Always an oldie but a goody, I've been out of touch for quite some time... My apologies! But I'm back in full force. The last few weeks have been absolutely mental for me as I've completely uprooted my old life and made a daring move up north to seek out a calmer living, and more money efficient way of life (if that exists). But anyway, these are a couple of shots from before then!
I'd been searching high and low for some new trousers, particularly loving the fatigue pocket style, y'know, like Stan Rays or Carhartt (I've finally admitted I own too much). So after weeks of deliveries and returns (not to mention one pissed off girlfriend) I finally stumbled across these Edwin Labour Pants in Black in the Coggles sale. I must admit, I was dubious, the pictures weren't exactly flattering showing some super wide ankle game... But I thought it might look alright if I just give it a roll! And it's one of those moments, when I slipped them on, I was just like "yes, these are f**king fantastic" (+ about 10mins of mirror time). So that sent me on a massive black hype, the colour I'd fallen out of love with was renewed with one pair of pants, thank you Edwin. These pants are a solid fit, with a simple design and sturdy canvas material, you really can't go wrong. They are a little high on the ankle but if you pair them with some low Cons, you just can't go wrong!
So in this shoot I went back to my roots, just keep it simple with a bit of black and (off) white. The top half I have devoted to Norse Projects, one of the most basic, high quality brands you may ever stumble across. With their minimal branding and Scandi styles, I have to say, I would love to own more. But for now I've found myself a lovely black long sleeve tee, size Medium, it fits a little tighter than I'd normally wear but kinda makes me look a little fitter than I'd say I actually am, so who's complaining? It's 100% cotton and feels so soft to the touch, I could honestly lounge day and night if I so chose. Next up is the jacket, the Norse Projects Nunk Summer Cotton Jacket. Now this baby, I've had for years and it's honestly such a hidden gem in my wardrobe. Admittedly it's quite a hard piece to wear but when you get it right, you REALLY get it right. I just love the whole style of this jacket from the minimal pockets to the small badge on the left arm. I've rolled the cuffs up as well to accommodate for my short arms... It's got this real nice texture to it, waterproof but doesn't sound like a crisp packet when you move, this jacket personally is an all year rounder, if you've got some cash to splash, splash on this.
