Welcome to the Peacock Revolution

There is a war going on. A war against machoism. What is machoism? Machoism, as defined by myself, is the belief that in order to be a man in today's society one should be a dirty, grungy, obtuse, hairy, bare-knuckle dragging, neandertal. No more! I am declaring war on machoism. This blog will forge a revolution. A Peacock Revolution!

Join me in the battle against bad fashion!

Get the Look: Shipwrecked!

Greetings my stylish friends,

I was cruising the internet the other day looking for the hottest looks the net has to offer.  So as always I go to my tried and true: GQ.com.  They always have the latest looks and the most fashionable gents.

As I combed through their runway archives for Fall 2011 I came across this handsome look...

I love this look.  It's from the Balmain collection for the aforementioned season.  It features a striped shirt, rugged skinny jeans, wellington-style boots, and a large double-breasted peacoat.  The striped shirt and the boots stamp an out-at-sea feel to this look.

Now let's break it down step-by-step:

Step 1: Striped Shirt

ASOS Selected Wardour Split Neck Stripe Shirt
Retail: $66
Though not red it still bears a nautical theme.

Step 2: Rugged Skinny Jeans

Diesel Larkee T 8Y9 Tapered Carrot Jeans at ASOS
Retail: $155
Whether tapered or skinny, jeans that become narrow at the ankles are the best when it comes to stuffing them in the boots.

Step 3: Wellington-style boots

Frank Wright Navajo Boots at ASOS
Retail: $121
The boots trend is still burning strong for men.  Though these aren't quite wellington-style, any boot will do just fine.

Step 4: Double-Breasted Peacoat

River Island Long Military Jacket at ASOS
Even though it isn't a peacoat, it is double-breasted, and when unbuttoned it will give the same look as above.  Plus it is an awesome looking jacket.

Optional Step: Rain Boot

Kenneth Cole Electric Rain Rubber Boot
These beauties are for those days when there is an actual chance of drowning by simply stepping outside.

This completes it. Happy Sailing (I know that was corny, but what do you want from me)
