Inspiration served by Tumblr
One of the good things about following a lot of menswear blogs is that they constantly serve as neverending sources of inspiration. Today´s getup is one of those copycat outfits that originated somewhere else on the web (and at that presumably better presented).
Anyhow, i am not usually pairing jeans with ties, as you all know by now. This time however, it works because the fabrics and textures allow for it.You´ve got the rough “Etoile de Nimes” aka “Twill de Nimes” aka “Denim”, the sharkskin coat and the silk black tie. Adding a cotton pocketsquare with a subtle blue check makes it good to go. Yet, there is a little foolishness included: the black velvet slippers with silver-threaded skulls speak volumes: don´t take yourself too seriously.
As always: thoughts are appreciated!
