Have been trying to post this look for two days already. GOt frustrating because the file wont just load. After a million attmepts i gave up. Either because the signal is too weak here in Typhoon stricken Manila or theres a gltch in lb.
Anyways im here about to eat my lunch and i thought about to give another try in posting this look. I was a bit unnerved at first because i dont plan to post his look at this time since I have a scheduled time for posting but lo and behold the post came through. My jaw dropped. After my millionth try. It finally came through. So anyways, I decided to post it. Pheww.

Angsty much? yup.


About the look:
Have been lusting over this jacket from Zxander Tan since last year. Finally I got to buy it. Zxander told me the fabric used in this jacket is vintage. No wonder the textrue and shine looks so much different from the usual menswear fabrics we see now. I love the lustrous silk shine and the rich olive hue. And the way Zxander approached the design of the jacket deconsructing the typical mens jacket and transforming it into a functional stylish hybrid jacket. It has elements of the mao jacket, kimono, military/band jacket and at the same time a steampunk aesthetic. Thats why i love this jacket. Its a true example of postmodernist design which I am an advocate of. Why wear a boring suit when you can wear something like this. :)

Wow! You look great Andre!
I really love this look of yours more than I usually do. The olive jacket is really nice and sophisticated ; Olive is one of my favourite color and I love to pair it with black or grey, just like you did. Plus the metallic pants go perfectly with the whole ensemble. This is an absolutely flawless outfit! The shoes are incredible as well!

I noticed that you posted this look at the "wrong" hour but surprise is also great!
I also know how postmodern your style is, this jacket is a perfect choice !
