Five stereotypical Melbourne Men

1. I spent all my money on clothes. I look fresh, but I’m starving

You know the saying “the struggle is real”? that term was probably coined by one of these Melbourne men. They’ll happily splurge on that unnecessary fifth Tommy Hilfiger shirt in that hideous colour that they’ll never wear; and their wardrobe is probably a lot more impressive than yours is, but unless their eating a home cooked meal, they’re probably starving (maybe that’s how they fit into their super skinny chinos?)

2. I spent all my money on my car and now I look like I just got out of bed

(and they’re not even wearing Peter Alexander pyjamas) ?

3. I drink organic coffee and talk about indie music all day

 

Have you ever read a book and imagined that perfect, cultured man with the flannel shirt and skinny jeans, who most likely plays guitar and can recite passages from literary classics while serenading the main character who you can totally relate to?

Well Melbourne is full of them and you can find your own at indie cafes, book stores, and the next Rubens gig.

4. Mum and Dad sent me to a private school and now I intern at a law firm (did you notice my Rolex as I told you that?)

These guys are all about polo shirts, knitted jumpers and Daniel Wellington watches (when they get tired of looking down on their dad’s old Rolex)

These guys are so preppy it’s like they’ve stolen directly from Nate Archibald’s costume wardrobe and didn’t think we’d notice.

5. I go to Rats every weekend and only shop at General Pants

Everyone loves a good banger but not quite as much as these guys do. In case you weren’t sure, STUSSY for them is like a drug and they won’t make out with anyone who isn’t wearing matching Adidas Superstars.

Thanks for a fab year, 2015

Where do I even begin to describe 2015?

2015 was the year that I met amazing people and made friends I know will be around for a long time.

2015 was the year that I worked my ass off and reached my goals.

2015 was the year that I got a taste of the real world and thrived from it.

James Franco: Gracing The Fashion Journals with our very first Men’s fashion post!

James Franco

James Franco: actor, director, screenwriter, producer, poet, author, teacher and The Fashion Journal’s first ever candidate for a Men’s fashion post!

Mr. Franco is a modest style icon for men, as his casual, elegant, simple style is surprisingly very achievable with minimal effort. James’ outfits consist of many basic items that are paired with statement jackets, shoes and accessories to make his outfits stand apart from the rest (in a very handsome way may I add) Using basics such as jeans, plain t-shirts and elaborating the outfit with a leather, denim, or corduroy jacket you too can achieve a look similar to that of James Franco.

Plus, who said that you can only wear suits to a wedding? If you’re looking for an instant “Ooh kill em'” outfit, suit up! Suit pants, a printed top (with colours that match the colour of the suit) and the matching blazer will achieve a well put-together look, once again with very minimal effort!
