Thinspiration: Double Checking

23 Nov

Double Checking
Well I’m packing to go home for the holiday and I’ve yet to find anything to wear to Thanksgiving dinner. If your family functions are anything like mine you know that your attire is more important and scrutinized than any fashion week or first day of school wardrobe. You haven’t seen those people in about year and all they have been seeing are Facebook and Instagram pictures of you trapezing around in awesome designer duds.

Of course they expect nothing less hence the reason they are probably out shopping right now. On top of that, because I only go home for three occasions: holidays (Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas), weddings and funerals my parents take this opportunity to flaunt me around to their church members, distant relatives and friends like I just finished the “Biggest Loser.” In other words: I have to look like a before and after picture.

For you guy who haven’t a clue what look to go for then skim this editorial of my two personal ‘thinspiration’ models Corey Baptiste & Sacha M’baye in the The FT-How To Spend It magazine titled “Double Checking” photographed/styled by Damian Foxe.

Unless you were busy in the gym during fall/winter fashion week you’d know that the biggest print for males to rock this season is checkered howbeit, Hounds-tooth, Prince of Whales, tartan and tattersall. In case you missed it take a peek at Hilfiger’s collection.

I have been on the prowl for a checkered suit (in my price range of course) to dine in this Thursday. I don’t do too much eating but I do enjoy being the eye dessert while everyone is making a massacre of the dinner table and their gut. Checks are a classic menswear suit staple just like the grey suit but, like every classic it has to be updated every so often and the creations from these designers do just that. Whether you like to be engulfed in a fabric or show of your physique with a fitted look they got you covered even a variety of different weight and fabrics.

I feel like this spread did a superb job of capturing all the different styling aesthetic while showing off a singular trend. Check them out and hopefully you get ‘thinspired’.

    “Eye dessert” — I love that! I, too, seriously contemplate what I will wear for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is truly a full-day fashion show.
