McQueen 08

Amyla Wakowski (in the alternate male guise of Korben Ulrik)

Amyla says:

As I scanned through the current looks for men on McQueen's shop website, I noted the trends: snugly fit tops and jackets, loose jeans or trousers rolled at the hem, colors within a white/gray/blue pallete (from pale blue to dark navy). I traveled to a variety of shops seeking out the elements for my own McQueen-inspired ensemble, but found myself falling back on favorite brands when it came time to pay and dress.

I chose this many-buttoned coat from Schadenfreude, the NosferCoat, worn here as the shorter version without trenchy bits. The ascot and shirt beneath are both from Pig. The Burt jeans from artilleri were my first thought when looking at all the rolled-up pants on the McQueen shop site, although I didn't roll my hems quite up to high-water status, perhaps! The short workboots are from HOC Industries (House of Curios). I shopped and shopped looking for a ring, thinking perhaps I'd look for a skull ring similar to the one in McQueen's women's collection, but finally settled on something a bit more delicate and in line with my own sensibilities, the Auberon Ring from EarthStones.
