“tough” is the best part about fashion. It’s far most interesting to go against the grain or do something “different”. The fun part is trying to figure out how different brands or styles fit together. In the fit I posted I was trying to mix different “genres” into a cohesive fit.These look sick. Excited to get mine in. I am going to personally pair them with sneakers, think these would look cool with some Bred 4s maybe - think in that last fit pic you posted them with boots which is tough imo unless its a super casual boot like the Caldera
I don't disagree. I think the most interesting fits always crossover multiple aesthetics. Its why ALD's lookbooks are so good - they combine workwear, streetwear and ivy league prep among other aesthetics in a super interesting way.“tough” is the best part about fashion.

1. jacket was man-tle which is like high end Australian “workwear”
2. Mid layer was acronym which is complicated overthought techwear
3. Denim was JE (of course) and is streetwear (and prob one of the most interesting pairs of denim JE has put out)
4. Boots were common projects which is probably the most hated brand on the internet.
so how do you meld “workwear”, techwear, streetwear and “fancy shoes” into one fit and not look like a moron? That’s the big question.
I think my fits in general demonstrate my personal style and how I as an individual like to style random things that I like. Sometimes it works and sometimes it fails hard, but it’s way better than any formulaic way of dressing. Easy isn’t fun and style isn’t supposed to be easy.
The mega awkward fit on this jacket probably makes it one of the biggest misses/disappointments of the season to me. Incredible piece if your body proportions can make it work.
