Final Touch: How to Bring on the Edge
The Beatles wore them, David Bowie always looked sharp in one; The Kills’ Jamie Hince made baby blue on blue work on his wedding day to Kate Moss, proving that there’s really nothing more rock’n’roll than head-to-toe attitude in tailored form. A perfectly tailored suit, in all its structured glory, can easily look undone, as long as the man wearing it knows how to accessorize with rock-star edge.
To get the look bands like Interpol and rebellious rock stars like Pete Doherty, who have done their fair share to give the suit some serious badass cred, start by reclaiming the dark blue suit from Wall Street by pairing it with a light blue dress shirt. Then accessorize:
Tie on a royal blue skinny tie to give the ensemble a fashionable dose of garage rock revival throwback style. The most notorious bad boys in history still had concert commitments and studio appointments, so strap on a bold stainless steel watch to show you’re not just some rebel without a cause.
Top off the look with studded slip-on loafers in Black Watch. These slippers featuring the famous blue, green and black tartan nod to punk fashion while still looking 21st century bad boy sharp.
