The anti look

Fuss-free func­tion­al­ism re­quires a study in re­fined non­cha­lance

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style News -

Re­mem­ber when all anoraks were hideously un­cool? When you could only buy cargo pants at an army sur­plus store? Th­ese days util­i­tar­ian in­flu­ences per­me­ate menswear—blue-col­lar chic is on the rise! But achiev­ing the per­fect bal­ance be­tween pared-down func­tion­al­ism and look­ing like a mem­ber of the mil­i­tary re­serve re­quires a cer­tain fi­nesse. Bare­bones dress­ing is the pin­na­cle of con­sid­ered non­cha­lance. It’s the anti look. The look that says I could be slav­ishly on trend but I chose not to be. It’s pair­ing an anorak with a vin­tage Rolex, a Span­ish fish­er­man’s shirt with Gucci loafers. It’s wear­ing a wa­ter­proof when it’s not rain­ing. Begin­ners should stick to muted tones—oh, and boiler suits are best avoided.
