Back In Black

Black is always versatile. It goes with everything. It looks great sleek and shiny or matte and stealthy. It can be warm or cool, like jazz. Razz-a-matazz. What was I talking about again. Oh, yeah, shiny black goodness.

Like this Limited Ed. Dr. Martens x Alpha Industries MA-1 flight jacket available at Selfridges & Co. If you hadn't noticed, I'm a huge fan of Alpha Industries and their quality outerwear. I have a couple of their jackets, one being a hooded MA-1, which is exceptionally warm and comfortable in the cold winter months. This MA-1 might not get you through the winter, but it will definitely get you through fall in style. Pair it with some shiny black patent leather Doc Martens 1460's or classic Vintage 1460's, spike up your mohawk, and you are ready to do some of that old moon stompin'!

If you aren't into the militaristic punk aesthetic, something a little more subtle, like this stark black Wool Topcoat by Polo, might be more up your alley. This luxuriously expensive topcoat was fashioned in a Northern Italian mill founded in the early 1900s. The blackness is so saturated, no light can escape from this coat.

Of course, if you are not into looking like a total douche, you might want to consider something more Normcore, like this darker-than-dark Interlock Mock-Turtleneck by L.L. Bean. L.L. Bean is the height of Normcore fashion, and what could be more Normcore than reppin' the O.G. Steve Jobs (R.I.P.) in his traditional mock-neck style. Just right for the cooler weather this time of year; not too loose, not too tight. Just Normcore right!
