Study this old-school way of casual coolness, as you will find it is also the look of the moment.
Dessert sand colors mixed with all-American boy whites and classic cuts blended with new looks, this is the retro style of the future, gents. Come to think of it, what better way to show respect to a classic timepiece than dress your way around it? You see, you only need one single excuse to create a fascinating outfit, just one source of inspiration, a sartorial muse of sorts. With its round style and distinctive details, this timepiece from IWC has striking numerals, a strong and solid stainless-steel case and a slate-colored dial together with rhodium-plated hands and appliqués. The elegance of the watch’s appearance is rounded off by a hand-dyed black alligator leather strap by Santoni. Once we tried it on, we knew what the rest of the look would be.
INNOVATIVE DESIGN PAIRED WITH PASSIONATE DEVOTION TO PERFECTION, MAKE THIS IWC TIMEPIECE THE MOST VALUABLE ASSET OF ANY OUTFIT.
· A white pair of pants always provides a great base for a classy-rebel style outfit. Make sure it has a strong and durable fabric, as it will definitely need to keep its cool once you get on that gorgeous bike.
· If you go for total white, make sure there is a slight hint of it on your shoes. Even a very small one will do the trick of keeping the outfit together.
· This is one of those times we ask of you to be careful in matching your jacket to your shoes. You see, you need to create a two-tone look that doesn’t go off track.
· And, yes, please do wear those socks this time. You’re on a bike, for fashion’s sake!
