This album is mostly dark denim with a noticeable lack of practical workwear. A closet full of hard-wearing sensible earth tones can be a bummer. Colors, patterns, textures and accessories liven things up a bit. It’s nice to grab some ideas that go beyond throwing on a hoodie or a flannel.
There’s nothing wrong with those things, of course, but I tried to disrupt my own tunnel vision, to change how I think about what’s available. Spoiler alert: there are options besides workwear, repro, and neat freak menswear!
Some of these looks can be a little loud, perhaps even a bit foolish, and that’s ok. There are other goals besides dressing like a somber unassuming dude. We live in a vibrant, colorful world. Clothes can reflect that.
