I know I may be preempting the changes of the seasons with this post – like everyone else I’m 100% clinging on to the last days of summer – but I’ve been waiting to shoot this for a while now. You know when you try something on, fall in love but realise they’re out of your size but you NEED those trousers, well, I did just that and I’ve only just got them back from the tailors.
For me the transitioning periods between summer and winter are my favourite times of year – whether it’s spring or Autumn – you truly get to make the most of your wardrobe. Wearing lighter summer pieces in more layered up looks. This time I’ve teamed up with Natural Selection London, to pull together a more transitional look, styling pieces from a pallet more suitable for the warmer weather, but layered under darker tones.
I am not usually a denim guy, as far as I’m usually willing to go is a pair of straight cut black jeans, but when I saw these salt and pepper boxer cut trousers, in a thick Japanese denim, I fell in love – aside from being a size up around the waist the cut and fit was super nice, and the off-white denim with the black fleck completely sold them to me. Matched with Natural Selection’s Raglan Supima 3/4 length sleeve top, they bridge the summer winter gap perfectly.
Surprisingly, I’ve never owned a denim jacket though I’d been looking for a black one for a while. This one fitted just right, a piece you can utilise all year round – their (non-fade) Black Wells Jacket – is one I’ve been living in ever since! It’s super simple without the chest pockets on the front, which make it easy to dress up or down. To finish things I’ve gone for my pale mint, speckled sole, Reebok Classics. And the watch is my Stainless Steel Nixon Time Teller with the chainmail strap – what’s going to be your transitional piece this Autumn?
