Welcome to the Street Style Files. This is a column where I provide assistance to struggling street style subjects by advising them on their sock game. Feel free to take notes.
Guys and Girls,
I’d like to say I’m writing to you from the back row of some class I don’t care about, but I’ve decided today (Tuesday) is a mental health day for your boy aka I’m skipping ALL of my classes. I’m so rebellious. You might be wondering what Jake, The Intern does on his self-assigned day(s) off. Well, it’s usually a mixture of sipping espresso, watching soccer, taking a super long shower, and scouring the internet for some sartorial inspiration. Today, most likely due to the death of Four-Pins (RIP), it seems the interwebs are experiencing a drought of dope style content. Don’t fret though because I am here to fill that void. Street Style Files Vol.2, walk with me (and the street style stars). Damn I used a lot of parentheticals today. Whatever.
I imagine this dude is probably a barista/ guy who’s a ‘model’ for his friend’s up and coming brand. I also imagine he has a very angular face—maybe a mix between Rick Owens and some androgynous male model. An angular faced guy should obviously rock a pair of Retrogrades in grey, right?? Duh.
Some Yeezy’s with some non-stacked, non-black denim?? This dude is truly a revolutionary aka doesn’t look like 99% of the people that wear yeezys. And in the interest of a full anti-Kanye look I feel like we need to lace him with some black and white Poets because Kanye once denounced black and white as a duo. How dare he?!
First an anti-Kanye recommendation and now a girl in the street style files? Skipping class has got me feeling very transcendent today. I should do this more often. Anyways, this girl is 100% flames. I know this because she is wearing very masculine clothing and still has got me trippin and stumbling all over my keyboard. Seriously, my imaginary girlfriend should definitely dress like this. Oh right, what socks should she rock? I would send her a pair of Hari Crew in black andddd I’d probably write my number on the packaging with a really lame greeting. Call Me??
Ok. I’m going to finish off my mental health day with some pizza and beer.
Jake, The Intern
