In the hope of being able to provide a more regular flow of posts, I’ve decided to
lower my standards add occasional posts focusing on a single outfit I particularly liked. This is the first one.
I put this outfit together for the purposes of a job interview – the dress code was described as “smart casual”, and I was told that “nice trousers and a collared shirt” would be perfect. I stuck with a dressed-up version of my usual “edgy” style, rather than something more conservative, figuring that the added confidence of an outfit I felt comfortable in would serve me better than a “safer” outfit.
I’m yet to find out the results, so it remains to be seen whether my choice was a good one. UPDATE: Got the job! WE MADE IT.
With that out of the way, here are a few pics of the outfit:
I took the liberty of assuming my go-to black Levi’s jeans qualified as “nice trousers”. Up top, I dressed it up with a patterned viscose shirt from AllSaints and navy wool blazer from Uniqlo, and threw on a recently-acquired and excessively long scarf from AllSaints to combat the chill of the British winter. A final “good-luck” touch was the concrete necklace my girlfriend bought me for Christmas.
To polish off the fit, I went with my black jodhpur boots from Saint Laurent as my footwear of choice. The combination of the polished leather finished and sleek silhouette made them the perfect choice to complete the “edgy bizcas” theme.
