pattern is the most striking of all my shirts IMO, and is an affordable way of imitating Tony Montana’s (less the cash & cocaine) style. I used to be FULLY against short-sleeved shirts, but they have started to make their way into my wardrobe.

Style Tip:- Roll short-sleeves up for a closer fit, and so you don’t look like too much like a 90’s office worker.¬†

This is from one of my favourite brands¬†Massimo Dutti, a higher-end high street store I try to buy investment pieces from at least twice a year if I can. As I bought this online (no stores in the North), I wasn’t totally sure of the fit. When I received it, the shoulders and sleeves were perfect, but there was excess material around the torso so I had it altered.

Style Tip:- If you are taken by a particular pattern or print, but the garment doesn’t fit properly, don’t despair… There are some reasonably priced, extremely talented tailors out there who can make alterations so it fits like a glove (shirt).

Another ASOS shirt. I can resist everything except temptation, and their affordable, varied designs are extremely tempting. Love the simplicity of this shirt, with the bright white contrasting the black. It has also washed well (something I was concerned about), which is crucial when building a wardrobe.

Another ASOS shirt… You’re getting the idea. This time long-sleeved, which can look quite formal when tucked-in, so I have opted for a more relaxed feel. Also, rolling up the sleeves means the faint print is stylishly shown on the inside of the rolled-up cuff.

Are you already into floral? Or, do you fancy giving it a go? Leave a comment below to let me know.

Thanks for reading, and remember… A floral shirt is for life, not just for summer.

Peace.
