The latest Buck magazine hit the stands last Friday and amongst its Gallic-themed pages is a great piece on the importance of denim this S/S. Highlighting the same Acne/Lanvin collaboration I’ve been talking about here recently it seems that there’s nothing to stop a full on indigo revolution once the sun finally breaks out.
Thing is: don’t limit yourself to jeans. Denim or chambray … there are so many ways to go blue aside from the obvious. My tip: try mixing denim into a formal outfit. A fitted denim shirt looks great with a knitted or chunky tie .. or dare I say it a silk bow tie for maximum contrast. Wear under a blazer or with tailored trousers and keep it pressed. Topman have a fantastic denim shirt instore, the type of shirt that you could find during a lucky day’s haul at a vintage boutique .. or pay £30 quid for now and not have to rummage through all that musty stuff.
