After 1342 Fashion Shows, 78 hours of small talk and 498 glasses of champagne – yes I counted – I went to find some sun, now enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Sardinia.
The location for Look du Jour – 69 is a ruin in the mountains of Sardinia. I am wearing a tank top by American Apparel, Sandals by ZIGN, a Borsalnio hat, a citreous quilted vest (no idea about its origin), and way too short shorts, obviously on purpose. Because wearing your pants at half-mast is the shit as we all know.
Since we like to dare and challenge our readers now and then, here’s a close-up of my feet, a premiere. Enjoy!
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
Dandy of the Week: Daniel Sturridge
A Dandy sees red
After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
