Our weekly “Style Guide” for the latest trends!
Each week we will be styling our THRDS presenter Mr. Jay London in four unique ways, to showcase variations of how a key item of the season can be worn. This feature is our humble way of providing our readers with different style suggestions. We hope to guide and assist you with making good fashion choices, and show how to wear your favourite pieces.
The Brooklyn Circus/BKC is an American menswear brand. Founder Ouigi Theodore, a predominant influence in the Brooklyn fashion scene and internationally. The brand incorporates an appreciation of heritage, telling stories of style throughout American history. Old meets new in this unique fashion fusion. Here at THRDS we are big fans of the brand, so for this week’s How to Style, we selected our 4 favourite jackets from the collection, to keep you warm this winter.
Sartorial – For this look, we choose the grey mohair BKC blazer. Wanting the wool knit blazer to be our focus, we choose pieces that complemented the colour and texture of the blazer. This was achieved by adding a white shirt from Element, textured suit pants from Topman, and a scarf from Harry Steadman. We’ve kept it simple, however in our footwear choice, we took the opportunity to add a hint of colour with green shoes from Swear.
Trendy – Our trendy looks always seem to be our most experimental ones, however once in a while less is more. So with this look we chose the stripped overcoat from BKC and created a suited and booted look around it. Our trendy guy might just have to occasionally wear a suit to work, so to complement the overcoat and keep it as the focal point of the look, we added complementing blue hues with a navy suit pant from Topman , a light blue shirt from Primark, and navy leather shoes from Penguin.
Casual – We feel that BKc varsity collection is the perfect solution for the casual characters, whose interest is growing. We’ve kept it comfy and weather appropriate, yet we have upped the standards. So we’ve got a Supremebeing shirt underneath a knitted jumper from Levis, some comfy jeans from Uniqlo and boots from Redwing. Then we’ve given the look a showstopper in form of the BKc Shelby Varsity Vest.
Hipster – We’ve styled our look around the Bkc Sideline Jacket. This is a seasonal jacket, making it the perfect solution for the range of seasons provided by the weather we get in London on a daily basis. An ideal piece for our man about town. Keeping the look fresh, we’ve added colour through the orange Harry Steadman knit beanie and a shirt from Supremebeing. We’ve then combined jeans from D.I.E and some suede sneakers from Radii to create a casual comfort.
