Streetwear Fit is a segment dedicated to teaming up sneakers with outfits that are easy, everyday wear. As you know, I focus on functional dressing rather than fancy, this is my way of introducing the audience to easy and simple fits. Along the way, I also introduce you to brands that are relevant in the segment.
To kick things off, as per usual, a shopping haul and sneaker unboxing video from my YouTube Channel
I was back in Bangalore to pack my stuff up for the final move to Bombay. When I was there, half my shipments that were lying unattended were waiting for me. It felt like Christmas in June. Can’t beat that feeling.
I synced up with Vishal to check if he would want to shoot a few images before we both got on the road trip that spans over 1000 kms across states. He swung by for coffee and we headed up to my terrace to fire a few shots.
As always, this is yet another monochromatic look, with the only pop of color being that yellow Tiger print on the Patta tee. I think it is a Liger, to be honest, and not a Tiger.
Also, the Tiger is the national animal of India, if you did not know that.
There isn’t a lot to say about the fit. But I must point out this new eyewear brand I discovered, called Chimi. You would know by now I love my Off White X Warby Parker Medium sunglasses and they are the only ones I wear. I wanted to find a worthy replacement and found them in these shades. The build quality is substantial and they feel absolutely amazing.
As for the Air Jordan 11 Cap and Gown, I wanted an all black and stealthy sneaker to perhaps wear to a black-tie event. Not sure if I will be invited to one, because people think I only wear shorts or whatever. But doesn’t hurt to keep your options open. The sneakers run true to size but they are stiff as F! That is something you ought to be aware of before you get yourself a pair.
Pants: Stone Island
Sunglasses: Chimi Eyewear
