Have you ever wanted to call me up, and ask “Hey.. what are you wearing?” but felt like that could be inappropriate because we don’t know each other and you found my number written inside a bathroom cubicle? Well not to fear! I figure as the collaborative designer of all the clothes, it’d be cool to let you know what I wear day-to-day. As it’s winter, I’ll run you through my winter wardrobe essentials, which prevent me freezing to a cold, cold death.
Assuming I’m wearing my jeans fresh off my floor, along with my sneakers (with orthotics carefully replaced as my dogs chew them when left in the sneakers), I’ll probably start off with whichever socks I can find to warm my cold toesies. I like to roll up my jeans cuffs and let some bright socks pop through, so lately I’ve been rotating pairs of Mario Sloth Socks and Kirby Sloth Socks sometimes I wear one of each because I’m a weirdo. I also love that feel when I lift my leg up over my knee and someone notices and compliments me because it briefly validates my existence.
Next I’ll chuck on a T-shirt. I exclusively wear T-shirts every single day unless I have to go to some formal event where I’ll get in trouble otherwise. Lately I’ve been wearing the 8-Bit Louie Long Sleeve because it’s been crazy cold in Sydney and I have to wake up at like 6AM to walk my puppies or they’ll punish me by peeing and shitting all over my room. So it’s a plus to have a long-sleeve and it’s also softer than the usual tee.
Then we get to the hoodie layer. This one is critical. I have a seamless rotation of the Campus Hoodie and Girlfriend Hoodie that I’m literally wearing right now because hoodies are the comfiest, snuggest clothing item in existence. Plus when I’m confused or stressed I can lift the hood over my head and pull down the drawstrings, which is weirdly relaxing for some reason. Lastly, the front pouch is convenient to carry my morning sandwich as my other hands will be carrying a leash and/or coffee.
Now it’s time to complete the look. You know i’m all about that black jacket lifestyle. So we do one final layer with the Heavyweight Custom Work Jacket. if I’m wearing black pants and then push the hood back over the collar. It actually looks really well styled together, like you’re some sort of stylish person who blogs about street-wear and gives condescending looks to people on the street. But for real, it’s a really solid look that’s also super warm and versatile. You can strip back the hoodie and everything still looks really nice together, and if you’re going out after work etc you can withstand some super cold days with the combo.
I hope you’ve enjoyed what might be the only ever blog post I make here that’s actually about fashion. It only took 8 years but we got there. – Warwick
