Every once in a while you stumble upon a trusty outfit formula which you can use and reuse to your heart’s content. For me it’s bright tights, vintage skirts, lace ups and a men’s cardie, when I’m stuck for inspiration I can wear umpteen variations of this outfit before I run out of looks.
At Radio 1’s Big Weekend this weekend, the line-up was that of a rather well-dressed bunch of bands. Madonna excluded. Looking at the photos from this Maidstone extravaganza of fun and frolicking, Irwin Sparks of The Hoosiers stood out as a Brandish-reading sartorialist.
Chino’s are the perfect mix of jean and trouser, but it was excruciatingly difficult to get hold of great fitting chino’s as they’re still a rather American item. This all changed with Uniqlo’s Vintage flat front chino’s. Whilst the price point is usually the selling point with Uniqlo – and at £25, it’s a great price – the detailing is what makes this piece stand out.
