Those of you who have followed me for a while would know that when it comes to dressing up, I usually get inspiration from the movies I watch or tv series I’m currently hooked on. I don’t religiously read fashion magazines nor go through a lot of menswear blogs–don’t get me wrong, I also get inspiration from those but I get a different kind of excitement when I watch a movie–specifically aesthetically pleasing ones.
I was recently hooked on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I know, pretty random. Set in a magical world full of dragons, trick suitcases, and Victorian fashion. Needless to say, Newt Scamander’s outfit definitely got my attention. The tailored overcoat, wool pants, corduroy vest, bespoke dress shirt, bow tie and leather briefcase–everything was working.
