This Guy talks Winter Style

Today, for Man Crush Monday (#mcm) I thought I should share some love for This Guy, my man crush. I asked him to give us a little insight into how he'd describe his style and who he is inspired by.

Style is still a new thing to me because for a long time in the past i didn't care too much about what I put on in the morning. I didn't want to stand out, so I didn't try much at all. My wardrobe was more comfort than trendy. I was basic... print shirt, baggy jeans, skate shoes, the end. It took me a while to realise that it doesn't matter how people see me, what matters is how I see myself, so I dress for me.

I've drawn inspiration from a few man crushes the likes of Brad Pit, Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake... I do love to rock my suit and tie.

This winter has been a testing ground, the urban caveman in me decided to leave my hair long, grow a beard and wear layers. My favourite items right now are my beanie, scarf and Converse high tops. I've come to enjoy pairing my basic v necks with a rolled sleeve open shirt and throwing my oversized leather jacket over it all to brave the elements.

My style is not about a statement, it's about confidence and comfort. How do I pair with my woman? Well she makes me look good and I do my best to compliment her look by leaving the skate shoes at home.
