Hello, my little lovers of darkness! Today we’re gonna talk about infernal substances, sun-block with 200+ protection level and how to dress appropriately for visiting cute dirty alleys.
It’s not a secret that black looks cool. That’s why I hate it with all my heart. I mean, I love it! I look so damn awesome in black! But I loath the fact that so does every other dude or chick, were they to choose this colour as their ‘thing’. The hard truth for me to comprehend is that, if you put a pair of black pants, a black top, and a black hoodie/leather jacket/blazer on – that’s it, you’re sorted! No one out there will give you shit about your taste (or, more importantly, the lack of it). In fact, just because you wear black, people would automatically think that you have style, charisma, an Instagram account with black-and-white photos of brick walls and rubbish containers, and most probably a secret, or something. The whole ‘affection’ thing would work kinda like this:
“OMG, honey, you really need to meet Cornelius! I met him last night at Patricia’s 21st. He’s sooo interesting! Wears only black. Amaze! I was like: ‘Do you wanna beer, or something?’ And he’s like: ‘Nah… Beer is overrated.’ And I’m like: ‘So true…’ And we were sipping water the whole night! He’s also shown me his scar on the knee. This guy is sooo deep.’
You see? It’s such an easy pass to the cool crowd, it pains me even to think of it! So hold on to that ticket and waste no time!
Know this: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK!
How deep was that, huh?
Peak lapels, high armhole, short cut – a very sleek silhouette of the jacket is balanced with a looser fit track pants and heavy boots.
Pocket squares are so overrated! Cool dudes uncompromisingly choose plush toys instead. This little pussy-cat is so cute that it even got mentioned in the title of this post!
Someone wears a kilt pin only with (surprise!) a kilt. For those of you who don’t have a kilt (duh!), but for some weird reason has a kilt pin, I suggest wearing this beautiful item as a fancy brooch. Dear kilt pin, here come your 15 minutes of fame!
Some cool track pants would look more than decent with a pair of polished military style boots. As for your face, try keep it in the shadow at all times – it would make you look so mysterious! Chicks dig it.
Combining different shades of black is, like, THE shit right now. So you know, go wild, ha-ha!
These functioning button-holes on the sleeves were made by hand. It takes about 4 hours for a good tailor to make 8 of them. So look at this picture a bit longer – have some gratitude, for Christ’s sake!
Although bellows pockets are common for hunting style jackets, they look very natural on a pseudo-military blazer like this. The sleeves of the knit are deliberately longer and look dope with this kind of gothic/sporty/military outfit.
‘My job here is done. Can’t wait to get home and put my pink Hello Kitty slippers on…’
