Going out is all about dressing up, preparing, finding the perfect outfit to make the difference, the one breaking up with the codes of the usual dull and insipid look. With this common consent always making people choosing the safer clothes, the most mainstream just because they are affraid to shock, to stand out. French evils, weighty heritage of thousands years spent to distinguish with elegance, unconscious requirement our ancesters established like a dogma.
Why such a deflection? For this jacket. I’m not used to bold picks. And I can easily identify myself with the French stylistic legacy. But when I discovered this jacket I thought myselft I had to make something with it! Short, rock, varsity style, croco-like… all in all shiny.
It is less to say that I had to fight with Romano to have these New Balance on one of my shootings. The guy even wrote about them, he could just not help doing it, like if I lifted his target’ skirt in the playground. All the same I pay tribute to him, he was right about this pair: “it’s killer!” like he said.
