The Weekly Outfit: Momma’s Boy

“Did you eat properly?”
“Yes. (cheap frozen pizza for 7 day in a row.)”
“How is college going for you?”
“Well. (I dropped out half a year ago.)”
“Are you still seeing that girl? She is really nice.”
“Kind of. (She left me last month.)”
“Do you need money?”
“Errrrr… (Yes, yes, please)”

Even if it mostly manifests itself in pain in the ass questioning and frustrating misunderstandings, always keep in mind this quintessential and sometimes harsh truth: No love lasts forever, except the one a mother feels for her children.
So give back some of that love by starting out with a nice and simple gesture every mother – and women in general – will appreciate. Look your best on upcoming Mother’s Day with our latest Weekly Outfit suggestion. See it after the jump.

A Kind Of Guise -Foro Sol Cardigan

There is definitely no better way to smarten up your outfit while keeping it casual than by rocking a decent cardigan. The one above by Munich-based brand A Kind Of Guise is made of soft cotton for maximum wearing comfort. Get it at cultizm.

 

Hartford – Boats Print Shirt

The recent Babar the Elephant x Soulland collaboration proved #menswear and #cute are by no means contradictions anymore. However, as the highly sought-after collection is by now pretty much sold out, there are still plenty of alternatives that cater to your inner child. Take the above shirt by Hartford for example: A classic clean cut with a dash of children’s book-like playfulness make for a definite summer must-have. You can cop one over at PRESENT.

 

Lacoste Live – Bermuda Shorts Light Blue

Long time frowned upon, shorts are by now an essential mesnwear staple. Whether you go for one of those super skimpy one’s as seen with French brand Carven, or for a more traditional length like these by Lacoste LIVE, it’s up to you. But don’t go without them this summer. Pick up a pair now over at SOTO.

 

Vans – Sk8-Hi Zip LX

Already around for over three decades, and spawning numerous renditions and collaborations, the Vans Sk8-Hi has definitely proved it’s sartorial excellence without compromising to its distinct air of adolescent rebelliousness. Get your pair now at Firmament.

 

Casio G-Shock – GA-300-7AER Watch

Every nineties kid either had one or at least desperately tried to convince its parents of the vital importance of owning a chunky piece of plastic called G-Shock. When I finally got one for my 12th birthday, it immediately underwent an extensive endurance test during which I chucked and tossed it around, repeatedly whipping my desk with it, trying to debunk the superior shock resistance of my newly aquired status symbol. To cut a long story short, i succeded. Try it yourself and get a G-Shock now at endclothing.

 

 Eastpak – Pak’R Backpack

Back in the nineties getting your parent’s to buy you a JanSport daypack – or Eastpak if you happen to grow up on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean – was a important step in increasing your social value in elementary school. Because yeah… all the cool kids had them. Unaware of the pitfalls revolving around the right choice of luggage for a prepubescent 10-year-old who desperately wants to fit in with the cool crowd and apparently pre-occupied with utilitarian aspects, my mom finally got me one… with a leather bottom #FML. But as I’m older and wiser now, and a well respected member of the Highsnobiety editorial team, I hereby declare leather bottoms cool. So if you want to fit in you better hurry over to asos and get yourself that backpack now.
