Thinspiration: “New York”

10 Nov


Still coat shopping and what are the odds that I find another editorial with David Agbodji modeling the latest American menswear outerwear in a Korean magazine “Arena Homme” shot by Shin Hyuna in New York… the irony. Nevertheless, outerwear is the important element of your fall/winter ensemble, its the first thing onlookers see when you enter a room, the only thing you notice while in the streets and it can either kill or save your silhouette.

As I ranted yesterday the coat of the moment is the full length coat or trench no matter the texture, color or mode. What I didn’t consider is that I’m 6 ft tall and for those of you that are a bit shorter and can’t quite pull of a full length coat, I suggest you go for a mid-length. You’ll get the same streamlined effect without being engulfed. Notice how Barry Marryshow styled the stilt model in different lengths, more so take a gander at the different aesthetics how they are paired with different types of shoes. You can find the season favorite to suit your fancy with ease.

Now the hard part is getting your cheekbones to protruded like the rawboned David Agbodji. I wonder what’s his secret because I’m down to 250 calories a day and 7 miles runs to no prevail. What do I have to do; start eating air?
