When you are constantly on the go you have to really work on that street style!
We have taught you well, so far. You know what blues to choose, what to do with this year’s nineties revival, how to match checks with patterns and then some. Here is an outfit for the everyday you, the professional who conquers the city streets on his vespa, going from appointment to meeting and from lunch to aperitifs. What do you wear when the day ahead seems endless and the backdrop looks like an urban version of the wild, wild jungle?
DRESS THE WARRIOR
· You absolutely need to indulge in a pair of slim fit pants that stop right above the ankle. They are comfortable, do not crease and are the best way to look well dressed on your motorbike.
· Let your pullover hug your body without being too tight or too lose. This way you obtain a nice shape and look properly dressed for business. While the weather is still sweet, you don’t even need to put on a jacket. Just head out the door without one.
· The shoes need to be comfortable but they also need to show the people around you that you really have an eye for detail. Let it be a new pair of round-tip, brownish derbies with a slightly chunky sole that will make walking a comfortable experience and, yes, you can ditch the socks.
· The man on the street doesn’t carry any type of bag. This Samsonite laptop backpack is the perfect accomplice to your demanding lifestyle and it gives off an aura of young coolness, without the grunginess.
STEEL AND LEATHER COME TOGETHER ON THIS OMEGA AQUA TERRA SEAMASTER FOR A STYLE THAT IS PERFECT ON A DEMANDING BUSINESS DAY.
