Since we were bored recently, we decided to take a stroll to the Bauhaus archive and were hanging out in front of their door.
In contrast to the occasion, we wore two de-conceptualised outfits, which by coincidence looked like the ones lying in the rented Lithuanian Mercedes. David was wearing a T-shirt and jeans by WEEKDAY, shoes by RAF SIMONS x ADIDAS, a jeans-jacket by DIESEL and a vintage-hair-cut from the 90s. I wore a black T-shirt by BOSS (Turkey fake), pants by G-STAR RAW, tennis-socks by H&M, a silk-bomber-jacket by DIESEL, shoes by PALLADIUM (of-course the model, that Brad Pitt is wearing all the time) and sunglasses by LESPECS.
After a few minutes we were chased by the guard and his dog (it was a leashed sheep dog) away from the court. Apparently we did not fit the concept.
Since we can’t wear only white sneakers, and because there is nothing cooler, than a sneaker that reminds one optically of a snub-nosed revolver or of a broken nose of an amateur-boxer, we recommend you the ZX 500 2.0 “Black Snake” by ADIDAS – even if it’s name is stupidly technocratic.
You can purchase the shoe for amazingly cheap 80,- dollars, for example here. And please do not be fooled by the fact that the shoe is described as a women’s shoe. That is far behind times. We at Dandy Diary are post-gender - and the shoe is available up to size 45.
You cant go wrong with a black sneaker that looks like a snubnosed revolver. Our pick of the day Adidas ZX 500 2.0 black snake
A few weeks ago - one recognises easily because of my much darker, much loner and much more felted hair - we had a wild shooting with the photographer Marlen Stahlhuth and her team, in the most beautiful clothes from Herzogaurenach. Of course we wore nothing but ADIDAS (and as mentioned, felted hair).
The complete photo-series is going to be released in August in the ADIDAS ORIGINALS magazine – and we are already excited, to see what we look like. For sure verrrryyy sporty.
For the moment, you (and us! and us!) will have to be pleased with the so-called (ugh!) ‘behind the scenes’-pictures. But maybe that is enough for a quick Five-against-Willy.
Mike Jeffries’ life isn’t easy seeing he’s probably the boss of the possibly most unpleasant fashion label in the world: ABERCROMBIE & FITCH (A&F).
His company is being mocked everywhere, be it for dull marketing initiatives (dozens of half-naked adolescents in front of newly opened stores), questionable human resource practices, unpleasant school-sports-locker-room-smells in the stores, or, most frequently for the ‘chavy’ suburb style of the brand.
When you’re constantly exposed to such humiliation you would at least want to lead a somewhat comfortable life outside of the realm of public awareness. For example when you are traveling.
As was revealed recently 68-year-old Jeffries insists on having exclusively freshly groomed, male staff on his private jet, wearing nothing but ABERCROMBIE & FITCH polo shirts, flip flops, boxer briefs, gloves (black ones when silver ware is brought, white ones when the table is being set. This absolutely makes sense!), and a hint of the brand’s cologne. Those of you wondering if something is missing here: Yes, of course there is. It’s the pants. And that is, even if everyone is going to get angry again about A&F, absolutely correct.
We too, would have our staff constantly run around in underwear – if we had a private jet, that is. We can’t see anything indecent about it (we’d merely make massive adjustments to the gender diversity).
Quite the opposite actually: We find such consequent acting out of one’s aesthetics very dandyesque. Therefore we’re awarding Michael S. Jeffries, the ethereally aesthetic Botox-sugar daddy, the highest rank of this blog. He is our DANDY OF THE WEEK.
