Do people still photograph themselves next to signs? Juxtaposing themselves with a day-to-day functional message in the hope of creating something amusing? I’m trying and failing above. ‘Caution, Uneven Surface’? What does that even mean in relation to me in this image? Nothing. That’s what. No hidden meaning, no overt meaning. Just nothing. And with that, I do my bit to help fill the internet with poorly judged simpletonism.
I recently attended a friend’s Birthday bash at a bar in Battersea. I chose to wear clothes. These are thems.
A side from a trusty Superior Labor headpiece, I’m taking a new EG Bedford (in dungaree cloth) for a spin. Fairly lightweight, but crisp, I like the way the stitching pops. I’m also giving a tab collared, Oliver Spencer shirt a go, fairly unspectacular really, but the granddad shape works well as a base for the detail rich blazer. I tossed on my Filson vest too – both for warmth, but I also like how the shirt hangs beneath. I just find it pleasing. I’m sure this is very interesting for you.
The shoes are a moderate to big deal, depending on your natural excitement level around handmade American shoes. They’re this season’s Yuketens and boast a raptor-like tread. Perfect for…? Navigating cattle grids. And stairs. And other uneven surfaces.
