As always enamored with armor, menswear’s big fixation with men in uniform is usually manifested in military jackets and and camo prints. But it wasn’t until SS16 that boys’ fashion decided to take a walk on the wild side. Wide brim fedoras, field jackets, bush shirts, multi-pocketed gilets, even the not-for-everyone tanksuits were introduced to men’s’ wardrobe. Many of the top men designers resorted to early 90s safari for inspiration. It was like the whole cast (including the extras) of Desert Rats and Out Of Africa rushed the boy’s runways.
While military influences still march right along side menswear with all shades of army green and khaki to have taken over the color pallet of men’s style, the Safari-inspired look is for the more classicists in our midst.
Modern safari aviator! It’s time to channel my inner aerial expeditionary and fly over fashion wilderness. (Think Top Gun meets Indiana Jones… Ok I’m done with movie references already).
Pulling this one off properly is about focusing on two things: Color palette and key pieces.
Key piece #1:
Aviator Bomber. It’s vintage, over-sized and exactly the type of jacket I would be crushing on! Straight outta London’s Sunday UpMarket, this vintage gem holds a special place in my heart…and my wardrobe
Key piece #2:
The fedora! This time it doesn’t only match my look perfectly but also fits right into the Safari Aesthetic like a mo-fo.
Color Pallet: Dessert beige and khaki. Enter my vintage high-waisted safari smart trouser and my khaki roll neck jumper.
Topping up my look with my gold mirror lens sunglasses by Sunday Somewhere from my collaboration with Fusion Retail Concept Cyprus. #eyecatching #eyecandies
Mission accomplished! Meet the crush-worthy classic man in uniform: the style savvy adventurer.
