londondude 's Thoughts:

Hey there Ladies and Gentlemen!

Hope you are are all good, its almost the weekend already – Yay!

Living in London, its a fairly eclectic mix of styles that I see on a day to day basis. Its one of the things that I love about this city. I suppose such an environment fosters and encourages my inner fashion soul. Now among my vices, I must confess to being a fan of Mad Men on tv. Now, I could say that its because of the witty writing, or the well assembled cast of actors and actresses, but I would be lying… The main reason I enjoy it is seeing the wonderful mix of Fifties clothes, brough to life in a great backdrop of the Advertising and Marketing industry.

With this in mind the other evening, I decided to pay homage to this look and dress accordingly for a trip to the local pub (Bar if you’re not familiar with that British term)

This outfit really felt wonderfully cool, it was super preppy at the top, I do like the gold collar bar which really highlights the tie in a smart way. Now, to make it nore suitable for the pub, it was toned down somewhat with the boating deck shoes, and my boot cut Levis. Me and my girlfriend had a wonderful evening and perhaps enjoyed one too many Jamesons and cokes, and her – too many margherita’s LOL : )

I hope you guys like this look, I leave that in your democratic hands in the ‘chic’ vote : )

Thanks for all your lovely comments so far,

Kind Regards

I agree totally about the fashion being an outlay of creativity, let people think what they want. I could comment about their boring, uninspired, sports branded tops, etc, all day long. But I dont. The weather does annoy me too, I much prefer the Fall and Winter seasons. I dont enjoy being in shorts and t-shirt and still feel like I am in a sauna. Not my thing! Unless I lived by a swimmng pool....

Id like to experiment here as well.. but the cons here are much greater than the pros you know. Im considering the OVER- THE- TOP HOT climate here.. also, people here raise a lot of eyebrows when they see you dress up. I mean, I just dont get it hehe.. Fashion should be an outlet of creativity, we shouldn't hinder that right?? :)

Cheers pal, London is great, but I do believe that you its possible to experiment and have fun with many different styles no matter where you live. Unless its like a major strict country or whatever, but still - I cannot see the harm?
