My first ever J&B Met.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m speaking about, lemme give you a brief explanation. The Met, is pretty much a day at the horse races, It’s the place to be seen and the who’s who of everything is there. This means lots of parties, with lots of canapés and lots of fashion.
I was very excited.
I had been lucky enough to win tickets on twitter with a fashion friend and Sunglass Hut. It was an amazing prize that made us VVIP (yep, double ‘V’, like a boss) with everything we could possibly want all day including a little trip to Sunglasses hut to pick up a little fashion something for our eyes.
Now, dressing for the met is not just a case of being dapper. It requires a little more, bravery as you’ll see in some outfits later in the post. I took a more “traditional” approach and went in the J&B brand colours, red and yellow.
The details of this outfit are as follows:
Aviator sunglasses by RayBan
Navy skinny chinos by Topman
Yellow oxford shirt by Mr Price
Red belt by Country Road (available at Woolworths)
Vintage show pony lapel pin a gift from Misha
Micro Houndstooth Arthurs hank pocket square by Heywood 1922
This day was just to fun not to share. So here goes.
Firstly I thought it was high time the lovely lady behind the lens got some air time, after all, she’s much easier on the eyes than me, and looked particularly beautiful on the day.
The room was of course filled with all kinds of fabulous people, and I finally got to meet some people I’ve been wanting to meet for a long time, singer songwriter Chaid Saaiman, Mr PR extraordinaire Thulane Hadebe and of course brand manager of Sunglass Hut Wedaad Adams.
I picked out some really fun gents outfits that I wanted to share, mostly the kind of stuff I wish I was brave enough to wear out the house. Everything from sleeveless shirts to printed pants.
The ladies were definitely not to be outshone and for the benefit of the ladies who read this blog, as well as the gents who just like looking at beautiful ladies, I’ve included some shots here.
Something I picked up that I really wanted to share on the mens fashion from was the interesting use of bow ties, or at least, mens accessories where bow ties normally are. Just take a look.
Lastly for all of those who just want to get a sneak peek at what was going on and who was dressed in what, I went around taking some pics of what and who I thought stood out of the crowd. Enjoy.
What an awesome day, thanks again a fashion friend and Sunglass hut.
Okay. Stay Fancy.
