Alastair: Kentish Town, London
Last week I hung out with my friend Alastair in Kentish Town to catch up after a month of travels. When I'm abroad, I feel hyper aware of my surroundings and have been overwhelmed by "summer style". As a man who enjoys the simplicity of black, navy and grey, I was ready to return to a city of simpler design. Wearing a Flying Horse denim jacket and the new Lacoste Straightset trainers, Alastair epitomises what men in the not-so-hot British summer can wear.
Sneakers are a always a point of contention for me but I love the Straightset style for it's combination of luxury and understatement. It's a refined sport-inspired silhouette with premium materials. The Lacoste sentiment is ‘life is a beautiful sport’ and I'd like to think that feeling of performance and elegance to the way I work.
