Today’s outfit features one of my favourite jackets from my favourite Japanese brand – Visvim. I’ve been wearing this M65 style jacket nearly everywhere I go and I’m convinced that every guy should have a military style jacket in his closet. This particular jacket is made in Japan and like much of the clothing that is produced there, there’s a high level of detail that has gone into this piece.
It’s worth noting that this jacket is a modern take on a traditional military style classic. The one I’m wearing is made made from gor-tex (as opposed to cotton) meaning that it’s waterproof, windproof, breathable, lightweight and durable – perfect for the transition from Winter to Spring. It’s also beige, which is a nice change from the regular wave of black jackets that we see in Melbourne during the colder months (if you’re from Melbourne you’ll know what I mean!)
Up top, I’ve paired this outer layer with a simple Carhartt light wash denim shirt and an a plain white Uniqlo supima cotton tee. Down below I’ve gone with a navy Uniqlo vintage flat front chino, which I have multiple pairs of in different colours. On my feet I’m wearing a pair of Visvim heavy suede boots. They’re not always the best option when it’s raining or wet, however I like to throw these on to add some contrast and texture.
Lastly I picked up this bag from French Connection a few years ago since I liked the colour, size and simplicity of it’s design. It’s a medium sized holdall style bag which I use for nearly everything from overnight trips, carry on luggage, or even just packing my laptop, camera and notebook if I’m out and about. Enjoy.
