Cinched and Curled


Ray-Ban glasses, H&M topcoat, Primark t-shirt, J. Crew belt, Cheap Monday skinnies, Dr. Martens boots
I’ve long been toying with the idea of cinching a non-belted coat with a belt, but have only gotten to doing it recently.
It’s amazing how inspiring images we see years ago could have an effect on what we wear today. Heres a flashback of old-school The Sartorialist for you guys:
Pictured in one of my favorite Sart shots of all time is this fellow in a long navy coat cinched with a leaf-embroidered belt.
Belting a coat isn’t the most fool-proof sartorial move, and neither is it the most comfortable. But it does create a nice sharp line on a rather strong-shouldered coat, and it actually helps keep the midsection a little warmer (useful for soothing those post-pigging out chills!).
In other news, I’ve found an easier, more realistic method of achieving the curly quiff. (Two words: curling iron.) My idols over at Drop-Snap would be proud.
