EQVVS Lookbook #016 | Honest gear for the honest guy
This outfit for the lookbook is a bit of an homage to Universal Works (our county neighbour's over in Nottingham) actually, who are renowned for cheffing up lovely contemporary clothing with an honest aesthetic for the honest guy.
Dropping on the virtual shelves of EQVVS this year, the collection is full to the brim with military inspired garms, clean sauve cuts and timeless silhouettes. So, for those among us who are sniffing out some clobber with a bit of longevity, look no further. This one's lovely.
Wool blends and smart tailoring
Flower Fleece Zip Gilet by Universal Works
With the colour palette of your nans living room in the 1970's (which we happen to love at EQVVS HQ) this wool blend gilet works as pretty swanky mid-layer to add a pop of colour to an otherwise camouflage-approved outfit.
Fatigue Jacket by Universal Works
If you know your military gear, you know all about ‘fatigue’ jackets and pants. Named after the clobber that men wore to work fatigue duty (you know, menial chores) in the army, this jacket has been constructed by some real workwear connoisseur's. Updated in an oversized fit, with pockets to the chest and lower part of the jacket.
Fatigue Pants by Universal Works
Copy and paste the above. Another military inspired option, in a matching colourway. Cut in a relaxed fit through the thigh these pants are an essential in your wardrobe. Bit less formal than proper dress trousers, but have a bit more of a smart appeal over cargos or baggy jeans.
And the rest:
Chunky Knit Socks:
A Barbour Lifestyle special, gone are the days of socks being balled up in the back of your drawer, holes at the heel and the big toe, they're something of an accessory. Throw out the old pairs, they've had their time.
A real staple in the footwear department, Clarks Originals have been serving up these treats for eons now. With a musical entourage including Bob Dylan and the Wu Tang Clan, you've gotta be living under a rock to not have heard of them.
