Denim + Chino Goodness
What to wear, when you cannot be bothered
Words by Billy George
Have you ever just woken up on the wrong side of the bed, and thought, "F*ck This Sh*t!"? Who am I kidding, of course you have. If you don't know what I'm talking about then how have you gotten your way every day of your life? I'm curious. Tell me!
Sometimes, it's a matter of just throwing something together that you feel comfortable in - I'm not saying in terms of confidence in rocking that bad ass outfit. Moreover something that is genuinely comfortable yet stylish. This can actually be a lot more difficult than expected. To me, chino's are just that - I don't wear them often enough and I actually have no idea why I don't - something about raw denim just gets me every time.
But today, I've managed to mix the two together with ease and comfort. A pair of plain and simple chinos altered to fit your body shape is something your wardrobe needs. If it's something you don't have yet then holy hell, get on it asap! I cannot begin to explain why altering clothes to fit you can benefit your overall look. The blend of the distressed denim jacket against the streamlined chino construction is what gets me here. And it gets me everytime!
The tones and the difference in textures weaved into the fabrics makes for a beautiful contrast that seamlessly guides your eyes from top to bottom. Try it.
