    The Breakdown

    • This look requires a strong understanding of fashion and style to pull off.
    • At its centerpiece is the love for mixing and matching vintage clothing. The leather jacket is reminiscent of the 1920s bad guy in movies (James Dean). The jeans and boots further illustrate a dark, bland exterior.
    • The model’s pose is perfect in illustrating a carefree and yet rebellious vibe to the shoot.
    • The model’s expression is that of a warm, alpha coolness. The smoke in his hand shows the contradiction of his smooth way of walking through life while destroying himself at the same time
    • Gauge earrings in general add dominance and masculinity and in this case suits the wearer’s hair color and outfit very well

    Damn, I need to get myself some gray skinny jeans and military boots!

    Yeah, that is a sick look isn’t it. These guys know their stuff. Vintage stores, $30 jackets… style isn’t about money. It’s about personality. That can’t be ‘bought’

    hehe so true. The boots are Corcoran’s (rangers from US paras). You can get them for less than $40 too.
