Sam Morton is our next subject for a “Blink” wardrobe review, an perfect to be featured in our menswear week. Sam is studying Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts. We really like Sam’s style which is artsy, individual and very cool. Thanks for getting involved Sam!
Best buy from Autumn 2009: was a 90’s navy vintage fitted Burberry jacket with over-sized gold metal clasps. It has a military feel to it and has an interesting structure, with wider shoulders and tapering in at the bottom. It’s quite short but looks good over a baggy jumper and Dr Marten boots.
What I’m looking forward to buying for Spring 2010: is some monochrome track pants to be worn with chunky boots and a leather jacket. Chain mail style, thin knits or vests and I’ve seen a lot of exaggerated cowl neck shearling jackets that I want too. Anything with nice buttons and shoulder details.
My personal style is: relaxed tailoring. I like a good fit and cut, structure and detail but I’m not conservative in what I wear. At the moment I think monochrome and colour blocking looks good, mixed with details such as a feather or some pleating. I like mixing greys and dull browns with abstract shapes and Navajo, earthy prints.
My current style icon is: Edward Scissor Hands, Star Trek, James Dean and Brandon Flowers.
