What caught my eye: The looks I’m drawn to are often inspired by fashion trends I see while traveling or what I’m currently researching. When I spotted Dave, I had recently been looking into surf culture in Southern California and the men’s fashion within it.
To sum it up,this style includes slim jeans, classic low-top sneakers like Vans, slim-fitted flannel shirts, and often great hair. Leave it to California to take a fairly rugged look and make it chic. Although Dave isn’t from California, his look was pretty much spot-on with what I had been researching, which is what drew me to take his picture.
It may not be the most aggressive look I’ve featured but it represents a very popular style for men in their 20s. It’s pretty much how all my surfing friends dress out of the water.
